Question about Whirlpool Duet Sport HT WFW8400TE Washer
I have an error code of Sd or 5d (Whirlpool Duet Sport front loading washer). I am using the recommended amount of HE detergent so i do not believe I am ''oversudzing''. I did use an excessive amount of detergent about 4 or 5 washloads before. But on the last 2 loads I have been getting the Sd (or 5d) error. Any idea what it might be?
It means Suds Lock(Overdose of Detergent Detected During The Wash Cycle).If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases,the washer will fill 4 litres of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling,the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.
If too much detergent was used:
– Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
– Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump,pressure switch and Central Control Unit(CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test.
