Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

Whirlpool Cabrio We have a Whirlpool Cabrio that keeps on posting an SD error code. It is about 9 months old. We have also ran it a couple of times with just water to see if it would flush it out (the suds) Any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated. sean

    The Sd error shows up every time we use the washer to
    run a dark load, usually small, even if no soap at all is used.
    It started doing this about 6 months after we got it and is
    still doing it.

    I'm having the same SD issue. In this case, it was a small load of darks so perhaps that's the common link? We'll see on the next load. For what it's worth, I did try to run it again w/o detergent, but it always gets down to the 5 minute mark sthen flashes SD and goes back to 12 minutes.

    Same problem here. The washer flashes SD and stops spinning leaving the clothes soaking wet. I have even run the same load with no soap at all through two additional cycles and still get the same SD error. Clearly this is a problem with the product.

    I have a Whirlpool Cabrio, which I purchased in Ohio, since the very first time I used it, we had suds... I was able to Jerry-rig a fix by raising the drain tube above the back of the machine. I now live in AZ and am having the same problem I was before, except now I can not raise the tube due to the way my laundry room is set up. I can use 1/8th the amount of HE soap recomended, or not use any at all in an empty washer and get suds.....

    PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    I have same issue. I am using HE detergent with 1/10 of what is recommended (half a teaspoon). Getting SD error. Tried to run the clean cycle with NOTHING getting SD error.

    Looking in on top, no suds are present. Clothes sopping wet. Very annoyed. Washer approximately 15 months old.

    Hi, I had the same problem with my Cabrio It's the same model as yours. I took the pump out and had debris in it not letting it pump all the water out,
    I guess when this happens it gives the Sd code. Runs fine now Hope this helps.

    How do I fix my whirlpool cabrio washer is showing code sD

    Ideally, you just run the washer without any detergent and it'll rinse out all the soap. Try that first. My Cabrio started doing that all the time, then stopped spinning out all the water. It had a host of problems and I opted to replace the washer. Hopefully the water rinse will fix the problem for you.

    I keep getting the F50 code and I also got the SD code a couple of times. I followed the manuals directions and pressed pause/cancel and it still came back. We also unplugged the washer for about 30...

    The "Sd" or Suds Detected error means that you used too much detergent. Reduce the amount of detergent that you use, and properly measure it.
    When you receive the "F50" code, it means that the motor position sensor does not sense that the basket is moving. Remove any remaining packing material from the tub.

    Hope this helps.. :)

    Thanks for using FixYa. Error F1 indicates primary control failure and to resolve this you'll have to replace the machine control assembly. This error should be fixed by whirlpool as its a common issue with whirlpool Cabrio washers, you can call 1-800-253-1301 whirlpool will send a tech. to fix it and pay for the part. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

    Whirlpool Cabrio WTW7600XW on the display screen is says sd and all the lights are blinking

    The manual that came with the machine explains that the Sd error means "suds" and that means you are putting way too much detergent in, or aren't using HE detergent. If you keep doing this you're going to damage your machine. These washers are so water efficient, you only have to use about 1/4 to 1/3 the HE detergent the bottle recommends. Suds-lock has been the culprit behind many a HE washer death since their inception. Hope this helps.

    Whirlpool Cabrio washer is leaking water

    The problem happens when your installer throws away the drain hose u-bend, and stuffs the hose as far as it will go down the drain pipe. When this happens the end of the hose can get pushed under water, which causes the washer to siphon out the wash water when it fills. This results in an LF "Long Fill" error.
    The solution is to get your installer to come back and install the washer properly.
