    Are you sure the error code is "5d"? Or, could it be "Sud"? The reason I ask, is that I cannot find a "5d" error code for a Whirlpool Duet.

Thanks, wilbur 24 for the input.

If this is a Suds error, then you will need to run the washer on a Rinse & Spin cycle with no detergent added to get rid of any excess soap. NOTE: You may have to repeat this cycle several times in order to clear the error.

Are you currently using HE detergent? If not, it is strongly recommended that you do. HE rated washers are supposed to use HE detergents because they are formulated for wash tubs that only use 5-7 gallons of water (like yours). If you use regular detergents you are, in affect, adding a higher concentration of soap that is formulated for wash tubs that have a 35 gallon capacity. This can cause damage to the tub and pump seals. Most manufacturers now have a disclaimer that states that the warranty becomes null and void if it is doscovered that you have used the wrong detergent.

In addition, some HE detergents are DOUBLE-CONCENTRATED, which means you only use HALF the amount you normally use. Make sure you read the label carefully to ensure you aren't inadvertently adding too much detergent.

Some other things that can cause over-sudsing include washing too little clothing with too much soap and soft water. Its best to wash full loads with front loaders as they are rated for large capacities. Cut back on the amount of detergent when washing smaller loads. Soft water can make detergents work better and create excessive suds. Try using less detergent.

I hope I don't insult your intelligence. I'm just trying to give you some sound advice in the event that you are not aware of some of the common causes of this problem. I hope this helps you.

I am having the same problem with my washer. It says 5d, there is no space in between for a "U" (suds). My washer also takes an hour and a half to wash a regular load of laundry. It just started doing this. We purchased our washer and dryer about 10 months ago. Never had a problem before this.

5d code


5d is suds warning. The motor is being overworked from too much suds caused by improper measurements or detergent or both.
Cabrio service manual is on my service manual page

Run your washer without detergent a few times. Remember this washer uses less water than a normal washer it has 2 pumps. one recirculates a small amount of water over them clothes. You go adding in a regular amount of clothes and that washer fancy electronics gonna have a cow.

What does 5d mean when it comes up on front load whirlpool duet


5d is: It denotes suds lock (overdose of detergent dectected during the wash cycle).

Chances are you just put too much detergent in, or maybe the wrong detergent - make sure you're using the HE detergent.

These codes and more details are printed on the service technician diagnostic manual that is affixed to the inside of the washer's front panel.

Unplug your washer, and unscrew the three 1/4" socket screws at the bottom of the washer. The manual should be taped to the back of the panel, and the code and some recommended procedures will be right inside.

We keep getting the 5d error code. what could


The 5d (or Sd) error code indicate that the control detected a suds lock or overdose of detergent during the drain or spin phases of the cycle. This is usually caused by overuse of detergent. It can also be caused by using regular detergent instead of HE (High Efficiency) detergent. After the excessive suds dissipate, you can normally clear the fault code and then run a drain/spin to finish the load of laundry. If you detect no excessive suds, this fault code could be caused by a clogged drain system or a failed water level pressure switch. hope this helps....

5d is actually Sd, which means too many suds. Make sure you're using "he" types of laundry detergent.
