OK-- 1st turn machine on and advance the cycle to spin 2nd open the lid and pour a bucket of water into the bowl. 3rd-- shut lid and push the start button. keep repeating these steps until the suds have dissipated.the reason for the suds not draining is the pump will not pump out soap and you have to mix the suds with water for the pump to be effective.hope this helps please reply to let me know how you got on.

Sud message on display and stopped working


SUDS error is usually an Overdose of Detergent detected during the Wash Cycle.
The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.

Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.

If none of this fixes it then further testing would require opening of cabinet and follow trouble shooting steps on the tech sheet located inside bottom lower panel. To remove bottom lower panel there are 3-4 screws at bottom of panel remove them and pull out and down on panel to remove.
If you are not comfortable with this I would recommend calling for service.

Sud error message


Hello, The most common cause of the 'sud' alarm is too much detergent, or the detergent that is being used is creating too much suds. It works and alarms off of the motor current draw. The causes and cures listed below are pretty much in order of their commonality; try the first item before the second one, etc. If you can pin the fault on the detergent, try using the least amount of detergent that you can while still getting your clothes clean. With a HE washer, more isn't always better. Read on:

The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If “Sud” is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

Potential Causes

• If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
• Check / Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
• Check Drain Pump
• Check Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check the Pressure Switch
• Check CCU

Replace failed component.

Hope that this helps. Try the empty loads first to clear the detergent. This is the easiest fix.
Best regards, --W/D--

My washer is flashing sud...what do i do?


SUD mean you may have put too much soap in the load. (I'm a technician and I did the same thing this weekend "OOPS") I ran out of HE Detergent and used some I had laying around.

The washer will go through a cycle to get rid of the excess suds. When the cycle completes, just remember to use less detergent OR a high efficiency (HE) Detergent.

If you did not use a different amount or brand of detergent, let me know. Also, if the cycle does not complete, let me know.
