At the end of cycle I find soap suds, a lot, in bottom of machine have tried cycling vegetable oil, still have some suds left


Run the machine empty with a bar of everyday soap (not sure what you have stateside but in the uk it would be something like LUX or SHIELD the solid block type). This should kill the suds already in the machine. If the d/w is creating a lot of suds, it could be because you soaked an item in regular hand wash liquid and didn't rinse it well enough before finishing it in the d/w or the rinse aid is set too high or not dosed correctly. If you had just filled the rinse aid then you may have just been a little heavy handed and allow excess into the machine. When you refill rinse aid and salt it is best to run the shortest wash to clear any residue spilled. Hope this helps

There is still soap running down from the dispenser after each cycle.


Hello creativee798 - If you put regular dish soap in the dispenser, then you could encounter oversudsing and leaking through the door. Here are some tips for minimizing and maybe even eliminating the sudsing problem:


If you have a turkey flavor injector, you may be able to use this item to **** the detergent out of the rinse aid dispenser. Open the dishwasher door and fill the dispenser with water and then **** the liquid out with the injector. You may also be able to use a syringe without a needle that is used to dispense liquid medicine for a child or baby. If you alternate filling the dispenser with water and then removing the liquid, you will eventually dilute or eliminate the detergent that was in the rinse aid dispenser. Once you dilute or eliminate the detergent, fill the dispenser with water. Set the dispenser on the highest setting and run a cycle to see if you see excessive suds during the final rinse cycle. If you don't see a suds problem at the end of the washer cycle, then I recommend taking as much of the water out of the rinse aid dispenser as possible and filling it up with rinse aid and then returning the dispenser to the normal setting that is appropriate for your water hardness. If you are seeing excessive sudsing, then you may need to try to flush the dispenser with the fill and drain routine again. You may need to change the setting to the minimum and see if you detect a suds problem. If not, then allow the dispenser to empty at the minimum setting and then fill it with rinse aid after it is empty. I don't recommend using the heated dry until this problem is completely resolved. This could cause residue to dry on the dishes. If you detect residue on the dishes after the cycle is finished, you may need to wipe the dishes off as you remove them. Excessive suds and possibly residue on dishes would be the only consequence of this mistake. The excessive suds could cause leaking out of the front of the dishwasher door if it is severe enough. The dishwasher may not drain properly if excessive suds are present. The above tips should help you minimize or eliminate these consequences, if any proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Maytag 3000 washer has error message SUD. What is this and how do I fix it. It occurs in the spin cycle every time I wash. I am using Tide HE detergent. It even does it when I use Zero detergent.


The SUD message usually indicates that the sensor detected excess suds and shut down the washer until the suds subsided. To my knowledge, Zero isn't an HE approved detergent so the amount you use has to be really tiny to avoid the SUD error.

With the Tide HE, you still may be using too much detergent. However, you should check the drain pump and outlet hoses. Sometimes a slow or blocked drain can trigger the error. There is often a filter at the drain to keep foreign objects that were left in the clothes from damaging the pump. Make sure that nothing is in this "coin trap". Have a bucket ready when you take apart the drain to catch the water left in the washer. The pump is accessed through the back panel. (Some front-loaders actually have an access panel so you don't have to remove the entire back.)

If you see excessive suds during the wash cycle, run the washer through a complete cycle while it's empty without using any detergent. This often will rinse out any detergent that may have been left from previous loads.

I hope this helps.

How to fix suds lock on Kenmore


The Sd code on most Kenmore Elite HE washers indicates a suds lock (usually caused by excessive suds do to overuse of detergent). Check for the presence of excessive suds in the washer. If you see a lot of foam, the code is likely caused by this problem. You will likely be able to drain the washer and spin out the clothes once the suds dissipate. Run an empty cycle with 1 cup of liquid chlorine bleach through the washer to help rinse out suds residue. If you see foam emerging during the empty cycle, you may need to repeat this process. You can also use Washer Magic or AFFRESH to help clean suds residue out of the washer. These products are available at your local Sears store or the grocery store. Make sure that you are using HE (High Efficiency) detergent in the appropriate quantity. You may need as little as a tablespoon of detergent in a high efficiency washer due to the low water level. You may need even less for a while since the clothes will likely have detergent still dissolved in the fibers that will emerge during subsequent wash cycles.

There are many different models of Kenmore Elite HE washers. If you do not see any apparent problem with excessive suds or need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your Kenmore Elite HE washer.

Stopped on the rinse cycle an give the 5 ud message.


The Sud (5ud) error code indicates a suds lock. This is normally caused by excessive detergent causing too much suds. It can also be caused by not using HE (High Efficiency) detergent. Overloading the washer can also cause this problem. Try running a cycle with no clothes and no detergent added. See if suds emerge in the washer even though no detergent was added.

Dark dirty spots on some clothing items appears on every load.


what you are seeing is suds getting back onto the clothes. make sure you are using HE type soap and not using too much of it.
if you are seeing suds inside the unit, when it is running, then it will "re-deposite" dirty soap residues back onto the clothes.
you need to run a rinse and spin cycle or even a heavy duty cycle with hot water to rinse out any soap that is left in the unit.
not a major problem, just use it differently and it will be ok.

There are excessive suds in the washer even after the rinse cycle


IT COULD BE LEFT OVER SOAP STILL IN THE CLOTHES COMING OUT BUT MORE THAN LIKELY, THERE IS A SOAP DEPOSIT IN THE MACHINE. TRY A COMMERCIAL CLEANER LIKE WASHER MAGIC TO REMOVE IT. IT MAY TAKE A COUPLE DOSES TO CLEAR IT OUT.
