A BEST AND DETAILED SOLUTION TO CODE F2 AND SUD ERROR MESSAGE.

If you are getting an F2 error message or a SUD error message, and are observing some water in the tub that is not draining at end of cycle, and your washi cycle is taking a lot longer that normal to complete,then here is what to do.

This solution is easy, and will take no more that 15 minutes, from start to finish, and most of that time is in the --prep-- (getting tools, towels, etc.). This WILL save you a expensive service call.

There are 3 small 9/32 hex head screws that hold the front panel on. The front panel I'm speaking of is --below-- the washer window.
These screws can be found::

a. if you have the optional washer storage drawer unit,, they can be found by opening the drawer, and observing the 3 screws (left, middle, and right side, that hold the front panel on.
or
b. if you DONT have the optional drawer assembly, then they are found on the front, bottom, of the washer, again holding the front panel on the washer.

1. unscrew the 3 hex head screws (9/32 socket or nut driver size)
2. lower/remove the front panel, and set it asisde on some towels, so as not to scratch the front panel.
3. get something now to soak up at least a gallon of water that WILL empty onto the floor.
4. observe large WHITE drain cap, at front center of washer.
5. unscew white drain cap --WARNING-- lots of water WILL drain out when you loosen the white cap. Once all the water is out, remove and take out the filter trap.
6. clean out the front and bottom of the filter trap. I'm sure lint, and gosh knows what else have cloged some of the holes
7. wipe out the inside of the housing for the filter trap (observe lots of -gunk- there too).
8 put back in filter trap, tighten white cap, and put front panel on washer with same 9/32 screws you took off earlier.

Now I ran a test --express wash-- cycle, just to be sure all was OK,, and it was.

Now go get your wife and have her complete that laundry that was waiting for the washer to get repaired. OK sorry,, maybe you should just do the laundry your self, and get some points later.

Hope this step by step was helpful... Have a great day.

SOURCE: What causes the SUDS error code What sensor is

Hi Ron,

I found most of this on another site, and am including it here for your enjoyment. The problems are listed sort of in progression; try step 1 before 2, etc. It sounds like the tech gave you the most common cause and solution, but it sounds like two cycles may be necessary to rule out the detergent solution.....it usually is though. But WAIT! There's MORE!

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 Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check / Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
• Check Drain Pump
• Check the Pressure Switch
• Check CCU

Replace failed component.
I hope you found this to be of help, and at least mildly entertaining!
Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rate his solution!

SOURCE: i have a maytag bravos washing and it keeps giving

Your code Sd is most likely related to 'slow drain', which can be the pump in the machine or the drain behind it. Check to be sure the drain is clearing quickly enough and if so, have the pump on the washer checked. In the meantime, if you hit cancel and let it sit a bit then hit start, it should take right off and finish the cycle. Hope this helps!

Error code sd


Hi,

sd means suds, for either the wrong soap was added or just had too much soap. Rinse out washer, you can use a small cap full of oil (like the oil cap) to deactivate the soap. Then rinse out washer again, this should fix or correct this issue.

Good Luck

I have an error code on maytag washer model # mtw6600tbo what does code mean


Error codes are given whenever the washer has a problem. Could be overuse of soap to overloaded clothes. Who knows? You ain't said what the error code is. Their are several styles of these machines. The Oasis, the Bravos, and the Cabrio are all tailored after the Fisher and Paykel washers. I have written a tip which features the error codes HERE

Maytag 3000series front loader model number mhwe300vf00 on the display it says sud what does that mean


Being a high efficiency washer, this model uses less water. Not all the soap suds have not been rinsed away. Most likely you are using the wrong detergent. Use detergent with the he label on it.

Error code 5d?


Hi
This is actually a SD code meaning to many suds. The machine will drain out mid-cycle when you push stop. You can then start the load over without adding any additional soap. Make sure you use the recommended amount of HE soap.
thanks for contacting fixya.com

Error code SD


I work for an appliance company in the service department, and what this really means is that you could have a suds build up in your machine, or that you used too much soap on this particular cycle. If starting over does not work, you can buy a product called washer magic at almost any store and it will clean your machine out. Also, running vinegar through the machine will make any suds dissapate.
