Make sure there is enough room in pipe for the drain hose and a little bit extra for air flow. If the is correct than use a drain cleaner. It sounds like the drain my be getting clogged and when the washer drains it does not drain fast enough so it starts backing up.

I have a Samsung eco bubble WF1804WPU model that started showing the error message SUD. Any time it happens the machine stops washing as if paused and I have to press the pause button twice for it to start...


The SUD error indicates an excessive amount of soap suds in the wash. It will be difficult for the machine to rinse / spin all the soap out during the cycle, and may need to be run thru the cycle again (do not add any more detergent!).

Remedy:

Stop using regular detergents! Front loaders specifically call for "HE" (High Efficiency) detergents as they require less detergent and clean better with the reduced amount of water in these machines. Look for your favorite brand and select the one with the distinctive HE logo show below:

Use only the amount as directed on the bottle - do not use too much. Clothes should come out clean and soap free - and the SUD error should no longer appear - if it continues - double check the amount of detergent you're using as it is probably still too much.

Good luck!

How do I get an lg washer model number wm2301wh into a test mode


The machine tests itself when power is applied, if there is a problem it will indicate the problem via an error code on the display. If you suspect that the machine is not rinsing properly I assume that there are soap suds or residue on the clothes.
This is usually an indication that you're using too much detergent for the clothes you are washing. Try reducing the amount of detergent by half. Then, if the clothes do not appear to be as clean as they should be, increase the amount slightly for each load, until the clothes do get clean.

My GE Profile washing machine leaves soap suds in the bottom and on the clothes. I use Cheer liquid detergent. My husband says it is because of placing too heavy of items, such as towels, in the machine....


Use ONLY the recommended amount of detergent per the label on the detergent.
Pour detergent in the tub first then start the water,then add the laundry.
Do not overload the machine.
Use a bathroom scale to weigh 12-15 pounds of laundry and no more.
Big tubs invite more laundry.
Don't be fooled by a big tub.

It flash's SUDs during the cycle.what does it mean and what can i do to stop it from doing it


The SUD message indicates the control or pressure switch senses suds in the water. Run the machine empty with hot water only to clear any soap residue out of the machine. Cut back on the amount of soap used and use only HE detergent in the machine.

MAYTAG SAV2555AWW TOP LOADER. SUDS RUNNING OUT THE HOSE DOWN WALL. RAN 2.5 GALLONS OF VINEGAR THRU. PUMP IS CLEAR OF SOAP RESIDUE. NO SOAP RESIDUE VISIBLE ANYWHERE.


Sounds like the house drain can't handle the output from the washer's pump. Try to use the proper amount of detergent to reduce suds level. You might have to increase the size of the hose drain spout with duct tape so that it fits into the house drain tightly. Hope this helps!

Flashing F-21 and SD wont finish a load


Your washer is designed to use a TINY amount of water. This conserves water and takes less energy to heat the water. Since it is so little water used any amount above a teaspoonful of detergent will reek havoc with the delicate controls on the machine. F21 Long drain Possible cause: Clogged filter, clogged/failed pump.82f0c42.jpg Sud= Suds lock detergent overdose. Too much detergent, the wrong stuff, added to the wrong compartment, you gotta use HE soap and you gotta use the correct amount. You get that computer thinking suds is in there and the machine is gonna go into a tailspin. Because of the low amount of water a9be475.jpg
used in HE machines, it is important
to use an HE detergent (low sudsing)
which is specially formulated to work
best under these conditions. The two
most important considerations
of a front loading washer are suds
control and soil concentration.
First, the tumbling action in an
HE machine generates
more suds than a top loader.
Tumbling the clothes in and out of the
water breaks the water surface
causing air to be trapped in the solution,
creating suds or foam. Multiple problems
can occur from oversudsing, such as
flooding from suds overflowing out of
the machine, formation of a suds cushion
during the tumbling action which reduces
mechanical energy,and “suds lock” which prevents
the machine from effectively spinning out the
water. In the situation of suds lock, the
machine trys to FIX the foaming problema by
stopping the cycle momentarily to allow
the suds to dissipate and then adding cold
water. This routine the machine goes
through to correct for over-sudsing results
in loss of energy and water savings and
can significantly lengthen the cycle time
(sometimes by as much as 2x). HE detergents
prevent over-sudsing and allow for
better rinsing of suds. HE detergent matters in
soil management also. Though HE washers
use about 1/3 of the water of a
top loader, the concentration of soil in the
load is much higher due to the larger
loads. To handle the higher amount of
soil, many HE detergents are specially
formulated with soil suspending ingredients
to prevent soil from re-depositing
onto clothes. Only use detergent with HE marked on it.
Use the correct amount.
The technical data sheet along with that
pesky clogged pump is located behind the
toe kick panel; remove the screws under the
bottom front edge of the washer. Tip the appliance
back to get to them screws. With the screws
removed, the panel will comes down and off.

4 mo. old. leaking water and suds all over floor. using he detergent.


If its leaking by that amount there will almost certainly be a pipe that has pulled loose somewhere at the soap box due to the soap suds leaking over the floor. To see the workings, remove the top lid and start a cycle and observe. Go from there.

Massive amount of suds coming out under the door.


Someone put the wrong detergent in this machine causing the suds problem. Manually fill the machine with COLD water. Set it to pump out. Refill with COLD water and pump out again. You may have to do this several times to clear the suds lock condition.
Use only COLD water as HOT water will cause more suds.
