SD is the code for suds detect. You may have used too much detergent, or you may not have used HE laundry detergent.

SOURCE: error code Sd (or 5d)

It means Suds Lock(Overdose of Detergent Detected During The Wash Cycle).If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases,the washer will fill 4 litres of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling,the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.

If too much detergent was used:
– Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
– Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump,pressure switch and Central Control Unit(CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test.

Thanks for using FixYa. Error 5d means too much detergent was used. Try the following procedure---

Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.

This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. If still the problem persists, then please check the following things--



1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.



Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.



Thanks

SOURCE: troubleshooting code 5d or "Sd"

SD would be too much suds or the pump is clogged and can't remove the water fast enough.

Per Sears Repair Site code 5d is actually SD. Indicating suds detection. It displays when a drag is detected by basket of a suds lock condition. This is generally caused by using too much laundry detergent or the wrong type.

Error code 5d


Ok the Sd error code (not 5D) indicates that the unit has detected too much suds and has shut down until the error is cleared.

Try running a load with no soap and that should clear the problem.

If that does not solve the problem, then you will need the service manual to perform further diagnostics to the unit.

Here is a link to the manual.

My washer is displaying a 5d code on panel, what does this mean?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Error code 5d/Sd means suds have been detected. To solve this problem you have to take the bottom front panel apart and then clean the drain filter pump assembly completely, make sure the washer is unplugged before working on it. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Error code 5D


5D is actually SD which is suds detection. This could be because you are using non HD detergent.

OR

It happened to me when the discharge hose backed up because the sink into which it was discharging got backed up. It looks like the discharge hose not flowing properly is the most common cause of this error code.;

What does F- indicate?


The SD code, is a sudsing code. If you are using the appropriate amount of soap and HE soap, it could be a communication error with the sensor and the CCU (the main control board). If you take off the panel on the bottom of the front (3 screws on the bottom hold it on). Once you get in, there is a plastic pouch on the right hand side there is a tech sheet that will have a list of all the error codes, and what to check.

Good luck

Kenmore HE2 front load error 5d


It is possible that instead of 5d that you have a SD. The SD error is usually form an excess of suds in the washer. In most cases you can run the machine through a couple rinse cycles and clear that right up. If that does not work then you will need to clean out the drain and your pump filter. The filer is located behind the bottom panel and you just unscrew it from the pump. If infact you had a 5D error then I am sorry for misinforming you, I have just never heard of a 5 D and I have been services them for years. I really hope this helped you, good luck.

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