Machine is not spinning to get excess water out. code 5ud showing on screen


5UD is actually 'SUDS', it means the pump has noticed there is too much soap and is having difficulty pumping out. Are you using HE detergent?

If you leave the machine for an hour and then set it to Rinse and Spin, it should clear.

I have a Kenmore Elite Smartwash QuitPak9 washer. I keep getting error messages 02F and Sud or 5ud . Seems washer will not drain , Can get it to drain sometime , no clog


its a suds sensor error. meaning tom much or the wrong detergent was used and it has clogged the wash cycle, you will have to try to run rinse cycles over and over to u clean it out if u can, some machines have an auto clean cycle for this problem, it is difficult to deal with as I have the same issue with one of mine and still not running right

What does 5ud mean 10 minutes from finishing 5 Ud displayed can't open door?


The SUD (not 5UD) code is displayed when excess foam is detected (possibly because excessive detergent is being used). If your machine does not cure itself, you may have to run an "Eco drum clean" cycle (if your machine has it) or a 90 degree cotton cycle with no detergent and no load.

What does 5ud mean on a elite he3


I think the 5UD is SUD. It means excessive sudsing has been detected, and a suds routine has been started to reduce excessive suds. This routine will add time to the original cycle. I have had this on my display a couple of times when I guess I put too much HE soap in the machine.

What does '5ud' or Sud displayed on the light console mean?


Hi,

It is meant to be SUD rather than 5UD and it stands for 'suds'- too much sudding. Machines normally go into a mode to flush the suds out at that point. As a suggestion it could be you are using too many tablets/too much soap powder.

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.

Have error code 5Ud can you explain what this is as manual does not have code listed?


It is actually "SUd" probably didn't use enough softner/too much detergent. i clear it by running "quick wash" with no addidtives, gives me two rinse cycles in 35 minutes, done.

Sears kenmore washer 110.42822200 error code sud


SUD- Suds lock (Overdose of detergent detected during the wash cycle, or the actual brand is a non HE type)

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.

Possible Causes / Procedure


• If too much detergent was used:

A. Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
B. Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.

This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. If the problem persist, follow this check list below.

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.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

Error codes


I own a HE3 kenmore elite for 4 years now and the troubleshooting codes are: SUD When excessive suds are detected, a suds routine automatically starts. This causes the cycle to go longer to remove the excess suds. Reduce detergent amounts or use HE detergent. The F02 error I had with mine and it is a drain problem. Book says check the hose for kinks, clogged or is it more than 96 inches above the floor. On mine it was the fan pump on the forward motor that drains the washer. It was worn and not pushing out the water fast enough. You will hear a high pitched whine at the front bottom of the washer if this is bad. To reset the washer from the F02 error, select pause/cancel twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer or dissconnect power. good luck
