Question about Maytag Bravos MTW6600T Top Load Washer
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 accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Anything that creates drag on the basket can trigger a 5d (Sd) error. I had codes f51 and Sd. I found a shirt wedged between the tub and the basket. The plastic tub is clear. Take of the sheet metal panel off of the washer's back. It is held on by 8 screws. You can see if clothing is inside the tub.
You can find instructions for pulling the basket in other posts.

5D actually means suds, make sure you aren't using normal detergant as these units require 'HE or High Efficiency' detergant that doesn't suds much. Try runing a load with not clothes and just put in a cup of white vinegar to remove all the suds in the machine and see if goes through spin with no suds in. If not and you still get an error you will need to replace the pressure switch because it thinks there is water or suds in the machine it's not removing.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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.
