Hi


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.



Thanks

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.

SOURCE: the washer showed a code 5d what does this mean

Hi,

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!!

I have showing 5d does not spin what does it mean


This code indicates that excessive detergent suds occurred during the cycle. The washer will not be able to spin out water with the excess suds. When "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the washer pauses the wash action and adds water for additional rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. This process is necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.
Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

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.

My kenmore washer is stopping constantly and has error codes like 5d, rL, F21 and some other codes. We checked everything the manual says to and it all seems fine. What is the problem?


That 5d is a clue. Too much detergent, the wrong detergent, or detergent in wrong dispenser can cause the 5d which is suds overdose. The F-21 is from banging on the touchpad in frustration!
Keypad error! Take the base panel off and find the tech sheet behind it. The tech sheet will give error codes and what to try. I have an HE washer service manual and some repair photos HERE

My whirlpool duet sport washer often finishes it's cycle with the symbol Sd or 5d, I'm not sure which one. Any idea what that means?


Slow drain. Check your drain hose for kinks and make sure it's not partially plugged. If it is going into a pipe make sure it isn't pushed too far into it.
