    My washer flashes F and H.  What does that mean

  • rockett61 Oct 20, 2008

    I've had the SUDS message--it means that the soap didn't rinse out completely. Sometimes if it does it mid-cycle, it will correct the problem itself. If it's at the end of the cycle, I usually just run a rinse cycle again. Recently I've been getting the F and H on the display--seems to be only in the rinse cycle. Any idea what that means?

My maytag 2000 series has a code E1 and SD


These codes indicate you have used to much detergent and there are excessive soap suds in the machine, use an approved detergent and use the right amount. Unplug the washer from the wall for 5 minutes after the suds are drained out. if codes return call for service.

F21 and SUDS code on Kenmore Elite 5t Steam Washer. It was not the drain line. I replaced the pump and still getting error codes


Are you using the "HE" detergent? Also, don't use to much as it will cause the SUDS error.

Error message is 5Ud5


CODE SYMBOL = 5Ud5
MEANING = Too many suds are detected during the washing session.
The unit is put on hold until the suds are reduced. Then, the unit will go back to the operation.
When it finishes washing, End and SUdS codes will blink in turn
SOLUTION = To prevent it, cut down on detergents.

F-21 code several times. We clean the pump. Start again the rinse/drain and spin cicle, and now present sd code and later f-21 code. What we need to do.


I have the manual for this machine. Under "Code 21" it says the following:
"F21" (Drain Problem) Select STOP twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer or disconnect power. Check the following: Is the drain hose kinked? Is the drain hose frozen? Is the drain hose clogged? Is the drain hose more than 96" (2.4 m) above the floor? Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.
For "SUDS" code, the following:
"SUD" (Suds Routine) When excessive suds are detected, a suds routine automatically starts. This routine removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. "SUD" is displayed during rinsing to inform you that Suds Routine was activated. Use only HE (High Efficiency) detergents.
Here is some more information that may help you as well:
"F" Codes other than F20, F21 and F22 Select STOP twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN & SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.
I hope this is of some help to you, Please rate and comment, Thank You

Hi,

Remove the lower front panel and unscrew the cap from the pump and drain the water and clean the filter and then run it a few times with no soap at all an dit should clear the system ,,, have some towels handy when you remove the filter.

If the problem remains unsolved, then you need to replace the pressure switch.

Explanation

Sud" SUDS LOCK (Overdose of Detergent detected during the Wash Cycle)
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.

All possible reasons

  • If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
  • Check Drain Pump
  • Check Pressure Switch
  • Check CCU
As i mentioned, on most occasions, this is due to faulty pressure switch.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do you get the 'suds' to stop appearing on the screen. have tried rinsing but it wont let me.


SUDS = suds detected during wash cycle.
Do you see suds visible in the drum?

Do you have any other failure codes appearing?
Unplug unit and plug it back in attempt to run the rinse cycle. If it does not work it could be a clogged filter.
Remove lower front panel place a pan under the white filter. located near the pump. Remove the unit and clear any debris.

Calypso displaying SL or5L messages, did you get it fixed?


I see at least 2 of these a week. 9 out of 10 times, it's the pump. If the u-joint is bad, it will put strain on the motor causing it to think it's overloaded as well.

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
