Hi,
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.

  • 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
Thank You

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.

Washer stops running and displays code SUD. The water doesn't drain until It's put on the rinse/spin cycle.


Make sure you are using HE (High Efficiency)detergent. The codes could mean your washer is telling you it has used a built in "SUD" routine during final rinse

What does it mean when the washer flases F


An error code reading "F" indicates an electrical problem and "SUD" means that the "suds routine" to eliminate excess sudsing has been activated. The washer should restart once extra suds have been removed. Water and drainage problems usually mean you should check the hoses for any kinks or obstructions, according to the owner's manual.

An "F" code may require you to drain and start a spin cycle to drain the washer of excessive water.
Hope this helps.

What does SUD mean?


SUD means a detection of suds in the machine. These machines are very sensitive to over sudsing. Try adding just plain water or bleach to break down the suds level. They say to use 1/4 of the detergent you would use in an older machine.

If you see "Sud" or "Sd" with the Rinse status light on, the washer is in the process of removing suds. Let the cycle finish

If you see "Sud" or "Sd" and the Cycle Complete light is on, the washer detected too many suds during the cycle and your load may not be fully rinsed or water may not be fully removed. You may want to select a Rinse/Spin cycle for further rinsing.

My Kenmore Elite Front load washing machine HE4 has started giving a code SuD - What does this mean?


SuD = SUDS referes to the Pump strainer. It needs to be accessed by taking off the front to get to it and be cleaned
There are 3 screws on the bottom panel you need to remove. Take off panel. Facing you is the pump strainer. Big white piece of plastic. It is the only thing you can unscrew by hand.You may be surprised as to what you find in there. Good hunting.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA
