SOURCE: What does '5ud' or Sud

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.

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.

I'm getting an 5ud and don't know what that means?


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.SUD means suds as in soap suds. Are you using too much soap? Are you using high efficiency detergent? If your using the correct detergent and not using too much,Only fill to bottom line on cap and still getting sud error then you may have a failed pressure switch.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

The washer screen says 5ud. wat does that mean?


"SUD" means just that - suds. It may mean too much detergent, or drain pump clogged, or water level switch is faulty. Check drain line and drain pump first.

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.
