"SUD" is a Suds Detect error code. The washer will not complete any cycle as long as the error code is present. The following link explains the error and some potential causes:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608687-sud_error

The number one cause of the error comes from using too much, or the wrong type, of detergent. You are required to use High Efficiency (HE) detergent with these washers because the concentration is formulated for HE washers that use small amounts of water. Using the wrong type of detergent can also void any manufacturer warranty you may have.

NOTE: HE detergent does not have a lot of suds, which often confuses consumers into thinking they aren't using enough detergent. With HE washers little to no suds is NORMAL and preferred.

If you use too much detergent, using the RINSE/SPIN option is recommended to flush the tub, drain pump and lines. IMPORTANT: It can sometimes take SEVERAL cycles to clear. Also, leaving the door open for a while can allow air into a suds filled drum to get rid of some of the bubbles.

Secondary causes can come from something restricting the drainage system. Most notably, something lodged in the drain pump and/or drain hose(s). I've included a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump reservior if required.

Each one of these washers come with a technical data sheet inside.

To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it from time to time to troubleshoot your washer.

Read through the information provided and let me know if you have any further questions. I hope this can help you.

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.
