Question about Washing Machines
It's flashing 5ud code - what does this mean? I pressed pause and tried to restart and it won't work?
The code is actually 'Sud'...meaning excessive sudsing. Are you using HE soap, if not, start and use very little...OR the pump clean-out may have a partial blockage..to inspect clean-out...
Remove the bottom access panel. There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap) BE READY TO CATCH LOTS OF WATER. CAREFULLY AND S_L_O_W_L_Y unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris.... Hope this helps

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
Sud error is displayed when the washer is unable to drain, press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear the display. After this please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any blockages and make sure it is not clogged with foreign particles. You can also check the drain pump to verify that its working. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
