    Is there a free online service manual for the Whirlpool Duet Sport washing machine?

  • Anonymous May 08, 2009

    Sears techs were at my home today and it was exactly as stated above. There was a bobby pin lodged inside the pump. It could have been costly if not caught at this point.

F21 is a drain error code. You likely have something stuck in your pump. Remove the lower front panel. (there are 3 #20 torx screws on the bottom of it holding it on) Once you have the panel off, the white object in the front cneter is your pump. Remove the #20 torx screw out of there too to make life easier. Slide the pump forward slightly so you can raise it. Now, on the front of the pump is a handel that you will need to trun counter clockwise. So after placing something under neath to catch the water left inside the machine ( a large bowl or bucket), turn the know slowly counter clock wise. If there is too much water for your container, screw it back clockwise and go empty your container. Repeat until all of the water is out. Once that is done, unscrew it all of the way and slide if forward. You will usually find missing socks, toys, coins and all other kinds of fun objects. While you have the trap out, reach in with your finger to the hole on the right. Try and turn the wheel inside to make sure there isn't anything keeping it from turning (bobby pins, nails, screws, etc) If there is, you will need to unclamp both hoses on the back of the pump and remove any further forign objects. Now re-assemble the unit but leave the panel off. Run a quick fill and drain to make sure all of your connections are tight and you don't have any leaks. Put your panel back in and you're ready to go.

Error code 5d


Ok the Sd error code (not 5D) indicates that the unit has detected too much suds and has shut down until the error is cleared.

Try running a load with no soap and that should clear the problem.

If that does not solve the problem, then you will need the service manual to perform further diagnostics to the unit.

Here is a link to the manual.

5d error code on duet washer. What do I do?


Hello, welcome to fixya.

Based on your post I understand you have a "SD" error problem (looks like a 5D in the digital display) with a Whirlpool Duet washer, the error means an excessive drain time or excessive suds was detected as you may or may not already know.

If you follow the link to my solution to this error designed specifically for "do-it-yourselfers" you should be fixed up in no time. (It's much quicker for me than pasting or retyping the complete solution several hundred times, that's how common this is)

Thank you for visiting fixya for your washer inquiry. Please take a moment to rate my assistance both here and on my tip link and leave a brief testimony.

Regards,

Error code Sd (or 5d)


It means Suds Lock(Overdose of Detergent Detected During The Wash Cycle).If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases,the washer will fill 4 litres of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling,the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.

If too much detergent was used:
– Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
– Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump,pressure switch and Central Control Unit(CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test.

We keep getting the 5d error code. what could


The 5d (or Sd) error code indicate that the control detected a suds lock or overdose of detergent during the drain or spin phases of the cycle. This is usually caused by overuse of detergent. It can also be caused by using regular detergent instead of HE (High Efficiency) detergent. After the excessive suds dissipate, you can normally clear the fault code and then run a drain/spin to finish the load of laundry. If you detect no excessive suds, this fault code could be caused by a clogged drain system or a failed water level pressure switch. hope this helps....

My whirlpool duet washer indicates "5d"...


take bottom panel off should be 3 to 4 screws and will come off then you will see your drain pump in the middle in the center with a plastick cap you can take off. before you take off get plenty of towels ready because water will come out try leaning unit back until you dont have to hold it then take cap off and clear any debree you find and put cap back on and try running again offen to much debree can damage pump and might need to be replaced!

Whirlpool duet sport


5d is: suds lock (overdose of detergent dectected during the wash cycle).

Chances are you just put too much detergent in, or maybe the wrong detergent - make sure you're using the HE detergent.

These codes and more details are printed on the service technician diagnostic manual that is affixed to the inside of the washer's front panel.

Unplug your washer, and unscrew the three 1/4" socket screws at the bottom of the washer. The manual should be taped to the back of the panel, and the code and some recommended procedures will be right inside.
