Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
To test for bearing failure, open the door, pull back the door seal then grab the plastic outer tub with one hand and the inner basket with the other hand. If you can lift on the basket and wiggle up and down, the tub bearing is bad.
The tub bearing is contained in the rear half of the outer tub. To replace the rear half of the outer tub requires total disassembly of the machine. The top, console, door seal, front panel, rear panel drain hose, pressure hose etc. all have to be removed. Then..the entire outer tub has to be removed and split apart. The basket will need to be removed and the rear half of the tub replaced,,,It is a very time consuming job, if you are mechanically inclined, you can do it, if not, consider a professional. Cost to repair by a professional will run around $450.00. Outer tub cost is around $300.00.
If you need further assistance, let me know

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
Error code 5d/Sd means suds have been detected. To solve this
problem you have to take the bottom front panel apart and then clean the drain
filter pump assembly completely, make sure the washer is unplugged before
working on it. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
