The troubleshooting page in the owner's manual says: 5d "Sd" Suds Detected - Did you use regular detergent? Regular or hand-washing detergents are not recommended for this washer. Use only High Efficiency (HE) detergent. Did you add too much detergent? Always measure detergent. Follow detergent manufacturer's directions. If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds reduction correction routine at the end of the wash cycle.The susds reduction routine removes extra suds and asures proper rinsing of your garments. If te code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your desired cycle using cold water. Press start. Do not add detergent.

SOURCE: 5d code

5d is suds warning. The motor is being overworked from too much suds caused by improper measurements or detergent or both.
Cabrio service manual is on my service manual page

Run your washer without detergent a few times. Remember this washer uses less water than a normal washer it has 2 pumps. one recirculates a small amount of water over them clothes. You go adding in a regular amount of clothes and that washer fancy electronics gonna have a cow.

5d fault what does it mean?


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.

I have showing 5d does not spin what does it mean


This code indicates that excessive detergent suds occurred during the cycle. The washer will not be able to spin out water with the excess suds. When "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the washer pauses the wash action and adds water for additional rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. This process is necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.
Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

Cabrio washer 5d error code


chances are the 5d error code you see is actually sd. it is supposed to signal excessive suds in the water but it seems to show at other times as well. but regardless of the code and depending on you mechanical abilities, remove the center cap on top of the agitator, remove the bolt and remove the agitator. some force may be needed to get the agitator off the shaft, keep equal pressure 180 degrees apart and work around the base lifting the agitator, gently rock the agitator as you lift. when it comes off take the screws from the gear hub assy out, probably six screws. when the cap is lifted off you should find a small gear, pull it off the shaft, clean and look at the teeth inside. if worn, get replacement part. put back together and run a rinse and spin cycle or similar to see if it spins . hopefully it will solve your problem.

5d keeps popping up on my washer & the clothes are soaked, its not spinning the water out.


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.

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.
