What does it mean if the washer is not draining and has a flashing f where the time shows?


I have the manual for this machine. Under "Code 21" it says the following:
"F21" (Drain Problem) Select STOP twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer or disconnect power. Check the following: Is the drain hose kinked? Is the drain hose frozen? Is the drain hose clogged? Is the drain hose more than 96" (2.4 m) above the floor? Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.
For "SUDS" code, the following:
"SUD" (Suds Routine) When excessive suds are detected, a suds routine automatically starts. This routine removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. "SUD" is displayed during rinsing to inform you that Suds Routine was activated. Use only HE (High Efficiency) detergents.
Here is some more information that may help you as well:
"F" Codes other than F20, F21 and F22 Select STOP twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN & SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.
I hope this is of some help to you, Please rate and comment, Thank You

It flash's SUDs during the cycle.what does it mean and what can i do to stop it from doing it


The SUD message indicates the control or pressure switch senses suds in the water. Run the machine empty with hot water only to clear any soap residue out of the machine. Cut back on the amount of soap used and use only HE detergent in the machine.

My whirlpool calypso gets a co sl


“SL” is displayed if suds are detected but the unit is unable to clean it out. This may indicate a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent or excessive suds. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display then run the machine with few number of clothing and do not use detergent. This is to verify if overloading or suds are indeed causing the problem or not. The problem is a bad pump if the fault code still flashes.

Whirlpool Duet -Sud displays and washer stops


I;ve had the same problem (SUD on first fill) and found this most helpful for my WFW9600TW01 Duet washer

http://www.tellingmachine.com/post/Fixing-Sud-and-F35-errors-on-my-Whirlpool-WFW9600TW01-Washer.aspx

I duplicated his actions and it cleared up my SUD/F35 error. I think running the diagnostic test multiple times flushes the sensors/sensing lines to eliminate the problem.

Hit pause to add other clothes to the cycle, stopped running and now flashing sud and nothing happening. can't stop the machine to start over






Hi

This happens when SUDS LOCK (Overdose of Detergent detected during the Wash Cycle). The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds. You need to follow these steps:

  • If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
  • Check Drain Pump
  • Check Pressure Switch
  • Check CCU

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

What is code F35 on a whirlpool washer model wfw9600twoo


It's a general code for some electrical system problem. Ours flashes "SUD" before while the machine is on before flashing "F35" when it stops. I've tracked this done to being a problem with the pressure sensor switch in ours, and it appears to be either from obstruction from too many suds (like using the wrong detergent), or an actual sensor problem. I followed online advice to pull the tube and blow back to clear any suds out, and that cleared it for one cycle, but then the problem came back, so I'm either going to try some other things to clear before calling for a service person to replace the sensor. The part is W10156252 Switch, Analog Pressure Sensor, number 20 of the washer parts diagram.
