Question about Maytag MAH6700AWW Neptune Front-Load Washer
I searched for a solution to an error code coming up on my Amana front load washer and got this site. Can anyone give a suggestion on how to get this error fixed. The washer still runs but seems to pause more and take longer to complete a load of clothes. Sometimes they spin out and sometimes they are wetter.
5d means you're using too much detergent.

SH: Open thermistor. Unplug appliance and let rest for 15-30 minutes, then plug back in. If code continues, unplug appliance and call for service.
bP: Pressure switch error sensed. Washer will not operate when this error is displayed. Check for pinches or kinks in the water inlet hoses and straighten if necessary. Check the water inlet hoses filter screens and clean if needed. Verify that the water supply is turned on. Unplug washer and let rest for 15-30 minutes, then plug back in. If code continues, call for service.

Tips for a great answer:
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.

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.
