Sounds as if the filter is clogged and or the pump or the hoses to the pump,including the drain line.

Check the filter first then the hoses mentioned above.

If this is a front load washer.

Washer doesn't spin or drain


Clean your INLET and OUTLET filters, remove the inlet valve and check flow, also check the drain pump for clogging or lint collection.

Final spin cycle I get sud error code or f2, water mostly drained but no spin. When I restart the spin cycle just starts to spin then stops, sounds like it drains some more water then makes a small...


Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is

running. • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects • If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump




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.

Code SL or 5L?


It is Code SL which means Suds Lock. Either you have too much soap suds for it to drain properly or Your drain pump is clogged and not spinning properly. Try running it through a rinse and spin cycle and if you still get a code (SL or Ld) then you will probably need to replace your drain pump.

Washer displays code F 02 which means drain problem but the drain line is clear. Also displays suds but i ran with no detergent and it still says suds. Issue seems to happen right after rinse cycle before...


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. In most cases this means you have a clog in the drain pump. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615268-f02_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail. NOTE: The "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F02" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error should go away.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

The machine has stopped and is giving the error code "sud". I may have added the laundry detergent twice although it is HE detergent. Any suggestions? Thank you. It is a Whirlpool Duet.


The problem is from to much soap. HE detergent is a lower sudsing detergent, but to much will cause this error code. You need to let the washer fill and wash for a minute, then cancel it and put it in drain/spin. Repeat this 4-5 times. This will get all the soap and residue out and back to normal.

GOES INTO SUDS THEN TO F35 CODE. WHEN THIS HAPPENS CANNOT TURN POWER OFF.


Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions and check out the pump. It's not only if the water drained, but how fast it drained. I would remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port on the pump. Look for anything clogging the pump (like the occasional stray sock,etc) An obstructions can cause a longer drain time. Check the pump impeller and make sure it has no broken or missing blades and that the impeller spins freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you can't get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is bad. Hopefully it's just a clogged line, pump, or jammed impeller. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
