If the washer no longer drains, and you have cleaned the drain pump and lines, it sounds like its time for a new drain pump. Typically, the pump impeller or motor wears out on these pumps causing the symptom(s) you describe. You can replace a pump yourself easily, by following these steps:

A replacement can be found at searspartsdirect.com for about $70. Just type in your model number and locate item number 10 under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading on the next page. The part number is 8181684. They do not carry the motor as a separate part. You have to purchase the entire assembly. I hope this helps you. If you require addtional assistance, please let me know.

Code nd


Don't know if this is your problem but sometimes ours will appear to drain, but there is still a lot of suds that remains and trips the nd (no drain) indicator/lockout. We had to pour water in from a bucket to beat down the suds, then repeat several times to get all the suds out. First time I took off the back of the washer, disconnected the pump, then let the suds out. To much work.

Fiirst started with a buzzing noise, then next load wouldn't spin proper, then not at all, unplugged washer to reset, tried a small load and it won't run water now,after running 10 to 15 minut


Take the power plug off the wall. Be prepared for a lot of water before attempting the following. It doesn't spin because the unit is not draining water. It will not spin with water in it - must drain first. Check drain hose for kink,check exit pipe for blockage. Remove the front access panel, bottom front; if you find a pipe there with a cap -this is for draining water. Could be your "coin trap assembly" is blocked, therefore not allowing all the water to pump out. Remove the clamp that connects the trap assembly to the pump and clean it out.
If helped, pl say so.

I have a whirlpool duet washer (2008). The SUD light came on and i have never seen this before. what is wrong?


Are you using a good brand of HE detergent? Is the water draining. If draining. Start the washer. Empty and no detergent. After a few minutes, are suds in the washer? If so cancel and drain. Do again. If so cancel and drain. Add 1/4 cup of cooking oil. Start unit. Let oil rid unit of built up soap. Detergent (overuse) can build up in unit and on clothes. If this does not help you. Give more information,( noises, wet clothes) and I will try to solve your problem.

I have a whirlpool duet 2 1/2 years old I t has started to make a loud buzzing hum sound (that sounds like old top loader mixing valve malfunction?) and has error code 5d what is this ?


Actually, your error code is "Sd" and indicates that the washer thinks that there are too many suds in the basket / drum.

Your buzzing sound is also likely to be the water inlet valves, common to top loaders as well, as the washer is adding additional water to rinse excessive suds out. Check your supply hoses for kinks, connections for scale buildup inside, as well as the screens on the inlet ports of the washer itself.


A kinked or restricted drain hose can also throw an Sd error code as well.

Flashing F2


“F02” (Drain Problem)
Select PAUSE/CANCEL 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?

After running this check list, plug back up and try a complete cycle using cold water and no detergent. Sudding can mimic a drainage issue as well. make sure you are using the correct HE detergent to prevent over sudding.

Suds Message and washer stops cycle with with F02 code and beeps


sounds as if you may have a problem wiht oyour drain pump"the little black thing onthe side of the drain screw" something might have gotten into it and damaged it causing the noise and now not pumping out effiently. as far aas "suds" this could berelated to your problem , for if soapy water not being drained youlll getthis condition, but i would check your detergent . You NEED to use an HE detergent(HE high efficency spefically designed for front l;oading machines)

Buzzing - will not spin or drain water


This noise is probably the pump trying to start but will most likely be obstructed.Drain the machine manually by lowering the drain hose into a bucket or bowl and then remove blockage.

Will not do anything


You need to drain the machine manually. Drop the drain hose to a level that is lower than the drain pump and the water will syphon out. Once all the water is out you can open the door. Remove the washing and then close the door and start a rinse cycle. While the machine is taking water, open the dispenser and pour half a cup of milk in with the water. This will neutralise the suds. Once all the suds are gone the washer will be ok.

Suds Suds Suds


The SUDS fault indicator is caused by using too much detergent, or the wrong type of detergent. The Kenmore Elite front loaders were designed to use HE type detergent only. When the washers first came out, manufacturers originally made the claim that you could use regular detergent if you used less of it. The manufacturers later retracted that claim because there were a lot of problems with over-sudsing. If you are not using HE detergent, you need to be. In the mean time run your machine with no load with hot water to clear the drum and drain lines of any soap residue. You may have to do this a couple of times to clear the problem. I hope this helps.
