Washing machine error SD

I recently purchased an Oasis He washing machine and since day one an SD error has appeared. I've tried several more loads, not using any soap and it appears every time. I do have a water softener. Also, it's not spinning out the clothes properly. A repairman has been out, and I'm patiently waiting on another new one. My question is, has anyone else experienced this problem?

    Thank you for the response. It will be another week before my (new) replacement is here, but I will let you know.

    Hey Catriver,
    Good news! I have my new washing machine and know how it is supposed to perform. It's really a wonderful machine, now that I have one that functions properly. Best of all, since I have a water softner, I use 1 Tablespoon of HE Soap. I really think you diagnosed the problem. Thanks for your website.

Cammie, it's probably an isolated problem. If you are not oversudzing then the problem would be in the spin basket binding or not able to nest when the spin is called for. This is not a common problem. It's a good deal that you are having it replaced. Usually I see a lot of these with the famous F51 code, meaning that the motor sensor is sending a false signal to the board. Let us know if your new one has the same back.

While in the middle of wash load, an error light appears. Sd, what does this mean? kenmore top load washer model 8567165

A code of "SD" indicates the washer has entered its "Suds Routine." That happens when an excessive amount of suds is detected in your washer, and the machine changes operation to remove the suds for proper rinsing of your load. The code will clear itself once the "Suds Routine" has finished.

If it keeps doing this each load, try lightening up on the detergent.

Sd error on my top load kenmore oasis

Unplug the washer for 6-8 hours. We were told to try this by a local repair man before bringing the washer in and it worked for us. He said it would reset the washer.

Error code LD

I had this problem also. Ld means that it is taking too long for the tub to drain, usually something is clogged. Try taking a shop vac and sucking out the drain hose that goes into the wall drain. This should at least get you where the tub will finish the cycle you have going. I tried this and it worked for about 2 loads then "Ld" again. Finally removed the drain pump from the washer and let it empty completely. So far this has worked.

Kenmore Elite Oasis TL washer, stubborn Sd code

Found the problem. After removing the back panel, found some garments in the bottom of the surrounding clear plastic tub. These must have been periodically blocking the outflow area and triggering the Sd error code. Fixed it by opening the top components of the washer so I could see down into the surrounding tub from above. Fished out the garments with clothes hangar. Put everything back together and have done six loads with zero problems.
