The troubleshooting page in the owner's manual says: 5d "Sd" Suds Detected - Did you use regular detergent? Regular or hand-washing detergents are not recommended for this washer. Use only High Efficiency (HE) detergent. Did you add too much detergent? Always measure detergent. Follow detergent manufacturer's directions. If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds reduction correction routine at the end of the wash cycle.The susds reduction routine removes extra suds and asures proper rinsing of your garments. If te code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your desired cycle using cold water. Press start. Do not add detergent.

SOURCE: when my cabrio washer gets

This code is not 5d it is sd, the "s" just looks like a five. Sd is displayed when the machine/motor control, by analyzing drag on the basket, detects a soap suds-lock condition, and is steady on while the control then runs a mini-clean out cycle. If the clean out cycle is unable to correct the over-sudsing problem, the cycle ends and Sd flashes in the display. This may signify:
Excessive detergent usage.
Basket cannot engage during drain step.
Mechanical friction on drive mechanism, not allowing basket to engage.

Cabrio washer 5d error code

chances are the 5d error code you see is actually sd. it is supposed to signal excessive suds in the water but it seems to show at other times as well. but regardless of the code and depending on you mechanical abilities, remove the center cap on top of the agitator, remove the bolt and remove the agitator. some force may be needed to get the agitator off the shaft, keep equal pressure 180 degrees apart and work around the base lifting the agitator, gently rock the agitator as you lift. when it comes off take the screws from the gear hub assy out, probably six screws. when the cap is lifted off you should find a small gear, pull it off the shaft, clean and look at the teeth inside. if worn, get replacement part. put back together and run a rinse and spin cycle or similar to see if it spins . hopefully it will solve your problem.

Y whirlpool cabrio washer is showing code 5D how do I fix

SD is Sud lock, too much soap, or clogged drain pump. Also check the pressure tube, make sure no gunk is in it. If none of that works, then replace the main control board.

5d code

5d is suds warning. The motor is being overworked from too much suds caused by improper measurements or detergent or both.
Cabrio service manual is on my service manual page

Run your washer without detergent a few times. Remember this washer uses less water than a normal washer it has 2 pumps. one recirculates a small amount of water over them clothes. You go adding in a regular amount of clothes and that washer fancy electronics gonna have a cow.

I have a WTW6400SW2. Always get 5d code if we use high spin speed or do large load. Also seems to take forever for tub to drain. Related problems? In the past have epoxied exterior of drain pump due to...

Hi

Error code SD/5d means LONG DRAIN. This error appears when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes and the water valves turn off. After 4 minutes the "Sd" error will be displayed, and then 4 minutes later the F21 error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display. Please Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. If the drain hose if fine then unplug the washer and check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects. To access the drain pump and filter remove the front kick panel and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the washer, drain pump would be located there. If you are not able to access it, then replace the back panel as well. Plug in washer or reconnect power. If the issue is still not resolved then you would need to replace the drain pump. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I have a whirlpool- cabrio and 5D or SD error code appears. What is the problem and how do you fix it.?

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.

What dos 5d means before the spin. When the time

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error 5d means too much detergent was used. Try the following procedure---

Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.

This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. If still the problem persists, then please check the following things--



1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle and replace the part that has gone bad.



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



Thanks

Cabrio won't spin

its SD not 5D
Sd is displayed when the machine/motor control, by analyzing drag on the basket, detects a suds-lock condition, and is steady on while the control then runs a mini-clean out cycle.
