Although this information is for a different model number it should help you troubleshoot your machine as all Duet models have basically the same internal components

I have a whirlpool cabrio wont spin code comes up SD


SD is code for suds. Try running the machine empty to clear the suds. Use only HE Detergent. HE stands for high efficiency (strictly speaking it is low sudsing.) Price should be equal to non he liquids detergents.

LE LIGHT IS APPEAR


Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

My washer is saying LE, what does LE mean? It stopped washing!


Is this a new installation?
In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

How do I drain the suds from my washer mid cycle


Try canceling the cycle and let drain. If the machine is locked out and will not allow you to start a drain try unplugging the machine for 30 seconds then plug it back in. Turn the power on and push cancel/drain. This should let you take the clothes out and start the rinse/spin clean out.

This machine is designed to use HE detergent which is low sudsing if used in the right amount. If the wrong detergent or too much is used sudsing and possibly an error code of SUDS may occur.

Once you have removed all the suds I would recommend running a cleaner such as Affresh or Smelly Washer to remove any suds residue.

Suds will not spin out. What can I do?


This machine is designed to use HE detergent which is low sudsing if used in the right amount. If the wrong detergent or too much is used sudsing and possibly an error code of SUDS may occur.

You can run a rinse/spin cycle to help clear the suds, you might have to run this cycle several times until the suds are gone.

If the machine is locked out and will not allow you to start a cycle, try unplugging the machine for 30 seconds then plugging back in. Turn the power on and push cancel/drain. This should let you take the clothes out and start the rinse/spin clean out.

Once you have removed all the suds I would recommend running a cleaner such as smelly washer or Affresh through the machine to remove any hidden residue from the excess soap.

Always use HE detergent in a front loader

Clothes too wet upon cycle completion...


Try reducing the amount of low sudsing detergent you are using. This can make the load too heavy and won't spin out. Remember suds have 3 parts, air, detergent, and water. The drain pump is designed for water, so if you see suds during the wash, it will be worst on warm and hot, then there is too much detergent, or is not low sudsing. I know Bosch reccommends HE, however HE liquids normally are not low sudsing, just High Engery. Also the Permanent Press cycles are always a lower spin speed. Hope this helps
