rL or F34 Items were detected in the washer during the Clean Washer cycle. Remove items from the drum and restart the Clean Washer cycle.
Sud or Sd There are too many suds in the washing machine. The washer will not be able to spin out water with the excess suds. When “Sud” or “Sd” is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the washer pauses the tumbling and adds water for additional rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. This pause and rinsing are necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.

Make sure you are using HE or High Efficiency detergent. Find more information on HE Detergent use in your Washer.

If you used “no splash” or “easy pour” liquid chlorine bleach, you could also have too many suds. This type of liquid chlorine bleach contains a thickening agent that may create excess suds in washers. If this is the case, run the washer with regular liquid bleach products.

The Sud or Sd code may also be the result of a restricted drain hose or standpipe (drainpipe). Make sure that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Find more information on How to Install the Drain Hose.
