Hello there"
Sud SUDS LOCK (Overdose of Detergent detected during the Wash Cycle)
The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

  • If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
  • Check Drain Pump
  • Check Pressure Switch
  • Check CCU

I had the same issue with a brand new wash. The issue I found was the installers installed the drain line too low. The drain line needs to be a minimum of 39" above the floor. Hope this helps -- Kent

    Tip

    F21 Error Code on Whirlpool Duet & Kenmore Elite Front Loader Washers


    This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADERS displaying the “F21” error code.

    “F21” is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

    1. First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
    2. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
    3. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
    4. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
    To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

    If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

    ERROR CODE F09


    A typical HE3 Kenmore Elite washer the F09 code indicates and overflow has been sensed. This can be because of suds or a failure of the pump or pressure switch.

    Suds is a common problem with the newer 2X-3X super concentrated detergents.

    A pump that is partially blocked might cause this error

    Kenmore elite hE3 washer has f32 code flashing. Door is locked and would not open.


    F/32 error code; this indicates a pressure switch failure. The Sud error code indicates a suds lock condition. Be sure that you are using HE laundry detergent & the drain hose is not too low.

    How do you get to the drain filter on a kenmore elite he3 washer to clean it?


    The following link explains how to access the drain pump on a Kenmore Elite HE3 front loader to clean the drain pump:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

    If you are experiencing drainage issues and cleaning the pump does not work, you may have to replace the drain pump. You will usually experience an "F2", "SUD" or "F21" error code (depending on model number) for a drain blockage problem. Since this error code occurs when the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump motor or impeller becomes damaged, the pump will not pump at the required volume and the error code will continue to occur. Replacement pumps can be purchased on line at:

    searspartsdirect.com
    pcappliancerepair.com
    appliancepartspros.com
    repairclinic.com

    Prices vary between these sites, so shop all of them for the best deal.

    NOTE: Make sure you also check the drain hose and the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the drain pump. Small articles of clothing can commonly get lodged in this area.

    If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
