The 5D is actually a SD for suds .

What type of detergent do you use in the unit? HE or non HE

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
My wife has always used either Whisk Pods HE or Tide Pods HE. She switched to Gain Liquid HE Last week! She received the SD error last night. I'm sorry fro the slow typing.

Does the unit drain at all?

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 11 months ago.

The Error code of SD

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. 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:

➔ Load is bunched or twisted around agitator.

➔ Excessive detergent usage. ➔ Basket cannot engage during drain step.

➔ Mechanical friction on drive mechanism, not allowing basket to engage.
