Amana Washer Error Codes

Amana Washer Error Code Sud or Sd

If you’ve encountered the Amana Washer Error Code Sud or Sd, don’t worry – we’re here to guide you through the details and offer solutions to get your washing machine back in optimal working condition.

Error Description:

The Sud or Sd error code indicates that there are excessive suds in your washing machine. When this occurs, the washer is unable to efficiently spin out water with the excess suds, prompting the appliance to take corrective measures.

Automatic Rinse Cycle:

Upon detecting high suds levels, the washer initiates an automatic rinse cycle to address the issue. This involves extending the rinse time, during which the tumbling pauses, and additional water is added for thorough rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. It’s important to note that this pause and rinsing sequence may occur multiple times until the excess suds are eliminated.

Possible Causes:

  1. Incorrect Detergent Type: Ensure that you are using HE or High Efficiency detergent. Traditional or non-HE detergents may produce excess suds, triggering the Sud or Sd error.
  2. Thickening Agents in Bleach: The use of “no splash” or “easy pour” liquid chlorine bleach, containing thickening agents, can contribute to excessive suds. In such cases, running the washer with regular liquid bleach products is recommended.
  3. Restricted Drain Hose or Standpipe: The Sud or Sd code may also result from a restricted or kinked drain hose. Inspect the drain hose for any obstructions, kinks, or clogs. Additionally, check the standpipe (drainpipe) for proper functionality.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Switch to HE Detergent: If you’re not already using High Efficiency detergent, make the switch to reduce suds formation.
  2. Avoid Thickened Bleach Products: Opt for regular liquid bleach without thickening agents to prevent excessive suds.
  3. Check Drain Hose and Standpipe: Ensure the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Examine the standpipe for proper drainage.
