Error Code Error Possible Solution
dET Detergent cartridge not detected in the dispenser.

This is on select models. If you are using single-load doses of detergent, ignore this message.

Ensure the dispenser cartridge is inserted correctly and the dispenser drawer is shut completely.

Int The cycle was paused or canceled.

 The washer may take 20 to 30 minutes to stop spinning and drain, and will display this error code during that time.

To remove the code, press pause or cancel button twice and the power button once. If the code is still displayed, unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.

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.

This is on select models. Verify detergent drawer or detergent cartridge is not clogged with detergent. Find more information on How do I clean my washer dispensers?

F9 E1 Indicates that drain times are longer than expected, typically over eight (8) minutes.

Make sure the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Use the U-shaped drain hose form on the drain hose. The standpipe (drainpipe) height requirements are 96" (244 cm) maximum and 39" (99 cm) minimum. Find more information on How to Install the Drain Hose.

Excessive suds may also cause delays in draining. Make sure you are using HE detergent.
