Let’s check out some of the common problems and their possible solutions.


The lock has been activated. Touch the button that activates the lock or (on older models) verify the button by reading the owner’s manual to determine which button activates the lock. Several models, some of which you must press and hold, have buttons that you have to press and hold.


There is no detergent cartridge in the dispenser. As long as you are using single-load doses of detergent, you should ignore this message. Make sure that the dispenser cartridge is inserted correctly, and that the dispenser drawer is shut completely.


It was paused or cancelled. It is possible that the washer takes 20-30 minutes to stop spinning and draining, and it is possible that this error code is displayed during that time.

If you want to get rid of the code, press the pause or cancel button twice, and press the power button once. If the code is still displayed, unplug the washer from your circuit, or disconnect the power to the washer for one minute.

rL or F34

There were tems that were spotted in the washer during the clean washer cycle.

Take items out of the drum and restart the wash cycle.

Sud or Sd

You can see that too many suds are in the washing machine. When it is impossible to rinse out the excess suds, the washer will not be able to spin out any of the water. When there is a sud or sd displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time, in order to remove the excess suds. During that time, the washer pauses the tumbling and adds water to the tank in order to rinse it more. When the pause is reached, the bubbles in the suds in the liquid can break. So the pause and rinsing are necessary and may occur several times in order to get rid of the suds.

Make sure to use a detergent that is high efficiency. If you use no splash or easy pour liquid chlorine bleach, there could be a risk that you will have too many suds. It is possible that this type of liquid chlorine bleach contains a thickening agent, which may cause excessive suds in washers. If that is the case, then run the washer with the bleach.
