At the end of the cycle, a foam reduction cycle will be started to rinse the foam from the clothes. Start a second wash cycle without detergent if you see the Sd error flashing and the machine has already stopped rinsing excess foam from the clothes. To avoid this error, use only HE detergent. Use the correct amount of detergent; excessive use may result in excessive foaming.
This error may also appear if you have started more than two wash cycles without lifting the lid. Close the lid. If the lid is closed, open and close it. The lid lock/switch sensor may need to be replaced if it does not detect the lid opening and closing.
Make sure that nothing is obstructing the door. The lock sensors can be cleaned by dipping a cotton swab in medical alcohol. Sometimes the sensors become covered with dust and stop detecting when the door is closed. To remove the code from the display, press STOP afterward.

Check whether you have loaded the washing machine with an excessive amount of laundry before locking. If so, remove some of the drum contents. Then check the machine to see if too much foam has formed. Wait for the foam to disappear for 30 minutes. After that, start the drain/spin cycle to drain the water. To remove the excess foam, run a wash cycle in cold water without using detergent. In future, be sure to use only the recommended dosage of HE detergent. Otherwise, the motor may be damaged, the wiring may be loose or there may be a blockage in the drive system. Call a specialist to diagnose the washing machine. Request Service
Check the drain pipe for obstructions or kinks to resolve the drain issue. If you encounter a kink or blockage, remove it. Additionally, ensure the drain pump is operating properly. It might be broken or clogged. If it’s clogged, clean it. If not, you might have to replace the drain pump. Request Service
Check if the water intake valves are open. Make sure that the water intake grates are not blocked. If there is a blockage, remove it. Also, check for kinks or damage to the inlet hoses. Replace damaged hoses and straighten kinked inlet hoses. If these methods do not help, you may have to call a specialist to troubleshoot the washing machine. Request Service
The error may have occurred due to a power supply problem. To check if the central control unit is working, disconnect the washing machine from the mains for two minutes, then activate the diagnostic mode or start a wash cycle. If this does not resolve the problem, contact a specialist as the CPU board may be broken. Request Service

Superior Appliance Service is reliable. My range was recently repaired. Wow! The technician came on time. He’s accurate and gave a fair estimate. This is a team I’ll remain with and recommend.28.06.2022
Satisfied overall. After a few days with a leaking washing machine, I booked a next-day appointment with them. A technician arrived the following day and did his best. He also performed some maintenance on my dryer and didn’t charge me for it, plus provided tips for maintaining them in excellent shape. I’d utilize them again since their charges appeared industry-standard.27.06.2022
Andrew from Superior Appliances came out within three hours of our call. The engineer was courteous and explained everything before starting. Bravo!08.06.2022

If they can repair my damaged Bosch washer, they can do anything. My washer broke for more than a month, and other firms told me to purchase a new one. I had no doubt theycould fix any appliance until they did.28.06.2022
Excellent service! On time, the professional explained everything. He spent many hours replacing my faulty washer and dryer, yet the service charge was still extremely fair. Unexpected? I’d hire Superior Appliance Service again and confidently share positive feedback about them27.06.2022
During the installation, the technician suggested that I put on shoe covers. He was extremely professional and knew what he was doing. He also advised me to throw out the first batch of ice produced by the refurbished ice maker (which I already knew, but the mention was so professional). The company communicates quickly and expertly. Everything was an A+. I’m a difficult customer, but working with Superior Appliances made it simple to keep my gas appliance in good working order.08.06.2022
A repairman told me my washing machine’s motor was dead and I shouldn’t try to fix it. Great advice was offered on buying a second. Because I’m so appreciative, I’ve suggested two friends. I’ll use them for another repair. They’re amazing!31.05.2022
After repairing the washing machine, the technician further checked his work. Yes, he remained for the whole wash cycle. He was extremely professional and quick to my first inquiry, getting as much information as possible before coming to our home to fix our new fridge. The specialist came on schedule, disguised the issue and solved it promptly.24.05.2022
