Cabrio Washer Error SD

Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Error SD

The Cabrio Washer Error SD

 happens when the main control board detects too much drag on the basket during the spin cycle. Most of the time this is caused by using too much detergent and there are a lot of suds built up between the inner and outer tub. The washer will try to fix this itself by extending the rinse time to clear the suds,  if it is able to clear them and no more drag is detected on the tub the Cabrio Washer Error SD code will clear from the display. If the error persists then the steps to take to try and remedy this error are listed below.

  1. Often times this error can be fixed simply by cleaning out the pump trap and making sure the washer is able to drain properly, if it does not drain fast enough the suds will remain longer in the tub and cause this error.
  2. If the pump and drain hoses are good and its draining properly,  then open the washer lid/door and pour some vinegar in the tub and run a cycle with the washer empty and no detergent. That should clean and clear the washer of any remaining suds. If you are using liquid detergent just use one tablespoon you do not need anymore than that regardless of what the product directions tell you.
  3. Replace the drain pump. The drain pump may be running but the impeller could be damaged not allowing the washer to drain properly.

If none of the above helps then most likely this problem is being caused by friction on the drive system. See our page on the Cabrio OL error linked below.
