Have same problem. Service tech said LF code is caused by low water pressure coming into machine. Tech verified water flow looked fine, getting new controller installed tomorrow.

Well, you're not gonna like this, but here's the deal.
Remove the three screws on the rear of the control panel and lift it up. Disconnect the rubber hose on the right side of the gray control module and blow through it to make sure it is clear and not kinked. If this check is fine then your control module needs replaced.
Note that Maytag knows this is a fairly common problem. My washer failed 9 months out of warranty with this problem.
The only good news is that it is an easy, though expensive, replacement.

5d is a definitely a the code for a plugged discharge. We removed the lower access panel and discovered a virtual treasure: $12.50 in quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies, a pen, a pencil, collar stays, 10 bobby-pins, 3 barrettes, a elastic headband, a draw string, a box cutter, 3 washers, 3 broken zipper parts, a elastic waist band. Amazing it took all to trigger a 5d error code. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: error code Sd (or 5d)
It means Suds Lock(Overdose of Detergent Detected During The Wash Cycle).If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases,the washer will fill 4 litres of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling,the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.
If too much detergent was used:
– Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
– Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump,pressure switch and Central Control Unit(CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test.

This is just a factory setting that reminds you to clean the washer to avoid that musty smell. You can buy tablets called Affresh or other similar cleaners for washing machines. They sell these items at Target, Walmart, Lowes and Home Depot. You can also substitue 1 Cup of Bleach in the washer. Then once you add whatever solution you have decided to clean it with you simply select the wash cycle on the machine called "Clean Washer with Affresh" Once you have done this the light should go out. You can also reset this indicator light by pushing the button next to the light that says Reset clean washer reminder. Hope this helps!! :)
