Washing Machine will not go through a full cyle

Picked up this washing machine. It does not make it through a full cycle. SD comes up on the digital and I have tried to use affresh on the clean cycle but it won't even make it through that. Any guidance would be great!

@dirty838 the SD error can also be tripped by issues with your drain pump. Since you just moved the washer etc. it is conceivable that this caused some disruption with the regular flow of water and drain.Drain pumps cannot drain suds out of the washer. Check the drain hose and make sure the hose is not plugged or kinked. Press pause/cancel twice to clear the display. I would definitely take a look at that and run the diagnostics mode for the washer as well Maytag-Bravos.pdf

@dirty838 ,Travis, These machines require you to use proper detergent to not create excessive sudsing HE detergents in correct amounts, recommended in the manual. Follow detergent manufacturer's or manuals directions on the use of product. Try running a wash cycle with just water. See links below, they will tell you how to put washer in diagnostic mode, to retrieve codes to see what faults are possibly a drain pump/clog issue and trouble shooting links, manual. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
