There are 6 acts, if not performed in Salah, the Salah is invalidated and this is irrelevant whether the omission is intentional or by mistake. Even Sajda Sahw or Sajda Sahu cannot compensate an omission in one of these fard. We have explained them in this link “6 Fard Acts during Salah omission of which invalidates the Salah”.
Moreover, there are fourteen wajibat in prayer. If any of the Wajib is omitted by an error in Salah, then it requires rectification. The procedure laid down by the Shariah to rectify the mistake is that a forgetfulness prostration shall be performed. If Sajda Sahw is not performed, Salah becomes invalidate and need to be repeated.
It should also be noted that, if any person knowingly committed any mistake by leaving any wajib act in Salah then there is no Sajda sahw and he must repeat his prayer. The rule for the rectification of errors is equal to men and women.
