Calypso has unbalanced "L5" message


LS is a "Lid Switch Error"

The control should flash this error code if it cannot detect the lid switch opening and closing properly. This error code may also be used if there is a disagreement between the motor and machine controllers on the stat if the lid switch. The control should not allow the unit to run in this condition.
This code will also appear if the user presses the START key while the lid is open.
Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. If opening the lid or pressing STOP/CANCEL does not clear it, unplug your washer for 5 minutes.
Here is a link to a PDF manual for it also.

Whirlpool calypso top load washer GVW9959k stuck on FL


FL=FLOOD CONDITION
I bet I know what the root cause of the problem is. TOO MUCH DETERGENT. Why do I yell that? OK here is what happens. Suds make the computer monitor work overtime to wash the clothes. The the computer measures the amount of water being used. The computer is also trying to correct the suds problem by adding water during hissy-cycles. (I call em hissy cyles.) Solution: Clean the soap dispencer use HE soap and use the right amount which is:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash load

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

Kenmore elite calypso doesn't respond to buttons except cancel


I've had a similiar problem on my calypso. In my case the key pad would go dead after washing or pushing stop after a few minutes. If I unpluged the unit for a few minutes it would work again. This would appear to be in the controller board. I removed the board and inspected it finding no problems. After re-installing the board the washer appears to be working again. My conclusion is that there is a loose connector/connection. I'd suggest you remove and re-install all the connectors on the controller board. This is the board closest to the power chord.

Good Luck, George S.

Error Message


Your owner's manual may give a troubleshooting guide for the error code your machine might give you. Is it possible you have locked out the control panel? I "think" the calypso has a control lockout, usually a start button or cancel button. If you press it in for 3-5 seconds, it can lock or unlock panel. If all else fails, try unplugging it and see it it will drain out the water.

Whirlpool Calypso Cycle Problem


The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.

LD and OB on Calypso


“Ld” flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating
pressure switch resets.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.



OB:
If the motor controller detects an unrecoverable off-balance condition, the machine controller
will shut down and display an “ob” for off balance.
The lid switch must be opened at least once before restarting the cycle, if this condition
occurs. Opening the lid will allow the customer to view and redistribute the load.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Basically, it sounds like your drain pump is bad or clogged, and the extra water is throwing the spin cycle off balance

Kenmore Elite Calypso Washer


I'm in the process of tearing apart my Calypso, Ugh. I found the diagnostic chart inside the machine. 5L is actually 'SL' which means suds lock, and can be an indicator of a failed pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds. Corrective action is to press Stop/Cancel to clear the display.
