Ss13679,
I believe your code is actually 'LS'. This codes shows up when the controller cannot detect the lid switch opening and closing properly. This error code may also be used if there is a diagreement between the motor and machine controllers on the state of the lid switch. The control should not allow the unit to run in this condition. This code will also appear if you press the start key while the lid is open. Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Your lid switch may be bad. Click here for some help. Also it looks lik this: click here

Hope this helps. Please give me a vote!

Calypso washer won't drain


It sounds like you may have something stuck in the pump...try and locate the pump(normaly at the bottom of machine)and unscrew the cover...be aware that the machine may still have water in it....once you unscrew the cover,have a look and a feel inside...there may be a coin or other object stoppint the pump from turning...remove any foreighn object...replace the screw on cover and try to drain the water again....this should solve your problem.

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.

L5 flashing on my calypso washer


.
The error code is actually a LS not L5, it stands for a lid switch error, it could be a bad lid switch or you may have forgotten you had a previous load in and went to rewash and went and started the machine without opening the lid which automatically throws an LS error.so check the lid switch .hope helps p-ls appreciate by rating as fixyaa

Code LS=Lid Switch. I had the same problem and found that if you pressed down firmly on the lid when closing I would not get the LS code. An uneven load will sometimes cause enough vibration to the lid to stop the washer and display the LS code again. Just lift lid and press down firmly again and start. Eventually I will open it up and adjust the switch.
