The lid switch is most likely defective and will have to be replaced. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check out the video at the link I am providing and see if it helps you out with your problem. Sure hope so and best wishes.

Hello, When trying to wash we are getting a LS code in the time slot. Not sure how to reset or what that code means.


LS is the error code for Lid Switch not detecting closure. The switch is located under the top of the machine on the right side. It is triggered by the lever attached to the pivot point of the lid. The lever might be missing the contact point of the switch or the switch might be broken.
Google Calypso Washer Service Manual and you sould be able to find a pdf download. It is most helpful and gives error codes and tells how to get into the machine.

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 show in display and won't work in calypso washer


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.

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.
