    yeah it states that it's SL.. or maybe it's 5L .. but it just shuts the washer off and makes 3 beeps.. But what does the LS mean also, just in case...

    Suds Lock S L
    The motor controller senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive

    motor. If a potential suds lock is detected, the control tries up to 3 times to clean out the unit

    with a mini-cycle. See Use and Care Guide for more information.

    “SL” is displayed if suds are detected but the unit is unable to clean out suds. This may

    indicate a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent or excessive suds.

    Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Kenmore Elite calypso 21086 leaves dirt streaks on clothes


Run the hottest & fullest cycle possible - without a load - and add a grease remover - like goo-gone. Fatty tissues build up inside the tub - and can be released on hot cycles if HOT wasn't used very often.

It is recommended to run a HOT load every 2 weeks or so to avoid these buildups and staining of clothes.

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.

21086 reading sl


If it is top loading one, you use powders for 'top loading machines'. If yours is a front loader pl use powders for 'front loading machines'. It makes a big difference in cleaning.

Kenmore elite calypso 21086 top load


SL = Suds Lock

SL is a suds lock code it can be caused by the drain pump not draining the water, too much detergent, non HE detergent, or extra heavy loads, try running it empty, if code persits it is a computer/main controller/timer failure

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 state of 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

FL" flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. This could just be a fluke, or you could have a possible bad pressure switch that is not shutting off the water supply correctly. In addition, fill valves have been known to short out causing water to constantly fill in the wash tub. Lastly, your household water pressure could be too low and won't shut the fill valves off properly. Inlet water pressure should be a minimum of 10-20 psi. 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. I hope some of this leads you in the right direction.
