The control should flash this error code if the following conditions occur: ? The control cannot detect the lid switch opening and closing properly. ? 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). ? The user presses the START key while the lid is open. ? The user presses the START key without opening thelid between cycles.  Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

The washer stops working and the light flashes L5


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

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

WASHER CODE


You have a lid switch problem.
check for junk plugging up the area of the lid switch.
It needs to move both to the contact position(when door is closed)and to the non contact position(when door is open).
Also, the switch may be bad, or the wires going to it may have been cut by the drum because sometimes these wires are not fastened good enough and are able to contact the drum.
Anyway, the switch is just like turning a wall light switch on and off.
There may be an actuator on the door that presses against the switch, that could be missing(fallen off/broken off).
