Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
I had a load of clothes in and at some point it just stopped and was flashing 5L. I wasn't home at the time, so I don't know if it made any noises first, but when I tried to restart it (it's full of soaking wet clothes, I think it was going into the rinse and/or spin cycle) now it makes a weird buzzing noise after about 60 seconds of filling up and then when I turn it off, it sounds like a motor winding down. Still flashes 5L. Help! Thanks!
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.
