If the error code still appears it means that the reed switch that senses if the lid is in the closed position is either jammed or faulty. You can try to temporarily bypass it and see what happens, but don't leave it in that condition. If necessary, have it replaced.

My whirlpool duet is displaying the error code 888. It works ine through all cycles but the time displays 888. All the lights are illuminated and there is a high pitch alarm sound that remains on until...


Please state brand and model of your washing machine for accurate and specific solution...


There is no 888 error code on my list of whirlpool..I think the 888 flashes is the time remaining..

If the lid opens while the unit is in running mode, time remaining will flash in the display.

Close the lid and press START to continue with the cycle.

Hope it helps..

I have a top load machine which shows LE error code despite lid is closed properly. This continues for half an hour then machine starts working again but the error resumes after every two minutes. Plz help


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'LE' stands for Lock/Lid Error. There is likely to be a problem with either the lid solenoid/lock or the 'lid closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
Good luck,

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.

Du f flashes as code on whirlpooll whasher??


The F30 error code (dU) will flash when the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position.



Door Unlock Error

A Door Unlock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked.
It will try to unlock the door 6 times before displaying the error.


Door Lock Mechanism broken.
Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects
Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure


If it is a cabrio:
dU flashes if the following conditions occur:
Excessive force on door lid is preventing lock bolt from retracting.
Wash media buildup is preventing lock bolt from retracting.
Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lid is in an unlocked state.





TEST #8 Door Lid Lock
Perform the following checks if washer fails to lock (or unlock).
1. Perform Manual: Door Switch and Manual: Door Lid Lock tests.
2. Remove the console to access the machine/ motor control assembly. See Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies.
3. Visually check that the P12 connector is inserted all the way into the machine/motor control. If visual check passes, go to step 4. If visual check fails, reconnect P4 and repeat step 1.
4. Check the lid lock motor winding and switches by removing P12 from the machine/ motor control and checking the
resistance values....



Component/Resistance Unlocked/Resistance Locked/Contacts Measured/Contacts Measured:


Motor Winding/35 ±5 O/35 ±5 O/P12-2/P12-3/
Lock Switch - Home/0 O/Open Circuit/P12-1/P12-4
Lock Switch - Lock/Open Circuit/0 O/P12-1/P12-7
Lock Switch - Lid/Lid Closed = 0 OLid Open = Open Circuit/Lid Closed = 0 O Lid Open = Open Circuit/P12-1/P12-5


If resistance values are good, go to step 5. If switch measurements do not match the values shown in the table for unlocked (or locked) conditions, a problem
exists in the door lid lock. Replace the door lid lock.

5. If the Manual: Door Switch or Manual: Door Lid Lock in step 1 failed, then the machine/motor control has failed: Unplug washer or disconnect power.
Replace machine/motor control assembly. Perform the Manual: Door Switch and Manual: Door Lid Lock in step 1 to verify repair.

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).
