Sorry, I haven't. In fact, I started to use my older washing machine, because I got someone to fix this one and it still wouldn't work. He told me that the newer models are not built to last, and that they are purposely built to break down and need constant fixing. Good luck.

My whirpool dryer panel comes on but when you push the start button!, it clicks off and then displays the pf code.


PF is a Power Failure error meaning electricity has been interrupted to the machine.

Any electrical interruption to the machine such as a circuit breaker being reset or weather related power outage can cause a PF error code.

To remedy;

Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the PF in the display.

Try to start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button.

If you continue to receive the PF error code, the control board may need to be replaced

Code SL or 5L?


It is Code SL which means Suds Lock. Either you have too much soap suds for it to drain properly or Your drain pump is clogged and not spinning properly. Try running it through a rinse and spin cycle and if you still get a code (SL or Ld) then you will probably need to replace your drain pump.

I keep getting a code "SL" on the display. Before this happens,the washer will stop counting back at 26,and seemingly try to go through the same process a few times. What is the problem and how much might...


Error code "SL" is displayed if suds are detected but the machine is unable to clean it out after three tries with a mini-cycle. This may indicate a bad pump, an extra heavy load, or inappropriate detergent is used.

Press STOP/CANCEL button to clear the display. Do not overload the machine and use a high efficiency (HE) detergent. Use 1/2, or even lower, of the normal amount if regular detergent is used.

The drain pump assembly price ranges between $110 and $130 exclusive of service fee if you ask a technician to replace it for you. Please advise me if the error code still appear on the display for the drain pump troubleshooting and replacement procedure.

Calypso displaying SL or5L messages, did you get it fixed?


I see at least 2 of these a week. 9 out of 10 times, it's the pump. If the u-joint is bad, it will put strain on the motor causing it to think it's overloaded as well.

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.

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
