Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
I'm having the same problem you and others had with the Calypso stoppinig and displaying the error codes SL or 5L. Any advise you can share to resolve this issue is appreciated.
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.

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.
"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
