Below will tell you about the part...what may be wrong with the part and how to check the part.

From the service manual.

Sounds as if the lid lock mechanism is broken.


Lid Lock Mechanism-Since this washer does not utilize a brake, a lid lock is used to

prevent access during the spin cycles. During the drain and spin portions of the cycle, a lid

lock mechanism will lock the lid. The lid locks are based on cycle phase. In general, the lid

locks when the basket spins greater than 23 rpm. After main wash, the lid is locked, and

remains locked until the end of the cycle. The lid must be closed for the machine to fill, wash,

drain, or spin. Magnets in the washer lid close a reed switch in the lid lock. This acts as the
lid switch.

"lid" (Lid Opened)

Is the lid open?
Close the lid to clear the display.

Is the lid open?

The lid must be closed during operation. The washer will not operate with the lid open.


How to remove the lid lock mechanism to check and or replace.


To remove the lid lock:

a) Raise the cabinet top (see step 3e

page 4-4 for the procedure).

b) Remove the two hex-head screws from

the lid lock and remove the lock.

c) Cut the indicated cable standoff from

the cabinet top.

d) Unclip the lid lock cable from the cabinet
top flange.

e) Disconnect the lid lock cable connector

from the machine/motor control connector

at P12.

f) Pull the end of the lid lock cable from

the control, and remove the lid lock and
cable assembly from the washer
Lid Lock Connector P12
How to check the lid switch/......resistance chart

Check the lid lock motor winding and switches by removing P12 from the machine/

motor control, and checking the resistance values shown in the following Lid Lock Resistance table.
Resistance locked or unlocked Contacts measured
Motor Winding 35 ±5 ? 35 ±5 ? P12-2 P12-3

-

lock switch home 0 open circuit p12-4




Lock Switch - lock Lock Open Circuit 0 ? P12-7


Lock Switch -Lid Lid Open = Open Circuit P12-5
Lid Open = Open Circuit

If resistance values are good, go to step 6.If switch measurements do not match

the values shown in the table for unlocke (or locked) conditions, a problem

exists in the door lid lock. Replace the door lid lock. 6. If the Manual: Door Switch or Manual:

Door Lid Lock tests in step 1 failed, then the machine/motor control has failed: Replace machine/motor control assembly.

Perform the Manual: Door Switch and Manual: Door Lid Lock tests in step 1 to verify repair.


If you need further assistance please post questions.

Whirlpool cabrio model 6300sw1 won't aggitate and gives ol code


It is overload error.
"oL" (Over Load)
Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to fill •
and begin the wash cycle. If the washer is overloaded, it will
drain any water and detergent that was added during the fill.
To correct the overload, remove several items and add
detergent. Close lid and press START.

Also try to download user manual from this site and check page 19.

Model wtw6500ww1, error code LD, power off power on selected cycle but wont start just blinks and locks all buttons. let it sit and then error code comes back. washer is empty but wont reset to start...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Suspect that stands for LiD. There is likely to be a problem with either the lid solenoid/lock or the 'lid closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hello, When trying to wash we are getting a LS code in the time slot. Not sure how to reset or what that code means.


LS is the error code for Lid Switch not detecting closure. The switch is located under the top of the machine on the right side. It is triggered by the lever attached to the pivot point of the lid. The lever might be missing the contact point of the switch or the switch might be broken.
Google Calypso Washer Service Manual and you sould be able to find a pdf download. It is most helpful and gives error codes and tells how to get into the machine.

What is L5 code on whirlpool calypso model #GVW9959KQ0?


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 show in display and won't work in calypso washer


ss13679,
I believe your code is actually 'LS'. This codes shows up when the controller cannot detect the lid switch opening and closing properly. This error code may also be used if there is a diagreement 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 you press the start key while the lid is open. Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.
