Question about GE WHRE5550K Top Load Washer
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
D5 is a lid switch error. It comes on when there are 3 complete cycles without a lid switch actuation. Either the lid switch has failed or something is causing the lid switch to not sense lid movement. This is a proximity type switch that uses a magnet to actuate the switch. Check to see that both the switch is in place and that the lid itself is not loose at the hinge or shifted to one side.
The lid switch is item 90 of this link:
You can try to unplug it for 6 minutes and plug it back in again to clear the code but if the lid switch is bad you will get the D5 code again. Not only that if you have children around it is not safe to leave the washer un-attended with a bad switch because the machine will not stop spinning in the spin cycle with a bad switch. If they lift the lid and stick their hands inside the end result can be quite horrific.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
