Question about Kenmore Elite 21086
My washer reads (SL) OR (5L) and then shuts off.. is there a solution to my problem? also the (LS).. is the lid switch then also what would i do to fix that.. ???
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
