Q:

What does an SL error code mean on my calypso washer?

A:

The SL means Suds Lock.

  • 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.
    • Check the pump and sump for obstruction and operation.
    • This could be caused by a heavy load, excessive detergent, suds, or a non HE detergent.

If you start a cycle with no clothes, are there visible suds or soap?

  • If so, run a few cycles with no clothes and nothing but hot water.
  • If not make sure you are using the correct soap and amount of soap.

There may also be “drag� on the drive system. Check for friction issues, move the basket by hand. Does it feel smooth and move easily?

If you need more assistance please resubmit question with more details. I will be looking forward to helping you again in the near future.

Q:

Why is my Kenmore elite washer displaying the error "SL"?

A:

You did not indicate what type of detergents that you are using. First, this washer requires High Efficiency "HE" detergents or it could easily be over suds with regular type detergents.

The "SL" error code is an indication of SUDS LOCK. The motor control board 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 three (3) times to clean out the washer with a mini-cycle.

"SL" is displayed if suds are detected but the unit is unable to clean out the suds.

This could be caused by:

  • A bad drain pump
  • An extra heavy load
  • Excessive detergent/wrong type of detergent
  • Excessive suds
  • Restriction in the drain system or blockage

Press Stop/Cancel to clear the display.

Try running the washer with no clothes or detergent to clean out the washer, if it continues to display "SL" I recommend calling for service to diagnose the problem.
