I'm having trouble finding that code. could it be ds ? I'm pulling up tech sheets now, please bare with me. thanks, Bryan

The "D5" error code on a GE washer indicates a lid switch malfunction. This is not to be confused with the lid switch failure error although both are critical errors.


you need to order and replace this lid switch. the part # XXXXX XXXXX , its # XXXXX on this diagram, this is a magnetic switch. hope this helps, thanks, Bryan
