Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
I have a Whirlpool Calypso model #GVW9959kL2 , I live in New Orleans and when we returned after the hurricane we washed 2 loads of clothes. 2 days later I went to wash again and it looked like I had no power. I checked the breaker,outlet and plug. I also checked the plug,black box it connects to on both sides and each card connector for power with a volt meter, every point shows power. I also checked the door switch with a ohms meter and that checked good. We have had a few power surges and next day my washer came on, I washed 2 more loads of clothes fine, the next day my washer shows no power again when pushing the buttons. It came on again the next day but the day after it is out again. Any ideas? I usually fix my own applliances but I am limited with this digital instruments system. I will appreciate any help, Mark
Yup, this is what happened to me. I also get a "44" error code and erroneous beeping. This is exactly what the class action law suit was about. The Whirlpool Calypso's of your type have the red LED and touch controls, right? They go bad internally after a few years, regardless of how much or how little you use them. There is nothing you can do. Order a new or reconditioned control panel, or have it serviced and repaired by a qualified company referred by Whirlpool Service... Don't do this yourself... The part is about $200 or so plus $60 to $80 minimum call out charge, and sometimes the new parts are as bad as the one you currently have. Best Bet... Time to upgrade to something newer. You may spend your money on this repair, yet in a few months, have the same thing again or something else go wrong. It's just not worth the repair.... Indy :)
