Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
My Calypso, purchased in 2001 from Sears, continually stops and starts when filling with water at the beginning of the wash and rinse cycle. This happens sporadically, though is now happening with almost every load. No error code is displayed, but the timer never changes. When I say "stops and starts" I mean in split seconds, so the water never fills and the machine doesn't continue, like it's stuck in the cycle. We have pulled the machine apart (husband is quite handy and knowledgeable) and have had Sears repairmen out several times. No answers or suggestions from them - and if they think I'm going back to Sears for a replacement washer they're nuts. Any suggestions? If not I may be forced into braving the world of crappy washing machines currently on the market. Thanks!
Looks like part 8571359 the control electronics is out and guess what? Can only get through Sears and Whirlpool. This is why you cant get an error code, it isnt working well enough to choke one out. You know this is hard to say but a Oasis has its issues but at least it is still on market. I would if hubby is handy to find a used machine and pull the part. It is a chance but cheaper than 500 bucks to have a tech come out and fix.
