Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
Kenore Elite Calypso Wont Drain
Oh the dreaded calypso pump...Seen that one a million times. Pumps get clogged pretty easily. Try to get the water out manually first. Than push the washer back and lean it against the wall so that you can access the bottom. Remove the 3 screws. Bottom panel should come off. The pump is on the right, its black. Get ready with a shop vac or alot of towels, theres gonna be a flood. There are 2 clamps on black hoses that need to be taken off so that you can slide the hoses off the pump. Next remove the 3 bolts that hold the pump in place. Next lower the pump out of the hole it sits in. Youll have to follow the wiring harness up and disconnect it. Now you can try and clen out the pump or replace it. Part # is 285990. Costs about 75.00. Hope that helps. Let me know if yiu need more help. Dave www.washermd.com

LD and OB error codes combined, Kenmore/Sears/Whirlpool Calypso Washer. (part 1)
The Calypso washer takes a very long time to drain or doesn’t drain at all if something stops the flow of water through the pump, any of the hoses, and/or the drain pipe. Then the LD error code begins.
1. Check the drain pipe first because it’s most accessible. The drain pipe comes out of the machine through a small indented plate at the upper right of the back of the machine. The pipe is corrugated, and a ring holds the pipe flush to the plate at one of the ridges. Slide the ring away from the plate and remove the plate. Then the pipe is slack and easy to check for kinks and plugs.
2. The LF (overflow, flood) error might be a minor side effect of running the machine through a cycle after erasing the LD code without fixing the drain problem. To disappear the LF code:
a. Lay the pipe on the floor or ground where it can drain to a sewer, run the washer through a cycle, and the water caught in the tank might or might not run out.
b. Use gravity to drain the machine. Remove the big back panel. Locate and detach two small clear plastic tubes inserted in a small well at the bottom of the water tank. Position a strong board or other item to hold the top control panel of the machine about 4 inches above ground level while the bottom sits at ground level. Position the board below the control panel so that it hangs free and doesn’t bear any of the machine’s weight. The 4 inch clearance is necessary to keep the machine from crushing the hot and cold water hoses and electric cord.
c. Turn off the water supply before putting the machine through any more test cycles. Repeat 2a and 2b as needed after failed repair attempts.
