If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current limit has been breached,
the unit will return to standby mode and display either “CA” for average current limit trip or
“CI” for instantaneous current limit trip.
Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current draw greater than 5.55
Amps at the motor windings.
Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 Amps instantly at the motor windings.
This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector or motor controller. Overloading
the unit may cause this problem.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Calypso kenmore washing machine faulty spin cycle ''CA'' code


This code signifies that there may be a problem with the motor, thermal protector or motor controller. Overloading the appliance may cause such an error code. Try using a smaller load. If the code reappears, contact an appliance service company.

I have a ca code what does this mean


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error code CA means Average current limit. This error code will display if the load of clothes is more then the normal load. Also if current limit breaches then status signal comes back from the motor controller. The unit will return to standby mode and display CA. Average current trip occurs if the current draw at the motor windings is greater than 5.55 amps in 2 seconds. This error occurs if there is a problem with the drive motor, thermal protector or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Kenmore elite calypro CA error code. Plus makes


The CA indicates that an average current limit on the drive motor has been exceeded (see images below). This is an extremely hard problem to diagnose and one that I've seen cause the best service techs to pull their hair out. It can be one of so many different components, and you have to catch conditions just right to have half a chance to discover which one it is.

Try removing some of the clothes; this could be caused by overloading. You could have a mechanical failure in the universal joint, wiring harness, the drive motor, central control, or the motor controller.

CA error code on Calypso Washer


CA Cl Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limit If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and display either CA for average current limit trip or Cl for instantaneous current limit trip. Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current draw greater than 5.55 amps at the motor windings. Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps instantly at the motor windings. This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem.

Meaning you had stuffed it full one time and then it was hard on the motor, you will have to change the drive motor most likely...
