Whirlpool Calypso Washer Mdl#30942 gets stuck during rinse cycle. Machine runs, then stops, but does not rinse completely. Last 35-38 min cycle is problematic. What is wrong and how to fix it?


It's hard to tell by your description of the problem, but it sounds like it could be the timer If it's not running while in spin mode, or as simple as a belt if it's running and not spinning fast enough.

Whirlpool calypso top load washer GVW9959k stuck on FL


FL=FLOOD CONDITION
I bet I know what the root cause of the problem is. TOO MUCH DETERGENT. Why do I yell that? OK here is what happens. Suds make the computer monitor work overtime to wash the clothes. The the computer measures the amount of water being used. The computer is also trying to correct the suds problem by adding water during hissy-cycles. (I call em hissy cyles.) Solution: Clean the soap dispencer use HE soap and use the right amount which is:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash load

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

After washer runs for a few minutes it stops and runs agains, stops and runs again with stop and start intervals getting shorter and never finishes cycle. Seems it's unable to spin continuously.


there are usualy sensors for the spin so that the drum is balanced properly if one of the sensors is faulty it will not spin or if the wate is not draining aswell so check the owners manual to see if there are any tests for he sensors that can be run to give you a code for the fault

Whirlpool Calypso Mod: GVW9959KQ2, stops and shows "ob" as code for fast final spin. Also making high pitched whine during wash cycle. Appl svce place has suggested bearing or xmission. Any possible...


Sorry to say but they are right. The Calypso washer was a horible design given to whirlpool from maytag. I would suggest you go buy new machine. Buy someting that looks simple and easy to use. The more complicated the unit the more problems you will have down the road.

Never stops - time remaining doesn't change after 38 minutes


this sounds like a bad timer motor.this what determines the cycle time.

Whirlpool Calypso Cycle Problem


The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.
