Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Waaaayyyyy too many suds collecting in drain box after 2 back to back loads!

I've had the Calypso for 6 years. Always used HE detergent. Never had this problem til recently. In the last year, I can't run more than 2 loads back to back - The suds at the drain hose get to be too much & run down the wall! Mr Plumber came & cleared the line - NOTHING was found. I thought for sure a clog was forming. Thus, I think the problem is with the washer. I'm still using the same amount of HE - even trying diff. brands. Doesn't seem to matter. Suds too much. Do you think it's the pump not pumping enough water? WHY would I suddenly need to use LESS HE detergent after all these years? I'm afraid my clothes won't get clean without the proper amount. HELP!

My Smsung dishwasher always has suds in the bottom after cycle has completed


Couple of questions?
1. do you have a water softener?
2. what type of detergent are you using and how much?
3. is the detergent HE rated?

To clear out the suds run a cup of white vinegar with 4 liters of cold water and run a rinse cycle. or just put a cup of white vinegar into the dishwasher and run a normal load with NO SOAP... you need to clear the suds from the system to work properly again. the proper detergent to use in most new dishwashers is powder style that is HE rated. and don't use a lot either.

Whirlpool Calypso Washing Machine


Have you changed detergent? Have you installed a water softener or has your water source changed? Either of these could cause increased sudsing. Suds could be splashing. I have has suds on the lid when I used regular detergent, not HE.
