Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
If there is a clog and a snake will not work or you do not have a snake you could try a 'backwash'.
The normal drain pipe goes from the drain to a tub at the base of ther washer. The drain may be clogged in the line or at the base insiode the tub. By fixing your cold water hose or your garden hose you can force warer in the oppostie direction. A coiple of winds of electrical tape will hold the needed pressure.
This will work if the clog is a build up of material lint or other debris. Normally this will break up the clog and allow it to be discharged a little at a time. If the clog is as a result of a solid object, the 'backwash' will not work or may only be a temporary fix.
Try a normal wash with only a few items to check if it worked.

If the clog is not in the pump or in the drain line it could be in the tub where the water drains out.
