Calypso washer won't spin and drain properly

I have a Kenmore Elite Calypso washing machine that has stopped and makes a humming noise when I try to get it to spin to finish the load or even try to re start the load as a new one. It's not pumping the water from the final spin. and not reaching a full spinning motion when I try to just use the extended spin option. I have made sure there isn't a kink in the hose and taken some of the wet towels out to make sure it wasn't too large a load..I understand there was a class action law suit on the model I own. I have had no problems up until now. It is 6 years old model # 110.2206

I have a similar problem. My Calypso won't go through a whole cycle. After cleaning up much water from a fast leak and completely emptying the water from the washer the machine seems to be leaking from somewhere on the back side near the top and spilling down. There is some type of long,tube-shaped clear plastic (almost like a a ziplock bag material) that is hanging from the possible source of the leak and when I try to cycle the machine through a rinse and spin cycle suds are emmited through and around the plastic tube. I want to take the hoses off to try to try to see if there is some type of clog but I am worried that more water will spill out as the machine appears to have much water down in the holding tank below(there is also more water in washer since I have attempted more partial cycles.) I believe this water needs to be emptied before I can run a successful cycle on the machine but there seems to be no way to get it out. PLEASE HELP!!!!

SOURCE: Where is the reset switch located on the Calypso

There is no reset.

Simply unplug for 40 minutes to reset the ECU.

SOURCE: Problem for Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load

The C1 error is displayed when the motor tries to pull more than 26 amps to run.

This indicates a problem with the motor or motor controller.

Overloading or excessive suds can also cause this error.

If you like to make a few more checks then the image below contains the instructions for entering the diagnostic test mode.

Its a short cycle that runs all of the components so the operation of each can be checked.

I hope this helps but an intermittent C1 error can be hard to pin down.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wbrrkqqwkwbqsdgxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/kdkftbfkwxkfsqdgqsg/1/1303472/5961857/image5668img-or.jpg

From the service manual....

"C1 = 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."

Kenmore Elite Oasis HT makes loud noises during spin cycle.


The tub may be unbalanced and wobbling. This may be due to washing heavy items such as rugs, towels, etc. If it is noisy with regular laundry loads, the mechanism that supports the tub may be loose or broken.

Kenmore washing machine catalyst stops during rinse cycle


The hum you here is the probably the motor trying to turn, but it is about burned out. If it moves a little with a full load and more with no load, it is probably bad. If you hear a hum and the drum never moves at all you probably have a broken belt.

The motor coupling is about to completly go out on you and then it will not spin at all. This is common on these machines. the repair should be under $100.00. The motor brake may also be dragging.

Water pump out??


The washer filled with too much water, causing a switch to trip. Then everything stops. It tries to drain during FL but if it can't drain, the washer powers down.Choose Drain & Spin to let the washer drain. Then you have to take the washer apart. Fix the problem. I personally can't tell you what to do because I don't own a Calypso.

POSSIBLE CAUSES:
Bad Pump
High Water Flow
