Either that or you have a bad u joint causeing an overcurrent situation. check at the board first. make sure that you use he detergent because the regualr soap leaves a nasty build up.

    CA error code means it's an overcurrent situation. check the machine and motor board there is a fuse on one of them usually is's on the motor board. If it's blown you need to replace the board. the board is behind the touch panel

Screen reading CA


Hello there
The CA code means that the average current draw at the motor winding has exceeded 5.55 amps for more than two seconds. This could mean a problem with the drive motor, the thermal protector, or the motor controller board. Overloading the washer can also cause this fault. Page 57 of the manual gives specific tests for the drive motor and wiring harness.

I am getting a CA code on my Calypso Washer. I can't figure out what it means, and I cannot find the manual.


CA stands for Average Current trip meaning there is a 2 second average of current draw greater than 5.55 Amps at the motor windings.


it could mean problems with the thermal protection circuit, the drive motor, or the motor controller pcb (MCU). Overloading the unit can possibly cause this problem but it is a rare thing to have happen.

Won't fillCalypso whirlpool washer model#GVW9959KQ1 LD on display


LD is long drain error, the machine does not fill because it is in fault mode, but error is on drain system.

If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.

Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.

Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.

Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for ablockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

Ifall the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.Problemwith water pump are far more commonly causing this problemsthenfaulty timer board.

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...

CA error on washing machine


sounds like you have a bad motor controller board. there is a fuse on this board it's directly behind the consol on the left side. check the fuse if it is bad you know that is what your problem is.

Repair manual


Somebody stated in a consumer product review that he found a repair manual mounted inside the front panel of the machine. He also gives some details of repair work that he did to his washer, so you may want to read the review for yourself. Link below: --> http://www.dealtime.com/xPR-Whirlpool-GVW9959K~RD-380361477764
