Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Is there a filter and how/do I need to clean it?

I bought the house with this machine in it, so have no documentation. I have a number of pets with lots of bedding, therefore, lots of hair to accumulate during washing. I'm concerned about a filter clogging somewhere. Is this a valid concern, and if so what do I need to do to rectify it? Thanks.

    This is one of those machines that won't let you see anything with the lid open, but I have felt around the inside rim & found one spot where stuff had (ALREADY!) gathered, so I yanked that out. But I KNOW there's bound to be more in there, & I just don't know how to get AT it. I guess I'll have to order the manual for the thing. Thanks for your help.

Most washing machines have a lint trap that is easy to find. I don't know this model, but open the lid and find where the recirculating water falls out from a hose or plastic tray above the wash tub. somewhere below this point, in the path of the falling water, is a lint trap. remove it and clean it

Hi, These do not have filter that can be cleaned or changed. If you notice water draining slow at any time, you will need to open up the pump (not hard to do) and clean out any lint.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

My machine will spray from the hose attachment, but not when I am doing floors.


Check Flow Indicator Filter under the Flow Indicator. Turn Indicator cap counter-clockwise, remove rotor. Filter is under rotor and pulls out. Clean filter. Additionally, check LINT FILTER in the clean water tank cap. Check you User's Guide if you have more questions or call the Bissell Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691 The other thing you can do in this case is reseat the tank. It may be blocking the housing connection but the sprayer connection is smaller and open. Cleaning the filters after each use though is recommended.

Why does my filter collect so much dog hair and decreases the suction of the machine. I clean and change (alternate) filters everytime I vacumn, that isn't normal, is it? It seems like I have a seal or...


You obviously have a pet and it's good to see your machine is doing it's job. The only reason you could lose suction while collecting pet hair is due to the pet hair being a solid mass and air not been able to flow through the filters.( must be a lot of hair). Suction loss is only when the particles passing through your machine are dense therefore it will reduce suction and airflow . Very common on vacuum cleaners. Do not worry too much . Also check to see if you have Amy cracks in the seal between the drum and the vacuum cleaner itself

My Dyson Animal vacuum smells horribly of dog. It's worse than my dog has ever smelled - even at his worst. How do I take apart the Animal to clean it properly? Can I use a weak water/Chlorox solution...


hi Donna.
Complete removal of pet hair from the home is a quandary many pet owners face. The Dyson Animal series vacuums use centrifugal force to remove animal hair from carpets, floors, curtains and upholstery. The high-powered vacuum is bagless, allowing you to extract pet hair from surfaces without worrying about running out of vacuum bags. As your Dyson Animal vacuum is exposed to pet hair and dander, a smell can develop. Similar to other small appliances, a vacuum needs periodic cleaning to keep it looking and smelling clean. When you use basic cleaning and deodorizing techniques, you can get the smell out of your Dyson Animal vacuum.

Step 1

Remove the bagless receptacle for pet hair according to the directions provided for your Dyson Animal vacuum. Hold the receptacle upside down inside a trash bag and tap the bottom to remove pet hair and dirt.

Step 2


Mix 1/2 tsp. of dishwashing detergent with 1/2 gallon of warm water in a bucket. Dip a clean cloth into the soap solution and wring it out.

Step 3

Wash the inside and outside of the receptacle with the cloth to remove dirt and dander that cause odor. Rinse the receptacle with a cloth dampened with water. Dry it thoroughly with another cloth.

Step 4

Remove the HEPA filter from your Dyson Animal vacuum. Pick visible clumps of pet hair off the filter and discard them. Flush the filter with cool water to wash out dirt and hair. Rinse the filter until the water runs clean. Gently squeeze the filter and allow it to air-dry for up to 12 hours to ensure it dries completely.

Step 5

Moisten a cloth with undiluted vinegar. Wipe off the exterior of the vacuum with the vinegar. Deodorize the receptacle and interior areas, where the bagless receptacle and filter go, by wiping them with the vinegar-moistened cloth. Dry the vacuum with a clean cloth.

Step 6


Place two drops of vanilla extract on a cotton ball. Drop the cotton ball into the receptacle before securing it to the vacuum to prevent odor from building up. Vanilla extract is an effective natural odor absorber.

hope this helps you out.

I get a message stating that the tv is overheating and eventually turns itself off. What needs to be replaced?


The problem could be that the filter on the back of the TV needs to be cleaned. Remove the pop out door and clean the foam filter. Do not get it wet, just use the vaccum or blow the dirt out. There is a fan behind the filter, so any dust and pet dander is filtered before the air is sucked into your unit. I make it a habit to clean mine every 6 months. I'd do it more often if your house is in a dry dusty location.

Sorry, but a Rainbow D4 has no filtration at all. The E series has a HEPA filter that needs replacing. You can put liquid Lysol in the water on the D4 and that will help

Our Infocus sp5000 is shutting down because it is getting too hot. We had just cleaned the filter.


you also need to clean out the machine with canned air. also check to see that all of the fans are running. if they are not all running, they need to be replaced. also, the temp sensor near the lamp housing may also need replacing.

They make the worst machines, the rollers are cheap and they make it so you cant take them apart to clean them. You don't want a dyson either, they aren't any better for pets. With all that hardwood floors you should get a good canister vacuum, sebo and miele are the best.
