Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite flashing codes.

Ok here it is…I have a Kenmore Elite110.2206, purchased in 2002 ish. Two years ago I replaced the pump. (under-wire problem) It has worked fine to this point. It has started flashing ob and ld. We took it apart and found a penny and a dime in the hose and took apart the pump cover and removed some debris. Put it all back together and now it is flashing again and it is now leaking out the bottom. It is also not draining the water out all the way from the rinse cycle. Was I suppose to “reset it” or something? I really do not have the money to call the repairman out, nor do I want to have to buy a new machine.

    I should have said I took all the clothes out and it wont drain at all. I have tried to run a short cycle, express wash, custom program none will drain the washer.

  • H. Hood Jan 08, 2009

    Day three of the saga. We have taken the machine apart again. Manually drained the tub-again. There was stuff around the black pump impeller cleaned it off-again. Double checked all the hoses reattached, again-hopefully they will not leak....Also cleaned the area around the lid just in case that was giving the lid open signal. One big question remaining, what do you mean in the above comment by "both pumps". I see the pump with the two hoses, one in and one out, black and yellow. I see the motor for the tub but alas no other items resembling a second pump...Humm?

    PS. First very small, trial load completed washing fine, our fingers are crossed.

Ob means out of balance and ld means lid not closed. so i would guess that you have a washer that is not draining or just needs the clothes moved around.
if you have a plugged pump it will do the same thing. make sure the pump will drain properly and then try it again. if it still goes out then try it with no clothes. that way you know its not hte clothes causing the problem.
recheck the pump and hoses. be sure it will drain the full tub or it wont work right.

    ok since now we know the unit wont drain, then there are 2 things to check next. make sure the lid does close and lock so the machine can run, and if it does try to run, but wont drain, then you need to check the drain pump to see if it is blocked with something like a quarter or a sock.
    you can get to the pump from the rear panel and then be ready to catch the water so you can remove the hose going into the pump. do check both pumps, 1 is for recirculation and the other is for draining.

    your unit probably doesnt not have the second pump. it is used for recirculation on some models, but you didnt have a complete model number so i had to guess which one you had.
    i would guess that by cleaning out the pump, you took care of the problem with it not draining and now it should be fine. that is until you get a plugged pump again. sorry about the confusion. good luck in the future and now you know how to check that pump and hose if it happens again.

I have a kenmore elite HE3 washer. I was getting the sud error and then eventually F02. I cleaned out all the drain lines and pump filter trap and this did not help. I've now replaced the pump

I endevor to purchase a new unit. I've had the same electrical issue with the "F" variable coming up for EACH cycle. I've pressed the Pause/Cancel button and attempted to resume the cycle. While that did work, again, the "F" would come up and the cycle disrupted. I think I will end up paying quite a bit to have it serviced. My washer is 7 years old and I've had it serviced twice to date. I intend on purchasing new in the New Year, a Samsung or LG.

Flashes error code F06

Check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. I have seen a loose wire connector do this F06 error.

If all checks ok, then its a faulty CCU that needs to be replaced. Here is the part.

Kenmore elite he 5t the code f21 comes on, the hose is ok.

This is a Long Drain Issue. Likely that something is stuck in the pump trap. Take off the mottom tree screws under the drum panel. This will remove the drum panel on the front. From under neither you can see the drain pipe trap. Unscrew the trap cap in the from. Clean out all debris and re-install. this should do it.

Kenmore HE3t DL code

My husband and I had this same problem, but after visiting this website and reading through some of th posted solutions, we were able to fix our problem. Our 3-year-old Kenmore Elite H3 would not start on any cycle. It kept flashing the error code "dL/F", which we found out means "door lock failure." Taking advice, we unplugged our machine, removed the top panel, and rechecked the wiring. It worked! We think the wiring may have become loosened over time due to the jiggling vibration of our machine. Hope this helps you!
