Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
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!!!!
The bag type device is an overflow and should never have "water"in it, but it will get suds if you are using the wrong type of soap.
you need to use "HE" soap as it is a non-sudsing soap and thats why you are getting suds leaking from your unit.
just run the rinse and spin cycle until the suds are gone. then use the right type of soap and it will work properly with no leaks.

Tips for a great answer:
It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

You are right, E13 is a long drain
time error and to solve this issue the pump filter assembly should be cleaned
completely. There is a tiny hole you can stick a
pin through in the access panel on the lower front right corner. Push a pin through
the whole and turn the access panel counter clockwise and it will remove so
that you can unscrew the plastic drain cap behind it. Remove the plastic drain
cap and clear the drain behind it. After doing all these things if the issue returns then it
means the drain pump is faulty and should be replaced. Hope this
helps...please post back for further assistance.
