Try unplugging the machine for 30 minutes. This may reboot the electronics. If not the controls are damaged and may need to be replaced.

Calypso washer will not start.

Now it looks like electronic micro controller problem. This sort of erratic functioning takes place due to corruption in the programme memory.

Contact the manufacturer's service center and obtain the right one and make them fix it. You will be covered by guarantee also!

Washer stopped and wont turn off

Unplug the appliance from power, or trip the circuit breaker and cut power to the appliance for about five minutes.

While appliance is unplugged check that the drain hose is not kinked and empty water from inside the machine.

Let me know if you still have the problem when you connect the appliance back.
If the appliance does not start back, then there is a faulty part, in that case give me the model number as printed on service tag and tell me when the appliance had been purchased, also tell me the country of purchase.

Many thanks.
