Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool Calypso runs for 40 seconds and stops.

Machine starts to fill with water and then stops filling and motor stops after 35-45 seconds. All the lights on the panel remain on and no error messages appear. Sometimes it doesn't even start the cycle at all. All you hear is a humming noise. There is no water filling at this point. The
red lights are on but no water or aggitation.

I checked the hot and cold water supply and there are no clogs
at either end of the hose. Screens are clean. Is it possible that there could be a clog somewhere else?. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Machine fills w/water quits flashes lb? lz?


There is a water pressure switch that operates when the required water fills in the tub. this pressure switch in your machine is possibly faulty. In ur case the water keeps filling then it detects an error and stops that's when the lights start flashing. the pressure switch fails to detect the amount of water in the drum and so the machine doesn't move on to the next cycle

Why won't the washing machine fill with water when i press start


I would look at the water inlet valve solenoids. Also, make sure that the protective screens are clean and open in the inlet valve. Hope this helps you and best wishes.

Washer Stops/Starts when filling with water


Looks like part 8571359 the control electronics is out and guess what? Can only get through Sears and Whirlpool. This is why you cant get an error code, it isnt working well enough to choke one out. You know this is hard to say but a Oasis has its issues but at least it is still on market. I would if hubby is handy to find a used machine and pull the part. It is a chance but cheaper than 500 bucks to have a tech come out and fix.

Kenmore Elite Calypso Wash Motion


Basically its saying that the motor is pulling very high amperes. This could signify a faulty motor, motor controller, or thermal protector, or there could be a mechanical bind in the transmission. i would use a amprobe and check to see how much power is being pulled when the machine starts, and as it is operating if it is 5.55 amps or greater and higher than 20 amps on motor start surge, than the motor controller is correct in saying there is a problem. ------Dont forget to rate my help!!!!!! thanks

Calypso - water goes straight to drain hose-not drum


the hose may still be filled from last cycle. try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.

Will not Fill


BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THOSE TWO ITEMS THAT WERE REPLACED SHOULD HAVE RECTIFIED THE PROBLEM.ONE NEEDS TO KNOW IF THE BOARD THAT IT WAS TESTED WAS IN EFFECT A NEW ONE OR NOT. IF IT WAS I WOULD SUGGEST DISCONNECTING ONE HEATER WIRE (IF HEATER IS USED) THEN PULLING THE PR.SWITCH PIPE OFF FROM THE TUB AND SUCKING A VACUME ON THE PIPE. THIS WILL INDICATE A LOW LEVEL CONDITION AND ASK FOR MORE WATER.IF FILLING TIME IS THEN RUNS FOR A LONGER PERIOD, THEN THE PROBLEM IS WITH A DEFECTIVE PR.SWITCH. HOPE I HELPED?

Starts to fill and then stops, and the cycle continues on.


Jmars, under the consol there is two pressure switches. One controls the fill and the other is back-up incase the other fails. It sounds like your water pressure switch is tripping too soon. Try putting the washer into a self test mode by pressing in this order soak--soil level---soak--soil level. The machine should enter a test mode. Let it run it's test and see if you come up with any error codes. The pressure switch is the one on the left under the consol. It will be marked OPR, the part number is 8054766. The consol will lift up by using a putty knife under each end, pushin on the clips and lifting up. The back panel of the consol is removable. Catriver..post back
