Check the drain pump and any associated hoses to and from the pump. There may be a blockage, restriction or the drain pump could be jammed or seized.

Unscrew the pump, there is probably objects in the pump, I get that error every month or so, I find coins in my pump all the time, if too much stuff gets in there the code F21 or sometimes SD comes up.

This has happened to me twice. Both times I found the drain pump seized up with
1st time) The right rim from a pair of reading glasses
2nd time) A plastic toothpick
Both times the object was in the discharge port of the pump. You can see this by lifting the check valve with the pump removed. Removing the pump is simple. Unplug the washer. You have to remove the drain line from where its attached to the rear of the machine (one screw) to remove the rear access panel which slides into upper and lower slots. You will see the pump with an inlet and discharge line attached. The lines have simple squeeze clamps. When you remove the lines, you will drain the wash basin so have towels and a squeegie handy. Remove both lines and wait until the basin drains. When it stops draining remove the pumps electrical connector by squeezing the release catch on it while pulling it. The connector can only go on one way. Remove the 3 hold-down bolts on the pump baseplate. Remove the pump and lift open the discharge check valve and you'll find something there I guarantee it. Remove with needle nose pliers and re-assemble in reverse order.
This is actually a good design because the computer protects the pump by sensing a higher than normal current draw when foreign debris gets jammed in it. It will trigger the ND (No Drain) code and sometimes lock the door. Always check this first before you call the expensive repair man. If its not a jammed pump it will most likely be the control panel/processor. Good luck and always clean out pockets before loading the washer to prevent this,

SOURCE: CA error code on Calypso Washer
CA Cl Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limit If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and display either CA for average current limit trip or Cl for instantaneous current limit trip.
Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current draw greater than 5.55 amps at the motor windings.
Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps instantly at the motor windings.
This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem.
Meaning you had stuffed it full one time and then it was hard on the motor, you will have to change the drive motor most likely...

Well, you're not gonna like this, but here's the deal.
Remove the three screws on the rear of the control panel and lift it up. Disconnect the rubber hose on the right side of the gray control module and blow through it to make sure it is clear and not kinked. If this check is fine then your control module needs replaced.
Note that Maytag knows this is a fairly common problem. My washer failed 9 months out of warranty with this problem.
The only good news is that it is an easy, though expensive, replacement.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello agusta_bjarn - Are you certain the error code is C03? Could it possibly be E03? If so, typically error code E03 indicates that there is a failure with either the wash motor or motor hall sensor. I suggest checking for suds in the tub and siphoning. A further diagnoses is recommended to have a professional check the wiring between motor and main control board since either part could need replacing.
