Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
My calypso washer displays the OB code. I assume it means out of balance but when I fluff the clothes and restart it the cycle does not complete and the clothes still remain wet. The tub begins to spin and the cycle still displays OB. The tub is only about 1/4 full of clothes.
This is a common problem with the Calypso washers. The problem that you are having is related to the pump. There is something in the pump that is causing the error code to occur. Since the pump isn't working right all of the water isn't draining out thus causing it to be out of balance. If you can get down to the pump and check it out chances are you will find something in it. It might just be some fabric or string from clothing caught around the pump motor. Just make sure you clamp off the hoses or you will flood your laundry room. Once you clear out the pump unplug the washer and wait a few minutes before plugging it back in. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and glad I could help.

I had same problem exept Pump splines were stripped out. Tech told me it would be $250 to fix. I took pump off motor shaft leaving the hoses hooked up. Put a dab of 2 part epoxy in pump splines, put pump back on motor and waited 60 minutes. Works great and cost me 25 cents to fix.
