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.

First check the lid switch. Its a little slot inside the top panel and when the door is closed it has a prong that pushes the switch down when closed. It is a safety feature. If you can find this press the slot with a screwdriver or something and listen for a clicking sound.It is also possible that one of the wires has come off, so that may need to be looked at too. Also check the lid to see if the prong has been broken off. If you have both of these things checking good, then it may be a more complicated issue like power to the wig wag coils, or a timer. We can however eliminate the motor, belt and water pump as these all work. I would put my money on a simple lid switch problem though.

If it goes through the complete cycle o.k. except for the slow spin then the motor itself needs to be checked.

SOURCE: Kenmore Calypso washer Ld code?

I just had the same problem. I borrowed my neighbors wet vac. The hose of the wet vac fit right over the end of the drain hose and I sucked out all the remaining water. My hope was that if the hose was clogged that it would clear it out. It seems that it worked. I put the drain hose back in the drain and turned on the extended spin cycle. It was working, so I put the water logged clothes back in the washer on the extended spin cycle and it took the water out. I am now in the process of washing another load to see if it really fixed the problem. I hope this helps.

Kenmore Elite HE4T washing machine diagnostic test not completing - getting stuck on C05


http://www.managemylife.com/images/6975/original/346.jpg?1303498921
According to this it could be either the Computer (don't think so but don't rule it out just yet.), the fill valve, or the heater. Appliance Repair Forums
This link will help you test the fill valves.
This will link you to a service manual for the HE3T washer which is very similar to yours and the diagnostics and tests will be the same. https://www.ifixit.com/Document/1074/.pdf

Whirlpool Calypso Washer Mdl#30942 gets stuck during rinse cycle. Machine runs, then stops, but does not rinse completely. Last 35-38 min cycle is problematic. What is wrong and how to fix it?


It's hard to tell by your description of the problem, but it sounds like it could be the timer If it's not running while in spin mode, or as simple as a belt if it's running and not spinning fast enough.

Unplug your machine for 5 min then turn on spin to remove water. If water won't go you have a bad water pump. Code FL refers to a low water flow problem ( won't fill fast enough ) or old water still in tub.
Next you need to turn off the water ot the unit and remove the water lines. Look into the water inlets on the washer to see if the dirt screens are clogged and not letting water into you unit at a fast enough pace.
Your unit has a water level sensor and should agitate when full, but I believe your machine might be "timing out" i.e. not filling as fast as your unit expects so even though it doesn't fill all the way it begins agitating because it has taken too long to fill. Good Luck!
