OB Code and water leakage

I too have had the same OB code but also have water leaking out soaking the floor. Will this still be a case where we can inspect the pump and fix the problem ourselves?
I too had the Sears guy out and he said the pump needed replacing and also the outer wash plate(?). I don't see a problem with it and have looked at 3 other Calypso's and they all resemble mine. Hmmmm!
Thanks for any help you can provide.

This is joyce

This is probably the thing to do is to replace the pump, and yes you can replace the pump yourself if you are mecanically inclind, you can probably order the pump online if you need to and they will send to your house. you dont want the water to continue to leak onto your floor.

Why is my lg dishwasher leaking and not draining completly

Chances are that the water pump seal has deteriorated to the point where the water has leaked into the pump (and the floor) and caused problems with corrosion.
You might have had an E1 error code on the panel as well, if not, check out all the hoses for kinks etc then check the water pump condition for leakage. If it leaks, you will have to replace it as it is a sealed unit.

Water leaking onto floor of front passenger side of vehicle

Water on the floor indicates a heater core leak. You may also find a mist coming from the inside of the car when you run the heat and or AC. If this is the case, have your heater core checked out. Best of luck.

Samsung Fridge Freezer leaking water

hi August.
Cause: A blocked defrost drain is one of the most common causes of water leakage. This happens when food particles or other debris clogs up the drain hose, which can lead to ice buildup and, eventually, water leaking out of the freezer and refrigerator.
3 common refrigerator problems you can easily fix yourself

The freezer drain hose will drain the defrost water into a drip pan at the bottom of the freezer. When this pan becomes full, it will leak water onto the floor. This is a regular maintenance task whenever the freezer defrosts. Empty the drip pan during the defrost cycle.
How to Fix Water Leaking From the Bottom of Freezer

Why is my fridge leaking water on the floor? If the refrigerator is leaking water it's possible that the refrigerator has a clogged or freezing defrost drain. If the defrost drain freezes the defrost water will overflow the drain and drip down to the bottom of the compartment, If enough water accumulates in the bottom it can run out onto the floor.

Wet carpet under front Passenger seat

You have drain blockage in the condesor case itself. There is a small tube that will drain the condensor case, the big black plastic case that contains most of your a/c system inside the car. This case collects moisture and that must drain normally from the case drain to the outside of your car onto the ground.. If this drain is plugged, you will have leakage on to the floor. If the moisture is allowed to remain in the carpet, mildew will set in and then you will have to replace the carpet.

I'm also having trouble with the Elite Calypso as it seems many mnay people are, what can we all do, Sears won't do a thing without charging top dollar

After discovering the high cost professional repair, I accessed this website to determine whether the problem might be a quick fix. Thank you very much for your expert advice! Thanks to you, I saved hundreds of dollars.

Symptoms: Cycle halts with little/no draining, followed by error displays, especially "ob" and "ld". Occasional leakage of several cups of water.

Problem: Several underwires from various females' undergarmets had become lodged in the last drain compartment, just before water exits to the drain hose.

Solution: Once the clog/wires were removed, the machine functioned normally.

Process: First disconnect power and water supplies to the unit. Next, determine if someting is stuck in the drain hose or in the compartment that empties into it by removing the back panel. In my case, I could see wires and clogs of lint through the translucent yellow plastic of the bottom compartment.

To acces the clog, I drained most of the water by lowering the end of the drain hose as much as possible before disconnecting it, then sucked the rest up with a wet/dry vac when I removed the hose. Then I was able to pull the wires out through the drain holes (it was necessary to disconnect the other three hoses from that compartment) using a coat hanger bent and twisted appropriately.

Total time for a "handy" amateur that had never worked on a major appliance before: 1-2 hours. $ saved on a repair housecall: $200-300
