Alarm which we do not have before. normal cycle. also on a rinse cycle. ocasionally loud banging noise.


You didn't mention if the machine was giving any error codes. Do the following steps to get any stored error codes and post them back to me.
Select the following on the operator console - DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). "C00" will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.

Whirlpool Calypso - replaced pump/motor, but still get incomplete spin cycle with 'ob' and 'sl' errors. Never gets up any speed during spin cycle. What else might this be?


So here's my solution... Remove the new pump/motor combo. Go to "Appliance Center" and pick out a nice new Maytag and have it delivered the next day. Have them haul the POS Calypso away and sell the new pump. Let me know it you need a new pump....

Whirlpool Calypso Cycle Problem


The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.

Calypso GVW9959K washer with OB code


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.

Whirlpool washer error code problem


LD is long drain associated with two problems the drain hose install and the pump. Debris in the pump and a drain hose inserted too far will cause most of these issues.

I would say to worry about it , if its flooding your house , need to open washer front panel ,start a new wash cycle and take a look to see where the water is leaking from , sounds like a broken hose under the tub that connects to the DRAIN MOTOR PUMP , AND BETTER have it fix right away cause if its getting to the main motor it could damage it , hope it helps AJ

Code LS=Lid Switch. I had the same problem and found that if you pressed down firmly on the lid when closing I would not get the LS code. An uneven load will sometimes cause enough vibration to the lid to stop the washer and display the LS code again. Just lift lid and press down firmly again and start. Eventually I will open it up and adjust the switch.
