Kenmore elite calypso 110.22062102

Lately, our washing machine has been making louder than normal noise during the spin cycle. There is a knocking sound as if something is off balance. No codes on the display board and everything looks to be in order. This has been going on for about two to three weeks and it's getting louder (kind of BANG BANG BANG BANG). This is a Kenmore Elite Calypso top load washing machine.

SOURCE: Calypso kenmore elite - problems trying to wash a load

This is usually a symptom of a bad motor control board which located under the console. I had the same problem. You can open the console by removing the three screws in the back and lifting from the rear first. The console will pop off. In addition, if you look along washer top front edge in the seam there is a retaining clip about 2 inches in from each side. Using a putty knife, push in on each clip while lifting and the top should pop up. There will be a tech sheet affixed to the front wall of the washer between the wash tub and case. This tech sheet will give you all the guidance necessary on how to perform tests to prove whether or not the motor controller is at fault, or if the pump is at fault. I believe you may have a motor controller problem, though. Another possibility is getting something caught in the drain pump reservoir. This could binding the pump. Let me know if any of this is helpful to you.

SOURCE: Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle

Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.

SOURCE: We have a Kenmore Elite Calypso, it is not washing

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error code LD means Long Drain. It flashes when washer takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets.
Error code CA means Average current limit. This error code will display if the load of clothes is more then the normal load. Also if current limit breaches then status signal comes back from the motor controller. The unit will return to standby mode and display CA. Average current trip occurs if the current draw at the motor windings is greater than 5.55 amps in 2 seconds. This error occurs if there is a problem with the drive motor, thermal protector or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Hi

This issue can either be due to the suspension rings or due to motor issue. Please check this link for exploded diagram of your washer---

Also, check the stator motor and the retainer, make sure no parts are missing. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Kenmore Front Load Washer won't complete cycle F06


Have you cleaned your machine lately? They make an in wash boost- it gets rid of the extra suds built up inside the machine that you cant see but your machine detects it and causes faults such as that. Also, there is a small wire on the control board that may need replaced if it keeps kicking the error code.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HT makes loud noises during spin cycle.


The tub may be unbalanced and wobbling. This may be due to washing heavy items such as rugs, towels, etc. If it is noisy with regular laundry loads, the mechanism that supports the tub may be loose or broken.

The motor coupling is about to completly go out on you and then it will not spin at all. This is common on these machines. the repair should be under $100.00. The motor brake may also be dragging.

Our Kenmore Calypso 110.21082 is making a thumping sound in the wash cycle but not during the spin cycle. Seems to thump a little louder with every load. Any suggestions?


This washer has a very complex ujoint system that make the wash plate "nutate" as Whirlpool defines it. Something may be wrong with this system. I recommend having a pro do this job unless you have good mechanical prowess.
