Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water splash sheild ineffective

The washer splashes water out from under the splash shield during each use. It is rusting the left side of the unit and collecting on the floor. Has whirlpool devised a solution to fixing this problem with a redesigned shield, or is there a way to stop this problem?

Re: Water splash sheild ineffective

My machine may be a different model, but seems to have similar problems. I resolved this by: a) making sure the splash shield is fastened correctly at all points round the tub (it worked loose) b) as a temporary fix reversed the foam gasket inside the splashshield until I get a new one

Water collecting under the machine during a wash which is not due to a leak

I had one that would spin water over the top of the drum during the wash cycle once, even with low water level. There are actually brake shoes/pads that add resistance, so the agitate won't over spin before it changes direction. I don't remember them being too difficult to install.

Leaking water on spincycle

I have the same problem with my washer. The problem just began a few weeks ago. It is splashing out the front left corner of the tub and running down the inside of washer and then leaking out the bottom of the frame. It is just enough water to be annoying. The washer is about 6 years old.
Model: FAV6800AWW
Serial: 11277017EG

Any ideas??? Help!

During the rinse and spin cycle, water is sprayed everwhere

There may be too much water and not enough clothes in the washer. If that is the case the water rises up the side of the tub when spinning and overflows the inner tub. Usually it goes into the outer tub but it can spurt out through bleach dispenser and run down the inside of the cabinet or hit the lid and splash out. Set water level (Xsmall, small, medium, large, Xlarge) appropriate for amount of clothes.

Water is coming out from under my machine during spin cycle. LOTS of water. I'm going to check my drain hose, but wonder if I need to take off the front of the washer?

No, you do not need to take off the front of the washer. This usually means a drain hose or the drain itself is clogged up or backed up. When the tub spins the water will naturally go over the top of the tub and splash out.

Hi, just fixed the daughters speed queen, same problem. The three brake shoes were worn allowing the tub to spin with the agitator.

Water on floor under washer

re; water under washer.
The ammount of water is from 1/4 to 1 cup after an individual load. It only became noticable reciently, after the last 3 or 4 heavy loads, using the manual setting on next to the top level. There is an automatic function, but due to the dirt and grit in the jeans I use manual.

Amana washer model# LW8203L2 leaks from bottom when spinning.

During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

Most top loaders are not water tight. They are splash resistant. I'm guessing that your water level is too high or you are loading your clothing into a machine that is already full of water raising the water level excessively.

If you allow your machine to fill with no clothes for test purposes, you should see a level about 3 inches below the top of the agitator. If it is higher than that, I suggest that you investigate why or use a lower water setting.

Whirlpool washer leak

Regarding those Cabrio washers that are leaking, while I own the WTW6600 model and have never experienced any leaking, I was told by the service repairman who came out yesterday that there was a flash bulletin sent out by Whirlpool that the fix is in the form of a new inner plastic section. I don't know the technical terms but I saw the bulletin on his computer screen. He mentioned that some people had reported that water was on the left side front of the floor and was being caused by when the water flows through the top section where you pour the liquid detergent, on some models, the water would splash over. He was able to show me the redesigned piece that was being put in to replace those that have the problem. If you are experiencing a problem with water leaking from the unit, and it appears to be in the front, left side area, this could be something covered under that service bulletin.
