The C1 code indicates the "instantaneous current limit" trip. This signifies problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, motor controller. Overloading the machine will cause high amps and trip the unit. Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a current spike of 26 amps instantly at the motor windings in which the motor overload trips. check bearings for lubrication - or as stated above overloading the washer.

Kenmore elite calupso washer starts and runs for 2 min then stops then starts then stops and C1 flashes


The CI and CA error codes indicate that current (amp draw) limits for the drive motor were exceeded. Since you indicate that these codes were displayed even though the washer is not overloaded, it is likely that you have a problem with the motor, motor controller or the universal joint. An item stuck underneath the nutate plate or between the spin basket and the outer tube of the washer could also cause this problem.

Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer: when washing a C1 code appears...


The C1 error is displayed when the motor tries to pull more than 26 amps to run.

This indicates a problem with the motor or motor controller.

Overloading or excessive suds can also cause this error.

If you like to make a few more checks then the image below contains the instructions for entering the diagnostic test mode.

Its a short cycle that runs all of the components so the operation of each can be checked.

I hope this helps but an intermittent C1 error can be hard to pin down.

From the service manual....

"C1 = Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limit.

If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current
limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and
display either CA for average current limit trip or Cl for
instantaneous current limit trip.

Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current
draw greater than 5.55 amps
at the motor windings.

Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps
instantly at the motor windings.

This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or
motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem."

My kenmore elite calypso has a flashing code C1. What does this mean. Also, how can i get a manual for this washer, that explains all the codes.


C1 is not one of the normal codes. It's probably CI (upper i).
Stands for 'Instantaneous current' limit trip. Happens when there is a spike of 26 Amps intensity at the motor windings.
The manual states it may be a problem with the drive motor, thermal protector or motor controller.

check here for your stuff. make sure you put your exact model number in the box at the top. i used my machine (GVW9959KL1). absolutely awesome website and has very competitive prices, if not the best prices for parts. hope this helps.

C1 Fault


code CL.(C1) This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem. Calypo washers do have a history of break downs within the drive system.
