There is definately some issue with the Power Supply on those two power socket..... call any electrician and ask him to check the voltage on both of your socket(socket of washer and dryer) with he help of Multimeter..

Try first unplugging the appliance for ten minutes.

If this does not fix the problem, try with the clear/cancel/exit button.

If still no luck , and there is no error code flashing, then the timer board may have been damaged by the power surge.

Is it safe to use a 3 prong dryer cord on my 2004 Kenmore Calypso dryer? I moved to an older home with a 3prong outlet.

It is safe as long as it is wired correctly. The following link explains the differences between 3 and 4 prong configurations:

Just make sure to match the corresponsing wire colors at the terminal block in the back of the dryer:

RED - HOT (120 VAC)
GREEN - Ground

In a 3 wire configuration the Neutral (White) and Ground (Green) wires are terminated together at the terminal block.

NOTE: If the wires are not color coded, the outer two wires (left and right) are the HOT leads. The center conductor is Neutral.

The other alternative is to have an electrician install a 4-wire receptacle in your home.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

We went camping for 2 days came home and the calypso washing machine won't start. We ran a load the day we left with no problems. The outlet works fine, we even tried plugging it into another outlet just...

The same happened with my Sears Calypso machine. The common problem is the front display panel. If you are able to find one at a very good price, post it here.

Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP button on the back (it manually turns the LCD screen on and off to save batteries). Turn the camera on and press the DISP button once. Hopefully that should fix it.
