Re: no power on washer panel
HI, this control panel may have been seriously damage due to the abnormal water drain. i would check the wire harnesses to make sure they are not corroded on the back of the control circuit board. check the entire wiring harness for worn or lose connector clips and couplers as well.
Remove the pin connetors(wire clips) from the rear of the control circuit board and clean them. reattached the clips the appropriate cooper connectors and do the same with the motor and switches as well.
After this wiring harness inspection, try to run a cycle. if the power is still non existing, this will confirm a control board short/failure and, you will have to replace this device.

an LD code indicates a long drain was detected by the control.check for a kink in the drain hose. the most common reason for this code is something caught in the pump. many times a piece of clothing(small sock,shoe lace or string from a sweatshirt etc..) gets stuck and restricts the water flow to the drain...the pump can be removed by tipping the washer forward approx 45 degrees(use something to prop the washer up so it doesnt fall all the way to the floor)then remove the back panel. the pump will be gray &have 2 hoses. calypsos used 2 styles of pump . one was integrated into the pump motor and the other was attached to the pump motor with 2 springclips.remove the clamps on the hoses and see if you can see whats caught inside..if the foreign object is wrapped up in the pump too tightly you will have to replace the pump..if you have to replace the pump and it comes as part of a new motor.,the front panel will have to come off to unplug the pump motor and plug in the new one. there is a space at the top of the front panel where it meets the lid, use a putty knife to release 2 clips so you can lift the lid up. you will see several screws along the top.remove them and the front panel will come off . you wil be able to see where the pumpmotor plugs in. . you will have to work in front and behind the washer. always unplug the washer before doing any work on your appliance. hope this helps get you back up and running...
The washer filled with too much water, causing a switch to trip. Then everything stops. It tries to drain during FL but if it can't drain, the washer powers down.Choose Drain & Spin to let the washer drain. Then you have to take the washer apart. Fix the problem. I personally can't tell you what to do because I don't own a Calypso.
High Water Flow
Check the water pump for physical damage from the move. If the washer was laid on it's side, you may have either snapped off the pump outlet or broke the pump body. You may have broekn the body of the water inlet valve fill flume. A visual examination should provide a lot of insight as to what the problem is.
Oh the dreaded calypso pump...Seen that one a million times. Pumps get clogged pretty easily. Try to get the water out manually first. Than push the washer back and lean it against the wall so that you can access the bottom. Remove the 3 screws. Bottom panel should come off. The pump is on the right, its black. Get ready with a shop vac or alot of towels, theres gonna be a flood. There are 2 clamps on black hoses that need to be taken off so that you can slide the hoses off the pump. Next remove the 3 bolts that hold the pump in place. Next lower the pump out of the hole it sits in. Youll have to follow the wiring harness up and disconnect it. Now you can try and clen out the pump or replace it. Part # is 285990. Costs about 75.00. Hope that helps. Let me know if yiu need more help. Dave www.washermd.com
Model nums are fine in the store, if it is an oasis or calypso make sure drain hose is not in drain more than 5 inches. If not your pump might be going out or is clogged. A great cleaner developed is called washer magic and it will help the smell with some elbow grease. If not and is a traditional top load check motor and gearcase or even the timer for wear in a old machine.
have you tried just leaning the washer back ?? if that is not a calypso the bottom is card board and just pulls down pump is on front end of motor 2 clips 2 hose clamps ..if calypso remove screws in bottom pump back right corner as far back as i can remember all full size top load kenmore washer pumps were accesible from bottom that's 35 yrs by the way
WP HAS HAD A ON GOING ISSUE WITH THIS THAT IS THE REASON WHY THEY REDIGNED THE DRAIN PUMP. YOU NEED TO 1ST DRAIN OUT AS MUCH WATER MANUALLY AS YOU CAN THEN DISCONNECT ALL YOUR HOSES FROM WALL TAKE THE WM OUTSIDE TO DRAIN THE OTHER 3 GALLONS OF WATER YOU CANNOT SEE. TURN THE MACHINE ON ITS BACK THEN USING A 5/16 NUT DRIVER REMOVE 4 SCREWS ON THE BOTTOM PANEL. REMOVE PANEL AND YOUR DRAIN MTR IN ASSESSIBLE. THE PART CAN BE ORDERED AT WWW.REPAIRCLINIC.COM
Usually "FL" means one of two problems, both with the drain system. The good news is that both are relatively easy to fix yourself. "LD" can also be fixed by doing the following as well.
First, get the washer somewhere outside, in a garage or basement where you can afford to have large amounts of water spill out onto the ground. It may be easier to dismantle the inside of the basin and get as much of the water shop-vac'd out before you move it. Once it's outside, open up the back panel, and on the bottom left you will see a large black hose with clips on either end. Take the clip that attaches the hose to the bottom of the tub off and all the left over water will spill out. Turn it on it's face now, take the bottom panel off, and remove each of the clips on the hoses (drain hose to) and make sure nothing is blocking any of the lines. If it is, then remove it and this MIGHT fix your problem.
The other option (if the previous doesn't work) is to replace your pump motor, because odds are it has gone bad. The Calypso washers are notorious for having drain issues, and there was even a class action lawsuit a few years back that would have likely allowed you to get the washer fixed for free. If you do need to get a new drain pump motor, they go for anywhere between $80-100 and are a breeze to switch out. Hope this helps.
the hose may still be filled from last cycle.
try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
