Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
You have a flood code. I am on pump # 3 with my 6 year old Calypso.Fibers and lint get tangled in the pump causing failure. You must replace both motor and pump now sold as a one piece unit. Part # 285990. Go to Appliancepartsoutlet.com for $88.95. Everyone else is $109 for same part. You have to access from underneath the machine. Move away from the wall far enough so you can tip the machine to rest on the wall and steady it with some blocks of wood so it doesn't fall on you while you are underneath it. Drop the bottom plate to the see area you'll have to work on. Drain the machine by unclamping the two pressure clamps attatched to the pump and be ready to collect about 3-4 gallons of water in a shallow pan. A wet vacuum , rags , and a helper won't hurt. Drop motor by removing 3 screws and unhooking the electrical harness clamp. Install new part and reconnect everything and your good to go.

There is an emergency access cord provided for the manual unlocking of the washer door and can be accessed by removing the dispenser bezel. Open the dispenser cover and remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off. Once the bezel is removed, look for the nylon cord near the door lock assembly through the opening left by the dispenser bezel. Pull the cord away from the door lock assembly to pivot the mechanical opener and push the locking lever into the open position. Open and close the door several times then start a new cycle.
Check the door lock assembly if the problem persists and replace it when necessary. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.
Access to the door lock assembly requires the removal of the front panel, dispenser bezel, and lifting of the top cover.
Open the dispenser cover and remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off.
Open the washer door and remove the two screws securing the door hinge and the front panel to the front shroud assembly. Do the same to the two screws on the opposite side of the door opening.
Disengage the front panel posts from the clips located on the face of the cabinet by grasping the upper part of the front panel posts and pressing in on the outer edges then twisting it inward. Once the front panel posts are released from the cabinet, tilt the front panel away from the cabinet and remove it.
Remove the two 5/16" hex-head screws securing the two top cover hold down brackets; one on each side. Swing the brackets to the outside to unhook it from the lip of the top cover then lift the top cover to expose the door lock assembly. Prop up the top cover to prevent it from falling back into position while accessing the door lock assembly.
Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the door lock assembly and the two mounting screws then rock the top of the assembly forward and lift it off the front shroud assembly.
Clean the wiring terminals and the connectors then reseat the connectors several times. Replace the door lock assembly when the problem is not resolved.
Install the new door lock assembly in reverse of the steps given above. Review the steps thoroughly for easy reassembly of the washer. Make sure the wiring harnesses are properly and firmly seated to the door lock assembly terminals. The door lock assembly is part number 22004435.
