Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
Ok so I do beleave that the washer is plugged how do I unplug it. do I simply take off the back and I will see it, I am going to try that now, but if you know exacteally how please tell me
I assume the machine is not draining. Most of the time the obstruction is in the pump itself. UNPLUG POWER CORD. THIS IS A MESSY REPAIR unless you can get the machine outside and drain the water. There are two different pump configurations on these machines. You will need to lean the machine back against the wall so you can remove the bottom panel to get to the pump. There are 3 screws holding it at front of machine. If your machine has the pump that is held on to the motor with 2 metal clips, you can remove the clips and hoses and remove pump. Look in pump inlet and outlet and see if you can see the restriction and remove it with needle nose pliers. Most of the time this type of pump is beyond help and must be replaced with the newer style. About $300 to have this done by professional. If you have the newer pump, it will be part of the motor. You can remove the hoses and three screws that hold housing to motor. Be sure you don't lose or damage rubber seal on housing. After you clean pump, clean and dry seal area and reinstall housing and hoses. It will usually seal back with no problem. You may have a restriction in sump of tub going to pump. Sometimes it can be cleaned from rear of machine, if not, the basket will have to be removed. Depending on age and condition of machine this can be simple or very expensive. If basket is frozen to basket drive, you can replace machine cheaper than replacing basket and drive.
