Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
Well, the problem has been going on for about 2 days already. first, we put the clothes in. then, when choose heavy duty, put to tap cold/cold water, normal time. then we press start. the machine starts, washes for awhile than after five minutes it stops and displays the code CA and sometimes CI. i know what it means but how do i fix the problem???? please, any answers will be appreciated. thank you for your time.
Basically its saying that the motor is pulling very high amperes. This could signify a faulty motor, motor controller, or thermal protector, or there could be a mechanical bind in the transmission. i would use a amprobe and check to see how much power is being pulled when the machine starts, and as it is operating if it is 5.55 amps or greater and higher than 20 amps on motor start surge, than the motor controller is correct in saying there is a problem. ------Dont forget to rate my help!!!!!! thanks
