Error code CI

I have a Kenmore Elite Calypso top loader that worked fine. Then, a new load went in and the machine made draining sounds for 10 seconds and flashed CI. What does this mean and how can I make the machine work again? Thanks, bv

The ?Cl? fault indicates that there was an instantaneous current spike of 26 amps at the motor windings in the washer. This could be caused by overloading the washer. It can also be caused by problems with the drive motor, thermal protector or the motor controller.You should have been able to clear the display by pressing the STOP/CANCEL button.
If you try running the washer again and continue to get this fault code even with a small or medium load, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the washer.

Kenmore elite calypso model 22086102 will not clean clothes.Detergent is same. Getting a CI error code continuously. Have had techs twice to check it out and both times they say it is fine. Any tips?...


The owners manual says

"CA" or "Cl" (Current Limit)
Is the washer overloaded?
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Does it automatically do this when you start a load? Any further info you could give me would be helpful.
I hope this helps.

more than likely the machine has a bad clutch or motor.. in most cases it is cheaper to just buy another top loader.

Kenmore Elite Calypso won't drain


CL or CA is an over amp draw most likely caused by the motor thermal protector or motor controller It can be caused by too large of a load try to press "STOP/CANCEL" to clear if the problem returns you will need to get inside the unit

Kenmore Elite Calypso won't drain


The most likely thing to cause the code and the leak is the water pump. If the shaft seal on the pump leaks, the water gets into the drain pump motor and shorts it out. The code is telling you there is a high current/amp draw at one of the motors.
You can see if the pump is leaking by tilting the machine back, removing the screws that hold the bottom to the front edge of the machine and looking at the pump. If the pump is leaking, you will need a new pump and possibly a new motor control board.
Post back if you need further instructions and we will walk through the repair.
