Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

Open Question

Washer turns on by itself. (Once in the middle of the night)

Whirlpool calypson washer turned on in the middle of the night (2:30 a.m.) woke us up with all the beeping. Push to start and nothing happens. Cannot change to different cycle - nothing works! I have similar prolem with my Calypso Washer. It is 6 year old. One day morning we were listening a beep in the house and found that the Calypso turned automatically and set to Wool cycle. We cancel the cycle but it turned back on. We unplug the washer and plug back it in and it came back beeping. So we start the cycle and it completed the cycle and after the cycle is complete it stops beeping. BUT after couple of days another morning it again start beeping. We cannot change the cycle. We just unplug the washer for now and will plug back it when we want to Laundry. But I have my doubts that we might need to call Whirlpool or mechanic if the washer just stop working. Does that any reset thing that we can try to fix this problem ?

SOURCE: Washer won't turn on

try running an extension cord to another outlet (another circuit breaker). ensure the cord is not too long (25 feet ok) and able to carry 15 to 20 amps (use 12 AWG cord).

SOURCE: Whirlpool Calypso - Will not start

We just experienced the same problem with the buttons! I just kept pushing all the buttons until it switched over-delicate cycle was actually the one that got it going-what a piece of work this machine is!

Hi, this is a main control panel issue. here is a procedure you can preform to gain control back.

Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select
DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START.

If the problem persist, you will have to have the control panel repaired by the service tech.

SOURCE: my washer is stuck on the wool cycle and won't wash,change cycles

I had the exact problem. I am not sure if this is the fix, but I unplugged the machine over a few hours, then plugged it back in. It stayed off for 20 seconds and then went back to the wool cycle. In frustration, I opened the lid while running my fingers over the cycle select buttons quickly back and forth two times, as I closed the lid, the display cleared and the machine returned to normal, so far anyway. It seemed as if some moisture had gotten in the controls somehow. It was a very humid day and I think that was the problem,after all. My machine is over ten years old, and the only other problem was a clogged drain pump. I used advice from this website to fix that, and saved 300 on repairs at least

The washer smells. I have run 3 Affresh tablets and a bleach cycle and have left the washer open all night. However, the washer still smells. What else do I need to do?

Hi, I once experienced a similar, bad smell problem with my washer. What it turned out to be was a small sock being stuck in the water discharge pipe. This stuck sock eventually began to mold and subsequently smell. Once removed, my problem went away. Also, you can try running your machine with vinager or bleach with NO clothes. This weill remove any lingering oder. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Will not stop agitating, timer will not advance

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.20922990

As you say, I'd also suspect that the timer is not advancing.

Is showing a flashing f09

Hello Sir, If the Washer is turning on itself then it is a CU Problem. It must be tripped or not functioning properly.
And about the F09 error. This error comes when the washer has a water overflow. This can be removed by tilting the Machine forward by making a point opened so that the excess water flows out. This overflow is caused when the water is blocked by any other object. This overflow is surely corroding the CU and making the machine to turn on by itself.
Kindly call a technician from Whirlpool to get the internal parts checked.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Dishwasher will not turn on. Last night I started

You need to measure with a voltmeter for 115 Volts at the electrical box under the washer front. Breakers can fail, yet look ok. This will check the breaker output and all of the wiring in between. There may also be a local circuit breaker that tripped.

Whirlpool Top loader

Open the lid and the model and serial tag is on the washer itself in the middle under lid in back. Open lid and look at area where lid and washer top come together between hinges.

Starting by itself

Time for a service call. Should not turn on by itself at any cause. Circuit board is my guess. May be cheaper/easier to get new microwave. My first one lasted about 15 yrs--and the circuit board (touchpad) died. Bought new microwave oven.
