Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
I bought the house with this machine in it, so have no documentation. I have a number of pets with lots of bedding, therefore, lots of hair to accumulate during washing. I'm concerned about a filter clogging somewhere. Is this a valid concern, and if so what do I need to do to rectify it? Thanks. lint trap needs cleaning and i can't find it
Hi, These do not have filter that can be cleaned or changed. If you notice water draining slow at any time, you will need to open up the pump (not hard to do) and clean out any lint.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

A while ago, Whirlpool changed the pump design. If you have the old style pump, it is very difficult to clean lint and dog hair if the pump is clogged (try a bent wire). I had this happen several times. I replaced the pump impeller mechanism, a non-servicable molded plastic part, a couple times, then replaced the whole pump. The new pump can be disassembled unlike the original one. However, this clogs just as easily, but it is "easier" to clean out. You'll need to tilt the machine back at about 45 degrees (against a wall), sponge out the water from the tub, remove the bottom panel, Disconnect the two hoses, one white and one black, drop the bottom off the pump and clean it. Use a large sheet cake pan to catch the water because there isn't much room under the machine unless you lay it down, then you can have water running out the top. Reassemble and you should be good to go.
