Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Calypso Model #110.2262101 Serial #CL3602829

This washer fills but when it starts to agitate it shuts off and reads CL. The washer repair place has replaced the water pump, drive motor and motor control board. They are at a loss and I am out several hundred dollars so far. Isn't this probably a mechanical problem like too much resistance in the tub rotation? Thanks, Sherm My Calypso washer also had a CI error. I got a level out and tried to make sure it was level and noticed one of the back legs was missing. I found it in the pump box that was repaired almost 2 years ago. When I reinserted the footing, I leveled it. When I started the machine, I would get an OB instead of CI. Then, I would redistribute the clothes and my machine worked - for 5 loads - then would resort back to the CI error code. I called Sears and they sent out a tech who told me it would cost $535, for which I declined the fix. Looking at these boards and posts, I've taken my machine apart, down to the U-Joint. When I first lifted off the control panel, I found the left wire on 2nd or 3rd "silo" on the left side, coming off. I reattached it and continued to dismantle the machine. I've found tons of lint, some in the pump housing and throughout the washer. I've cleaned everything off and am about to reassemble it but now wonder if I need a U-Joint and seal kit. I see more lint in the outer plastic washer housing that may also contain more debris after I remove the U-Joint - which has a lot of lime/scale sign on it. Help, I've been without a washer for a month now...thanks in advance for anyone who may help me out on this one....kk

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.



The OB indicates and out of balance condition has been detected by the motor control.
One thing about the OB error is that the lid must be opened to clear the error and allow the washer to advance to the next part of the cycle. If the lid is not opened to adjust the clothes then the OB error will happen again.

If the OB error was cleared and the OB occurs with an empty load then the motor control has failed.

The drain pump must work. The image below shows how to run a diagnostic test to check the drain pump. Follow the instructions in the image below and check the drain pump operation. If the pump runs and the water does not drain then the sump is clogged. If the pump hums but does not run then the pump needs to be replaced.

Kenmore calypso model 11022082101 Machine operates normal till a small amount of water in then fails to agitate at all. Does nothing and LED reads normal.


sounds like a lid switch is bad. If you can open the top of the washer cabinet and find the door switch should have two wires disconnect wires from door switch and hold wires togetherand wrap with electrical tape then try the washer. If it starts agitating, this will tell you if its the switch

I had the same problem, it turned out to be the "U-Joint", which was a fairly easy repair. The part comes as a kit, (It is probably very common), the cost I got from Sears was $112. With tax and a $44 overnight delivery charge, my total was $170. And while I had it apart, I also cleaned all the gunk out.

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.
