Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
The display shows 42 min. I can not get it to clear or start. It appears to be stuck and I'll bet you can help. I am up to my **** in laundry- sos
You can try unplugging it for at least two hours and then re-starting. Since I moved my washer starting acting up getting stuck at various points in a cycle--sometimes 19 minutes, or 12, or 33, or 3...no rhyme or reason, no specific point in the cycle. My mover is an appliance repair guy and told me to do the unplug thing and it has worked multiple times--not that I enjoy having this happen over and over, but he told me Sears would charge a minimum of 100 to show up at the door, and I don't have that right now. Anyhow, it has only worked if I left it alone at least 2 hours---my new strategy is going to be unplugging it daily...I love the washer but this is nutty.

Our Whirlpool washer is GVW9959KQ0, bought in September 2001,
in September 2010 it had the problem as follow.
When the panel was lite up, it was always set at "44" minute, NORMAL wash,
no touch area is responsive, not even STOP or START.
I could turn off the panel completely by pressing STOP and
"Whitest white" in sequence quickly.
When the panel was shut off, I could turn on the panel again
by just pressing "STOP"; But the panel was back again
to "44" minute, NORMAL wash. Unplugging the power did not help (see as follow).
That was the washer life for a couple weeks.
We left it w/o power for 24 hours, it worked again normally
just for 1 wash, and it was back again to the zombie mode;
left it again for 24 hours, no luck, left it again for 24 hours,
worked again for just one wash.
We managed to wash 3 loads during the 2-week period (just 1 wash per time).
Since the washing functionality sounds and looks working well to me,
I thought that the panel might be the culprit.
Finally we ordered Control Panel Assembly (Parts AP3884746,
it is just the panel part where we touch for washing selections
w/o electronic boards behind it) at appliancepartspros.com
(cost $177 regular S

Here is a list of errors for your machine.
I hope they help you.
SAMSUNG WASHING MACHINES, ERROR FUNCTIONS
When an error occurs, the alarm noise will sound and the error code displayed in the program window. Listed below is a series of error codes you may or may not see for your model of Samsng Washing Machine. The errors are shown as blinking in O.5 second intervals until the error status has cleared. In this case, all the driving devices are turned off until the error is cleared.
1. WATER SUPPLY ERROR - Display shows 4E.
Water Supply Error occurs when water level frequency does not show changes more than 100Hz or water is not supplied up to the preset water level after 10 Minutes or more at the time of initial water supply. The error status can be cleared by turning the POWER switch OFF and back ON.
2. WATER DRAIN ERROR - Display shows 5E.
5E is displayed if the water level frequency detected is 25 KHz or less in the initial phase of the UNB -detecting cycle. The Water Drain error can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.
3. OVER-FLOW ERROR - Display shows oE.
Over-Flow error occurs when the water level is too high. It can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF. Water is drained prior to POWER switch OFF. The tub is drained for 2 minutes if a frequency of more than 25 KHz is detected.
4. UNBALANCE ERROR - Display shows UE.
