Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
My machine starts to agitate and then stops, tries again and then goes to a code ob and stops
Well guys, I am working thru the same problems. No problems with it for the first 3 years then one day it flooded. An apparent pump failure. So I removed the old pump and ordered a new one on line. It changed out easily. Ran a test load tonight--half-way thru I got an "ob" error code. It was a small load but seemed to me that the drum never filled with as much water as I would have expected. Any thoughts?

Well Folks.....here is a solution....
The pump motor (which is accessible from underneath) has a part with 2 hoses. Unclip the hoses (be sure to have a large bucket), unclip the 2 retainer clips and take off the pump....There may be some stuff stuck inside there, like a baby sock, a small rag or other stuff.....Inspect the gear on top to make sure it's not stripped. If so, it should be replaced...BUT, the motor and the pump are sold as one unit...
Hope this helps.

The problem with this, is this could be a variety of things. The Calypso has a wonderment of problems like this. It could be anything from a u-joint/leveler system problem, to a wiring harness/control board issue, to a water level issue. Thats why these Calypso's are so very hard to determine fault. Just be sure that the machine is as level as it can be, and also be sure that the load is as balanced as it can be, no overloading. Good luck with this one, I hate to say. It may be a issue of getting a service tech there to run all the diagnostics on site (not to cheap to fix either). Sorry I couldnt be of further help with this one, just the Calypso (or as we used to call them Callapso's) are very difficult to say the least. Let me know if I can be of further help.
