Kenmore Calypso #110.2262101 SN-CL3602829 CI error code

Sorry about any confusion on my first post. I guess I got part of someone else's post to my problem.... 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 only CI. Then, I would redistribute the clothes and my machine worked - for 5 loads - then would resort back to the CI error code. When the tub would spin, it would shake really hard, hence the OB error. My clothes were so wet, and I finally shut off any water going to the tub for its final spin, which seemed to help a bit. It would do this several times before resorting to a final 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 debris, some in the pump housing and throughout the washer. I even found a little throwrug string clogging the small hole at the bottom of the recirculation tube. I also found gobs of lint, dog hair, and other debris getting stuck at the top of the recirculation tubing where water enters the tub when I'd remove the clothes to place into the dryer. I've cleaned everything off and am about to reassemble it but now wonder if I need a new U-Joint and seal kit. I see more debris in the outer plastic lining and have rubbed out lint from the holes in the washer tub side facing that plastic lining. There may be even more debris after I remove the U-Joint - which has a lot of lime/scale signs 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.

WASHER NOT WORKING CODE CI


This means Instantaneous current overload.

This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector or motor controller. Overloading the washing machine may cause this.

Kenmore elite calypso model 22086102 will not clean clothes.Detergent is same. Getting a CI error code continuously. Have had techs twice to check it out and both times they say it is fine. Any tips?...


The owners manual says

"CA" or "Cl" (Current Limit)
Is the washer overloaded?
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Does it automatically do this when you start a load? Any further info you could give me would be helpful.
I hope this helps.

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.

I have a whirlpool calypso washer and it is showing an error code of C1, what does this mean and how do I fix it


CI (an "i", not a "one") and OB are related - overloaded, the washer's motor controller will draw too much current and either the average current will peak ("CA" error) or the instantaneous current will spike ("CI" error). OB - out of balance - indicates of course a load that is not balanced, or is too heavy. Wash less items and see if the problems lessen. That is what we have had to start doing, but we still can wash a BUNCH of items in this type washer!
