Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
replacing the nunater (wash plate) may help. Especially, if the rubber around the edge is starting to crack or curl, creating areas where clothing can catch. This is a known problem with the Calypso. As I was instructed, the problem was attributed to an excessive nunator time at the end of the wash cycle. Such a vacuum was being generated that it was pulling clothing into the edges of the nunator, leaving rubber marks and/or clothes becoming lodged.
First, make sure that you are not overloading the washer. This will cause garments to be caught and trapped underneath the washplate.
In this washer, small items are recommended to be washed inside a mesh garment bag.Check the seal around the outside of the washplate. Look for damage or gaps in the seal. If you find damage to this seal, the wash plate will need to be replaced. To replace this wash plate:
To check for this problem, push down on the outside of the wash plate in several places. This will cause the wash plate to tilt to it's maximum position. Check for gaps between the wash plate and tub. If you find gaps, this is probably causing your problem.
Replacing the universal joint in this washer is a complicated procedure. You will need a technician to complete this repair. (Note: Replacing the washplate is recommended when replacing the universal joint.)
Replacing the OUTER WASH PLATE may fix your problem. The outer plastic 'seal' or rim of the washplate should be touching the inner surface of the stainless steel wash basket. So it catches clothes. I just installed a u-joint kit today, so needless to say, I got out the washplate and retrieved my clothes on the way to replacing the u-joint. It involves leaning up the upper lid and cover, removing the tub ring and balance ring and the dome. Then there are 6 bolts to remove the outer wash plate to get to your clothes underneath. Might as well replace the washplate while you are at it. to download the manual, copy this https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/2c1e295a88aaaae885256c5d004632a4/$FILE/8178010.pdf
