Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

2 Answers

28 comes up in the window. I can press buttons and the thing beeps, but comes back 28 (goes blank when I push cancel). I took out the controller board. Nothing obvious wrong. Put it back in and it worked for a few seconds! I could hit "Normal" and 48 came up in the window as usual (time for Normal wash with the the other settings and options). Then after a few more seconds it went to 28 again. I don't see in the manual that 28 is in any way a diagnostic code or anything like that. Other codes are like SP, FL etc - two letter codes. I'm giving this service a shot, but frankly a response like "replace the controller board" is just as acceptable as 'call the repairman'. I hope you can seriously help!

    What do you mean "reconfigured to no avail"?



    I know there is a newer replacement board, missing one of the connectors.



    So the history of this board is that they die and lock up with funny codes in the window? You're sure it's not a diagnostic code from the board?

If it simply says 28 - the control board/timer has failed.
All sensor errors have a letter in front of the number.

CLICK HERE for a replacement board.

Since the problem is in the Timer Logic - there will be no visual evidence of failure - it is a computer chip.
Most of these problems are caused by an extremely unbalanced load causing vibrations which damage the chip.

There is no other fix or bandaid to get your machine operational. The board must be replaced.

Thanks for using FixYa :D

    this particular brand is notorious for this. the actual control boards were reconfigured to no avail.

    Unfortunately, you will need to replace this failed control

First you have to find the error code.
So! To recall an error code,

Wake the machine by pressing any button

Wait 5 seconds
Press and hold the Start and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously

Ail LEDs will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LEDs. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause Cancel buttons are pressed.
A two-second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes.

As long as the buttons are held, the failure code will appear in the display as an E followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters, please post back with the error code for further assistance.

Kenmore elite calypso doesn't respond to buttons except cancel


I've had a similiar problem on my calypso. In my case the key pad would go dead after washing or pushing stop after a few minutes. If I unpluged the unit for a few minutes it would work again. This would appear to be in the controller board. I removed the board and inspected it finding no problems. After re-installing the board the washer appears to be working again. My conclusion is that there is a loose connector/connection. I'd suggest you remove and re-install all the connectors on the controller board. This is the board closest to the power chord.

Good Luck, George S.

When i turn my ps3 on nuthin would show up on the tv. You can't even hear anything on the tv...it's just blank. Someone please help me..!!!!!!!!


Alright mate, Try these steps...
1. turn on the ps3 so it is in stanby i.e. the red light is on. 2. push and hold down on the red button for as long as it takes to turn the ps3 back off on to standby, you should hear a beep. 3. when it goes back to standby do the same thing again, and this time you will hear one beep (when you pressed it) and two more beeps and it will go back to standby 4. when it is back in standby again, push and hold down the button again, you'll hear the first beep, then three more beeps, and it will go back to standby. 5. do the same again, however when it turns on this time, if done correctly, it should say connect the controller using a usb cable. do this and turn it on. 6. Go through everything it says on screen, 6 options should eventually appear, for me, option 4 did the trick, but i heard option 3 works too, as the other ones do too i presume. 7. the final part is that it will ask you to restore the hard drive etc... just keep pressing the ok button.
if all fails, then phone this number (sony) 0818 365 065. glad to help. let me know.... David.

My washer won't turn on. It just beeps when i


Hi, this is a main control panel issue. here is a procedure you can preform to gain control back.

Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select
DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START.

If the problem persist, you will have to have the control panel repaired by the service tech.
