Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
My five year Calypso GVW9959KQ stopped working today. It has power, but it does not react to any buttons being pushed. The lights suggest it is stuck on the last cycle - Normal. When I push the Start and/or the Stop Cancel button nothing happens. It also will not change cycles if I press a different button. When I unplug - plug back in nothing chnages. Any suggestions? I hate the thought of calling a repair guy.
We just experienced the same problem with the buttons! I just kept pushing all the buttons until it switched over-delicate cycle was actually the one that got it going-what a piece of work this machine is!

You ever hear of dog years? Well Calypso follows those same guidelines. So your machine is 35 years old. These are the Edsel's of washing machine fame. I had a Calypso for 6 1/2 years. 3 pumps, numerous circuit boards, drive motors, phone calls and arguements with Whirlpool, along with machine downtime. I finally junked it and bought a Whirlpool Duet 9200 HT (get the made in Germany machine). A world of difference in wash quality. Fresh smelling unballed clean clothes. The Calypso was removed from the market and the subject of a class action lawsuit. Just Google it and start reading. Get comfortable first. There's a lot to read.
