Question about Washing Machines

After fixing a broken wire thermistor wire, my washer won't start a load after a previous load completes unless I unplug/replug the power cord. Everything works just fine otherwise.

SOURCE: CA error code on Calypso Washer

CA Cl Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limit If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and display either CA for average current limit trip or Cl for instantaneous current limit trip. Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current draw greater than 5.55 amps at the motor windings. Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps instantly at the motor windings. This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem.

Meaning you had stuffed it full one time and then it was hard on the motor, you will have to change the drive motor most likely...

SOURCE: Sears Calypso Washer purchased in 2004, displays

CA - Average Current peak - happens if there is a 2 second average of current draw greater than 5.55 amps at the motor windings. This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Overloading the unit may cause this problem. Try washing smaller loads and see if the problem goes away. If it recurs when you wash bigger loads, decrease the size AND watch to see if you have to continue to decrease the size to keep the error from happening. If that were occurring, it could well be a sign of the electrical problems noted, requiring service.

SOURCE: How much does a broken thermistor typically cost?

THAT THING RARELY GO BAD. CHECK THE CONNECTIONS ON IT FIRST. UNPLUG AND PLUG CONNECTOR IN FEW TIMES. WHILE YOU DOWN THERE, PULL IT OUT COMPLETELY AND SEE IF IT COVERED WITH SOAP SCUM, GUNK, ETC. THAT WILL GIVE YOU FALSE READINGS AND GIVE YOU AN ERROR CODE FOR THE THERMISTOR

SOURCE: my GE washer wbvh5300kww beeps at me when I hit start

I am also having this problem as well. Trying to seek (once again) a solution as having to plug/unplug the washer before each use is really annoying.
Can anyone tell me how to run the test mode for this washer? I don't see that detail anywhere in my manual. Thanks.

Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer dryer won't start


Hello - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and start normal cycle. If this proves to be ineffective, then contact a professional to move forward accurately. Possible causes could be a faulty power cord or house wiring, defective control board, thermal limiter or door switch.

MIne Whirlpool duet is having probloms please help me with it!


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
User Control and Display Board If the washer won't start, the user control and display board may be defective. Check for power to the washer first.

Timer If the washer won't start the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.

Line Fuse If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown.

Thermal Fuse If the washer won't start the thermal fuse may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing video for more information.

Line Fuse and Holder If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown, or the line fuse holder might be damaged and need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the washer won't start the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other parts and causes first.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't start the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't start the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Incoming Power Problem If the washer won't start check to see if there is power at the electrical outlet which the washer is plugged into. Plug a lamp or radio into the outlet to check it. If the outlet is dead, check the circuit breakers or fuses for the home.

Power Cord If the washer won't start, check to be sure there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.

I looked up your model number. You particular machine allows for wash with the lid open. You nothing happens. On that case I would check the motor capacitor.

How to fix the thermistor


The TE error code indicates a heating error, usually caused by a faulty thermistor. First, attempt to clear the error by unplugging the power cord, waiting for 10 seconds, restore the power, and restart the wash cycle. If the same problem happens again, close water tap, unplug the washer because the unit may require service.

Check in the next link the Service Manual for LG WM2277 Service Manual that could help you.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this free answer).

Few months old WM3987HW won't turn on - seems dead, unplugging and replugging won't work; outlet has power


Hi Rick,

I found your answer to another person's problem with the LG washer/dryer not turning on. We have the same problem. My husband found a piece of plastic near one set of the fuses that looks warped - like it got too hot. Is there any advice you can give? It's a piece next to the box by the main power cord with a metal coil.

My Kenmore HE2 Plus codes F24. What does it mean and how do I fix it. It works on the Clean Washer cycle. It works on the Rinse/Drain & spin cycle if you shut off the 2nd rinse.


On this model of HE washer, the F24 code indicates that the water temperature sensor is out of range (23 degrees to 217 degrees F). This usually indicates a bad thermistor (temperature sensor). A bad wiring connection or a failed control board could also cause this problem. If you have the technical ability to safely access internal washer components, you may be able to repair this problem yourself. Diagnostic steps would involve unplugging the washer and checking the wiring connections between the thermistor and the control board. A resistance check of the thermistor would be needed using a volt/ohm meter.

hope this helps....

Samsung front loading washer temperature sensor problem


It may not be your temperature sensor or thermistor. If you have a tE error code on your Samsung washing machine, first check the wiring. My Samsung washer had three visits by the repair tech. and new parts ordered again and again. I looked on a British web site and two people said that it turned out to be wiring broken in several places. Sure enough, I found a broken wire. Technician didn't look for that. Hope it's as easy for you.
