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...

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.

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

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.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
