Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

2 Answers

My Kenmore Calypso Elite HD Top Loading washer quit cycling through a complete wash today. I've drained all the water from the interior hoses and found them clean and uncloged. The washer belt looks good and tight and everything underneath looks to be in good working order. The washer stops during the wash cycle and seems to cycle the (I beleive it is the pump motor)on and off for only a second or so each time before shutting off again. The machine finally shuts down and an Ld error light is shown.

I have this issue constantly. The pump is clogged. You have to drain the tank, remove the cover on the pump and remove all the gunk around the fan wheel, or whatever they call it. I'm 99% confident this is your issue. The bad news is that you'll have to do this for the rest of the time you own the washer. I lost count on how many times I've done it. I've had the washer since 2005.

Skipneal,

The code on your machine stands for 'Long Drain'. Ld flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets. Check the intake and exit hoses of the recirc pump for debris. It's easiest to get to the pump through the front panel of the machine(click here). Looks like this: click here. the hoses to the pump have spring clips holding them on. Be careful taking the hoses off, have something to catch the water from the hoses.

Hope this helps.

Hello Kimberley,
It appears that a part of your question is cut off so i may be off base here but what i am reading is that your washer will go through the wash cycle and drain the wash water then just quit?? is that what is happeningIf yes that is whats going on i think what is happening is that after the wash cycle it fills with only COLD WATER for the rinse cycle and its not filling with the rinse water and just sits their until the rinse cycle water is filled and if its not getting cold water into the washer its not going to do anything If it is filling with cold water my apologies my bad for misinterpreting what the question reads and i ask ya to re-ask it.

We experienced the same thing. I was able to restart and locate the noise to the water pump. After disassembling the water pump found the impeller shaft sliding out. For some reason this shaft will not stay in place. Had to order a complete pump assembly as the electric motor is not available.

Kenmore Calypso washer Ld code?


I just had the same problem. I borrowed my neighbors wet vac. The hose of the wet vac fit right over the end of the drain hose and I sucked out all the remaining water. My hope was that if the hose was clogged that it would clear it out. It seems that it worked. I put the drain hose back in the drain and turned on the extended spin cycle. It was working, so I put the water logged clothes back in the washer on the extended spin cycle and it took the water out. I am now in the process of washing another load to see if it really fixed the problem. I hope this helps.

sounds like you have a bad water valve,,either that or a bad water temp select switch,(doubt that). way more common is a bad water valve.
