The CA indicates that an average current limit on the drive motor has been exceeded (see images below). This is an extremely hard problem to diagnose and one that I've seen cause the best service techs to pull their hair out. It can be one of so many different components, and you have to catch conditions just right to have half a chance to discover which one it is.

Try removing some of the clothes; this could be caused by overloading. You could have a mechanical failure in the universal joint, wiring harness, the drive motor, central control, or the motor controller.

My kenmore elite calypso washer is making a buzzing sound one minute into the wash cycle. It is about 9 years old. Should I fix it? How?


Sorry you had the bad luck to buy a calypso washer,probably the worst washer ever made! I also had the misfortune of owning this washer from hell. My washer had the same sounds as you described and in my case it was the water pump, which in this machine is separate. It wont be to long before you will have a total failure and then the fault light will come on.I am on my third pump and looking for a new one. Good luck on this one.

This code signifies that there may be a problem with the motor, thermal protector or motor controller. Overloading the appliance may cause such an error code. Try using a smaller load. If the code reappears, contact an appliance service company.

Kenmore Elite Calypso won't drain


"CA" is an Average Current Limit alarm or error. It's an indication that the you may have a problem with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Overloading the washer can cause this problem. Press Pause/Cancel to clear the alarm. If the problem persists, then I would suspect one of the causes that were mentioned. I hope this may help you.
