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.


The CL fault indicates that there was an instantaneous current spike of 26 amps at the motor windings in the washer. This could be caused by overloading the washer. It can also be caused by problems with the drive motor, thermal protector or the motor controller.

You should have been able to clear the display by pressing the STOP/CANCEL button.

If you try running the washer again and continue to get this fault code even with a small or medium load, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the washer.

Calypso washer starts runs for 2 min stops then starts then stops the starts and c1 flashes


The CI and CA error codes indicate that current (amp draw) limits for the drive motor were exceeded. Since you indicate that these codes were displayed even though the washer is not overloaded, it is likely that you have a problem with the motor, motor controller or the universal joint. An item stuck underneath the nut-ate plate or between the spin basket and the outer tube of the washer could also cause this problem.

My Whirlpool Calypso is flashing C1 when I try to start a load


Hello
C1/CI code indicates instantaneous current limit trip. This 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. Overloading the unit may cause this problem. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Start the wash (even with no items inside) and after about 1 to 2 minutes C1 or CI code appears on screen and system stops.


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 “CI” 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.
? Overloading the unit may cause this problem.

My kenmore elite calypso has a flashing code C1. What does this mean. Also, how can i get a manual for this washer, that explains all the codes.


C1 is not one of the normal codes. It's probably CI (upper i).
Stands for 'Instantaneous current' limit trip. Happens when there is a spike of 26 Amps intensity at the motor windings.
The manual states it may be a problem with the drive motor, thermal protector or motor controller.

check here for your stuff. make sure you put your exact model number in the box at the top. i used my machine (GVW9959KL1). absolutely awesome website and has very competitive prices, if not the best prices for parts. hope this helps.

Machine won't work it says C1 message. pls advice.


On Whirlpool Calypso washers that is probably not a "1" but is the letter i. The code "CI" is the fault code that indicates "Instantaneous Current Limit". 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 (fuse), or motor controller. Overloading the washer may cause this condition. Press stop/cancel to clear the display. Hope this helped you.

Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current draw greater than 5.55 Amps at the motor windings.

Error code c1 of ca


The C1 error is displayed when the motor tries to pull more than 26 amps to run.

This indicates a problem with the motor or motor controller.

Overloading or excessive suds can also cause this error.

If you like to make a few more checks then the image below contains the instructions for entering the diagnostic test mode.

Its a short cycle that runs all of the components so the operation of each can be checked.

I hope this helps but an intermittent C1 error can be hard to pin down.

From the service manual....

"C1 = 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."

I have a whirlpool calypso washer and it is showing an error code of C1, what does this mean and how do I fix it


CI (an "i", not a "one") and OB are related - overloaded, the washer's motor controller will draw too much current and either the average current will peak ("CA" error) or the instantaneous current will spike ("CI" error). OB - out of balance - indicates of course a load that is not balanced, or is too heavy. Wash less items and see if the problems lessen. That is what we have had to start doing, but we still can wash a BUNCH of items in this type washer!
