Hi,

CE refers to :-

CE communications - Error If there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller, "CE" flashes and the unit beeps once.
Some common causes of "CE" errors include:
·Conformal coating on serial communications pins between the machine controller and motor controller. After disconnecting power to the unit, try scraping this coating off the pins.
· Check the resistance values between the serial communications pins with the connectors in place. Make sure the harness does not have a bad connection.
· Check the quick disconnect at the motor terminal. The drive motor must be hooked up properly or a "CE" error will occur.
· Drive motor thermal protector has opened.
·Motor controller is not powered or fuse has opened. Replace motor controller.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Check all the check points above mentioned. I believe the above one is self explanatory.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have seen shorts in the lower wire harness causing the board to blow, inspect or test for continuity in the lower harness. Also, see if the fuse is blown on the board, this will be because of a short. Let me know what you find.

CE error stands for “Communications Error” and refers to a broken communication between the timer control board and the motor control unit.

If replacing the main control board did not help, then test wiring harness to motor control unit, and then test and eventually replace MCU.
There is a fuse on the motor control board and , if it blows the board may be faulty.

Communication error between the Motor control board and the Machine control board. They are both inside the console just behind the key pad. It is usually a **** shoot as to which one has failed with this error code, but for one reason or another they are not talking to each other.

Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K washer CE error


Communications Error. If there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller, "CE" flashes and the unit beeps once. All of the possible causes require service of some kind. You can google for the service manual of your model # if you are so inclined to try self-service repairs but you need to be comfortable working with electronic circuit boards (behind the control panel). I would not attempt any of this kind of repair unless you had some experience, for you can make the problem worse if you do not handle the electronics correctly.

Got a LD then a CE error


CE Communications Error If there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller, CE flashes and the unit beeps once.
This can be caused by corroded pins on the control card or motor control. Most of the time this relates to a faulty machine control card.

Code CE


CE stands for Communication error. The Calypso has 2 circuit boards inside that touchpad area. One is the motor control board and the other is the machine control board. They are not "talking" to each other for some reason. The boards are warranted for 5 years on most machines. This machine is the subject of a class action lawsuit. Just Google Whirlpool Calypso sit back and start reading.
