Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

We went camping for 2 days came home and the calypso washing machine won't start. We ran a load the day we left with no problems. The outlet works fine, we even tried plugging it into another outlet just in case, to no avail. Unplugged it for an hour and plugged it back in, but it's still dead. Any suggestions?

The same happened with my Sears Calypso machine. The common problem is the front display panel. If you are able to find one at a very good price, post it here.

My 91 cutless ran out of gas one day and has never ran right since. Replaced ever sensor on the car, fuel pump every thing. Runs good for 2 or 3 days and then it won't stay started. Went out few mouths...


You may have loaded a fuel line or connector up with contaminants. What else is happening during the second or 3rd day of running? Is it running low on fuel? Try to make a list of your gauge set! It only makes sense.

Our kenmore elite quiet pack 2 front load washer appears to have no power at all. No lights, no codes, nothing. Worked as expect just 2 days prior. No brakers have been tripped on the electric panel...


Always start with the simplest thing, verify that the outlet is good before troubleshooting the machine. I cannot tell you how often the home electrical is the problem not the machine.

My Kenmore Calypso washing machine has is


Where the power cord goes into the washer is a small box called a line filter. It is there to protect the electronics in the control. It might be that the line voltage filter has failed. Remove the rear panel on the control to access it. Calypso Service Manual

My washer doesn't want to turn on at all. It was working fine the first day we brought it home. This is a second hand machine.


assuming you have power getting to it, the door safety switch may not be closing..On older machines this was done by a plastic pin on the lid operating a switch when it closes. On later machines the left hinge operates the switch. Check the hinge screws are tight.

Washer shows no signs of power


Yup, this is what happened to me. I also get a "44" error code and erroneous beeping. This is exactly what the class action law suit was about. The Whirlpool Calypso's of your type have the red LED and touch controls, right? They go bad internally after a few years, regardless of how much or how little you use them. There is nothing you can do. Order a new or reconditioned control panel, or have it serviced and repaired by a qualified company referred by Whirlpool Service... Don't do this yourself... The part is about $200 or so plus $60 to $80 minimum call out charge, and sometimes the new parts are as bad as the one you currently have. Best Bet... Time to upgrade to something newer. You may spend your money on this repair, yet in a few months, have the same thing again or something else go wrong. It's just not worth the repair.... Indy :)

The model numbers are different in the U.S. so I am not sure if I can give you correct advise.
The only Whirlpool models I am aware of that use suspension rods are the Calypso and Cabrio. These are high effeciency topload washers. The symptoms you describe are fairly common in the Calypso after a few years use.
The springs inside the leveler break and cause little or no agitation. The viberation and spinning problem sounds like a worn drive tube. The excess wear in the shaft allows too much movement of the basket during spin which causes noise and out of balance conditions. This would be an expensive repair here and most people will usually replace the machine rather than repairing it.
I am going to be out all day, but will try to find some information on your model this evening and post back if I come up with better information.
Thanks, Mike
