Washers fine but doesnt drain water and go to rinse cycle


Check the drain hose may be kinked. Washers have been known to eat socks, they go in to the the tub during the spin cycle and down in the pump. If you are so inclined to look dome pumps are clear and you can see the sock. There is a hose clamp to remove and you may be able to remove the sock. Reassemble and test. Remember as always to unplug the washer first before doing any work. This exploded view has a washer and if you hover over the bottom right it will show what the pump looks like.

We have a calypso by whirlpool, keep getting LD code, replaced pump with upgraded version last year. code started back again this week. removed hoses looking for obstructions, nothing, took out washer...


Did you check the impeller of the pump? These washers - Sears version included - seem notorious for eating clothes and sucking them into the pump's impeller, jamming it or clogging it. You have to stick your finger inside the plastic impeller pipes (in or out) and see if anything is wound around the blades. The upgraded pump is a single sealed unit that you cannot take apart or you'd probably void the warranty on the part. I find that articles of clothing tend to get pretty deeply embedded in the impeller and have to be carefully pulled out, and you can't see anything if you just remove hoses looking in them for obstructions. You can certainly remove the pump assembly and look down the pipes with a flashlight. When you removed the waster plate did you replace the gaskets/seals? If not, that can lead to problems with the integrity of the water tight seals that protect the U-Joint.

Washer will not discharge water after wash or rinse cycle


Pump failure. Unit probably has something stuck in pump....the washer eats the socks not the dryer. suggest shope vac to get water out, and then remove hose from pump and check to see if its clear.

My Sears Calypso washer is not draining. discharge pump is new and working. It looks like something is in the plastic tub blocking drainage. How do you remove spindle & SS tub to get at the plastic tub...


You really should replace the seals, gaskets and o-rings when you remove either the outer or inner wash plate or you have compromised the water tight seal for the U-Joint which drives the wash plate, and the washer will eventually fail completely (rust out the U-joint and brakes), from what the service manual warns. These units tend to eat small articles of clothing in the gap between the wash plate and the tub, if the seal starts to wear. According to the book, the gaskets and such must also be replaced when these plates are removed to avoid the inevitable seal integrity compromise that will ruin the unit's moving parts.

Water still in bottom of tub after drain/spin cycle


I removed the drain hose from the bottom left rear corner of the washer & cleaned a large amount of gooey sludge from the bottom of the drain inside the washing machine.

Clothes stuck under the agitator


you really have clothes stuck under the "wash plate" it has almost zero clearance and would be very hard to get something stuck under the wash plate.
if you do have something stuck, then remove the 1 1/2 inch cap in the center of the plate, then a 7/16th bolt that holds the plate down. then grab the wash plate and lift up to remove it.
next time check your pockets and dont let this happen again, it could ruin the outertub by cutting a hole thru it and then leaking.

On the 40660 washer this element is in line with the top sprayer arm pipe and is at the back bottom of the washer. Easly reachable by removing the back bottom plate. Has a clamp on each end and a electrical push on connector.

unplug the washer, take off the bottom kick plate there should be a pump on the right hand side. with sort of a plug that screw in looks sort of like a pvc pipe. Get a bucket, and place it under the opening, unscrew the opening. there is propably something stuck in there. mine likes to eat socks. empty it out and screw it back in. plug the machine back in and start it up it should work fine. I now put all of my socks is a mesh bag, and check pockets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
