When i push the start button nothing comes on,if i unplug the machine and plu it back in the machine works fine for a while than stopes working

You need to offer more info for us to assist with possible fault.
When you say unplugging/re-plugging it allows it to work for a while, please explain - do you mean it works for a few minutes, it for a few hours or for a few washing cycles/days? Does it stop part way through a wash, or once started will it always finish a wash before failing again?

Ok, this washer has been loyal and a trooper up intil two days ago, I went to start a load of laundry and, it fills with water, but when it is time to agaitate it starts making grinding noises, and wont...

This sounds like the transmission is having a problem and can be a very costly repair. If you haven't money to repair it, as it seems you may not, you can try free cycle dot org and see if any one is willing to give you a used machine they aren't using.

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...

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.

No panel lights!

Solution - MEASURE voltage in outlet with digital meter and if it is not ~115 V or very close do nothing - wait till it gets to norm.

Longer explanation:
I had similar problem today. Dryer fine, washer (front loader Affinity 6000) dead. Electric power there. Day before had no electricity for few hours. Turned out to be that this thing is sensitive to voltage. I have now from 101 to 103 volts and it needs something close to 115. I have almost disassembled it but it was hard to do and no manual on web (except to purchase for $15). So, after removing back paned and few screws from front I have turned my attention to my UPS I have for TV - it sometimes would blink with blue diode (means it is starting). I thought why... Then I have luminescent (energy saver) lamps around house and those are not sensitive to voltage so lights are fine. In bathroom however I have halogens and those seemed dim. This time I have looked at my tester again and noticed that it shows ~101.2 volts. So I am taking UPS from my TV and moving it to laundry, plug UPS to outlet, washer to UPS - washer still dead. I unplug UPS from outlet and washer comes alive...

Hope this helps.
