    We are having the same exact problem that Kathy is experiencing.

    A 25 minute cycle is taking 2 hours because every cycle is turning off and on. All lights are displaying as normal. 2 technicians from Whirlpool have been out and tightened a few wires. It works fine for 2 washings and then goes back to the same 2 hours bull ****.

    I have the exact same problem. The water turns on, then off, repeatedly. It starts to spin, then stops. I had a repairman out and he stated it was "the motor", replaced it for a large fee. The very next day I had the same problem.

    me too. But after it cuts on and off a couple of times, it stops and gives an "LD" error. This will be about the 4th time I call for a repair on this stupid washing machine!

Calypso washer won't drain


It sounds like you may have something stuck in the pump...try and locate the pump(normaly at the bottom of machine)and unscrew the cover...be aware that the machine may still have water in it....once you unscrew the cover,have a look and a feel inside...there may be a coin or other object stoppint the pump from turning...remove any foreighn object...replace the screw on cover and try to drain the water again....this should solve your problem.

When running wash cycle, the washer stops during initial cycle when water is going into tub. The "Ld" error code comes up on the panel and sometimes it is accompanied by a humming sound. Can not start...


LD is long Drain.

You'll need to crawl underneath and disconnect the hoses to check the traps for obstructions.
Have a pan handy to catch the water.

Won't fillCalypso whirlpool washer model#GVW9959KQ1 LD on display


LD is long drain error, the machine does not fill because it is in fault mode, but error is on drain system.

If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.

Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.

Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.

Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for ablockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

Ifall the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.Problemwith water pump are far more commonly causing this problemsthenfaulty timer board.

Ld error code won`t drain.or do anything starts for 10 sec and stops


Owner manual - Code Ld -says the drain hose is kinked or clogged.

Check that the hose didn't get kinked when pushed back to the wall. It's a common problem. The problem is NOT the wall drain as water would be coming out onto the floor if that was the issue.

Calypso - water goes straight to drain hose-not drum


the hose may still be filled from last cycle. try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
