Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Calypso washing maching appears dead. Power is

Calypso washing maching appears dead. Power is coming into the machine (checked with gauge). This is not the first, second or third or more times this has happened. Have been able to get it to work by unplugging overnight in the past but not this time. Is there an internal fuse or circuit breaker on/in the machine itself? Help!!!
FYI, we have already had this machine service man repaired several times for miniscule reasons for lots of money and the machine is only several years old. We thought we were buying a quality machine and spent lots of money over all the other machines out there, but appently we were wrong. HELP!!!

Washing maching not working


Hello would need the complete model number and the make of the machine to provide exact solution whereas Error code 51 for a kenmore elite, Calypso, Catalyst usually tends to point towards a defective rps sensor which is the small sensor located on the stator (motor ). I will await your reply in order to supply an exact diagnosis of your issue
Thank you

My washer a calypso gvw9959k has no power . what could it be


Hello. Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

  • 120VAC electrical supply.
Check voltage supply to washer.
  • Open AC cord.
Check for voltage at the power cord connection to the line filter.
  • Line filter open.
Check voltage into and out of line filter.
  • Machine control board open.
With the washer off but connected to the AC outlet, measure the AC voltage between Pins 4 and 2 at connector P16.

Kenmore elite calypso doesn't respond to buttons except cancel


I've had a similiar problem on my calypso. In my case the key pad would go dead after washing or pushing stop after a few minutes. If I unpluged the unit for a few minutes it would work again. This would appear to be in the controller board. I removed the board and inspected it finding no problems. After re-installing the board the washer appears to be working again. My conclusion is that there is a loose connector/connection. I'd suggest you remove and re-install all the connectors on the controller board. This is the board closest to the power chord.

Good Luck, George S.

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.

Kenmore elite calypso washing machine conrol panel is dead like its lost power


Check the supply circuit. The receptacle might be GFCI and needs to be reset, or the circuit breaker may have tripped and need be reset. If you have power goihng to the machine, then the control board may have failed.

Just dead. Doesn't light up or start or respond.


You will need to replace the power supply most likely. If you can find a fuse or relay, check with an ohmmeter to determine that they are good. You can use a voltmeter to determine that there is power going to the control panel.
