Hi.


The problem is that Whirpool does not distribute the single part anymore, not even to part sellers.
Apparently Whirlpool chose this strategy because more parts were failing in the washplate assembly.

Therefore the only alternative to purchasing the whole kit is finding an used Calypso for spares.

I have looked about fifteen parts distributor, they do not have the single part, but the kit only.

By the way the distributors that have the part, were selling it at $150, nearly the same price as the whole kit.

Here is an example, part is out of stock, but recent price for last stock was $150:

http://www.appliancepartsworldwide.com/Store_SearchResults.aspx?S=8318489&ST=BP

Here the kit at $130. This is the cheapes I have found:

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3136081&pn_=8318489


Here also kit from repairclinic, $139:

Here kit at RRP $259:



http://www.partselect.com/PartDetail.aspx?inventory=871329#




Concluding, the single part would have costed $150. You can purchase the whole kit at about $130, less than the single spare.


Please do not forget to leave feedback.


Regards.

Error in Cover Sensor (PS14) in M Toner Container

Description Unable to detect opening of the Toner Container Inner
Cover when removing the Toner Container.
Remedy Identify the cause of the error whether it is due to link
mechanism to open the Toner Container Inner Cover or
problem at the Toner Container Inner Cover Sensor side. ?
1. Perform the user mode (Adjustment/Maintenance>
Replace Specified Toner) to check if the Toner Container
Inner Cover opens normally (damage, slide of shaft area,
etc.). ?
2. Check if the Toner Container Inner Cover Sensor is
soiled and the installation of the sensor. ?
3. Check the service mode (COPIER> I/O> DCON> P024
bit9) to see that the output value of the Toner Container
Inner Cover Sensor is changed normally when opening/
closing the Toner Container Inner Cover. ?
If it is normal, the value becomes 0 by rotating the Set-on
Drive Shaft with the attached tool and opening the Toner
Container Inner Cover. When closing the Toner Container
Inner Cover by hand, it becomes 1. ?
3-1. When the Toner Container Inner Cover is not opened
although the Set-on Drive Shaft rotates, check the drive
system from upstream (Set-on Drive Unit -> Hopper Unit
-> Bottle Base Unit -> Toner Container Inner Cover Unit). ?
If it is damaged, replace the damaged part and then
perform step 5 and later steps. ?
3-2. When the output value is not changed normally
although the Toner Container Inner Cover can be opened/
closed, check the Sensor Harness (to see if the harness
is caught, disconnected or physically removed, *including
the Relay Connector). ?
If there is no problem, replace the sensor. After checking
the output value in step 3, perform step 5 and later steps. ?
4. If the problem is not solved by replacing the foregoing
parts, replace the Drum Driver PCB (UN4) and then
perform step 5 and later steps. ?
5. Clear the error in service mode (COPIER>
FUNCTION> CLEAR> ERR), and then turn OFF and then
ON the main power. ?
6. Replace the toner (reinstall the removed Toner
Container) at least once in user mode (Adjustment/
Maintenance> Replace Specified Toner), and check that
toner replacement can be performed normally.

Calypso washer clothes get stuck under the washplate ..the gap looks too wide between tub and washplate...does the washplate need replaced,, or is the plastic seal around the washplate replaceable???


THE PLATE CAN BE REPLACED, GET ONE FROM YOUR LOCAL APPLIANCE PARTS STORE OR SEARCH ON LINE, SEARSPARTSDIRECT.COM, REPAIRCLINIC.COM, ETC. GET MESH BAGS FOR YOUR SMALL ITEMS. THAT WILL PREVENT FUTURE PROBLEMS, IE: PUMP GET STUCK AND BURN(COMMON PROBLEM)

Maytag Dependable LAT8824AAE. Main tub seal leaks


The part number for the mounting stem and seal kit is 6-2095720 it cost about 85 bucks retail. You will also need to buy a special maytag spanner wrench to remove the inner tub. Its NOT an easy job the inner and outer tubs and hoses all need to be removed. The seal kit comes with no instructions. If you had a service company do the job it would be probably around 250 maybe more. We charge 104.95 labor for the job. Good luck _MJ_

How to remove outer washplate from. kenmore


1. UNPLUG THE WASHER.

2. Open the washer top. Look along the front seam of the washer where the top meets the front. There are a couple of retaining clips (about 2" in from each side) that you will need to push in on with a putty knife while gently lifting up on the top to get the top to release. Carefully open the top and lay it back in a resting position. Make sure you support the lid so it doesn't fall open when you tilt the top back. NOTE: I would recommend using duct tape to keep the lid closed and gently place the top against a wall for support. Use a towel between the cabinet and wall to prevent any damage to painted surfaces. This also reduces the strain on the top panel supports.

3. Remove the tub ring. This is the plastic donut shaped ring that sits on top of the wash tub. There will be a tab on either side of the outer tub near the back that you can use a screwdriver to release the tub ring. The ring is filled with fluid and is used to balance the tub. So, if you hear liquid sloshing around, this is normal.

4. Remove the wash plate center dome from the wash plate. This is the center cone on top of the wash plate. Use a flat blade screwdriver and insert it into any of the slots available along the sides. Gently pry until it pops off. I say "gently", but you may have to use a little muscle to get it to come off. Sometimes they stick. Once the center cone is removed there will be a series of nuts under it.

5. Remove the nuts and the main wash plate should lift out, exposing the inner wash plate. This is another cone shaped device located under the main wash plate. Remove the inner wash plate, using care not to damage the gasket under it. It is common for clothing to become tangled in the leveler or u-joint under this inner wash plate.

6. When all required maintenance is complete, reinstall the inner wash plate, ensuring the gasket is seated under it. The inner wash plate is keyed and should only install one way.

7. Insert the main wash plate and insert mounting bolts. Use a criss-cross pattern when tightening to ensure all bolts are tightened evenly and the gasket seats properly.

8. Reinstall the center dome on the wash plate by snapping it back in place.

9. Reinstall, the balance ring on the wash tub.

The following is a parts list of the most common items that may require replacement when you experience erratic motion of the wash plate, and/or clothing becoming damaged or entangled:

Wash Plate Dome
Main (Outer) Wash Plate
Inner Wash Plate
Leveler Assembly
Inner Wash Plate Seal
U-joint

Kenmore calypso has clothing stuck


I believe the problem is the Outer Wash Plate. Replacing it may fix your problem. I am about to do that to mine, so I don't know yet. The outer plastic 'seal' or rim of the washplate should be touching the inner surface of the stainless steel wash basket. So it catches clothes. I just installed a u-joint kit today, so needless to say, I got out the washplate and retrieved my clothes on the way to replacing the u-joint. It involves leaning up the upper lid and cover, removing the tub ring and balance ring and the dome. Then there are 6 bolts to remove the outer wash plate to get to your clothes underneath. Might as well replace the washplate while you are at it. to download the manual, copy this https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/2c1e295a88aaaae885256c5d004632a4/$FILE/8178010.pdf
into your internet explorer address line and save the manual. page 36 starts the instructions I used to remove the washplate and other items. I spent a LOT of time cleaning the gunk out.

Calypso


If you have already removed the outer washplate, the inner wash plate should just lift off the leveler and u-joint. The washplate dome refers to the center cone that fits on top of the outer wash plate. This piece comes off by inserting a screwdriver in the slots along the sides and gently prying to release the locking tabs. The mounting bolts that secure the outer wash plate also secure the inner wash plate to the u-joint assembly. There is a seal under the inner wash plate that may be holding it on. I don't know of anything else that would be holding it in place. Searspartsdirect.com has an excellent exploded view diagram of the wash plate and components that you may refer to provide you with a perspective on how everything fits together. I hope you find some of this information helpful. Please post back and let me know if you are still having problems.

PS You may have to resort to using a rubber mallet to lightly tap on the inner wash plate to knock it free.
