Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Squeeking sound 2 yr old Calypso top load washing machine GVW9959K-0 that has developed a loud sqeeking noise when going through wash cycle. It happens when tub comes to a stop and then starts to move again , lasts for about 2-3 seconds but is getting worse. I'm guessing the belt is the cause but not sure. Would applying some belt dressing to the belt be advisable ? What are your thoughts ?

Re: Squeeking sound

Sounds more like the brake assy. is sticking.

On the top shaft you will notice there are to moving shoes. These shoes are what start and stop the transmission spin capabilities. Either the shoes or the drum service needs to be serviced and possibly replaced.

Our Kenmore Calypso 110.21082 is making a thumping sound in the wash cycle but not during the spin cycle. Seems to thump a little louder with every load. Any suggestions?

This washer has a very complex ujoint system that make the wash plate "nutate" as Whirlpool defines it. Something may be wrong with this system. I recommend having a pro do this job unless you have good mechanical prowess.

Pump makes noise and water runs out of bottom of machine error ob

HI. You may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case, replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

A broken impeller will wobble inside the pump housing, causing loud noises during operation. This is a strong indicator of pump failure. This will, also, cause leakage as well. the integrity of the pump housing will be compromised, leading to this leakage.
