Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
Our Calyspso washer seems to have had it. It was eating laundry by pulling it down around the edges and getting stuck beneath the agitator. We bought a new one, but it still pulls items down.
Now it will fill with water, but will not turn. There is a humming sound and eventually we get a C1 error code (the one that says the motor is pulling to many amps and shuts down). I pulled off the agitator and the plastic hub underneath is somewhat melted and you can see some metal (perhaps a bolt or washer) underneath.
Thoughts on what needs to be replaced?
I haven't had the problem with the washer tearing up my clothes as of yet but I have with the c1 error code. According the the manual there are three possibilities. 1- Bad drive motor 2- Bad thermal protector ( solution to fix replace the drive motor) 3- Bad motor control board. The last one was what needed to be replaced in mine.
