What does error code dc mean?

DC error code means: "Unbalanced load". It can occur if the washer:
1. is overloaded (too many clothes inserted),
2. can't balance the load within a few balance cycles,
3. has a damaged balance sensor,
4. isn't regulated properly (vibrates abnormally).
IMHO you just overloaded the washer :)

How do I fix a whirlpool calypso washer that cuts out after 5 seconds on the spin cycle?

Is it overloaded? Out of balance? Try no clothes and a small amount of water. It may give a clue. Depending on its age, a lightly used replacement may be close to the repair tech's charges.

I overloaded my washer and now when it spins it seems to be off balance. It's really loud and inefficient in getting the water out of the clothes. I don't know anything about electronics and don't really...

You may have knocked the whole machine off balance. Is it a bit wobbly when you lean on it? If so adjust the feet to level it.
Try spinning on empty to get the drum happy again.

I have overloaded the washing machine and now it is off balance and i need to know how to fix it

Kenmore top loaders are equipped with an auto-leveling system on the back two feet of the washer. Typically, what happens when the washer becomes off-balance it's a simple matter of the auto-leveler needing to be readjusted. This is a very simple process that requires no special tools. The following link explains:

The rear auto-leveler should be periodically checked from time to time to ensure the washer maintains level. Any excessive vibration may cause the rear of the washer to become mal-adjusted. This is normal. Once the rear feet are properly leveled, make sure the front feet are adjusted so that the washer is level front-to-back and side-to-side. Use a level across the top of the washer cabinet (NOT the lid! The lid on most washers is slightly bowed.) to check.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

I have a whirlpool calypso washer and it is showing an error code of C1, what does this mean and how do I fix it

CI (an "i", not a "one") and OB are related - overloaded, the washer's motor controller will draw too much current and either the average current will peak ("CA" error) or the instantaneous current will spike ("CI" error). OB - out of balance - indicates of course a load that is not balanced, or is too heavy. Wash less items and see if the problems lessen. That is what we have had to start doing, but we still can wash a BUNCH of items in this type washer!

These machines are very touchy and go out of balance easily. You may find success by unplugging the machine for 10 seconds and plugging it back in. Also consider releveling the machine. If you may have overloaded it, avoid that in the future. hope this helps!

This type of thing should not be required. Front load washing machines (well, topload too i guess) will balance themselves out for the spin cycle unless the machine is grossly overloaded.

Good luck.

Own a Maytag Washing Machine Model No. LAT9416AAE I overloaded with a extra large comforter. I started the cylce and went upstairs to my room leaving it unattended. My parents were down stairs With it, and...

there is a thermal overload protector in the motor. After the motor cools it should restart. There is an off balance switch that might have been tripped when pulling out the comforter or when bailing out the water. As for the belts, tip the machine back and you will see the belts underneath the washer. Very easy to change and you'll see what I mean when you see the belts. That should solve your problem. AND DON'T OVERLOAD THE WASHER AGAIN.
