Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
After having the Calypso washer for three years, I have noticed that when I open the lid after doing a load of wash, water drains from the seal on the lid onto the clothes. These are not just a few drops either. Is the seal gone or is this quite natural with this washer. As this wets the clothes again, I usually run another spin cycle or interrupt the final spin to empty the seal and continue with the spin. Is there anything wrong with the machine needing service? Thanks!
The seal shouldn't be doing what you've described. It would probably be a good idea to replace it at this point if its causing you to have to run the washer through another spin cycle. I would recommend replacing the seal yourself to avoid the labor costs. It's a simple repair job and you can find the part you need at repairclinic.com as item #722572. Just type in your model number in the search menu. It costs about $15. I hope this helps you.

Part 722572 is not the correct part. 722572 is the straight 21" seal on the front of the lid. You need to round lid seal, which is about 50" and I cannot find anywhere on the internet. It is like they want you to buy the entire lid which is not cheap. I put a 1/4" nylon rope under the seal. I melted the ends together so that it would not fall out. This pushes the seal out. It appears to be working so far. I may go and buy a weather seal that has self adhesive if this rope stops working.
