    I too have a Calypso washer with CE error code. The tech sheets indicate this is a problem with the motor control board. The first time this occurred was 2 months ago. I determined with a multimeter that the fuse on the board was blown, which means you need to replace the whole board. I bought a new board from Sears Parts, installed it, and was back in business. (Cost about $160 with shipping.)

    Two months later, same problem. The fuse on the new board is blown. Sears is sending me a replacement part, but I'm wondering if the part was defective or if something else is causing that fuse to blow. Can anyone tell me how I might determine if there's a secondary cause?

    I've performed resistance tests on the motor the board connects to (using the tech sheet that came with the washer). Everything on those tests looked good. Is there something else that might be causing an overload on that fuse?

    Thanks.

There is a Rotor Position Sensor on the motor under the tub. 1st try unplugging and re-installing the sensor connector several times to clean the contacts. If this doesn't work, replace the sensor.

Hi

CE is a communication error which flashes if there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller. To solve this issue check the drive motor and the motor controller and replace the part that is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Most all error codes on a Calypso end up being a pump problem. If all the water can't be pumped out, the tub gets too heavy for the motor to handle and it will cause a CE error code. Something like lint or wire or screw may be caught in pump impellar. If your not familiar with repair you need to call for service.

Not starting


when you start the cycle and does it beep once and then show "CE" .. There is a communication error between the machine control and motor control.

There may be some Conformal coating on serial communications pins between the machine controller and motor controller.

After disconnecting power to the unit, try scraping this coating off the pins.

Check the resistance values between the serial communications pins with the connectors in place. Make sure the harness does not have a bad connection. Check the quick disconnect at the motor terminal. The drive motor must be hooked up properly or a CE error will occur. maybe the Drive motor thermal protector has opened.
Motor controller is not powered or fuse has opened.

Kenmore elite calypso 24082 error code CE


On the ccu, the board on the right is usually the culprit, I have recently replaced one with that same error but I would first unplug it and remove and re connect each plug on the board looking for dark connections or dialysis, corrosion. If not fully insert each plug and try again.
