Whirlpool Calypso - Power surge killed computer

I have a set of WP Calypso machines. We had a power surge and now neither of them works at all. This happened once previously and we had to pay over $700.00 to replace the computer boards in both.

Is this an issue that is common?

Is it possible for me to replace them myself?

If you are in an area where you get power surges then you need to connect through a surge supressor or else it will keep on happening. It's not too hard to replace a board as long as you make the right connections.

The touch screen stopped working this morning. Can't do anything. Is there a reset button for the computer?


Re: the touch screen stopped working this morning. Can't do anything. Is there a reset button for the computer?
No there is not. If the touch screen is blank and you know that you have power at the outlet, then the computer module has been fried and will need to be replaced.
Possible reasons for a computer module going bad are most commonly due to power surges. If you plug in an outlet surge suppressor then plug your computerized washer and dryer into it, that will save you BIG $$$ over time.

Hello. Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

  • 120VAC electrical supply.
Check voltage supply to washer.
  • Open AC cord.
Check for voltage at the power cord connection to the line filter.
  • Line filter open.
Check voltage into and out of line filter.
  • Machine control board open.
With the washer off but connected to the AC outlet, measure the AC voltage between Pins 4 and 2 at connector P16.

My Kenmore Calypso washing machine has is


Where the power cord goes into the washer is a small box called a line filter. It is there to protect the electronics in the control. It might be that the line voltage filter has failed. Remove the rear panel on the control to access it. Calypso Service Manual

Whirlpool Calypso - Will not start


You ever hear of dog years? Well Calypso follows those same guidelines. So your machine is 35 years old. These are the Edsel's of washing machine fame. I had a Calypso for 6 1/2 years. 3 pumps, numerous circuit boards, drive motors, phone calls and arguements with Whirlpool, along with machine downtime. I finally junked it and bought a Whirlpool Duet 9200 HT (get the made in Germany machine). A world of difference in wash quality. Fresh smelling unballed clean clothes. The Calypso was removed from the market and the subject of a class action lawsuit. Just Google it and start reading. Get comfortable first. There's a lot to read.
