Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
After doing a load of rugs and adding some oxyclean, wich seems to have created a lot of bubbles, ( we did try the rinse and spin cycle) how ever the washer won't drain and now water is leeking out of the bottom of the machein. It seems to be plugged up or something. Please help me know how to unpuge it I am not sure how to take off the hose or what ever is necessary My washer is not a calypso but is also a top loader, I think it was made in 2001 (when I bought it). That Whirlpool model is lsr8433kq0. Original timer went bad, got a new one but I seem to be unable to start it @ the drain-spin cycle (is full of water) it only works at the begining of every full cycle, it shakes for a little while but it doesn't drain, I checked and double checked timer model for appliance compatibility and it checks ok (got it from repair clinic.com). What could be the problem, assistance needed, can't go another weekend without it. Thanks in advance. Bill
Not draining quick enough, therefore spins with too much water throwing it self off bal. ever have any problem with this machine. heres what i can suggest. tip the machine back and remove 3 5/16 screws holding bottom panel on . on the right side approx 2/3 of the way back is the pump assy.( a yellow and black hose going to pump. are there clips on the pump holding it up to the pump motor???if so yuou can release the clips and disconnect the hoses looking for lint build up in pump itself.WARNING!!! you will ge wet ther is ALWAYS water inside this pump especially if you not pumping out correctly.i use a large black trash bag under to catch water.sounds like a clogged drain pump. they have a replacement for this particular pump. it comes as 1peice now pump and motor, bigger ports to prevent lint build up, easy enough to replace if needed. sounds like a clog fro sure though good luck
