Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Machine is not draining - is not the timer this time.

My washer is not a calypso but is a top loader. I think my Whirlpool (model lsr8433kq0) was made in 2001 (when I bought it). The original timer went bad, got a new one, installed it and I can't get it to start @ the drain-spin cycle (is full of water). I can only start it at the begining of each full cycle, it shakes but when it comes time to drain it doesn't. I checked and re checked part number and it checks ok (I got it from repair clinic.com). Help is needed big time, can afford to go another weekend without it.

Many thanks in advance for the help.

Meteoro.

More often than not the lid switch housing has seperated, not allowing the switch to operate properly. In a pinch9or until the new part arrives) you can "snap" the housing back together and place a zip tie around the housing to keep it from seperating again. This is not a permanent sollution, but it dies work. and my wife is still doing the laundry. I fix she washes.

Won't fillCalypso whirlpool washer model#GVW9959KQ1 LD on display


LD is long drain error, the machine does not fill because it is in fault mode, but error is on drain system.

If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.

Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.

Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.

Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for ablockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

Ifall the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.Problemwith water pump are far more commonly causing this problemsthenfaulty timer board.

Whirlpool top loader 9 kg - I can't see any serial no.


There are no lint filters on this machine. The lint is pumped out with the water. There may be a restriction in the drain line starting where it connects to the tub or the small drain holes in the inner tub may be clogged.
