    My kenmore Calypso just started doing the same thing, it first said Ld then it would run the water where the detergent is then flash FL and make a pretty loud noise like it wants to spin and agitate but can't. Any ideas on what these mean or how to fix the problem without having to call in a repair man or get a new one. I am 37 years old and on disability and don't have the money to do those things........

Stops in the middle of rinsing...leaves some water at bottom-


Calypso...The pumps fail often. They have redisigned one that theres not as many problems with, but if you still have the original, this is deffinatly the problem. As far as clothes getting stuck, the U-Joints wear out and cause too much play allowing things to get stuck. Total for this repair parts + labor will usually run about 500-600. There was a class action lawsuit for this machine and they no longer make it.

Washer calypso


Unplug your machine for 5 min then turn on spin to remove water. If water won't go you have a bad water pump. Code FL refers to a low water flow problem ( won't fill fast enough ) or old water still in tub.
Next you need to turn off the water ot the unit and remove the water lines. Look into the water inlets on the washer to see if the dirt screens are clogged and not letting water into you unit at a fast enough pace.
Your unit has a water level sensor and should agitate when full, but I believe your machine might be "timing out" i.e. not filling as fast as your unit expects so even though it doesn't fill all the way it begins agitating because it has taken too long to fill. Good Luck!
