Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
We bought Whirlpool Calypso in 12/2003. We had some problems on and off, but nothing major. Now, it is completely dead. There are no lights and no power. Nothing happens when you try to set or start. The wall outlet is not a problem. Any suggestions other than calling the service? Does anyone had this experience?
Our Whirlpool washer is GVW9959KQ0, bought in September 2001, in September 2010 it had the problem as follow. When the panel was lite up, it was always set at "44" minute, NORMAL wash, no touch area is responsive, not even STOP or START. I could turn off the panel completely by pressing STOP and "Whitest white" in sequence quickly. When the panel was shut off, I could turn on the panel again by just pressing "STOP"; But the panel was back to "44" minute, NORMAL wash. Unplugging the power did not help (see as follow). That was the washer life for a couple weeks. We left it w/o power for 24 hours, it worked again normally just for 1 wash, and it was back again to the zombie mode; left it again for 24 hours, no luck, left it again for 24 hours, worked again for just one wash. We managed to wash 3 loads during the 2-week period (just 1 wash per time). Since the washing functionality sounds and looks working well to me, I thought that the panel might be the culprit. Finally we ordered Control Panel Assembly (Parts AP3884746, it is just the panel part where we touch for washing selections w/o electronic boards behind it) at appliancepartspros.com (cost $178 regular S

error indicates long drain time which means that there is either something
stuck/clogged in the pump or the pump itself has gone bad and should be
replaced. You can take it apart completely and check for impeller damage or
clogs. You have to clean it completely so make sure that you have lot of towels
ready as there will be water coming out of it when you clean the pump. Hope this helps...please post
back for further assistance.
