Google my posting on for checking/replacing the Calypso pump. One of their best known engineering defects. They should have put a filter in front of it! It clogs and stops working, burning up the pump motor usually. I've replaced mine myself twice. Sears replaced it two times before the warranty ran out. Hope this helps.

This is a pretty simple job except for the skinned knuckles but if you feel the need for an illustration, enter make and model number on the Sears parts department website. They have many thousands of line-drawing illustrations from just about every brand made-

I want to buy a used calypso washer that needs a repair, how much

$300 plus. If you are handy, or you know someone who is, It is a fairly easy fix. The pump assy. might run you around $100. I fix my own about once a year. Strands of clothing and lint get wrapped around the pump propeller, causing the error before it burns up. With all the other probs associated with calypso's, I wouldn't touch it (maybe if it was free?).

Whirlpool Calypso - replaced pump/motor, but still get incomplete spin cycle with 'ob' and 'sl' errors. Never gets up any speed during spin cycle. What else might this be?

So here's my solution... Remove the new pump/motor combo. Go to "Appliance Center" and pick out a nice new Maytag and have it delivered the next day. Have them haul the POS Calypso away and sell the new pump. Let me know it you need a new pump....

Calypso Leaking

try replacing the drain hose where it connects to the pump? perhaps the pump itself had something caught up in it, i own one of these machines as of a few days ago and i aquired it with it not draining, after i cleaned up the pump and put it back, all is good... check your pump assembly if possible or run it thru with the front panel off to see where the leak is coming from.. directions are avaliable under the owner center on just enter your model # in and look for a parts diagram of the cabinet...
good luck..
