Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
Error code C1 indicates problem with drive motor-thermal protector-or motor controller
Overloading may also cause the problem.
Press( stop/cancel) to clear the display. If that does not help then, "C1 = Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limit."
If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current
limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and
display either CA for average current limit trip or Cl for
instantaneous current limit trip.
Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current
draw greater than 5.55 amps at the motor windings
Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps
instantly at the motor windings.
This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com
