Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
The only reason clothes not getting clean is a wash plate and wash plate
dome not working. Verify if these parts are working to clean the
clothes by opening the lid and the Peekaboo Mode allows you the see the
washer during a wash action for 5 seconds at 150 nutates per second
after the lid is opened. You should press the Start button when the lid
is closed to continue the cycle.
The belt is likely broken if you can hear the motor running without a wash plate action. Gently pry on the emblem and remove the T-20 Torx screw holding the washer top to the cabinet latch.
Slide the washer top approximately 1/2 inch forward to clear the cabinet latch then raise the front of the washer top up and prop it high enough.
Remove the four screws located along the top edge of the front cabinet panel then lift the front cabinet panel out and up to disengage the slots at each side of the panel from the tabs in the side panels.
Check the physical condition of the drive belt and the transmission assembly for any sign of conspicuous damage. Replace the belt if worn or broken.
Activate or bypass the interlock switches on the left and bottom side of the cabinet as shown then plug the machine in and start a cycle to verify the operation of the drive motor.
