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 “CI” 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.
? Overloading the unit may cause this problem.

Kenmore elite calupso washer starts and runs for 2 min then stops then starts then stops and C1 flashes


The CI and CA error codes indicate that current (amp draw) limits for the drive motor were exceeded. Since you indicate that these codes were displayed even though the washer is not overloaded, it is likely that you have a problem with the motor, motor controller or the universal joint. An item stuck underneath the nutate plate or between the spin basket and the outer tube of the washer could also cause this problem.

My Whirlpool Calypso is flashing C1 when I try to start a load


Hello
C1/CI code indicates instantaneous current limit trip. This 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. Overloading the unit may cause this problem. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Say ci intermitent in the display and sometimes stop cooling


The error code should be C1 and this would mean that the return air sensor is either disconnected or faulty. The sensor is clipped onto the fin plates of the evaporator where the air is drawn into the evap.

Machine won't work it says C1 message. pls advice.


On Whirlpool Calypso washers that is probably not a "1" but is the letter i. The code "CI" is the fault code that indicates "Instantaneous Current Limit". 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 (fuse), or motor controller. Overloading the washer may cause this condition. Press stop/cancel to clear the display. Hope this helped you.

My Sears Elite Calypso Washer shows a C1 error code


The C1 error is displayed when the motor tries to pull more than 26 amps to run.

This indicates a problem with the motor or motor controller.

Overloading or excessive suds can also cause this error.

If you like to make a few more checks then the image below contains the instructions for entering the diagnostic test mode.

Its a short cycle that runs all of the components so the operation of each can be checked.

I hope this helps but an intermittent C1 error can be hard to pin down.

From the service manual....

"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."

I have a whirlpool calypso washer and it is showing an error code of C1, what does this mean and how do I fix it


CI (an "i", not a "one") and OB are related - overloaded, the washer's motor controller will draw too much current and either the average current will peak ("CA" error) or the instantaneous current will spike ("CI" error). OB - out of balance - indicates of course a load that is not balanced, or is too heavy. Wash less items and see if the problems lessen. That is what we have had to start doing, but we still can wash a BUNCH of items in this type washer!

C1 Fault


code CL.(C1) This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem. Calypo washers do have a history of break downs within the drive system.
