Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
Hi, you have a flood code. My neighbour is on pump # 3 with his 6 year old Calypso. Fibers and lint get tangled in the pump causing failure. You must replace both motor and pump now sold as a one piece unit. Part # 285990. Go to Appliancepartsoutlet.com for $88.95. Everyone else is $109 for same part. You have to access from underneath the machine. Move away from the wall far enough so you can tip the machine to rest on the wall and steady it with some blocks of wood so it doesn't fall on you while you are underneath it. Drop the bottom plate to the see area you'll have to work on. Drain the machine by unclamping the two pressure clamps attatched to the pump and be ready to collect about 3-4 gallons of water in a shallow pan. A wet vacuum , rags , and a helper won't hurt. Drop motor by removing 3 screws and unhooking the electrical harness clamp. Install new part and reconnect everything and your good to go.
