    I had called in a service man he told me it is the pump and it would cost me $356.00 to get it fixed..cost of pump 189.00 and rest labor.
    My washer model is GVW9959KQ2( white). and serial number is CP3239783.
    so your recommendation is to change the drain motor (mtr) , is it same thing as pump....?
    right now washer keeps filling up with suds from the water i cannot see..if i cycle it at extra spin for 8 min. it is leaking all over the place.
    thanks

WP HAS HAD A ON GOING ISSUE WITH THIS THAT IS THE REASON WHY THEY REDIGNED THE DRAIN PUMP. YOU NEED TO 1ST DRAIN OUT AS MUCH WATER MANUALLY AS YOU CAN THEN DISCONNECT ALL YOUR HOSES FROM WALL TAKE THE WM OUTSIDE TO DRAIN THE OTHER 3 GALLONS OF WATER YOU CANNOT SEE. TURN THE MACHINE ON ITS BACK THEN USING A 5/16 NUT DRIVER REMOVE 4 SCREWS ON THE BOTTOM PANEL. REMOVE PANEL AND YOUR DRAIN MTR IN ASSESSIBLE. THE PART CAN BE ORDERED AT WWW.REPAIRCLINIC.COM

    sud can be remedied by running white vinegar of fabric softner to get rid of the soap suds. and yes the drain mtr or drain pump is the same thing the actual electronic drain pump assembly. at $356 that is a very fair price concidering the national avg. for labor is $150 an hr.

Calypso washer won't drain


It sounds like you may have something stuck in the pump...try and locate the pump(normaly at the bottom of machine)and unscrew the cover...be aware that the machine may still have water in it....once you unscrew the cover,have a look and a feel inside...there may be a coin or other object stoppint the pump from turning...remove any foreighn object...replace the screw on cover and try to drain the water again....this should solve your problem.

When running wash cycle, the washer stops during initial cycle when water is going into tub. The "Ld" error code comes up on the panel and sometimes it is accompanied by a humming sound. Can not start...


LD is long Drain.

You'll need to crawl underneath and disconnect the hoses to check the traps for obstructions.
Have a pan handy to catch the water.

Won't fillCalypso whirlpool washer model#GVW9959KQ1 LD on display


LD is long drain error, the machine does not fill because it is in fault mode, but error is on drain system.

If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.

Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.

Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.

Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for ablockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

Ifall the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.Problemwith water pump are far more commonly causing this problemsthenfaulty timer board.

Ld error code won`t drain.or do anything starts for 10 sec and stops


Owner manual - Code Ld -says the drain hose is kinked or clogged.

Check that the hose didn't get kinked when pushed back to the wall. It's a common problem. The problem is NOT the wall drain as water would be coming out onto the floor if that was the issue.

Calypso - water goes straight to drain hose-not drum


the hose may still be filled from last cycle. try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
