Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
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.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello kjgoodwin22 - This particular issue can be caused by quite a few reasons. Washer could be experiencing a communication error from the main control board, faulty door lock assembly, faulty pump or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Did you notice a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly or pressure switch. You can also press and hold the start/pause and cancel button together at the same time for approximately 30 seconds to display an error code on the LED. What error code does it display? However, I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the washer
