this possibly a bad contact on the panel board, thats why the system malfunction by itself. better to check on the every switch contact and clean for any moisture on the board.

Calypso will not advance past wash cycle. I have a Calypso GVW9959K washer that displays no error codes and will run all functions in test mode. Problem is - it will run forever in the wash mode (clock...


If the machine is filling and washing but not advancing then the timer mechanism is not fuctioning. There is no codes so all other parts must be working, likke the pressure switch. You might test the door or lid switch this can sometimes hang these up. to test simply jump across the switch with a jumper wire. Basically
  • If the washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer does not advance, the timer probably needs to be replaced
  • If the timer does not advance while the washer is in a spin cycle, the timer probably needs to be replaced
  • I am supplying the service manual for this machine. Please be careful when attempting any repair and always make sure the machine is unplugged before starting any repair. This manual include service guides for testing components as well if your capable of these tests. The link will lead you to the manual. These manuals are not easy to come by due to the fact they are meant for service personell who make a living on these so it is inclusive and should help you in you issue.

    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.

    Kenmore elite calypso doesn't respond to buttons except cancel


    I've had a similiar problem on my calypso. In my case the key pad would go dead after washing or pushing stop after a few minutes. If I unpluged the unit for a few minutes it would work again. This would appear to be in the controller board. I removed the board and inspected it finding no problems. After re-installing the board the washer appears to be working again. My conclusion is that there is a loose connector/connection. I'd suggest you remove and re-install all the connectors on the controller board. This is the board closest to the power chord.

    Good Luck, George S.

    Lights,tries to run


    Sounds like you have a bad control board but could also be a pressure switch problem. You would have to have a technician check it out. The calypso machines were discontinued after a class action law suit. They have multiple issues and are not worth repairing. Save your money and buy a new machine.

    LTE6234 Whirlpool Twin Thin Timer Broken?


    Check for voltage at the water inlet valve with the timer dial pushed in or in an off position. If no voltage replace the water valve. If you do have voltage you'll have to trace the circuits back from the water valve to the line. One point of demarcation is the water level switch. Pull the violet colored wire and see if it still fills while off. If it does it's likely the timer's bad.

    Whirlpool Calypso - Will not start


    You ever hear of dog years? Well Calypso follows those same guidelines. So your machine is 35 years old. These are the Edsel's of washing machine fame. I had a Calypso for 6 1/2 years. 3 pumps, numerous circuit boards, drive motors, phone calls and arguements with Whirlpool, along with machine downtime. I finally junked it and bought a Whirlpool Duet 9200 HT (get the made in Germany machine). A world of difference in wash quality. Fresh smelling unballed clean clothes. The Calypso was removed from the market and the subject of a class action lawsuit. Just Google it and start reading. Get comfortable first. There's a lot to read.

    Trouble starting Cycles


    Jonsey, sounds like you have a keypad issue here. Do this test: press the following keys in this order soak-cycle signal-soak-cycle signal. If done right the display should show dt. Now press start, all the led's will light up. Now test them by pressing each one, you should hear a beep for each one. If some of them are not responding, check the P-11 and P-12 harness on the control board. You can also put this machine in the automatic test mode by pressing the keypads in this order; soak-soil level-soak-soil level. The display will start counting down from 99 to 0 testing different aspects of the machine. Any errors will be shown in the display. Catriver..post back.
