Hi all, we have a HUGE problem....our calypso washing machine has a problem with the agitator seal resulting in clothes being caught underneith the agatator. Is there a known design problem with this type...


The problem you are experiencing is caused by overloading your machine. When the clothes are just below the top of the agitator you have a full load. If you add more clothes than that you are overloading and your problem will continue.

FL Code on whirlpool calypso


Flood Condition - overfill; excess water in the tub. With this condition the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no timeout. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is disconnected from the unit.

May be a sign of a pump motor problem - clog, jam or failure. There is a redesigned single piece pump/impeller assembly that you should upgrade to if the unit doesn't already have that kind, if it turns out the pump has failed.

You may be able to clear the fault by removing debris from the pump water tubes or impeller. I've had to disassemble from the bottom of an unplugged unit to get a draw string out of the impeller, or a sock out of the ball valve which reverses the flow of water when the pump changes direction.

Takes a little practice, but it can save big on repair bills if you are comfortable poking around underneath a drained washer. Problem is, when you have a FL condition, you may have to bail out the water or use a wet/dry vac to **** it out of the drain tube, to avoid a mess in the wash room.

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.

My whirlpool top loader won't agitate.


Ok, sorry it took so long to write.  You listed the washer as a Calypso, but it didnt look righ, so did some investigative work for you.  What your describing I believe, is that the agitator top half (or the auger as well them) is sitting still and the bottom half if moving.  During the wash cycle, the top half is just sitting still.  If this is wrong, please let me know.  If this is right, you have a sort of simple fix.  Remove the top cap of the auger, pry gently between the cap and the agitator, the plastic cap will come off.  When you remove the cap, you will see another cap (sometimes you do, sometimes you dont) it will be white or dirty clear in color if its there.  You can put your finger on the lips and lift it straight off.  Then you will see a cap with a bolt in the center.  Remove this bolt (7/16" with long extension).  the agitator dogs (Sears part #387091) 387091.jpg.  You should see these under that last cap tha had the bolt in it.  Remove the auger (just slide it up and off), remove the dog holding cap.  Remove the dogs, but be sure you remember the way they go back in.  Next is the tricky part.  Take the cap upside-down, and place it back in the auger.  Quickly turn it back over, making sure the ag dogs dont fall out of position (you will be hating me the first couple time, just keep at it), then, with a long pair of needle nose, place the bolt you removed back in the hole.  Take your extension with socket, hold the bolt firmly, and slide the auger back on to the top of the agitator.  Make sure the locks and stuff fit right between the two.  Tighten the bolt (just snug, DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN, you will split the cap).  If all goes well and right, you should be able to roll the auger one way and not the other.  If you need any further help, or need someone to yell at when the dogs keep falling out, give me a shout, and we'll help you along.  Good Luck!!!!!     Jim
