Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

We have a whirlpool calypso washer that has been a nightmare. We purchased it at the "high asking price" because we trusted whirlpool and thought it would be a great purchase. Our son bought one right after us at our recommendation. Wrong - there's is a nightmare, too. The problem we are having - it has been not filling properly for a while and clothes would come out partly dry at the end of the cycle. Now it sounds like it is filling, but it doesn't. It just hums. Do you recommend getting rid of it? It's agrivating because whirlpool knows that it produced a piece of junk, but they don't want to do anything about it. Can you help please

It sounds like it may be your mixing valve (water valve). It is a solenoid activated valve.

I want to buy a used calypso washer that needs a repair, how much


$300 plus. If you are handy, or you know someone who is, It is a fairly easy fix. The pump assy. might run you around $100. I fix my own about once a year. Strands of clothing and lint get wrapped around the pump propeller, causing the error before it burns up. With all the other probs associated with calypso's, I wouldn't touch it (maybe if it was free?).

Sorry to say but they are right. The Calypso washer was a horible design given to whirlpool from maytag. I would suggest you go buy new machine. Buy someting that looks simple and easy to use. The more complicated the unit the more problems you will have down the road.

Here is a link for the error codes on calypso, in most cases it is a blown fuse on the motor control board so I would first check that. Hope this is helpful and please remember to rate this solution.
