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.

Washers are more advanced and stylish than ever before. When you're buying a washer, look for features that make washing easier and more efficient, less costly, and kinder to fabrics. Thanks to advances in technology, it's all possible - and our washer buying guide shows you how.

Washer Types
Feature options, capacity, energy use and style are all factors to consider when deciding between a front- or top-loading washer.
oth top-loading and front-loading washing machines will do a good job of cleaning your clothes. The most significant differences between these types of washers are capacity, energy efficiency, water use, feature options, and style.

Top-loading machines

Traditional top-loading washing machines are available in a wide assortment of models, price ranges and styles. The most basic top-loading washers perform very well and are generally a good value for a no-frills, clean wash. Other top-loaders offer more cycle and temperature selections, spin speeds, and fabric care extras as they increase in price. Overall, top-loading washers are generally less expensive to purchase than front-loading machines, but are slightly more costly to run because they use more water and electricity.

Most top-loaders fill the tub with enough water to cover the clothing, then agitate them to get the clothing clean. Some manufacturers now offer high-efficiency top-loading washers using a number of different technologies. One such technology is the Whirlpool® Calypso® wash plate. Instead of agitating fabrics to get them clean, the wash plate moves them through a shower of concentrated detergent and water. The action is gentler on fabrics; it's designed to provide better cleaning with far less stress to garment fibers. And with the agitator out of the way, the washer has more room to clean bulky items such as comforters and rugs.

Standard capacity for a top-loading washing machine is 12 to 16 pounds per load. The Calypso wash plate model can hold up to 18 pounds of laundry (think the equivalent of 16 pairs of jeans).

Here is a link to some Whirlpool washers for you to look over.

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.
