Calypso washing machine (top loader)

I have problem with my machine making big pulls in my towels.

    I have the same problem with threads being pulled out on loop pile towels. Tried running on gentle cycle, but does the same thing. Just washed some brand new towels and they are all pulled out now. Plus most clothes and other washables get twisted into balls by this washer. Wouldn't recommend this washer unless the problem can be fixed.

Calypso stains load


Hi there
I wonder why "dark streaks" on white towels. I presume that you have made sure that there is no dirt flying around in the machine.
Try to let the machine go a circle -without any washing in it- just to see if the water takes color. There are also in the shops washing powder
that remove stains of different types.
Also powder for "only whites"
good luck

Is there a fix for the washer it's chewing my towels


This washer is known to eat some clothes.
I found a great big silk pillow case between tubs once:

Most of the damage is done in the beginning of the cycle directly after the brain has re-destributed the clothes. Any items of clothing with strings need not be washed in this machine or the strings will get into the pump:

Where do you locate the model number on a whirlpool calypso?


The model number on Whirlpool manufactured top loaders is usually printed on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid.

My Calypso washer beats up my clothes but doesn't clean them well. I have holes in my linens and all my towels have pulls in the terry.


I don't have the solution but I have the problem. I bought all new towels 2 years ago and they are all ruined.

the calypso washer is much older then 2 years. they stopped making them quite a few years ago. what you are seeing is how towels will come apart when washed with an aggressive washer. even expensive towels can be poorly sewn and will come apart when washed too hard. i might suggest you use the light cycle as it has a slower washing cycle speed. if you check your older and "better" towels are not doing the same thing as your new towels. i know its not fair but it is the way towels are now. you can try to remove the threads that are coming off your newer towels and then all should be ok, but there is nothing wrong with your washer just the way towels are now.

This could be an out of balance condition. When its happened to my washer, I rearrange the load if its large enough, and if its not, I find other items of like weight and add them to the load and start over. Calypso's are sensitive to fabric weight, so If you're washing towels, wash only towels and wash cloths. Make sure you put small items, like bras, panties, nighties, etc., in mesh bags and combine them with other light weight fabrics.

Have you checked the agitator? There may be sharp edges on the agitator blades. OR the towels may be getting stuck under the agitator and tub bottom. The agitator is supposed to suck the clothing down in the center and forcibly throw the clothing outwards against the tub. The cycle then repeats.
