Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

The washer begins any cycle - fills, agitates briefly then gives warning tone and flashes what looks like F51 - If I push the power button it drains and shuts down. Thanks, R. Ashbaugh

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

    Top loaing washer fills then mostly empties repeatedly


    Check you drain line. It may be too low or the air gap is blocked at the drain pipe.
    A test is remove the drain pipe from the wall drain. Hold it up high and turn the washer on to fill.
    If it fills and stops, then starts agitation. Repair the drain hose.

    Hotpoint washer fills begins to agitate then refills continously.


    Very likely your drain hose is set too low. You can solve this with a standpipe or a kit called a siphon break.

    He2 washer flashing code f51


    I agree with sissssss. For my Maytag's F51 error, there were socks lodged between the inner and outer tubs, causing too much friction on the motor. This led to the computer reading poor performance of the motor. Please consider trying this easy fix before calling out service personnel or replacing circuitry!!! I spent hours under the machine messing with the motor and circuitry until I looked up at the translucent tub and saw stray laundry stuck where it shouldn't be.
    * Open the lid. Turn the bottom agitator by hand. Give it a good push. It should continue rolling on for several turns. If not, there is laundry stuck between the tubs causing friction.
    1.) Pry open the metal case lid. Take two flat head screwdrivers and wedge them in the crack about 6 inches from the left corner, and use them as levers to pop the metal lid, then the right corner. Lift up the metal case lid and lean it against the wall.
    2.) Take off the plastic ring that bridges the gap between the inner and outer tubs. There are many little catches all around the perimeter of the outer tub that hold on this plastic ring. Find those catches and put outward and upward pressure on those to release the catches.
    3.) Look down in the gap between the inner and outer tubs for stray laundry. I used a retrieval tool (Lowes 403255) below to grab the socks. There were especially several socks in the back right corner near the pump inlet. Run the drain and spin cycle and look again. There were more strays hiding that I nabbed the second time!
    4.) Snap the inner cover on by lining up all those catches and seating them. Snap the big metal lid back on by aligning and giving a good downward thump. Run the machine and be the hero, and don't be too mean to your wife about tossing those socks down in the crevices. Half hour and $3 for the retrieval tool is far better than all that RPS mess.
