Kenmore Elite Calypso won't drain

I heve ths Kenmore Elite clothes washer that has worked fine for two years. Today it did not drain when the cycle was finished. It is showing the code CA and I do not have the book anymore. Does anyone know what this might mean? It is also leaking water on the floor. Thank you for any assistance you are able to provide. My kenmore Elite Calypso shows the code CL and the clothes do not spin out completely. I also see water drainage on the floor. This especially happens when It is a small load of clothes, but has also happened when it is a full load. When it goes into the rinse cycle, it will not drain. It appears to be frozen and I get load type error codes. I need to get to the pump to check in that area. How do I remove the front panel?

    GE Spacemaker Washer won't drain & gives Error code "CL". Prior to this happening, it sounded like ball bearings were in the pump impeller (if the pump has an impeller) making very loud sharp noises against the impeller.

CL or CA is an over amp draw most likely caused by the motor thermal protector or motor controller It can be caused by too large of a load try to press "STOP/CANCEL" to clear if the problem returns you will need to get inside the unit

My kenmore elite calypso washer won't fill up enough to get clothes completely wet.


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Machine will not switch to drain and spin cycle


If you take the front off in the lower right you will find a pump motor that controls the drain flow. This may defective. Use a shop vac to empty the water in washer if needs be. But remove and test this pump.

Kenmore Elite calypso 21086 leaves dirt streaks on clothes


Run the hottest & fullest cycle possible - without a load - and add a grease remover - like goo-gone. Fatty tissues build up inside the tub - and can be released on hot cycles if HOT wasn't used very often.

It is recommended to run a HOT load every 2 weeks or so to avoid these buildups and staining of clothes.

Kenmore Elite flashing codes.


ob means out of balance and ld means lid not closed. so i would guess that you have a washer that is not draining or just needs the clothes moved around.
if you have a plugged pump it will do the same thing. make sure the pump will drain properly and then try it again. if it still goes out then try it with no clothes. that way you know its not hte clothes causing the problem.
recheck the pump and hoses. be sure it will drain the full tub or it wont work right.

After the complete wash cycle is finished, the clothes are still soaking wet sometimes. This is not an every load problem.

Kenmore Elite Calypso won't drain


The most likely thing to cause the code and the leak is the water pump. If the shaft seal on the pump leaks, the water gets into the drain pump motor and shorts it out. The code is telling you there is a high current/amp draw at one of the motors.
You can see if the pump is leaking by tilting the machine back, removing the screws that hold the bottom to the front edge of the machine and looking at the pump. If the pump is leaking, you will need a new pump and possibly a new motor control board.
Post back if you need further instructions and we will walk through the repair.

"CA" is an Average Current Limit alarm or error. It's an indication that the you may have a problem with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Overloading the washer can cause this problem. Press Pause/Cancel to clear the alarm. If the problem persists, then I would suspect one of the causes that were mentioned. I hope this may help you.
