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.

    There may also be a blown capacitor(s) on either board. Look for any bulging capacitors and replace while you have the boards out. Also is is likely that corrosion on some solder joints is the original cause of the component failure. you may replace the blown components and the washer will work but still give failure codes. I had to resolder a few connections before the washer was completely repaired. so look carefully for dull joints and corrosion under the waterproof coating, and don't forget to re-coat with something that will water proof where you have repaired. I used a a thin coating of very hot glue to cover any exposed electrical joints. Good luck with your repairs.

    thanks very informative as I am ready to replace fuse so may as well check all solder joints while already have board out. How do I test the relay??

I had the same code + motor and pump did not work. I run couple of tests as described in service manual that is attached to the inside of front panel and I have detected that there was no 120 voltage going out from control board to the motor board. I have removed the control board and I have noticed that rely on the board is not soldered properly (high current line). I have re-soldered rely and my washer is back in business. Even if rely was bad - the price for it (T9AS1D12-12) is about $3 and seems to be easy to replace with some minimal skills (and soldering gun). The price for a new board is about $130 at Sears parts department. I think I save at least $300 for service call.

BTW. Many people had problems with this washer - but for me it worked just fine for 8 year with fairly heavy usage. It is nicely built and on board diagnostic is very good. So if you have some mechanical/electrical skill it is good to try service procedures before calling service.

Washer won't start. shows CE on the display

That is a communication error between the control and the motor board.
Could be a corrosive buildup on the ribbon connectors and/or a bad wire or loose wire.
You can unplug the machine and trace all wires to look for a pinched or loose wire.
Unplug and clean all wire connections.
If that does not work it will be a bad motor controller.

Kenmore elite calypso 24082 error code CE

On the ccu, the board on the right is usually the culprit, I have recently replaced one with that same error but I would first unplug it and remove and re connect each plug on the board looking for dark connections or dialysis, corrosion. If not fully insert each plug and try again.
