Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

Whirlpool Calypso Wash Motion machine is 3 years old and the board is frozen. Model #GVW9959KQ2. We have had the board changed and still frozen. This is the 3rd problem with this machine and no one can help. Paid $765 for it and have already paid $300 for repairs.

We ordered a new computer panel for the machine but the machine still does not work. The panel comes on when the machine is plugged in but stuck on the same cycle, estimate time of wash, etc. Now Whirlpool says it's probably the touch pad but that is an additional $127 plus the $122 for the authorized technician. We are already out $300. It is obviously a lemon.

I am just trying to figure out how many cubic feet my whirlpool calypso washer (model gvw9959kq2) is? Thank you.


The 3.5 cu ft Whirlpool GVW9959K is a unique washing machine that is Energy Star Qualified. It features the Calypso technology which helps prevent piling, shrinking and provides excellent stain removal. Save money and energy (up to $100 in utility bill savings) with this Energy Star Quiet Wash washer. The multiple cycles which include the hand washables cycle, the wool cycle, the bulky items cycle, give you the many options you need in determining the right cycle for your laundry. Automatic water level settings, multiple wash/spin speed combinations, 5 wash/rinse temperature combinations, and stainless steel wash basket with limited lifetime warranty are just some of the many reasons why this washer is the best choice for you. However the washer has a quirkiness also. They tend eat garments from time to time and take a dump when overdosed on detergent. The basket is suspended on four rods and is easily removed for servicing the motor and pump. The pump has a motor mounted on it. The whole time the washer is in motion water is continually poured over the clothes. It has a heck of a spin cycle at the end. Theory of operation, how to operate, repair and diagnose them fault does is HERE in the service manual.

My whirlpool calypso washer just quit working no codes no power just dead. GVW9959KQ2


Won't Power Up
  • 120VAC electrical supply.
Check voltage supply to washer.
  • Open AC cord.
Check for voltage at the power cord connection to the line filter.
  • Line filter open.
Check voltage into and out of line filter.
  • Machine control board open.
With the washer off but connected to the AC outlet, measure the AC voltage between Pins 4 and 2 at connector P16.

Control board malfunctioning.


You can try tripping the breaker a half dozen times or so, or else leave it unplugged/without power for a couple days. Once it is plugged back in you may have to leave it overnight and then try it, but that almost always revives it. I notice the problem when I don't use the washer/dryer once a week or don't push any buttons during that time to activate it in some way. Problem seems to occur more frequently in the winter when house is cooler.

Whirlpool Calypso Mod: GVW9959KQ2, stops and shows "ob" as code for fast final spin. Also making high pitched whine during wash cycle. Appl svce place has suggested bearing or xmission. Any possible...


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.

Whirlpool Calypso - Will not start


You ever hear of dog years? Well Calypso follows those same guidelines. So your machine is 35 years old. These are the Edsel's of washing machine fame. I had a Calypso for 6 1/2 years. 3 pumps, numerous circuit boards, drive motors, phone calls and arguements with Whirlpool, along with machine downtime. I finally junked it and bought a Whirlpool Duet 9200 HT (get the made in Germany machine). A world of difference in wash quality. Fresh smelling unballed clean clothes. The Calypso was removed from the market and the subject of a class action lawsuit. Just Google it and start reading. Get comfortable first. There's a lot to read.
