Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
I have a Kenmore Elite Calypso and I have had several occurances where it does not spin out complete and it is not over loaded or unbalanced.
A code of LF appears and the clothes are still dripping water.
I have to go to the shortest cycle on the panel which is for 22 minutes and then add extended spin cycle in order for it to work.
There is no "Spin cycle" unfortunately on this type of washer and it makes you go thru an entire wash sequence all over in order to spin.
Any idea what this code means?? I'm not having any luck with any manual sites or by any other means.
This is where to find the manual. When you get to it, it tells you that LF is for long fill which means it is taking longer than ten minutes to fill with water so it shuts off and displays the error code.
Bottom Line : Check your water pressure.

I believe it is long fill but if your interested there is two latches left and right of the top front at the horizontal seam right below the lid deck, use a putty knife and slide center to side to find, carefully press and it will go in then lift the lid and repeat on other side, the lid lifts exposing the washtub. On the front panel is 4 screws now exposed to remove, this front panel has your tech manual and it may have the codes and tests to correct the problem or find the solution.
