Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Cycle running for hours

Every so often, my washer stalls out. At first, it seemed to happen only at the end of a cycle. Now it can happen at any point. The time displayed won't change for as long as 45 minutes. When the load finally does stop, no error code comes up. Usually, the clothes are also still dripping wet because they didn't get a decent rinse and spin.

I had Sears out to check on it, but they couldn't get the machine to repeat the problem. It happens sporadically, so sometimes I can get all my laundry done, sometimes only one load before it acts up again. The repair guy said everything he saw looked fine.

With the machine off using any button but power and cancel and press 2-5 seconds on then repeat 5 times, you will see 88 and if a code is stored it will flash or if F 2 comes on your panel is shot and cost 100 plus to change.

Washer fills on wash won't fill on rinse. Does on old washer and new washer. Checked and plumber said not the plumbing. Help PLEASE


It seems that you are out of cycle; meaning you are washing on rinse phase and the you are not getting water on rinse because you are at the end of the cycle. Try this; set the washer to the end of the rinse cycle, let it spin and stop. then wait 1/2 hour then start a wash you will be at the beginning of a new wash cycle..

How can you get a washer smelling good?


First of all this mainly happens when you use cold water washing, the plastic bowl(s) become slightly porous over time & the dirt from clothes adhere to the area between the inner & outer bowls.

To clean & remove smell.

1. Put washer on hot wash, high level & let it fill with HOT water.

2. Stop washer, put in an old towel.

3. Add a bucket of hot water (This allows the water level to be above the scum mark inside machine.

4. Add washing soda to the bowl (double the amount it says on the packet).

5. Start washer & allow to run to the end of the first wash cycle.

6. Stop washer & allow to sit for a few hours.

7. After the few hours, start washer & allow it to run the rest of the full cycle.

you can do the same procedure with Vinegar.

you may have to repeat procedure a few times.

TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING AGAIN YOU NEED TO DO THIS PROCEDURE ONCE EVERY 3 MONTHS.

The worst case scenario, you will have get a technician to remove the inner bowl & manually clean these areas.

Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to...


I would say the resettable thermostat has failed. There is a thermostat which senses the water temperature, and when it fails, it causes the dishwasher to run constant. Replace the thermostat underneath the dishwasher and that should cure problem. Part number is 154290204 (I know the number off by heart, that's how often it happens!)

Check you motor coupler by tilting machine back so you can get under. Look under machine, around where the center of the machine was. If you see a black powder, you most likely have a bad coupler. You may even find pieces of black rubber.
