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.

WHAT IS THE SIZE OF MY WHIRLPOOL WASHER? model number LXR9245EQ2


We have the same model. We plan to purchase a replacement washer, and tank size is a major factor.

Machine manuals are available at www.whirlpool.com. It's great Whirlpool has the docs available online, but there was no indication of tank volume for this model found in the manuals: Parts, User, Instructions.

I decided to figure it out by filling the washing machine tank manually counting the number gallons of water dumped in. I managed to dump in 23 gallons before risking overflow. I don't recommend this approach since the specified water level limit for the tank assembly may be lower than the perceived water level limit. This volume test was performed on a machine that's being disposed.


Google says 1 US gallon is equivalent to approximately 0.1337 cubic feet. Applying this ratio to the number of gallons poured in, the volume is 3.08 cubic feet. If 24 gallons, then 3.21 cubic feet.

I'm sure the tank is not 4.0 cubic feet since that would have required another 7 gallons of water, beyond the 23 already poured in, making a mess on the floor, and potentially wetting machine wiring and other hardware that should remain dry. Even if we account for the space occupied by the agitator, it's unlikely an additional 7 gallons of water could be added without significant overflow.

4.0 cubic feet is approximately 30 gallons.

We're going on the assumption our LXR9245EQ2 washer is a 3.2 CF machine.

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.

Hello, RE a 1980 Kenmore 20821 Large capacity washer 1) the machine does not extract fully. I have tightened the belt which was loose but that has not corrected the problems. Also, I would like to know...


I would you recommend you make a burial date for that machine. The best ones out right now are whirlpool, or one of their models like roper etc... just get the standard models. I do not recommend front load models. This goes the same for the Fridge. The better one out is whirlpool, maytag and the other models are having a bad compressor issues... let me know if i can be more assist to you.
