I have a Kenmore Elite Calypso It Displayed C1 then blacked out


Instantaneous Current ("CI") spike. Overloaded washer or a problem with the motor windings (drive motor, not pump motor, thermal protector or motor controller. Wash less articles next time. If the problem does not recur, overloaded washer might have been the problem. If it continues to occur, might need a service call unless you like to do it yourself (get a service manual - google the model #).

Dear usaguitarman Welcome to fixya.com
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, washer fills with water. then the motor overload protector starts clicking
in and out.and there is a burning smell. I am able to spin the water back out.
The belt needs to be replaced but I don't know if that could cause my problem.

Yes I believe the belt could be the problem!
That is more than likely the burning smell!

Change to belt.!
While your at it, unplug the machine for 5 minutes or more and then it will reset the system too!

Let me know how wonderful it performs after these repairs!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i believe you will be fine!
Bless You,
Huuum

I have a ld850sa03 washing machine that only agitates in one direction maybe gearbox failure,if so where do i get one,can you help


hi In most cases, motor malfunctions should be handled by a professional; do not try to fix the motor yourself. If the motor is a universal motor, however, you can change worn carbon brushes when sparking occurs, as detailed in the how to repair appliances article. To save the expense of a service call, remove the motor from the washer and take it to a professional service person, then reinstall the repaired or new motor yourself. To access the motor, remove the back panel of the washer. The motor is mounted on an adjustable bracket.
There is one other motor problem you can repair yourself. Washer motors usually have an overload protector clipped to the motor. When this component fails, the motor won't work. Before you take the motor in for service, test the protector with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect one electrical lead wire to the protector and clip one probe of the VOM to each protector terminal. The meter should read zero. If the needle jumps higher, the protector is faulty and should be replaced. Pry up the protector with a screwdriver and replace it with a new one made specifically for the motor or washer. Connect the new protector the same way the old one was connected.it is not gear box.............

Could be a bad overload protector in the motor. Some machines have a circuit where the machine rapid advances to the end when the motor overload protector kicks in. This would also make sense that it started happening in the Spin cycle when the motor draws the highest voltage.

Kenmore washer model # 110.24086200


The C1 code indicates the "instantaneous current limit" trip. This signifies problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, motor controller. Overloading the machine will cause high amps and trip the unit. Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a current spike of 26 amps instantly at the motor windings in which the motor overload trips. check bearings for lubrication - or as stated above overloading the washer.
