20 Most Recent Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer Questions & Answers

i have the whirlpool top loader also. Was not quiet a year old, starts running at random by itself. They sent the repair man out got lectured that it was my fault (too much soap, washer is in basement, I need to call an electrician to check the wiring). Now it drips water into the inside of the washer.
I can see it will eventually be cheaper to replace than call the repairman back.... Won't be a Whirlpool

The motors in machines will easily shred any clothes caught between the inner and out drum. Then the bits end up in the filter or the pump. If the logic board feels that the machine is not pumping, it won't let it spin. See if the lower panel is removable and look for the filter. The pump can be anywhere in the base, but more often than not at the rear.

All of the manuals are online, and also videos showing how to check filters and replace pumps.

If it is the machine in the category you posted, the machine has no filter, and the pump is bottom right rear when viewed from the from. The manual is very detailed and gives trouble shooting tips. See page 35 below

Sorry to say... You may end up buying a new washing machine. Having said that, the problem may one or more of following...

a) Broken concrete balancing slabs in the machine
b) Broken shocks in machine bottom
c) Broken inner drum spindle. Need a new inner drum.
d) Drum bearing gone and drum had moved forward.

If it is C) or D) you will be looking for a parts and labor repair bill closer to a newer machine. We repair guys make a living in North America to the cost of living here. Machine is made in Mexico or China or Korea for low wage. Too bad.. You will have to give your money to another country to get a new machine.

whirlpool , simpson , westinghouse are all in the same manufacture house
you problem sounds like the tub suspension rod air dampers have failed
replace these rods and the tub is more stable
at the bottom end where the rods go through the mounts is a plastic cylinder that has a moving piston and spring inside ' the tip section of the plastic breaks free and then there is no air dampening effect
you will have to remove the top of the machine to get to the upper ends to replace the rods
cosy for 4 rods is around $90.00 AUD and can be got from the service agent spares
