Make sure the outlet has power, if it does then you have a control board issue or possible wiring problem inspect/test control board input voltages

My whirlpool was stuck on the Lock switch. we used he cancel button but now it wont run. the fill light come on but nothing happens. I have tried unplugging it to reset the panel, but nothing helps


Double check there is power at the outlet. If no power, check circuit breaker box. If the circuit breaker "pops" after resetting, you have a serious electrical problem in the washer or wireing to the washer. Consider the age of your washer, cost to find a lightly used working replacement, vs the cost for repair tech. Ask for an approximate repair visit cost.

Need APPROXIMATE water consumption on 10 yr old Whirlpool washer


Hello. The older top load washers use up to 60 gallons of water per load. That said, also check your toilets as a leaking toilet can use tens of thousands of gallons per year. Here is a link that explains how to check your toilets and other items for leaks. Regards, Joe
ps - kindly rate my answer as helpful. thanks.

Control board malfunctioning.


You can try tripping the breaker a half dozen times or so, or else leave it unplugged/without power for a couple days. Once it is plugged back in you may have to leave it overnight and then try it, but that almost always revives it. I notice the problem when I don't use the washer/dryer once a week or don't push any buttons during that time to activate it in some way. Problem seems to occur more frequently in the winter when house is cooler.

I have a calypso washer it seems to be stuck on the ultra hand wash. the only button that does anythinbg is stop. i have unplugged it time and again, but nothing changes


keep it unplugged for at least a half hour -- if nothing solves it you probably need a new board. Ours is going the sidewalk on junk day because of this. Have had it 7 years and more than a dozen service calls on it. Have had the board replaced 2x and the pump 4x -- other calls were techs trying to figure it all out. Garbage machine.

We went camping for 2 days came home and the calypso washing machine won't start. We ran a load the day we left with no problems. The outlet works fine, we even tried plugging it into another outlet just...


The same happened with my Sears Calypso machine. The common problem is the front display panel. If you are able to find one at a very good price, post it here.

the calypso washer is much older then 2 years. they stopped making them quite a few years ago. what you are seeing is how towels will come apart when washed with an aggressive washer. even expensive towels can be poorly sewn and will come apart when washed too hard. i might suggest you use the light cycle as it has a slower washing cycle speed. if you check your older and "better" towels are not doing the same thing as your new towels. i know its not fair but it is the way towels are now. you can try to remove the threads that are coming off your newer towels and then all should be ok, but there is nothing wrong with your washer just the way towels are now.

Whirlpool Calypso - Will not start


You ever hear of dog years? Well Calypso follows those same guidelines. So your machine is 35 years old. These are the Edsel's of washing machine fame. I had a Calypso for 6 1/2 years. 3 pumps, numerous circuit boards, drive motors, phone calls and arguements with Whirlpool, along with machine downtime. I finally junked it and bought a Whirlpool Duet 9200 HT (get the made in Germany machine). A world of difference in wash quality. Fresh smelling unballed clean clothes. The Calypso was removed from the market and the subject of a class action lawsuit. Just Google it and start reading. Get comfortable first. There's a lot to read.

Have you checked the agitator? There may be sharp edges on the agitator blades. OR the towels may be getting stuck under the agitator and tub bottom. The agitator is supposed to suck the clothing down in the center and forcibly throw the clothing outwards against the tub. The cycle then repeats.
