Hello,the drain hose COULD be plugged. Mine had the PUMP INLET plugged with lint/dimes.
That's right, three dimes and some lint kept the water from getting to the pump.
For even an inexperienced handiman, the fix is easy. 1) DISCONNECT THE POWER !!! 2) Open access door in middle of back panel - 4 screws
3) Disconnect pump inlet hose - pump is on the floor/left as you face
the inside from the rear. Have lots of towels handy as water will run
out of the tub. This is a simple hose clamp - you dont have to remove
the clamp - only loosen enough to remove the hose.
You can tell the inlet hose as it comes from the tub. The outlet hose exits the pump and exits the machine.
4) stick your finger into the pump inlet and feel for any debris. I
have found much lint and small coins. Somehow dimes get into the pump
inlet and make perfect check valves preventing water from getting into
the pump. Remove the debris.
5) reconnect the pump inlet hose 6) replace back access panel. 7) plug back in and test. If it does not drain now, you may need a new pump.
For even a handyman with four thumbs, this procedure should take less than 30 minutes ! Thanks
The washer filled with too much water, causing a switch to trip. Then everything stops. It tries to drain during FL but if it can't drain, the washer powers down.Choose Drain & Spin to let the washer drain. Then you have to take the washer apart. Fix the problem. I personally can't tell you what to do because I don't own a Calypso.

The drain pump had $0.86 in it (three quaters, a dime and a penny), a gaurdian angel medal and a sock stuck in the pump inlet. It was easy to fix by removing the lower fromt cover (two srews), taking off the spring clamp on the hose at the front of the pump and removing the rubber trap hose thingy.
forgot to include the most important step! We got the dimes out after wadding up a small piece of duct tape, sticky side out, and using locking forceps to grip the tape while fishing out the dimes from the drain pump.
turn the tub on the inside if it feels ruff as it turns and makes a noise then most likely you have a bad rear bearing, if it is smooth in turning and no noise then turn to drain or spin possibly something stuck in drain pump. the drain pump will start up first if you hear the noise then the drain pump is accessed from the front lower cover, if its the rear bearing probably not worth fixing about 400.00 in parts and alot of work.
Does the washer make noise while the drum is spinning? Or, is making noise when the drain pump comes on? If the drum is spinning and making a lot of noise the rear bearings are usually bad. They cannot be removed from the drum, however. The entire outer tub shell has to be replaced, because the bearings are molded into the plastic. If it's only making noise when the drain pump comes on during the drain cycle, your drain pump may be obstructed in some way, or the pump itself could be bad. Getting inside the machine to check either component is not easy, because the door has to be removed, along with the front panel, rubber door seal, and top of the machine. Sorry, this may not be an easy fix for you. But, I hope I can lead you in the right direction. Let me know if you need further guidance.
