    The washer started beeping while turned off, it keeps saying 44 minutes but will not start. We did unplug it for 48 hours still it came back the same way.

    I keep getting a C1 code and have to restart the machine. I then get stuck on it going from 7 to 8 minutes left. It will not spin the water out of the clothes. We had a service repair man from Sears to look at it. He said it could be the drain hose was too far down in the drain. He charged me 59.00 and left. It still displays C1 and ob at the 7 to 8 minute mark. The clothes will not spin dry. The machine is only 3 years old.

    We have the same problem. It is stuck at 7 or so minutes, flases some codes and left me with a foot of water in the machine WHICH FINALLY drained by itself all over our floor on Christmas Eve night. ANY SUGGESTIONS???

    I read another thread that said there was a class action lawsuit against this machine. Is this true and can someone point me to where I need to go? I tried to google it and nothing.

    I'm having the same problem. It stops at 8 min. I maneged to get it down to 4 minutes somehow. but the behavior is still the same. It doesn't spin I detached the lid swicth and held it with my thumb so I could see what it was doing. it seemed to make an attempt to spin and wouldn't, like it's too weak to turn. I did this with no clothes in the machine.What could it be ?

    I am having the same problem. My Calypso is getting stuck on 7 minutes. I was trying to wash a blanket when it went on the fritz, so it's still in there with about a foot of water on it. When I turn the washer on, it says 7 minutes and agitates, but the timer never goes down and it continues to agitate...forever! Water started leaking out of the bottom of it somewhere all over my basement, yet every time I open the lid, it appears to have the same amount of water in it. I know it is not continuously filling because I would hear it, but the water all over the floor has to be coming from SOMEWHERE. I am calling a repairman today...

Sounds like you have a bad timer or check your belts

Washer status says 8 mins of rinse left even though the cycle is finished. It keeps beeping and power cycle doesn't clear the message

It is trying to fix an oversudsing situation. If the control detects moor overamping due to suds lock it keeps trying to remedy it. This washer is a water saver and a soap saver. Add too much to the mix and it will have a cow. Here is your manual

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.

I have a calypso washer it seems to be stuck on the heavy cycle no matter what i dothe display says 53 mins it wont do anyhting wont start if i hit the button wont let me choose another cycle like quick...

I just ran into a similar problem. Ours was stuck on Normal with 42 min. Started beeping every couple minutes last night after bad rain storm. Couldn't get it to stop. it would turn off if I hit stop and a couple minutes kater (like 2min) it would come on by itself. Left it unplugged overnight until about 6:00pm. Plugged it back in and it wnt right back to the normal mode after about 2min. HOWEVER, I keft it sit with the lid open and it beeped every couple minutes for a while then suddenly stopped. I checjked it and it is off, hasn't come back on. I haven't tried to run a load through it yet, so I don't know if it is fixed or not..

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.

My Whirlpool Caylpso display is stuck and will not start

You can try unplugging it for at least two hours and then re-starting. Since I moved my washer starting acting up getting stuck at various points in a cycle--sometimes 19 minutes, or 12, or 33, or rhyme or reason, no specific point in the cycle. My mover is an appliance repair guy and told me to do the unplug thing and it has worked multiple times--not that I enjoy having this happen over and over, but he told me Sears would charge a minimum of 100 to show up at the door, and I don't have that right now. Anyhow, it has only worked if I left it alone at least 2 hours---my new strategy is going to be unplugging it daily...I love the washer but this is nutty.

Whirlpool Calypso Cycle Problem

The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.
