Kenmore Elite Calypso won't drain

I heve ths Kenmore Elite clothes washer that has worked fine for two years. Today it did not drain when the cycle was finished. It is showing the code CA and I do not have the book anymore. Does anyone know what this might mean? It is also leaking water on the floor. Thank you for any assistance you are able to provide. My kenmore Elite Calypso shows the code CL and the clothes do not spin out completely. I also see water drainage on the floor. This especially happens when It is a small load of clothes, but has also happened when it is a full load.

The most likely thing to cause the code and the leak is the water pump. If the shaft seal on the pump leaks, the water gets into the drain pump motor and shorts it out. The code is telling you there is a high current/amp draw at one of the motors.
You can see if the pump is leaking by tilting the machine back, removing the screws that hold the bottom to the front edge of the machine and looking at the pump. If the pump is leaking, you will need a new pump and possibly a new motor control board.
Post back if you need further instructions and we will walk through the repair.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Calypso won't drain

"CA" is an Average Current Limit alarm or error. It's an indication that the you may have a problem with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Overloading the washer can cause this problem. Press Pause/Cancel to clear the alarm. If the problem persists, then I would suspect one of the causes that were mentioned. I hope this may help you.

Error f35? What's the fix?


They can and fixed my washer today! The fix was the replacement of a switch. The item # was W10156252 for my washer. It is called a switch-WL. Item # may be different for your model. I was getting SUDS and F35 errors. To install it you just remove the top part of the washer and should be located at the upper right-hand side, attached to a black hose. The switch has a small computer board. The price of the swith is around $130. Fortunately I bought a 3-year warranty on my washer.

Machine will not switch to drain and spin cycle


If you take the front off in the lower right you will find a pump motor that controls the drain flow. This may defective. Use a shop vac to empty the water in washer if needs be. But remove and test this pump.

Kenmore elite washer problem


sounds as if you have a drain issue, most common cause of fault is theres something stuck in the pump housing. remove the lower acess panel(3 screws along the bottom of the forn of unit) youll gain acess to the pump housing, remove the large cover to the "button trap" by uncscrewimg the cover, it will be righthin front of you in the center of machine when cover removed, im sure youll find your blockage within there

After the complete wash cycle is finished, the clothes are still soaking wet sometimes. This is not an every load problem.
