Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My 6 year old Whirlpool Calypso washing machine was almost finished with the cycle, when it stopped -- with the error "CE" (Communications Error). I tried restarting it numerous times and the error repeats itself. I've also tried unplugging the machine, but I continue to get the error. Can you help explain what's happening and if there is anything I can do, besides call a repairman?? Thank you!

Calypso washer stops/runs every 5 - 30 seconds in the middle of any washing cycle. No error codes. It just stops and than runs again all the time and cannot finish any washing cycle. It is 8 years...

I had the same problem. The washer control board has an intermittent failure. If you unplug power for about 30 minutes then plug it back in you will get a PF code (power failure). Ignore this code and push start again. It may run till it finishes the cycle or it may start cycling again right away. A new board costs about $180 at repairclinic.com

Code ce shows we have tried to reset and the code CE come up each time

"CE" Communications Error If there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller, "CE" flashes and the unit beeps once.
Some common causes of "CE" errors include:
·Conformal coating on serial communications pins between the machine controller and motor controller. After disconnecting power to the unit, try scraping this coating off the pins.
· Check the resistance values between the serial communications pins with the connectors in place. Make sure the harness does not have a bad connection.
· Check the quick disconnect at the motor terminal. The drive motor must be hooked up properly or a "CE" error will occur.
· Drive motor thermal protector has opened.
·Motor controller is not powered or fuse has opened. Replace motor controller.

when you start the cycle and does it beep once and then show "CE" .. There is a communication error between the machine control and motor control.

There may be some Conformal coating on serial communications pins between the machine controller and motor controller.

After disconnecting power to the unit, try scraping this coating off the pins.

Check the resistance values between the serial communications pins with the connectors in place. Make sure the harness does not have a bad connection. Check the quick disconnect at the motor terminal. The drive motor must be hooked up properly or a CE error will occur. maybe the Drive motor thermal protector has opened.

Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K washer CE error

Communications Error. If there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller, "CE" flashes and the unit beeps once. All of the possible causes require service of some kind. You can google for the service manual of your model # if you are so inclined to try self-service repairs but you need to be comfortable working with electronic circuit boards (behind the control panel). I would not attempt any of this kind of repair unless you had some experience, for you can make the problem worse if you do not handle the electronics correctly.

My whirpol calypso washer don't running, appear fl and ce

"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 lock 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.
