Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Cycle running for hours

Every so often, my washer stalls out. At first, it seemed to happen only at the end of a cycle. Now it can happen at any point. The time displayed won't change for as long as 45 minutes. When the load finally does stop, no error code comes up. Usually, the clothes are also still dripping wet because they didn't get a decent rinse and spin.

I had Sears out to check on it, but they couldn't get the machine to repeat the problem. It happens sporadically, so sometimes I can get all my laundry done, sometimes only one load before it acts up again. The repair guy said everything he saw looked fine.

With the machine off using any button but power and cancel and press 2-5 seconds on then repeat 5 times, you will see 88 and if a code is stored it will flash or if F 2 comes on your panel is shot and cost 100 plus to change.

Washer will not run or complete a diagnostic.


1. The washing machine needs to be plugged in and in stand by mode with all indicators off.
2. Choose any one button on the washer's console except Power, Start, or Stop. Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds.
3. If the diagnostic test mode has been successfully entered, all of the indicator lights will glow for five seconds with 88 on the time display. (If it didn't work try #2 again One one thousand...Two one thousand...Three one thousand)
4. If there are any saved fault codes they will be displayed. If there are no save fault codes all indicator lights will turn off for a moment then back on with 88 displayed and the automatic diagnostic test mode will begin in five seconds.
5. If you are unable to enter the diagnostic test mode, press the power button and verify that the button you were trying to use operates properly to program the washer's cycle function. There may be something wrong with that function button. Find another button on the control that appears to work and try to enter the diagnostic mode with that button. You may also want to verify that the user interface has a good connection to the washing machine control board at the P11 terminal.

Note: Pressing the STOP or POWER button at any time to exit the washing machine's diagnostic mode.

I had OB error code. Please help me how to fix it Thank you


Hi there this is the Out of Balance Error code and can be a few things.
If its happened just the once don't worry about it - probably just a heavy uneven load.
If it happens again or repeatedly adjust the clothes in the drum and restart if it keeps happening then check that the unit is draining and that the drain hose is not clogged.
If everything is draining and the washer does this when empty you are going to have to start replacing parts so probably best to get someone in to have a look.

You can do a drain test yourself - Make sure there is water in the Washer then press (within 5 seconds so quite quickly)
Set Delay Time End of Cycle Signal Set Delay Time End of Cycle Signal
Display should read "dt"
then Press Jeans/Colors so display reads "t4"
Drain Test should commence

Control Locked


Locking controls
The Control Lock prevents unintended use of the washer. You
can also use the control lock feature to prevent unintended cycle
or option changes during a cycle. When CONTROL LOCKED is
lit, all buttons are disabled. You can lock the washer while it is
operating.

To lock the controls
Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds.
The CONTROL LOCKED status light glows.

To unlock the controls
Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds until the CONTROL LOCKED Status light turns off.

All of a suden the 20 amp circute breaker in the service panel was thrown. I only had the washer running on that circut. i HEARD A POPING SOUND WHEN THIS happened I thought it was the sound of the breaker...


Check you motor coupler by tilting machine back so you can get under. Look under machine, around where the center of the machine was. If you see a black powder, you most likely have a bad coupler. You may even find pieces of black rubber.

Timer Stalling


I would check the water hoses for twisting, make sure the water faucets are turned on all the way, and check the filters at the washer end of the hoses to make sure they are clean. I would also check the drain system to make sure it is clean and the machine is draining well.
