What to do with a dead Calypso

4 posts in this topic

I have the misfortune of owning a Calypso washer (the Kenmore version). In November, it broke down for the 3rd time. That was when I found out about the class action lawsuit against Whirlpool. However, I was able to repair it myself for about $300 with help from the web (including fixitnow.com). I thought it was as good as new.

Then, in February, it broke again. Now I have a broken but only 2.5 year old Calypso that is practically new, except for the fact that it won't turn on. I believe it needs only a new control board and/or control panel, but I am now unwilling to toss more good money after bad.

I have since bought a new washer, and I now have a broken Calypso sitting in my garage. I payed a lot of money for it 2.5 years ago, and I just replaced most of the mechanical stuff in November, so I'm hoping it is worth something to someone.

Any ideas on where I can sell this washer for more than scrap? Thanks very much.

Do not wish this thing on anybody, please....just see if some repair shop in your area might take it for the parts and give you a few $$$  for it after you tell them what parts are new....;)
