Whirlpool Calypso Washing Machine
Posted 06 June 2005 - 01:30 PM
I tried calling Whirlpool and they were useless! I got more help from the internet! So I'm hoping someone has had this experience or can walk me through this before paying someone to come out and fix this. I just can't believe that it was working fine last night and this morning, wondering what could have happened between now and then?
Any help would be appreciated?

Well, that's the problem, the model number that is, the girl from Whirlpool asked me for it too but it is not on the machine. It appears at one time it was but the sticky paper thingy where it was has come off. I only have a serial number, would that help? In the meantime, let me go and unplug it for 2 minutes. I have just tried to unplug it and replug it in and it didn't work but maybe I didn't leave it out long enough. Let me try again.

Like I said, I do not see the model number on the machine but I do have what appears to be the serial number which is: SM 8281021 Rev. A
The name of the washing machine is Whirlpool Calypso Wash Motion with Catalyst
Does that help any?

There was an issue with these when they first came out where this error was appearing beacuse the coating used on the circuit boards was also getting on to the connector pins. Start by checking all connectors on/between the boards and the motor.

Now can you tell me where this harness is? I'm not sure where to look? Thanks again for your help, I never knew there was a place like this that I could ask questions and get answers.
What I don't understand is that it's been working all yesterday and this morning and then all of a sudden? Oh no, if it was a board, what do those run if you even know?
But, yes, if you could tell me where this harness is and the area I need to look at then that will help me a great deal.

I just got off the phone with a repair guy and he was telling me that digital machines are not as easy to fix as your regular machines. He wanted to schedule for his son to come out and fix it but told me that he wanted to block off alot of time so he wouldn't be rushed but said he couldn't come until Wednesday and I really need someone like now if I can't figure this out on my own.
So, he seemed disappointed and remarked to me that to make sure, if I did get someone else to come out and look at it that they were familiar with digital machines or otherwise, I would end up wasting alot of money.

Okay, so what I asked before, is that correct? Is the "harness" the back cover that's on the washing machine? Is this the one that I would remove? is it in the back of the machine or underneth or in the front, if i'm facing it?
