Hi,

Thank you for your question. It is concerning when the refrigerator is not functioning correctly.

The freezer evaporator fan motor circulated the cold air through the freezer and through the air baffle to the refrigerator. If the evaporator fan is running and the air baffle is adjusted so air is forced into the refrigerator, if you feel at the top of the refrigerator you could feel air coming through the registers. If you do not, I have sent some instructions to check the air baffle and the control paddle inside of the control panel.

Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply below this entry.

Q:

Kenmore Elite Calypso - How is it possible for the spanner nut to be outside of the inner wash plate and for the washer to still work?

A:

It seems as if this washer is giving you a bit of a headache. It is frustrating when you have to deal with an appliance that causes so much trouble. While you wait for an expert to respond, I have attached a couple links below that provide information on the OB error code. I hope all goes well.

That spanner nut secures the U-joint to the drive block. The basic theory of operation for the nutation is shown in the first image below. The other 3 images show the service procedure for that drive system. You have probably already seen that procedure according to your details. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components. You will normally have to lift your spanner wrench up slightly when tightening down that new spanner nut to keep from bottoming out on the U-joint.

If you decide to repair this problem, you can order parts from this page: Kenmore Elite Calypso Washer 110.22084100 Parts .

My personal recommendation is that you examine the washer and determine the parts that you will need before you decide to repair this washer. The U-joint kit alone is close to $200. You may need other parts as well. Even if you repair this failure in the drive system, you may have other failures fairly soon based on the age of the washer. In most situations, it will be more economical to replace the Calypso washer instead of repairing it.

If you decide to replace the washer, you can view current models of washing machines on the Sears.com website.

Lyle - Thank you for the diagrams and the tip on how to install the spanner nut. Before I order the parts, which as you say may make the repair too expensive, I would really like to understand what I am up against. The only spanner nut that I found inside the machine was in the bottom of the basket and completely corroded (see photo). There was no second spanner nut under the inner wash plate which had been bolted down. Why didn't the u-joint fall off the drive block? All the parts under the inner wash plate seemed normal, except the missing spanner nut. Also, on the Sears Direct website, the spanner nut wrench (14218862) is not available. Where can I buy a similar tool so that I can install the new parts? Thanks in advance, David

I looked at that photo and it appears to be a spanner nut at first glance but it is very corroded. There is a possibility that is a different component. If you found that part in the bottom of the spin basket before you took off that inner wash plate off, then that is probably not a spanner nut from the Calypso washer. Without being able to physically examine the washer, I don't think that I will be able to determine exactly where that part came from. Here is a link for a page that shows the spanner nut that you should find on that Calypso washer: Spanner Nut for Kenmore Elite Calypso Washer 110.22084100 . This information may help you determine whether that item at the bottom of the spin basket was the spanner nut. If it does not match, then you should find that spanner nut on the top of the drive block as shown in that second image. If you decide to repair the washer and you need a spanner wrench (part 14218862), then you can order it from a website such as Repair Clinic or you can perform a web search using Google or a similar search engine. I provided a link for that spanner wrench on Repair Clinic.com below this response. I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Lyle - Thanks for reviewing the photo. Now that I have the new spanner nut, I can see that the pieces that have been sliding around in my washer for years are not from my washer. The actual spanner nut is much smaller and still on the machine. I bought the spanner nut wrench at repair clinic.com (thank you for the link). However, the spanner nut seems to be on real tight. Is there a trick to loosening the nut? Do you need to block the u-joint? Is it OK to use penetrants to help loosen the nut? I tried tapping the spanner nut wrench with a rubber mallet as illustrated and it won't budge. Thanks, David

You can use some penetrans to help loosen that spanner nut. Let them soak in for at least a couple of hours. There is not really any other trick other than using the penetrants to loosen that nut. That spanner nut may have residue and corrosion built up on the threads. That will prevent it from breaking free. Brute force will normally be needed to break that spanner nut loose.
