Question and Answers

Q:

Why is my calypso elite washer getting stuck in spin/drain cycle with 13 minutes remaining? No error codes..

A:

You did not indicate how long your allowing the washer to run when it appear to be stuck at 13 minutes. The time remaining is an estimated time and there will be times that it will sit and run and not count down. Based on your symptom it sounds like the washer is running a Suds Lock Detection and cleanup procedure at which time it's not going to count down. If you do not interrupt the cycle it should eventually display "SL".

Suds detection is done based on motor current ramp-up. This requires a 90-sec. duration for this step. If suds are detected, the suds cleanup algorithm runs, then the detection algorithm runs again. This is repeated up to 3 times. If the suds are not cleared by the end of the iterations, the unit remains in pause mode with an “SL� (Suds Locked) error code on the display.

The motor controller senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If a potential suds lock is detected, the control tries up to 3 times to clean out the unit with a mini-cycle. See Use and Care Guide for more information. “SL� is displayed if suds are detected but the unit is unable to clean out suds. This may indicate a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent or excessive suds. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Based on your symptom you may be using too much detergent or using non He detergent. Letting the washer sit allows the suds to turn back into liquid. The washer could also have a friction issue with the drive mechanism causing high current draw providing you are not using too much HE detergent or non HE detergent.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Frankie Beckwith: Based on your current issue it sounds like it may have friction issue with the spin shaft or u-joint assembly. A Calypso washer has many mechanical moving parts and your model washer should be diagnosed by a service technician with the knowledge and skills needed in order to repair your washer. You may even want to think about replacing the washer rather than having it repaired.
