Whirlpool Calypso Washer C1 Error Code
« on: October 12, 2011, 08:52:28 PM »
I have a Whirlpool Calypso Washer - Model # GVW9959KQ2 that keeps giving me a C1 Error Code. I've replaced both the Machine Control Board and Motor Control Board along with the new style water pump and pump motor. Thought maybe this would fix the problem.......I guessed wrong, so i ran the diagnostics and the 99 second count down got down to like 95 seconds and C1 popped up. Can't figure this one out. I guess my next move is to replace the Drive Motor (Luckily I have a second hand Calyspo for spare parts). Does anyone have any clue where to go from here? Thank You!

C1 is a current limit error ... problem with the motor controller, thermos protector or Motor   ... press cancel.. should clear put an amp probe on the motor and start again ... check your motor for drawing too much amps...
Check the Basics first!!! Read the Manual !!!Buy the tech a Beer!!!

Is it possible I got a bad Brand New Board? I've replaced the pump, pump motor, motor controller board, machine board and replaced the motor with a used motor still getting the C1 Error?

Not a C-1 a C I. Current overloading. You have an object between tubs. I found a big old silk pillowcase in one one time. Service manual

Get the tub out and flip it over. Remove the belt and turn the pulley to see if the bearing is tight.

Flipped it over removed the belt and NO tight bearing it turns nicely. Brake releases and spin freely one way and agitates in the other direction.
