HiCustomer

The problem that you are having is one of the common Calypso maladies.

Unfortunatly these are difficult to accuratly diagnose. It can be anything from a sock stuck under the agitator to the control board going out.

If you can use a multimeter and are handy with complicated diagnostics I can upload the service manual for your unit. If you are a novice DIYer I suggest that you call in a service tech.

Please advise if you would like the service manual.

I do expect you to let me know if you are not satisfied, and what I can do to put a smile on your face.
