Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
I have the calpso washer, and I am getting rust and oil looking stains on mostly the whites and light colored clothes. It's ruining everything!! I hand washed a load of whites tonight and then put then in the washer and did the sin and rinse only to see if that would help, and much to my dismay, those too had spots all over them. And this was a very small load of socks. My mother-in-law gave me this washer, because she bought a brand new washer and dryer set, it is about 8 years old. She says she has never had a problem with it, and loved it when she had it.

My kenmore washer basket has noticable chips on the inside and has rust stains as well, it is only 5 years old. how can I find out about the 10 year warranty?

This may not be relevant, but by design, bleach does NOT dispense in the Buly/Bedding, Kids Wear, and Silk/Ultra Delicate cycles. If you try to use it, it remains in the dispenser.
As for the yucky smell, leave the door open when not in use.

to all that are having a problem with these calypso washers... if you have paid for a repair then you need to check out the lawsuit... calypsosettlement.com and see if it applies to you.
but if you are getting a mark or a residue on your clothes, then look at the inner wash plate gasket, where it meets with the outer stainless steel tub. if there is a gap between the gasket and the tub then thats where the marks are coming from.
it happens alot and thats not covered by the settlement, but its not too bad to replace the inner wash plate. you need to remove the cabinet, then the tub cover and the innerwash plate dome. then 6 screws and the cover will come off.
replacing the inner wash plate will solve the stains and get you a few more years of use until you have to buy a new washer as more items may fail.

Tips for a great answer:
1. Iron or manganese in the water supply. • Avoid using chlorine bleach on rust stains. It will make them darker and more obvious. • When iron is dissolved in the water, use granular detergent plus a non-precipitating water conditioner, such as Calgon or Spring Rain*. Better results may be obtained by dissolving detergent and water conditioner in the wash before adding the clothes. Be certain that all clothes are down into the water before starting washer. • If the iron is suspended in the water (it will settle out), attach a rust filter to the faucet and inlet hoses or to the water line. • If iron or manganese stains are a recurring problem, the customer may need a special filter or chemical feeder installed in the home to remove these minerals from the water supply. To remove: Launder with RoVer* Rust Remover Part No. 057961 using the directions below: • Top loading washers: a. Fill the washer with water (no detergent), selecting a temperature suitable for the fabric (hot or warm). b. Add 1/3 cup RoVer and let it dissolve by agitation. c. Add clothes and allow washer to complete the cycle. d. Follow up with an additional wash with detergent.
Be sure to check the spin basket for rust spots also.
