Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Our Kenmore Calypso 110.21082 is making a thumping sound in the wash cycle but not during the spin cycle. Seems to thump a little louder with every load. Any suggestions?

This washer has a very complex ujoint system that make the wash plate "nutate" as Whirlpool defines it. Something may be wrong with this system. I recommend having a pro do this job unless you have good mechanical prowess.

You need to replace the drive block and basket drive. You can download a tutorial to get you started at www.shop.washermd.com. The gearcase replacement tutorial will put you in the right direction. Dave

Thumping/knocking/rattles during wash agitation cycle


Mine is doing the same thing. I opened it up to see what was happening and it was the drive belt tension arm bumping around. Soon, the belt started slipping during the spin cycle. Now it won't spin and the belt starts to smolder from the friction of the drive motor. If you haven't checked your belt, that's a good place to start.

Thumping sound at the end of spin cycle.


Rankine, sounds more like a worn drive block that sits under the basket. Usually the brake will not make a thumping sound. Attached is a couple of pictures. Check this out first...Catriver..post back.
