Looks like the Kenmore Calypso has died...again. (purchased in 2002)
The control panel is totally dead. No LED's, no beeps, nada.
I've taken it apart and tested with a multi-meter as much as I know how to.
I have power to the line filter, out of the line filter, and power to both sides of the fuse on the motor control board.
This POS isn't worth putting much more money into...it's the worst washer we've owned in 34 years of marriage...certainly a far cry from the Whirlpools of yesteryear.
Sadly (sort of) we had none of the problems that would have qualified us for the class-action lawsuit...until after the closing date to qualify. (figures, huh?)
Other than just scrapping this thing and buying a new one, any suggestions?
(we're on a tight budget with a very fixed income)
IF the general recommendation is to cut our losses and replace it, any suggestions for a GOOD washer in the $350-$600 range?
I LIKE the Speed Queens, but read VERY mixed reviews on them. (plus the wife doesn't want to turn loose of that much $$ if we can avoid it.)
Our local appliance dealer has a "scratch & dent" warehouse, but it seems like all they have in there are G.E.'s...which everyone recommends avoiding.
Thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for any replies. :tip hat:
