Hope you're still under warranty. Worst machine ever!

 

The Calypso washing machine is one of the worst appliances that is out there still. All of the machines that were manufactured to be top of the line by Whirlpool between 2001 and 2004 have had severe product failures. They either collect water in the ...

Whirlpool is known for good product quality.

They missed the mark on this machine.

Do Not Buy Whirlpool Calypso

 

Biggest piece of junk that I ever paid 900.00 for. I also bought the 3 year warranty for $150.00, but the Calypso decided not to break down until it expired. I manged to repair the washer the first time it wouldn't drain by hauling it outside, taking ...

None

Spending a lot of money on a machine does not mean it is good.

DON'T BUY! Whirlpool doesn't need the money that bad.

 

Bottom line: DON'T BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK! It doesn't matter if you have a warranty! Whirlpool apparently doesn't have the parts to fix it anyway! I bought the set in Jan 07. After 3 days of use, I tried to return my Calypso set to Rex's Appliance ...

Sorry, even the pretty package doesn't do it for me.

False advertisement but a one-person-who-doesn't-get-clothes-dirty washer with a big price.

Calypso buyers are being ripped off by Whirlpool and Sears!!

 

Like so many others here have proclaimed before me, I was persuaded by the Sears salesman and his shiny copy of Consumer Reports that this was the mother of all washing machines. I too bought the matching set and was so proud of my new high tech ...

It looks really good. It was fairly easy to use when it was working.

Breaks down frequently, expensive to repair, shreds towels, does not get clothes very clean.

Absolute Piece of Garbage

 

I would agree with all the other negative reviews on this washer. If it were possible, I would give it negative-stars! This machine has been a thorn in my side since we bought it in 2003, when we built our new home. I wish I could have my old washer ...

It will be the best looking machine at the dump!

stains clothes, ruins clothes, stinks, doesn't clean, leaves residue, sucks every possible way

Calypso - Designed by Satan himself

 

We've had a Calypso washer for about 7 years. We bought it because it was highly rated by a leading consumer magazine (you know which one). I lost track of how many times the first Calypso had to have it's pump replaced. Finally, after 2 years, they ...

Large capacity, many wash cycles to choose from, detergent, bleach, and fabric softener dispensers, timer.

Numerous break downs, bad smell, ruins clothes, leaks oil, very noisy

Whirlpool Calypso and Sears Nightmare!

 

When building our house 4 years ago, we purchased all of our appliances from Sears, all Kenmore models except the Whirlpool Calypso Washer and Dryer. Thank goodness we purchased the extended warranty on all appliances, as Sears has been out NUMEROUS ...

Not worth the money

 

We purchased a Calypso washer from Sears thinking we were getting a machine that was a big improvement over our old one. WRONG! Since we purchased the machine about 1 year ago we have already had a repair man out to fix it once. Then it began ...

The clothes do get wet.

Damages cloths, pump is cheaply designed, bleach spotting.

A Shakespearean Tragedy!!!!

 

What makes this washer so bad is that it was so good in the beginning. DO NOT consider being one of these used!!! I researched this machine, read reviews, trusted the brand, and felt so good about the purchase. For the first 3 to 4 years it ...

In the end, none. It dies an early death.

Too much money for such a short lived washer.

I HAVE NEVER WRITTEN INTO ANYTHING ONLINE BUT I FELT COMPELLED TO WRITE MY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS PRODUCT IN THE EVENT IT WILL HELP BOLSTER SOMEONES CASE IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT OR ANY ATTEMPT TO RECOOP THEIR LOSES FROM THIS LEMON OF A PRODUCT. I PURCHASED...

NOT ONE SINGLE THING
