Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
I heard my machine turn on by itself. I hit the cancel button only to have the machine turn itself on again. The panel was the only part turning on. No water was running. I tried unplugging for awhile hoping it would reset. That didn't work. As as soon as it was plugged back in It lit up again as if it were ready to wash. Although, if you pushed the start button it would not do anything. If you pushed the cancel button it would turn off but come on again by itself. So I held the start button down for a second or two and it would stay off longer than before but come back on. I held it down again and it stayed off longer again but came back on. I held it down a third time and it stayed off. So then I turned it on myself and then was able to start it normally. Last night there were storms. I think it probably received a power surge. It seems that repeatedly pressing and holding the cancel button did the trick for me. I hope it helps you.

Sounds like you have a stuck or shorted keypad. I've seen this a lot on this model. Solution is to replace the keypad. Catriver.
