Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SW1: Won't drain

The washer drew half a tub of water on the "Bulky items" cycle, and stopped. All the lights on the cycle dial light up and flash, the machine beeps and the me error message in the "estimated time remaining" field is "Ld". I've tried to shut the machine down and change the cycle to "drain and spin" but it will not agitate, won't drain or spin.

    I have the same problem. I purchased the machine at the end of June at Lowes. Now I see that not draining seems to be a common problem for the Cabrio. I have tons of laundry, and I have to wait for a service tech to come on Saturday. It looks like the 4 yr extended warranty was a good choice for this item.

    In my case, where the washer froze in mid-cycle with half a tub of water, all the lights lit up and blinked and the LD error message came on, the problem was with the wiring in the drain pump. These machines for some reason have scissor-type wire connectors and all the vibrations can eventually slice into the wires, breaking the connection.



    I removed the back of the washer, (about 9 screws) and removed the drain pump. The two blue wires providing electrical service to the drain pump plug into the pump with a two-part plug connector. I unplugged the wires from the pump and using two needle-nosed pliers I was able to pull the plug connector apart (it does separate for service), trim the wires and re-insert them into the wire connector "scissors brace," then just reconnect the wires and screw the back onto my washer. Did this service around 2 weeks ago, it's worked perfectly since.

Just had the same problem, ld code, tub full of water, won't drain. Disconnected the washer and took it out to the drive way ( hand truck) and popped the rubber elbow to the pump to drain it. Then tipped it up on it's back ( on a moving blanket) and disconnected the pump ( three screws ) and the other rubber elbow. sure enough the pump was jammed with a small thin piece of metal. Put it all back together again and just ran a load, works fine, took about an hour. Thanks sears tec for the tips!

Yes a warranty is good on these machines and the first visit will justify the cost. Ld is long drain and can be caused by two problems. One is junk in the pump and the second is a drain hose inserted past the water level in your pipes. Simply stated when the machine drains you should here the water hitting the drain. If you pull the hose out and there is a water line on the hose it is inserted at least that much too far. Another detail is to make sure you use he soap as the old stuff foams too much for these machines.

Whirlpool Oasis washer, three months old and will not spin a king size blanket. Washes a full load of clothes, towels, etc. Fine. A blanket runs full cycle as normal but is soaking wet when finished.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

FL error indicates flood condition and is caused due to any overfill condition that occurs inside the washer. To clear the display you can press and hold the STOP/CANCEL button. Usually this error is caused when overfill switch trips due to excessive water in the tub. You can also try to clean the drain hose and check the water inlet valve. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My Cabrio washer won't drain and spin. It says "LD" and consistently stops with 24 minutes left on the cycle. For a while if I would spin the basket a little it would work. Not that...


There could be several things causing this problem. Have any small items gotten caught in the pump or between the basket and tub? You may be using a cycle with a low spin speed. If you need to remove excess water, select the Drain and Spin option. If the load is tightly packed it might cause the problem you're having. Are you using ONLY "HE" detergent? If so, be sure you're using the correct amount. To clean out residue from too much or wrong type of detergent select the "Rinse and Spin" option but do NOT add any detergent.
I hope this information helps. If it does, please rate my suggestion and its effectivness. Thanks!

5 month old Whirlpool Cabrio washer has moldy smell. Tub seems to empty well. Any ideas?


Smelly washers are common. Cabrio washers are HE and therefore use less water. By using less water, it doesn't rinse ITSELF as good as an older non-efficient machine. Things you can do to solve the problem. Buy a cleaner from Whirlpool called Affresh. It's 3 tablets that you throw in the washer without clothes and run it on the longest heavy duty cycle possible. Use the hot water setting and the longest duration. For existing smells use all 3 tablets. Then use 1 tablet every month to prevent reoccurring odors. You can also try the same type of cycle on hot water with a half of a gallon of bleach in the tub, or try it with a half of a gallon of vinegar. One of the 3 should do the trick.

Check the four suspension rods on the outer tub to make sure they are not broken and/or out of placement.
