Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer
I have a Cabrio washer and have been getting LD error. I took the pump out and the water came gushing out , the hose is free and clear so there are no plugs, but when I have it drain and rince, the hose jerks once but no water comes out, then the LD error comes back.
Is there water in the bottom of the tub? If yes then open back of washer and remove drain pump (on left side) and pull off of tub and clear whatever is blocking its impeller.
If the water is all gone and drained but pump stays on for several minutes and then gives "LD" fault then open back and check the small clear tube that is attached to the tub. Make sure is not blocked with debris and check tube and tub for anything that could block the small clear tube. If these are ok then remove 3 screws in back of the control panel, pull open control panel and check the clear tub all the way up from the tub to the washer controller board (computer) make sure it is not kinked or disconnected. If not then the problem is most likely the pressure sensor on the (computer). This unit will have to be replaced.
You can test the sensor by doing the following: 1. When the "LD" fault comes on start by pressing the pause button. then pull the clear tube off of the computer board. Then attach a tight fitting drinking straw over the sensor. Press the start button and wait for 60 seconds - If the washer does not start the spin cycle on its own after the 60 seconds then **** on the drinking straw that you attached to the pressure sensor earlier. The sucking action should reset the sensor thus telling the computer that the water is drained and it will start the spin cycle. Just remember if you have to do this to get the washer to spin - that means the sensor is damaged most likely from moisture traveling up the tube over time. The computer board will need to be replaced. I believe it costs $205 without shipping. Hope this helps.

I had a ld code on my cabrio and was ready to junk it (three years old). However, I decided to give a repair a try. The drain pump was humming but the machine wasn't draining. I replaced the drain pump - fairly easy for the mechanically inclined. Turned out it was just a couple bobby pins sucked into the pump. Machine is running fine again.

I had to call a repair service a couple of months ago due to error code. When washer was ready to spin it stopped. They had to replace the brain of the washer. Cost me over $400.00 bucks. That was the second time it broke. The first time it wouldn't drain. Drain pump was replaced. Now it got an error code again today. I just sat and paused and started about 20 times and it finally finished my load. Will call repair on Monday. This is the worst washer (Cabrio top loader) I have ever purchased in my life. My moms 300.00 dollar roper from Lowes works better. The dry ...no problems yet (knock on wood) If yours wont drain or spin get ready to spend some cash for the repair. I always though Whirlpool was a dependable brand. Never again will I purchase them again.

I have had my cabrio washer for 7 years and it has been fixed maybe 10 different times. Most of the time when they came out to fix it, I told them that on occasion I would get a LD code. Yesterday someone came out to fix it again ( thank goodness I keep buying the warranty ). He took out the tub and under that was the drain filter. It was full of green slim. He took that piece off, hose it off and my washer works great.

I had the LD error code, but I pulled my pump and connected 120vac to it and it worked fine. I then checked the voltage at the connector that connects to the pump and it was an intermittent 140vac. If i pushed in on the wire going to the conector then the voltage stayed a solid 140vac. Guess what this means? It means a bad wire connection. To confirm this, i installed my pump back and when it went into drain mode, i pushed in on the blue wire going to the pump. And as i expected, the pump started working. So, be careful not to waste your money on a new pump or controller board without fully diagnosing the problem. I am either going to try and repair the wire connection or get a new wire harness.

Removing the tub from a cabrio washer:
I watched a YouTube video that showed how to use a car jack and a 2x4 to remove the tub. Can't remember what it was titled but it worked great and the tub came right out. Don't buy a fancy tool. This works

LD code...removed inner tub (stainless basket) with some difficulty, sprayed PB Blaster on bolt head enjoyed my morning coffee a bit...after about 15 minutes, was then was able to push down and then pull up a few times on it until it broke free from the driveshaft so I could remove it from the washer and access the plastic outer tub that surrounds the inner tub. Cleaned a washcloth and $1.30 (5 quarters & a nickel, no bills involved) from bottom of plastic tub that was partially blocking drain pump intake in the back right corner (as seen standing in the front of the washer with the entire top portion raised up), soaked up the water and slime in the bottom of the plastic tub. Had some difficulty getting stainless inner tub back over motor shaft (was clearing the splined portion of the shaft by a few inches, but was sticking below that at the top of the section that probably made it hard to get off in the first place) until I cleaned up some more rust/muck on the driveshaft and on inside of the inner tub...slid back on nicely after clean up and a little more PB Blaster spray, all good after buttoning things back up.

Wow! You guys were SO helpful! Also, I am having a devil of a time getting all of the parts out of the hub out of the inside of the basket to remove the basket on the H2LowCabrio(which has so many things wrong with it, and they all vary according to its mood! Control panel, lid switch, sensor, and then of course...one never knows if leaky seal, motor, sensor, or capacitor!)
! I am fairly sure there are three parts to the hub, and we have only gotten two out. Tomorrow I am gonna try to spray WD40 on the last piece to see if I can remove it this way. I use a toothbrush and combo of baking soda with vinegar splashed on it to remove a LOT of gunk that causes the parts to stick together. But this last piece of the hub WON'T budge! If I can't remove the hub, and I can't remove the basket/tub, I can't get to see if the seal needs replacing/bearings need replacing. (The electronic control panel is likely faulty, and the machine leaks water, so I wanna check the bottom of the tub.) Does anyone know of a video I can watch that shows how to remove entire tub/basket off rod, using the Whirlpool Cabrio H2Low model WTW5550XW0?
