Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water valve P/N 8577407 failed after 13 months

I have a Whirlpool washer model WTW6600SW and teh water valve (8577407) failed after 13 months of use. Cost to repair $260.45.

I contacted Whirlpool and asked if this was common for a 13 month old washer - no comment but Whirlpool did contact the local service comapany and paid for the part - $92.80.

I did not purchase an extended warranty as I did not expect a major failure within 13 months. Lesson learned.

    does the hard water issue apply even when you are using a water softener?

    @Jstr1ck,

    The point of a water softener is to get rid of hard water deposits. You should not a hard water problem if your softener is working properly.

    Do you live in an area that has hard water? Are you using well water? If either of these cases pertain to you, this could be contributing to the water valve failing. Rust, sediment, and calcium deposits can clog these valves and cause problems and be the reason why you may be experiencing a higher than normal failure rate on the part.

SOURCE: f70 code, The washer won't start

Check out your latch before changing the computer part. They're easily broken, and cause the machine to think that it's the computer parts.

The washer starts and water runs for about 3 seconds and then stops. i can hear the motor run like it is running but no water. it goes to spin like normal. i have a cabrio wtw6600sw top load


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Water


If you say new is that brand new or a few months old

Take off the water connection at the rear of the machine and check the filter which inside the valve opening. (Turn the water off at the fawcet first and switch the machine on as if to do a load which should reduce any pressure in the pipes , just in case put a cloth around the connector when you unscrew it).


If that is clean call the company out as it is probably a failed fill valve

Whirlpool Duet washer fills with water by itself


sounds like a faulty water inlet valve, not seating properly after closing the valve.replacing the valve is the only solution to this problem, in the meantime you can turn off your water supply in between doing loads.

not a bad habit to get into!!!!

Washer filling up improperly


Well its definately not your water level switch, so that only leaves your water fill valve at the back of the washer, the cold valve is stuck open by debris. hope this helps
