Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Laundry too wrinkled

I have a whirlpool cabrio 6600sw2 and regardless of the spin speed or soak combination that we choose our wash comes out of the unit extremely twisted. So much so that even when we take the load out of the washer, shake out each individual piece of clothing before it goes into the dryer, it still comes out of the dryer way too wrinkled. Regardless of the size of the load. We have found that setting the washer on heavy soak and the spin speed on medium tends to produce the least amount of twisted and wrinkled garments. it is almost as if the clothes need more water, but everything looks fine. We have even considered finding out if there was a way to get more water to the washer by taking off the water saver component on the unit. any suggestions?

Grabbed this of an official whirlpool web site: Clothing in the washer can become tangled and twisted or balled up.
Under certain conditions, a combination of the wash load, the cycle selected and the subsequent load movement can cause
the load to become tangled or twisted.
The wash impeller has been redesigned to make the wash load less likely to tangle under the conditions mentioned above.
Replace the wash impeller with part #W10141017.
willing to bet your serial number is before this number here. easy enough part to switch if its no longer under warr
SERIAL CODE RANGE: Prior to CU39

Whirlpool Cabrio Washer does not spin the water completly out of the clothes


probably not getting into high speed spin mode
they spin slow in the initial stages to allow the clothes to become evenly distributed then after the water is removed they pick up speed
It is possible a problem in the program board not advancing to high speed
Call in a technician for a proper diagnosis and a quote

My Whirlpool Cabrio 6600sw2 has lots of problems, it stops and flashes F50 over and over again, it also flashes many of the other codes, it doesn't fill with enough water and it is not washing the clothes...


The F50 error code indicates that the RPS (rotor position sensor) detects no motor rotation. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, you could have an item caught between the outer tub and the inner spin basket. A toy or other item underneath the washer could also prevent the basket from spinning and would result in this F50 code.

If the basket spins freely, you could have a wiring failure that would prevent the motor from spinning.

Clothes come out extremly wrinkled on top loding whirlpool washer


This is normal. You can try a lower spin setting or smaller loads. The wrinkles will come out in your dryer.
