Question about Whirlpool WTW6600SW Top Load

CABRIO WASHER - WTW6600SW

When my washer is spinning it sounds as if a coin or a piece of corn (my kids played in their grandma's corn wagon - corn for horses) is trying to spin but the noise is not in the inside of the tub that you can see, it is in between the tub and something else. How can I look to see if that is what it is before paying out the wa-hoo to let someone else find it? Once the washer is spinning real fast you no longer hear it. Its only when it's beginning and ending. Thanks for your time - have a blessed day :)

    I have the same problem. We saw a recommended solution that involved taking it apart and removing whatever was in there. We tried that but there was nothing in any accessible place. It sounded like it might be inside the sealed liquid-filled portion of the tub.

Washer Repair Boise - Whirlpool Cabrio Pump


I've replace many pumps on the whirlpool Cabrio and most of these washer pump failures could have been prevented by removing coins from pockets. Many times coins will make there way to the outer tub and get sucked right into the pump to create a rattling sound. That rattling sound you hear is the impeller spinning against the coin. Since the impeller is plastic, it doesn't take long for the impeller to wear down. Just a tip, please remove coins from pockets. You'll save money and time :->.

Makes a noise when in the spin cycle. Almost like coins in the barrel only there are no coins in the barrel. Or sounds like it is trying to change gears and grinds.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what you've described, sounds like a worn tub bearing unfortunately.

To check it, remove the agitator assembly inside the tub, once it's off. take the tub assembly and move it side to side to inspect for "play" in the bearing. This will explain the bad sounds and the grinding...I bet it doesn't spin the items out very well either due to too much vibration sensed to maximize spin.

Let me know what you find and I'll try to help you move forward from here. I can provide more detail with pictures if necessary.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

My whirlpool cabrio top loading washer with corner dispensers had some coins trapped in the bottom of the basket. I can hear the coins and some water. When the washer goes into spin it apparently throws...


You have to disconnect all wire connectors, inner basket, both pumps & Then unclasp the 4 shock rods then remove the whole inner assembly. Then turn the inner assembLy upside down & every which way until they all fall out. Like shaking quarters out of your piggy bank.

My cabrio washer sounds like it has coins under the basket when it goes through the spin cycle. how do i get them out?


Assuming that this is a Whirlpool Cabrio, see the following Whirlpool Service manual. It has sections on how to pull the agitators, tub etc.

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.

CODE F 50


most likely connection to motor sensor on bottom.. just behind the motor rotor the connection is probably not making good contact with sensor connection
