Brand new whirlpool cabrio began leaking

I have a 90 day old Whirlpool Cabrio topload and it worked perfectly for 60 days then began leaking intermittently. First one load out of 6 or 8, and only a little. Now it leaks HUGE and every load. Seems only when draining - not filling (spraying) or washing. Drain hose and water inlets are fine and dry, and the water is coming from inside, apparently from the rear right corner when facing the machine. I used to think it was overspray from inside the top of the tub if and when a load was too small and the auto water fill was selected, but now I think I may have something inside the washer maybe interfering with the internal drain outlet. I purchased the service agreement and extended warranty but hate to call and wait for a repair man if this is something I can check for and easily remedy myself. Any ideas? Could it be possible dirt, debris or a small piece of clothing is blocking the drain or you think we actually have a defect-related leak?

Sounds like you may have a small hole or a failure in a seal somewhere, is there a filter on the drain you could check this is secure and free from debris, is it possible that the drain hose has been kinked during a spin and possibly leaked? if it only leaks when it drains it is defenatley somewhere in the drain system. I would use your Insurance on this one Top loaders can be difficult to work with as the space inside them is very limited.

My cabrio washer is leaking badly


Call the whirlpool factory and tell them you are calling about a recall, they replaced my motherboard for free to keep me as a satisfied customer. Doesn't hurt to give it a try.

Is there a number after the F code?

Thats ok heres what the code means: Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Fault Codes.

Means primary control failure and to resolve this you'll have to replace the machine control assembly. This error should be fixed by whirlpool as its a common issue with whirlpool Cabrio washers, you can call 1-800-253-1301 whirlpool will send a tech. to fix it and pay for the part.

Hope helps.

Whirlpool Cabrio code F50


I also had an F50 code on my Cabrio top load washer. Went through all the diagnostics, removed the tub, checked the motor, etc. After a lot of research, purchased a new control board (part #W10189966) and....it works even better than before....no more noise and spins perfectly. Very easy to install (3 screws and one bolt.) Please don't waste your time (like we did) checking all these other areas of the machine. The part was $155. (google it for best price new) and worth it if it will last another year or more...
