Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer
What youll need to do is take off the top cover and remove the control. There are 3 screws in the back 1/4 inch nut driver will be needed if u dont have u might get it off with a phillips. Also you will need an ohmmeter to check the continuity in the motor windings and the RPS sensor motor rotor position sensor. I think ur main drive (part of motor) is probably bad so take one probe between the 3 set of wires. there are red blue and yellow and u need to see what u get. if you are getting 16 between each, the motor is good. then there are 6 brown wires check the resistance on all of them but i believe you need to know the resistance on the two on each end. There might be no resistance there which i believe would mean the rps could be bad. What im getting now is that the motor is giving me 30.6 ohms and i am not getting continuity at all on the rps. I believe the motor is out on it and also the rps but I'm not really sure 100 percent right now I cant contact whirlpool cause its sunday. But tomororrow im going to figure it out for sure. It either needs the rps or the main drive or both. But once you have that part figured out you should be able to figure it out through whirlpool. But it probably will not be cheap if it's the main drive. I'm figuring anywhere from a 60 dollar fix to a 200 dollar fix. But thats cheaper than 610 that a repair man is going to want.
