Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer
My washer isnt draining, flashed sd. Now lid wont lock
Sd is displayed when the machine/motor control, by analyzing drag on the basket, detects a suds-lock condition, and is steady on while the control then runs a mini-clean out cycle. If the clean out cycle is unable to correct the over-sudsing problem, the cycle ends and Sd flashes in the display. This may signify:
Excessive detergent usage.
Basket cannot engage during drain step.
Mechanical friction on drive mechanism, not allowing basket to engage.

the lid switch can be changed without removing from closet for sure,you can remove the angular access panel between the2 units youll see 2 brass clips holding the cabinet to the top, slide the entire top toward you to remove. its located under there. there may be 2 screws across the rear of main top holding down as well but yea pulling out will get you kn more access to any component

Good you ran diagnostics, F 72 shows at c7 when the basket settles after draining the water out. F 72 is a basket re- engagement failure, does your machine go off balance easy? I need to know is the machine was purchased at Sears and the serial number. If so I will get a special phone number for recalls. I hope it is a Sears machine, we see if the hot line can schedule a tech to service the machine. What the recall line will need after confirmation of a Sears purchase is you name and phone number plus model and serial number of machine. Now they will also need the part numbers to order. When these parts are ordered they will ups them to you which at that point you call back so recall can get a tech out to repair the cabrio.
motor control unit part # W10201186
Washplate part # W10077050
Recall number for Sears machines only 1-800-659-7026
I appreciate the chance to help you today, I had a machine like yours today and yesterday with same issue:)

This problem is commonly attributed to a loose or broken lid switch.
If your washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle or drain, the problem is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:
If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.
If you have any questions about this repair, or if you need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: cabrio washer wont drain
I had a very similar problem. The washer did not drain anymore and the agitator did not move or very slowly. What I found after removing the back panel and could see the plastic tub, was that a pillow case was clogging the drain. I had to remove the agitator and was able to pull out the pillow case through the slots of the tub. It seems hard to believ that a pillow case would migrate through the small gap of the agitator and tub and then through the slots into the drain cavity but that is what I found. After that removal, the washer worked fine again. Hope that helps.
