I have the Whirlpool WTW4800xq2 and this happened after only 5 months of usage. It was the control board (ie brain) of the machine. Had to be replaced. thank goodness it was under 1 yr warranty. i hate this washer. it doesnt wash clothes cleanly at all. good luck.
I also hate hate hate my Cabrio washer and dryer. I've been a loyal whirlpool customer for over 25 years with ALL my household big appliances. ThWhirlpool doesn't care about loyalty. I bought this washer and dryer set in Sept. 2010. The clothes don't get clean....the darks have white streaks on them. I have to re-wash about every other load. I washed a pair of jeans and they still had dirt on them when I pulled them out. I called Whirlpool and their response was "What do you want me to do about it?" They said they can't do anything bc the washer is an energy saver.. I will NEVER buy another Whirlpool appliance.
There is no trap per say. The lint catcher is self cleaning when the water is pumped out. It sounds like you are overloading it and the clothes are hitting the agitator. Operation should be agitation by water movement not beat by the plastic fins, run a wash cycle hot water no clothes to flush things out and try smaller loads. Eric
If they have come off, it is because they are worn or broken.You need to fit 3 new ones
They are referred to as drum or clothes lifters, thier purpose being to move the clothes around.
Do not use the washer until you have got them fitted.
They usually slide and click into the slots in the drum.
What is the answer for dingy clothes? I have the same problems and I'm getting ready to get rid of this washer because I'm tired of not getting clean clothes and having my towels smelly after taking them out of the washer.

I completely understand your dilemma as I have the same problem with my HE3. I was so frustrated I called a service tech out before my warranty expired and he told me the #1 complaint about these washers is that they don't get the clothes clean. I was surprised at his honesty! He told me to get a water softener and to use hot water but said nothing about clothes that are supposed to be washed in cold water. I asked him how to adjust the water level and he said the sensor is not adjustable but I have been unable to find out if these is true. I agree with you and believe it's because they use too little water. I have come to absolutely hate this washing machine for many reasons. When washing anything long (jeans, pants, long-sleeve shirts, etc) it literally ties the whole load into a clothes knot. You can grab one item and pull the whole load out because it's a huge knot ball. So tell me, how do the clothes get clean (or properly rinse) when they are in a ball and unable to freely move through the water (which isn't there) in the bottom of the tub? Another problem is that it takes a MINIMUM of 3-4 rinse cycles to get the detergent out of the clothes...yes, I use HE detergent. Here's what I do. I use the 'add a garment feature' to interrupt the cycle after the washer has filled. Then I add about 2-3 gallons of additional water to both the wash and 1st/2nd rinse cycles. This has helped immensely but leads to two more reasons I hate the machine. First, that makes it extremely high maintenance to stand waiting for the moment to add water. Second, when adding the additional water, clothes have a tendency to get caught between the rubber gasket and wash tub where they can sit during the entire cycle not getting clean. On the up side I can say I've never had a mechanical problem with the machine. I am sorry and wish I could help more.
