WHIRLPOOL ELECTRIC WASHER STOPPED WORKING MIDWASH BC OF OVERLOAD?

Hi! I was in the middle of washing clothes and it seemed like I had loaded too much and the spinny thing was working harder and harder to wash and eventually it stopped after about 2 minutes. I stopped the wash completely and found some clothes had wrapped themselves around the spinny thing (sorry don't know correct term) took them out unplugged the whole thing and it is still not working. What could it be? Motor or something? It is an electric washer Whirlpool extra large capacity 7 cycle probably around 10 years old. Please help! My clothes are soaking wet!

    So the clothes wrapped around the agitator? Check under the washer and see if there is black crumbs underneath.

Whirlpool GSQ963ILL0 top load washer. Stopped dead in middle of agitate cycle. I fear I overloaded it. Now just sitting, full of clothes and water, and won't do anything. Any advice?


Hi jim_zervas,

Firstly, unplug the machine. Then first thing to do is remove the clothing, and bucket the water out. Then run the machine again.

Let me know what happens?

Kind Regards

Problem is the washer stops and F 11 dl come on and it stops midwash


The problem is the CCU circuit board at the inside top back of the machine. The circuit board has cold solder joints where the relays (5 of them) and the spade connectors connect to the circuit board. Touching-up these points will eliminate your code problems.

I hate my Whirlpool Cabrio washer- I've had it for almost 4 yrs- digital display board broke at 2 1/2 years and cost $450 to repair. Now I have leak under the washer who knows how much it will be to...


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.

It eats my clothes


I would remove the agitator, checking to see whether the bolt that holds it to the drive shaft is securely tightened. If it is tight I would then check the agitator for a serial number, usually molded directly into the plastic agitator on the inside bottom. Use the internet to determine if the part is the correct agitator for your specific model of machine. I have seen the wrong agitator installed on machines before and it can do a number on clothes, especially sweaters.
