Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio topload HE Washer. The problem it is having is that it makes a banging/knocking sound when it is agitating.

The problem it is having is that it makes a banging/knocking sound when it is agitating. It started doing it when I had the setting on sheets and towels but not it is doing it more often. It does not seem to interfere with the working of the machine but it is loud enough that I think it might one day cause something to break. Any ideas?

SOURCE: the load finished on my

you need to replace the lid lock. the latch probably broke in 2, and the broken part is whats keeping the lid closed. if you have clothes inside you can open the top by using a putty knife to release the front clips holding the top of the machine down. push each clip in and lift up. you will also be able to access the lid lock this way.

So while you are holding the agetator is it ripping your hands? or is the agetator just sitting there? If the agetator is just sitting there you probably have bad agetator dogs. I would remove the fabric softner or cap whichever you have. under the cap you will see grooves in the agetator down low. When you manually turn the agetator you should see 4 tear drops that grab the grooves if you do not see this you have bad dogs. Very simple. This usually is the cause for the grinding noise that you are hearing. Please let me know if this works for you //eg
