My whirlpool cabrio has water trapped in the wash basket. Is this normal? Keep getting UL code and checked everything else.

I have the same issue. when I remove the wash basket from the tub the plastic parts all seem to have a lot of water trapped inside them. I am looking for a solution and may start my own question. not getting any fault code at all the washer runs as designed. but the dirty water trapped in the plastic top of and bottom of the wash basket is making the clean clothes smell like a dirty dish rag.

Drum seems totally unattached in the washer machine?!?!


Welcome to FixYa

Based on your description I suspect the rear bearing or spider gear is toast. You are probably right, either the suspension shock absorbers are broke or the inner basket is separated from the spider gear often times.

Very common for these machines unfortunately. It isn't too bad if just shocks, but it is a very involved repair for the spider gear/inner basket.

**Unplug the unit from the wall before attempting any of these service first**

You'll need to remove the lower access panel to investigate the shocks...these shown are the newer style but previous versions where all plastic, hence the broke much easier.



and the rear panel to inspect the basket & spider gear attachment. Check for any signs of leakage or rust behind where the arrow indicates...the tub bearing.


If you think you're up to it I can help in whatever manner possible with those Frigidaire washers.

I'll watch for your reply. Good luck.

What is the fresh and ready bin used for?

The fresh and ready bin is used for fruit. You can place various fruits in the tilt out bin and grapes in the berry basket. The berry basket is made do it can be lifted out of the assembly and run under the faucet to rinse your grapes (it has holes in the bottom). The entire fresh and ready assembly is manufactured by a Whirlpool supplier in Southern Indiana.

The empty basket light stays on all the time

Try cleaning the bin full sensors. located on both sides of your machine, inside the bin,under the cutter head. If that does not solve problem, you need to replace bin full sensors.

My Whirlpool washer basket is crocked

Check the rear suspension spring. It attaches to a bracket under the back of the tub and then to the base of the washer.

Washer basket has dropped 1.5"

Different models use different devices to "suspend" the tub. Please verify the exact make / model.
