Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Does not go into wash mode but jumps to rinse and drain

The display looks good except for "add garment" which is on when the lid is locked. the machine starts ok i guess with a series of slow turns and water spraying. then the tub fills with water, sometimes it feels like its too much for the load, and after filling it pauses a few minutes then jumps to rinse and drain mode. I also notice that the timer has lost 40+ minutes when it jumps to the rinse and spin mode.

    I resolved the problem. The Stainless Tub was rusted on the shaft of the motor. After removing the agitator I had to use a hammer to remove the Stainless Tub. I cleaned off the rust from the drive shaft and the S. Tub and re-installed everything while packing the gears and S.Tub sleeve with a good grease. The machine works great now. Thanks for all your help

    PS. The display showed 'oL' when this problem was unresolved. Use sandpaper to clean the rust from the drive shaft and the S. Tub sleeve. Don't forget the grease.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Washer - Imperial Series Quiet Wash 2

your washers drain hose is too far down the drain pipe which is causing a siphoning action pull the washers drain hose out pipe some you should be able to hear water dropping into the pipe the reason it only happens in the rinse cycle is because the water from wash is being drained and before the water vacuum is broken the rinse water comes in causing it to keep draining

LG WM2455HG washer not completly draining after wash


LG washing machines always have problems, especially those that are energy savers. Too little water and the wash balls your washing; in rinse mode too little water and it doesn't rinse soap residues (you can smell the soap in the fabric. You can also rinse a garment in the sink or in a bucket full of water after it has been rinsed by the machine, give it a good rinse and see how much soap is still trapped in the garment. This excess soap causes side effects for people with sensitive skin, scratching is one of them. Washing machines that provide energy savings in both water of electricity are not good because of the above problem and therefore you have to re-rinse the washing again to make sure there isn't any excessive soap residue from a rinse done on low water. Plus LG washing machines and a few others have another problem, the collection of lint. LG machine's lint collection is really bad. You will soon find lint of all sorts in darker garments, even though you had only put those dark garments only, the lint is always there, e.g. pockets, lint accumulated in pockets (when you turn the pockets inside out or when a tissue is left in a pocket and the pocket wasn't turned inside out, that lint or paper lint works it's way around the tub and messes all the garments. In the old days washing machines had a strainer with a tap-like hose pouring water filled with lint into the strainer and not left it to swish-swash among the washing only to end up smeared on the garments. If your machine is filling and empting, then there is a problem with the electronics. Usually there is a reset button at the back. press it and see if it resets. If not, then the machine has ended it's service. I suggest you email LG and ask what is causing the problem. They can help you more because they're the ones who designed these machines. Sorry. Even my LG flat screen HDMI TV has blown up a couple of times. The first it had somehow recovered but the second time it blew like fireworks bang and then died, costing me $400 to repair. Honestly, when appliances fail, there is little you can do because you are not allowed to open them up and repair them yourself.

I have an error message f51 on my whirlpool cabrio washer model number WTW7600XW0, What is it and how can I fix this error on my own


F51 error code is a motor rotor position sensor failure or a lower harness problem. You need to check the motor in manual test mode, not automatic test mode. This will check the hall sensors and do a spin test: Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in with all indicators off; or with only the Clothes Clean or Done indicator on). Select any one button (except POWER, START, STOP, and PAUSE/CANCEL) and follow the steps below, using the same button: Press/hold 3 seconds. Release for 3 seconds. Press/hold 3 seconds. Release for 3 seconds. Press/hold 3 seconds.

If this test mode has been entered successfully, all indicators on the console are illuminated for 5 seconds with 88 showing in the Estimated Time Remaining two-digit display. During the 5 second wait time with 88 showing in the display, press the same button once. You should be in manual test mode. If the button is not pressed within 5 seconds, the automatic test mode begins. The Rotor Position Sensor uses Wash, Rinse, and Spin indicators to detect the three hall sensors. Console can have up to two of these indicators on at the same time when the tub is not moving. Open the lid and rotate the basket by hand. The Wash, Rinse, and Spin indicators should toggle on and off according to the direction the tub is being turned.

SPIN TEST: Make sure lid is down. Press and release: 2nd RINSE or EXTRA RINSE. The lid locks and the lid lock indicator turns on. Press and release; SPIN SPEED, WATER LEVEL, or LOAD SIZE. The motor/basket spins at 23 rpm. Press again, motor /basket spins at 530 rpm. Press again, motor/basket spins at 950 rpm. Press again and motor turns off.

What is hd code????


Hi Peter, If I understand your question correctly, you are asking what the code "HD" means for your machine. I am unable to find the code "HD", however, here is a list of the codes for these Maytag models, perhaps one looks similar to "HD". Hopefully this answers your question!

Washer displaying code messages
- "LF" (Washer is taking too long to fill)
Check the following:
Are the water inlet hoses kinked or clogged?
Are the water inlet valve screens clear?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.
- "Ld" (Washer is taking too long to drain water from the wash tub)
Check the following:
Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
Is the drain hose installed properly? See "Connect the Drain Hose." Press PAUSE/CANCEL
to clear display.
- "uL" (Unbalanced Load)
If the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while running an imbalanced
load correction routine at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code
remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open
lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press START.
- "oL" (Over Load)
Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to fill and begin the wash cycle. If
the washer is overloaded, it will drain any water and detergent that was added during the
fill. To correct the overload, remove several items and add detergent. Close lid and press
START.
- "Sd" (Suds Detected)
Did you use regular detergent?
Regular or hand-washing detergents are not recommended for this washer. Use only High
Efficiency ("HE") detergent.
Did you add too much detergent?
Always measure detergent. Follow detergent manufacturer's directions.
If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds
reduction correction routine at the end of the wash cycle. The suds reduction routine
removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. If the code remains and
the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your
desired cycle using cold water. Press START. Do not add detergent.
- "lid" (Lid Opened)
Is the lid open? Close the lid to clear the display. If the lid remains open for more than 10
minutes, water in the wash tub will drain.
- "HC" (Cold and Hot hoses switched)
This code will appear at the end of the wash cycle to indicate that the cold and hot water
inlet hoses are switched. See "Connect the Inlet Hoses."
- "dL" (Door/Lid cannot lock)
Indicates lid is not locked. Check for items caught in the lid keeping it from closing. Press
PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
- "dU" (Door/Lid cannot unlock)
Is there excessive weight on the lid, such as a basket of laundry? Excessive weight will
keep the lid from unlocking. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
- "F##" code
Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear code. Press START. If code appears again, call for
service.

Wash Cycle will not start; ADD GARMENT and DOOR LOCKED lights on.


IF you take the panel off the is below the door, there is a drain plug and you should take it out. YOU will get lots of WATER. Be ready. Clean this out and try again. The issue is most likely the water solenoid valve is bad or the board that controls it is bad. You can also find the tech sheet when you look for the drain. It has all the tests that you can run.

The door wont open . I have tried to put it on for a cycle and you can here the the water for around 5 seconds then it stops and does nothing.


Check and make sure your pump or filter is not clogged, then next I would suspect you have a faulty door lock mechanism
More common issues with the door lock.
Is water hooked up to the washer?

The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?

If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?

If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?

If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!

My oasis kenmore elite keeps flashing f 50


The machine control through the rotor position sensor (RPS) cannot detect the motor running. The rotor is stuck, the rotor position sensor is faulty, or the machine control is malfunctioning. Open the lid and turn the drum manually. If it turns freely, activate the Manual Diagnostic Mode Test to check the functionality of the rotor position sensor and the machine control. If it doesn't turn freely, let us know to guide you in troubleshooting and repairing it.

The machine should be in standby mode when activating diagnostic test mode. That is, the machine is plugged in will all indicators off, or with only the Clothes Clean indicator on.

Choose any single button except Start, Stop, and Power. Press and hold the chosen button for 3 seconds and release it for 3 seconds; press it again for another 3 seconds and release it for another 3 seconds; press the same button again for another 3 seconds and release it (press, release, press, release, press; 3 seconds each).

The indicators will all light up for 5 seconds with 88 displayed in the Estimated Time Remaining display if the test mode has been successfully entered.

Repeat the procedure if the test mode is not activated. You may choose another button. Let us know if it cannot be activated after multiple attempts failed.

Press the same button chosen above before the indicators turn off (5 seconds). A single beep sounds and the two-digit console ID number is displayed. After 3 seconds the display is cleared (00) and the Add a Garment indicator flashes.

Open the lid and rotate the basket manually. The Wash, Rinse, and Spin status indicators should toggle on and off according to the rotation of the basket.

Press and release the 2nd Rinse button to lock the lid and the lid lock indicator turns on. Press and release the Rinse Speed button. The basket should spin slowly; pressing it again will raise the spin speed. The motor turns off and the basket stops the fourth time the Rinse Speed button is pressed.

With the basket stopped, press the Soil Level button to activate the Gentle wash action. Press it again to activate the Normal wash action. Press it again to activate the Heavy wash action. Press it again to turn off the motor and stop the basket.

Let us know the result of the test for us to guide you in troubleshooting the problem and eventually repair it.
