SOURCE: Whirlpool Cabrio washer will not drain

Oay, first your going to want to get most of the water out by tilting the unit forward and using a cup to get the water out. next disconnect the water, power and drain hose, if possible take it outside, if not, have a bucket read. get move the unit forward and get behind it, it is easiest if you just tilt the machine forward and lean it against something so you can get under it. when you get under it you will see the drain pump on the left side. there are 2 blue wires on the pump, pull off the connection and check to see if the wire has come loose, if so its an easy fix take apart the connection by the tab on the top and and remove the sleeve and simply use a small screw driver to push the wire back inbetween the prongs. other wise use a 5/16 bit and loosen the drain there will be 2 spring clips on the very small rubber joint, (be aware that if you are inside dont pull it off at once it will spill about 2-4 gallons of water depending on how much you got out),  pull that off and check inside the drain with your finger and inside the tub. if nothing is found, replace the pump.

SOURCE: Model 23832 Spin cycle doesn't spin

I believe this is the direct drive model. Your clutch is slipping. There is a quick easy fix available that I have used in the past. Remove cabinet from washer. Make sure you know the easy way to do this... 2 screws on top back of washer and 2 holding control panel. cabinet tips toward from of unit and off. Real easy... Remove wire harness from motor under basket. Remove 3 screws holding motor to basket. Remove agitator inside basket. 1 screw holds it in place. Remove entire motor and shaft from unit. Clutch is attached to shaft on top of motor. Pinch spring to remove clean everything with alcohol. Insert #10 washer between cup and spring to give a little more tension. Replace and viola.... all should work well.

My Whirlpool spins... It just does not do a very good job


It's very possible that the impeller in the drain pump is striping out and not allowing the pump to get up to high enough spin to completely drain.

I just purchased my Cabrio washer...have had it a week. When I use the normal cycle, the machine does not spin the clothes at the end of it so when they cycle is done the clothes are dripping wet. I then...


I have had my Cabrio washer a little over a year. No it isn't suppose to do that. There is a setting for spinning high medium and low spin. Maybe you can change the spin setting manually. See if that works The washer is computer operated so the spinning cycle must be out on your normal cycle. I did myself a favor and I keep all clothes on towels and sheets. I set the temp for the water on what I would like manually. The washer fills up with more water and seems to clean the clothes better and My washer does the same thing from time to time about not spinning. Just remember you can set all wash manually with water temp and spin cycle. Is your washer still under warrenty?

Whirlpool Cabrio he clothes washer


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
