Question about Whirlpool WTW6400SW Cabrio Washer

1 Answer

My whirlpool cabrio washer has started shutting off half way through the wash cycle...won't drain and spin...could the motor be overheating or is there something else I can check?

The machine is only 3 years old...bought at Lowe's as s set with the dryer.....in the past it has failed to drain and spin but just setting it to drain and spin has worked to make it do that. Now, even if I set it to drain and spin it won't run at all.

Most likely the cycle timer needs to be replaced. it is basically a clockwork device that that has cogs attached to a spindle. if you check the schematics for your product you will find the part no. etc. any servicing of course needs to be done wit the power disconected

Since your washer worked fine while in Germany and now is exhibiting this problem at your new home, you may want to double check how it was installed. I suspect you may have a problem known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

This could be a simple situation where the drain line on the washer is not installed correctly. There are minimum height and length requirments on the drain line. In addition, make sure the stand pipe you have the drain hose inserted in has a proper air gap to allow draining. All of this is explained in the link provided.

I hope this information is helpful to you. The majority of the situations arise from improper installation and is not an operaitonal problem with the washer. If, however, you double check everything and still have problems, please post back and let me know.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SW1: Won't drain

The washer drew half a tub of water on the "Bulky items" cycle, and stopped. All the lights on the cycle dial light up and flash, the machine beeps and the me error message in the "estimated time remaining" field is "Ld". I've tried to shut the machine down and change the cycle to "drain and spin" but it will not agitate, won't drain or spin.

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

Sounds like the belt broke and probably need replacing or the motor is shot.

It is either a timer issue or a motor issue. I know, that you knew. But if you have a motor with like circuitry and size, you can try that or to put it into the spin cycle and see if it is a mechanical obstruction or with a voltmeter see if the timer is working.

You probably have either a bad gearcase, timer, or lid switch. Defective motor is also possible.

My Cabrio washer won't drain and spin. It says "LD" and consistently stops with 24 minutes left on the cycle. For a while if I would spin the basket a little it would work. Not that...


There could be several things causing this problem. Have any small items gotten caught in the pump or between the basket and tub? You may be using a cycle with a low spin speed. If you need to remove excess water, select the Drain and Spin option. If the load is tightly packed it might cause the problem you're having. Are you using ONLY "HE" detergent? If so, be sure you're using the correct amount. To clean out residue from too much or wrong type of detergent select the "Rinse and Spin" option but do NOT add any detergent.
I hope this information helps. If it does, please rate my suggestion and its effectivness. Thanks!

Clothes wet after spin


Hi, if clothes are wet after spinning, check.......
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.

Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag), a worn clutch (GE/Hotpoint), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.
