Question about Whirlpool Cabrio Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio top load washer, WTW7600XW0. It was hit by a power surge from a lightning strike. I replaced both control boards. When I start a load, water flows for a few seconds then it stops, the lid lock engages, then it starts humming. Sounds like an electric motor that is locked up and can't turn. After several minutes the long fill error code comes up with a beep. I replaced the water valve assembly, but still have the same problem. I have the cover off and the humming is coming from the water valve.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Error code F 32

Plug off the wall. Open up behind, you will see a thin tube coming down from the control panel (pressure switch to be precise) to the waste area below. Disconnect this carefully from the top, blow into it, air should pass thru, it shd not be clogged; refit carefully. Before refitting, fit a similar tube to the pressure switch & blow - you should hear a click; if not there shd be a problem with your pressure switch. Anyway refit your old tube & try the machine.

Dont forget to refit the main exit hose at the position you found it. All you guys are going to rate me....................

SOURCE: Getting error code#06 Lr Locked Rotor

I too had the Lr problem on my Maytag MAH5500B. We had it fixed once when it was still under warranty but when it appeared again this summer, I was told that it would cost at least $500 to repair -- in other words, get a new one.

With nothing to lose, I simply unplugged the unit, opened the front and reset (as in pull out and re-insert) the jumpers to the control unit on the bottom right. It's been working fine since and I run it at least twice a week. I noticed that the Lr error would appear when I interrupt the wash cycle once it begins. When the error message appears, I simply unplug it, wait a few minutes and start it up again.

It is after all, a computer...and all computer could use a reset once in a while.

It sounds like you need to re programme the
machine.
With the machine plugged into the wall and
turned on and the headset turned off this is what
you do.
Push and hold down the start button, while doing that you need to then push and hold down the power button.
Hold them down for about 5 seconds, during
which time you may a series of up to 3 beeps.
Then release the buttons.
Turn the machine off and then on again followed by the start button. Allow the machine to then run the complete cycle.
This should correct your problem, if this doesn't then you may need to then look at replacing the computer panels.

How do I remove the solenoid connectors from the log valve valve on a Whirlpool Cabrio WTW7600XW0 top load washing machine?


The connections are a press fit, slide attachment. Grip with pliers and yank off, they will come off freely. Just do not bend the tangs or crush the ends with too much pressure.

I have a whirlpool cabrio washer and after a power outage it will not light up or start


If you have power to the outlet and the machine does not power up then the control board is fried. All the newer appliances with the electronics need to be on a surge suppressor to prevent this from happening. I repair these machines all the time and it is always the same. Happens after a power outage.
Here is the control board to order.
Here is the complete service manual for that unit also. Keep a copy of it. It will come in handy and will show you how to replace the control board. Look at page 4-5 for the control board replacement.
Keep me posted!

Keep getting F1 error code on my cabrio whirpool top load washer. Can you help?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F1 error in your whirlpool cabrio indicates bad control board and should be replaced to resolve the error code. However, you can contact Whirlpool as well prior to replacing the control yourself as I have seen whirlpool paying for the parts themselves just because this is known to be a common issue. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

On my whirlpool cabrio washer an F1 warning light comes on and washer will NOT work.


F1 is the control board failure and you need to replace the control board inside the machine that controls the entire machines cycles

Whirlpool Cabrio top loading washer F1 Error


F1 means the control board is shot. Call whirlpool and they should take care of the parts and labor even though your machine is out of warranty.

Lightning Storm/Affinity Washer


During a lightning storm, a lightning strike could have induced a high voltage surge in your incoming power lines. Left unprotected from these power surges, the weakest link ( normally low voltage electronic controls) are the most susceptable. Just because you had power available at the wall receptacle after a storm doesn't mean that your washer control system wasn't exposed to one of these surges and got damaged. On the contrary, it is extremely likely that the washer took a 'hit' and was damaged.Other devices plugged into the same receptacle may have survived that hit because electricity travels the path of least resistance.. In this case.. that path may have been thru your washer.. My point being is that your washer could have sustained a power surge and was damaged so don't rule that out. Of course, that surge could have taken an internal fuse or other component out too..
