Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer
When it goes to sense the amount of the load the lid lock light flashes and doesnt go anywhere from there
There are two issue needs considering. Should you have very less load and get wrong setting so the sensor can not weight. Do you have any error code like F1, F51, etc...
Try to turn the drum by hand see if it is freely turn to make sure nothing was caught in between.
This motor has a nut that was loosen by time or by working with large load for long. Lift over the washer to the wall, then you can kneel down and look at the bottom. There is a 1/4 hex head nut-see if it is loosen and reset the unit again.
F1 code - the control board dead, need to call Wp for replacement, as far as I know, they cover 1 time part and labor for this code.
F51 code-motor issue or weight sensor, need to figure out which one cause problem.

Before you attempt to do anything please check if the drum lock is removed, check the power plug, connect the water line inlet. and finally check the settings of the program.
Read through the manual and DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO ANY REPAIR AS BEING A NEW SET you have warranty.
Call your dealer if the set hums even after the initial checks were done.

Swich off the machine, try some WD40 on the door mechanism (on machine lock, not on the door) and open & shut for a minute or two. Then try the machine, spin only just to try. Source
