Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

Open Question

The clothes in my cabrio come out so tangled up and wrinkled that I now have to iron them no matter how much you try to untangle them or run through the dryer. The machine will not clean my king size sheets. I have found that they ill ball up in the bottom of the washer into a mushroom shape. They are extremely hard to get out of the washer and untangle and on top of that there are DRY SPOTS!!!! on my just washed sheets? The worst investment in my life and I have been a long time whirlpool user. NEVER AGAIN!!! Unless they will credit me something toward a new set or trade these out for a different set. I have done my family's laundry for the last 25 + years and have never been so disappointed in a Whirlpool product. HELP, Norman Reed 864.587.5987

SOURCE: "OL" error message

I believe that I had this same problem. The machine was skipping the wash cycle. After the water level rose to where you would expect the machine to go into an agitation cycle to wash clothes; it would start a spin cycle and drain the water. In the process of spinning it would stop to display the OL message over and over again as quick as you redistribute the load.

I found the problem to be clothes that got stuck underneath the impeller (round thing at the bottom center of the basket). Somehow I also had clothes get pulled down and got stuck underneath the basket next to the lint filter, these items were shredded to the point that they probably were not causing any issues, none the less they should not have been in there. Even though it was not the problem, I went ahead and took out and cleaned the lint filter since it was within reach.

This machine works a bit different then other machines. The agitation cycle is dependent upon the basket floating up and disengaging from the drive shaft. I guess the clothes that got stuck beneath the impeller did not allow the basket to float high enough to disengage from the drive shaft. Because the basket was still engaged to the drive shaft the drive motor would spin the basket and start a drain cycle rather agitate the load to wash it. The imbalance of the basket caused by the clothes stuck underneath the impeller kicked of the OL error since the basket was spinning at an unacceptable angle. I am not a repair dude but based on my observation of what I did to fix the problem this explanation works for me.

I've attached some pages of a repair manual that I found on-line to illustrate the areas that I am referring to.

SOURCE: clothes and sheets come out wrinkled and twisted

Try not to wash large items with small items the large items like sheet will twist around the small item. causeing twisting and wrinkling. Also If you are overloading the clothes or underloading the clothes they will come out wrinkled. I would try to do some testing wash a load of only towels then wash a load of only t-shirts and other light weight items that you may have. Then do just a load of your jeans. What happens? Please let me know

SOURCE: Clothes come out extremly wrinkled on top loding whirlpool washer

this machine spins at an extreamly high speed.if the load is to small the clothes will tangle together and wrinkle. it is normal for the clothes to be spun realy tight and come out of the washer nearly dry this is designed to cut down on drying time and save energy.

SOURCE: Dryer twists and knots up clothes

Many times, many types of Dryer have a variety of paddles. There are so many different ones, without your model, it's hard to know which your has, however, I have known many people that have had these problems.

  1. knots clothing;
    Solution: I have heard and seen a couple tennis balls or even a soft pair of tennis shoes used in the dryer whilst drying clothes keep this from happening. (again, the paddles make all the difference) I myself have always had Maytag, but even they are not what they used to be, however, the shoe trick works when we dry our large blankets and comforters.
  2. Length of drying time;
    Solution: Gosh, there could be many issues, but the first, I would think you either have too small exhaust tube, or it is kinked, smashed or the wrong type. Even the smallest of kink or flattening on many exhaust tubes will greatly effect the output of the exhaust. The only other thing could be overall length of exhaust, and possible clogging in the tube. Have a idea for a fix there as well. (if this is the rpoblem.
If you would like further discussions or ideas, please post here, and be sure to add as much info on dryer as you can, including year purchased and model number.

If the drying time has anything to do with my immediate thoughts (had similar problem when I just moved and reinstalled my own Maytag) I have a great fix to keep it from happening.

Whirlpool has been a good name for some years, in fact, they own Maytag now, so I am sure we can solve your issue as long as it isn't a problem with your particular unit itself as they do make a lemon evey now and again.

Why are my business shirts on a gentle cycle or any wash cycle so badly tangled togther?


Hi Stella,

I suspect the tangled shirts coming out of the washer is a result of the differences between the way a front loader vs a top loader clean clothes and can not be avoided. I don't think this is the source of the wrinkles though. I suspect the wrinkles are more a result of how long clothes remain in the dryer *after* the cycle has completed. If you remove the clothes *promptly* from the dryer and use a "dryer sheet" you will reduce / minimize the wrinkling you're seeing.

How to remove wrinkles from polyester table cloth?


After unfolding a new tablecloth, you'll quickly notice those pesky creases. Even after washing and drying the tablecloth, they may still be there and with wrinkles too. Before you iron a polyester tablecloth -- which if done incorrectly may burn, melt, stain or shrink the fabric -- try rewashing and drying it in a manner that reduces wrinkles and helps get rid of creases. Then, iron only if necessary.

This is normal. You can try a lower spin setting or smaller loads. The wrinkles will come out in your dryer.

Laundry too wrinkled


grabbed this of an official whirlpool web site: Clothing in the washer can become tangled and twisted or balled up.
Under certain conditions, a combination of the wash load, the cycle selected and the subsequent load movement can cause
the load to become tangled or twisted.
The wash impeller has been redesigned to make the wash load less likely to tangle under the conditions mentioned above.
Replace the wash impeller with part #W10141017.
willing to bet your serial number is before this number here. easy enough part to switch if its no longer under warr
SERIAL CODE RANGE: Prior to CU39

Close very wrinkled


I have the same problem with clothes being very wrinkled and clumped together after a full cycle. I believe it is not because of the spin cycle, but because the washer using very little water to wash the clothes, so they bunch up easily and are not free flowing. NOW, I try to use the cycle that uses the "Deep Clean" action or I activate it manually with all other cycles. It adds more water to the cycles and the clothes come out wrinkled, but not as much. Try it.
