PROBLEM RESOLVED!!!

The best I could find by scouring the internet was that it was a communication problem between the central control unit and the electronic control box. I was getting F1 codes that would stop the wash, then diagnostics showed F68 and F41 codes.
Sears wanted to charge $65 just to come out and diagnose it themselves, and these appliance sites wanted to charge their own fees to offer solutions. So I took a chance and ordered a new electronic control box ($146.00 + S&H) and installed it myself.
There are three long screws behind the control unit "hood", in the back-top of the washer, facing straight up and down. After unscrewing, I lifted up the hood up and forward, and there was a black box - the electronic control. First, you should check all the wires and make sure the connections are ok. If that still doesn't fix it, unplug all the wires, and take the electronic control out by unscrewing one 1/4" bolt. Put the new one in and re-wire everything (it shows what wires go where on the electronic control box - named by colors). No more error codes!

This washer is only a year and a half old as well, I guess it will pobably be my last Kenmore/Whirlp

SOURCE: start button not working on whirlpool cabrio

It sounds like your thermal fuse is out. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter, make sure your dryer is unplugged first! Or you can take the wires off the thermal fuse and use electrical tape to tape them together to see if it will come on.
CLICK HERE for the TECH SHEET on your washer... and HERE to see the thermal fuse.

Sometimes the plastic start button can break a little tab off the back as well, so check it as well.

SOURCE: Is there a reset button for my Whirlpool Cabrio

Check the lid switch and its actuator on the lid. The pause you're getting is likely an open lid sensed by the washer control. Also try to push and pull the inner tub up and down a few times - if I remember correctly these washers have a floating basket, which engages the gears when there is enough weight inside. If there is not enough clothes it may not wash correctly (I don't remember exactly, but try it anyway, what do you have to loose? ;) ).

SOURCE: Will start the wash cycle and DL come on and light

Hi,

"dl"indicates a door lock error. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
Check for the following when dl occurs:

  • Door Lock Mechanism broken.

  • Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects

  • Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)

  • Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure


Thank you !!

I have a Whirlpool Cbrio top load washer. it won't start it's cycle. Once it senses the load, the lock lid light flashes and it does nothing. can this be fixed?


I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.

My Whirlpool Cabrio top load washer won't start now but it first started by giving LD code when would wash only heavy items like full load of towels or bedding (all others ok). If I let it sit for awhile...


we ran into this problem with ours too. I swear, this washing machine is the biggest piece of junk I've ever bought.

We used to get the LD code at the beginning of each load of wash. We solved this by manually holding the lid down tight until the lock mechanism clicked in place. Once locked, it should stay that way for the duration of the wash cycle.

One day, it just stopped giving us locking problems.
