SOURCE: Washing Machine wont spin/agitate

The most common problem is the lid switch. with a screw driver in hand open the lid and press down on the lid switch. sometimes the mounting screws will crack the switch housing and the striker can't move the actuator far enough. I am interested in the clicking noise, as this could indicate a pump issue or a sock seizing up the tub.

there is a possibilty the drain pump maybe locked up by a small foreign object such as a small nail tooth pick drill bit or even a coin check that.if that does not solve them problem then the timer or control board may need to be replaced

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 washer model WTW5610XW0 type 588-02 spins then stops and clothes still come out wet.

The washer is unbalanced, make sure it is level and the clothes are distributed even, if this have been check. put the unit on cold water and see how fast it comes in. Safety programmed into the unit if it takes longer then 10 minutes to fill it will just drain. This is to keep the washer from flooding out. Check the water inlet where the hose screws on, it could be plugged up with grit

Cabrio washer stops spinning and doesn't restart

it sounds like the water pump is not emptying properly, blow down the water outlet pipe to see if is clear if not go to the water pump and clean it out there is probably a button , paper clip or other debris preventing it from doing its job eric

Washes but locks on spin cycle does not spin or dran

Does the lid lock when it gets to the drain cycle? If not then you need a new locking mechanism. The tab in the mechanism breaks off and it tries to lock the lid but cant. If it hums when it gets to the drain cycle, you have something caught in the pump or a bad pump

Whirlpool cabrio wtw5500xw1 will not spin

This is caused by a major design flaw in this washer. I have the same washer and am having the same problem. If you take the back cover off by removing the small metal cover over the tube coming from the controls and all the screws around the large lower metal cover, you can gain access to the back of the washer. Take the foam noise reduction pad out of the bottom of the washer. There is a white opaque plastic shroud on the bottom of all the motors covering the belt. Remove it by taking out the screw in the front bottom and back bottom of the shroud. You will most likely see that the belt fell off. This is because the drive pulley for this washer has no ridge on it to keep the belt on and most likely rubbed on the shroud and cut a perfect groove in the shroud, allowing the belt to fall off. SHORT STORY: This washer is a piece and you are probably out of warranty. There is no actual way to fix this problem unless Whirlpool has made a new drive pulley that has a ridge on it to keep the belt on the two pulleys. Good luck. I bought mine for $700 and it worked for two years before this happened.

The lid will not lock, therefore the washer will not drain or spin


Replace the door lock.

If the door lock is not at fault, then replace wiring harness between door latch and control board.
