Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I keep getting an Ld code on my cabrio. It always has 14 minutes left. I even unplugged and replugged it, and it goes right back to the code. I had to have a new computer board put into it less than a year ago for $350. If I have to spend that again, I might as well have just gotten another one last time.

Long Drain Ld flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on. • Is the drain hose or the drain pump clogged? • Is the drain hose height greater than 96˝ ? • Is the pump running? If not, see TEST #7.
TEST #7 Drain/Recirculation Perform the following checks if washer fails to drain or recirculate. 1. See Activation of Manual Diagnostic Test Mode, and perform the Manual: Pumps test. 2. Remove the console to access the machine/ motor control assembly. See Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies. 3. Visually check that the P4 connector is inserted all the way into the machine/motor control. If visual check passes, go to step 4. If visual check fails, reconnect P4 and repeat step 1. 4. Remove connector P4 from the machine/ motor control and check resistance values of pump motor windings. Resistance values should match those shown in wiring diagram, page 7-1. If resistance values are good, go to step 7. If winding measurements are much higher (tens of ohms to infinity) than shown in wiring diagram, a problem exists in the motor winding or in the connection between the machine/motor control and the motor. Go to step 5. 5. Tilt machine forward to access the bottom of the machine and the pumps. 6. Check the resistance at the pump motor. Remove the connector at the motor and take measurements across pump terminals. Measurements should be as shown in the wiring diagram. If winding measurements are much higher (tens of ohms to infinity) than shown in wiring diagram, replace the pump motor. If the resistance at the pump motor is correct, there is an open circuit in the wiring between the motor and the machine/ motor control. Repair or replace the lower wiring harness. If the pump motor windings and machine/ motor control check OK, repair or replace the pump. Be sure to check the pump and tub sump for foreign objects before replacing pump. 7. See Activation of Manual Diagnostic Test Mode, and perform the Manual: Pumps test. 8. If the Manual: Pumps test failed, then the machine/motor control has failed: Unplug the washer or disconnect power. Replace the machine/motor control assembly. Perform the Manual: Pump test.

My whirlpool front loader cabrio stopped working with 12 minutes left in the cycle. The Ld code is flashing and I don't know how to fix it so that the load will spin and drain. How do I fix this...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Ld means long drain and is displayed when it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out the water to a point where the pressure switch resets. To solve this problem make sure that the drain filter pump assembly located inside the bottom front panel is clean and after cleaning if the error returns then the pressure switch needs to be tested and if bad then it needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have the whirlpool Cabrio model WTW6600SB2. We keep getting the code LD when we use the normal rinse cycle. Also trying to do a clean with bleach cycle and t is supposed to go 60 mins and goes less...


The LD:
Ld (F32) Long Drain "Ld" flashes when water level drop ain't sensed by that fancy lectronic control.
Check these things out:
Drain pump fouled/clogged
Drain hose too high for propah pumpin.
Pressure hose tubing clogged/pinched came loose from that fancy control upstairs.

Cabrio won't spin and has standing water


The coupling might have broken in place and will not allow the motor to do its job. It's a $7 part that goes on the motor shaft.

LD is on my display-nothing will clear it and washer doesnt drain


the ld code means a long drain, what you probably have is something blocking the drain pump.
you can get to the drain pump from the back of the unit and it will be the pump on the left as you face the back.
you will need to remove the hose going into the pump and be ready for water to come out. sorry but you need to check inside the hose as there will be something blocking it. like a coin or some lint or a small sock.
when you get the item out of the hose then it should work again. you do not need to reset the control. once it knows the unit is draining properly it will be ok.

Cabrio Washer LD error code


Is there water in the bottom of the tub? If yes then open back of washer and remove drain pump (on left side) and pull off of tub and clear whatever is blocking its impeller.
If the water is all gone and drained but pump stays on for several minutes and then gives "LD" fault then open back and check the small clear tube that is attached to the tub. Make sure is not blocked with debris and check tube and tub for anything that could block the small clear tube. If these are ok then remove 3 screws in back of the control panel, pull open control panel and check the clear tub all the way up from the tub to the washer controller board (computer) make sure it is not kinked or disconnected. If not then the problem is most likely the pressure sensor on the (computer). This unit will have to be replaced.
You can test the sensor by doing the following: 1. When the "LD" fault comes on start by pressing the pause button. then pull the clear tube off of the computer board. Then attach a tight fitting drinking straw over the sensor. Press the start button and wait for 60 seconds - If the washer does not start the spin cycle on its own after the 60 seconds then **** on the drinking straw that you attached to the pressure sensor earlier. The sucking action should reset the sensor thus telling the computer that the water is drained and it will start the spin cycle. Just remember if you have to do this to get the washer to spin - that means the sensor is damaged most likely from moisture traveling up the tube over time. The computer board will need to be replaced. I believe it costs $205 without shipping. Hope this helps.

I have a cabrio washer and keep getting LD error code, washer looks to drain fine but won't advance on to spin cycle - sits there for a few minutes trying to drain even though no more water is in tube,...


Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!
When it is a code the machine is telling you that there is a fault and the electronic system needs to be diagnosed by a trained tech.
My advise is,
You spent enough money buying that Cabrio to be experimenting and guessing and buying expensive parts for it!
Let the tech fix it 123 and your done. It may not have needed the drain pump and now that money could have covered the service call!


If so here is a good company that's found nation wide.
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
1(800) 905-9505

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!
