Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Replaced drain pump and control board in cabrio washer, still does not work

Replaced drain pump, took to repair shop & was informed the control board is bad. Bought a control board, installed, ran the diagnostic test (stops at C8 - after acting like its cycling) and reads error F72. I had already removed the entire basket (found a sock and underwear..ha). Anyways, what the heck? If I could throw this thing out of a window, I would!! Maybe shoot it?? Please help, thank you!

Go back to the shop and ask them to explain why the diagnostic routine stops at C8 and reads error F72. No doubt they will blame it all on something else but you could get headed for a cure.

SOURCE: i have a cabrio washer

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!

SOURCE: washer will not drain has a code F72

Good you ran diagnostics, F 72 shows at c7 when the basket settles after draining the water out. F 72 is a basket re- engagement failure, does your machine go off balance easy? I need to know is the machine was purchased at Sears and the serial number. If so I will get a special phone number for recalls. I hope it is a Sears machine, we see if the hot line can schedule a tech to service the machine. What the recall line will need after confirmation of a Sears purchase is you name and phone number plus model and serial number of machine. Now they will also need the part numbers to order. When these parts are ordered they will ups them to you which at that point you call back so recall can get a tech out to repair the cabrio.
motor control unit part # W10201186
Washplate part # W10077050

Recall number for Sears machines only 1-800-659-7026
I appreciate the chance to help you today, I had a machine like yours today and yesterday with same issue:)

SOURCE: Our Whirlpool washer won't drain

this machine has the pump directly atached to the pump assy, so if the motor is runnning your pump will drain water. more likely is that when you put the unit back together perhaps you didnt plug the lid switch assembly bak in. if there is no lid switch detected the unit will not drain or spin and when it gets to that mode it will simply stall out. no noise or anything. will fill, agitate but not spin and/or drain/ check the lid switch!

SOURCE: F51 & F72 Codes

The F51 error code indicates that the control is not sensing proper motor movement through the signals from the RPS (rotor position sensor) circuit. This can be caused by several different problems. Make sure that you are not overloading the washer. Overloading can cause this problem. A toy or foreign object could be under the washer that is interfering with motor rotation. With the washer empty, spin the basket inside the washer tub to see if it spins relatively easily. If not, you could an item caught between the spin basket and the tub. You could have a wire harness problem causing signals to not be transmitted properly between the RPS and the machine control board. A failed RPS sensor or a failed control board could also cause this problem.

Basket Re-engagement Failure.

F then 72 flashes when the basket check routine fails to determine if the basket is re-engaged after being disengaged.
Is the basket floating? If yes, pump out water. See Long Drain.
Does basket turn freely? If not, determine cause of friction.

Tip

Checking the Drain Pump on a Whirlpool Cabrio


This advice explains step-by-step how to inspect for obstructions in the drain pump of a Whirlpool Cabrio. This model washer actually has TWO pumps. One is the drain pump, one is a recirc pump. The easiest way to access the pumps on a Cabrio is to tip the washer back and work from the bottom. There is a rear panel access you can remove for added access, but it limits your ability to get to the mounting bolts. These washers are heavy, however, and removing any excess water will help minimize weight and the potential mess you are going to have to mop up when you remove the drain line(s) from the pump. The easiest way to do this is to use a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the drain line. You may have to repeat this procedure several times as the Cabrio has an extra large capacity drum and tends to hold more residual water than most other washer models.

NOTE: Residual water in the wash tub, drain lines and pumps is NORMAL.

With the residual water removed, carfeully tip the washer back against the wall. Place a towel between the washer and wall to avoid marring of the washer or your wall.

NOTE: A second person is recommended to hold the washer in place so it doesn't not fall. When working alone, I have used blocks of wood (such as a 2x8 standing on edge) to block the washer up as a safety precaution.

As you are viewing the washer from the front, the drain pump will be on your RIGHT hand side. The recirc pump is on the left. Either pump comes out easily by following these steps:

1. Make sure the washer is UNPLUGGED before you begin.

2. Carefully disconnect the electrical connection.

3. Remove the mounting bolts that hold the pump in place.

4. Remove the inlet and drain hose(s) from the pump.

With the pump free, you can easily access the impeller area and retrieve anything that may be caught. Drill bits and screws are commnly found as they will pass through the small holes in the wash tub spin basket.

I would begin with the DRAIN pump, first. It tends to be the catch-all for everything. If the drain pump is clear, inspect the recirc pump as well.

To reinstall, follow the steps I have provided in reverse order. NOTE: Some people prefer to remove the the drain hose before unbolting the pump. Choose whatever method you prefer.

If the pump impeller is damaged, the pump will need to be replaced.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

I hope this information is helpful.

Y whirlpool cabrio washer is showing code 5D how do I fix


SD is Sud lock, too much soap, or clogged drain pump. Also check the pressure tube, make sure no gunk is in it. If none of that works, then replace the main control board.

I have A WhirlPool Cabrio.. when i start a load.. it flashes "FL' and beeps excessively.. how can i fix and prevent that?


Fl code indicates an overfill condition. If the washer is empty, then you likely have a problem with the water level pressure switch. If the washer is full of water and will not drain, you likely have a problem with the drain pump or the washer drain line.

If the washer is full of water, make sure that the washer drain is clear and working properly. Check the drain hose for kinks or clogs. If you find no problems with these issues, I recommend that you manually drain the washer using a wet/dry shop vacuum. Check the drain pump and connecting hoses for problems. You may need to replace the drain pump of water will drain out of the washer properly but the pump will not work properly. A clog in the check ball assembly at the bottom of the tub can also prevent the washer from draining properly.

Where is the lint trap in Whirlpool Cabrio washer


There is no "filter" on the washer. There is, however, a drain pump that can accumulate debris and need to be cleaned out. In fact, if this is a Cabrio, there are two pumps. The following link explains how to access them and check them for obstructions:

My whirlpool cabrio washer has ld code. have checked pump as well as inside the washer by taking basket out & nothing is plugged up. there was a small amount of water in drum when we removed basket....


Please see the following Whirlpool service manual for the Cabrio washer.

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.

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.
