Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

Whirlpool Cabrio 580 is unbalanced and will not complete a wash sequence

I put in a load, add the soap and turn it on and it always gets hung up at 11 minutes left. It does not matter if I select Normal, Colors, Heavy Duty, Bulky Items, or Whites; they all stop about with about 11 minutes left and keep adding water to the load and then it will spin and get unbalanced and stop. If I reach in and move the clothes about and reposition the items, then it will stop spinning and get hung up. If I do get it to move forward, which never seems to happen then it will stop and keep adding more water and the process starts all over again. HELP!!!!!

SOURCE: Samsung front loading washing machine won't spin out.

I have the exact same symptom with mine that is only 4 months old. I have a technician coming as soon as the part is available. The problem is the PCB control board. Samsung has corrected a known issue with the original and has manufactured a new one. This is a known issue and thus the part is hard to get. I have, however found a temporary fix. Unplug the machine for about a half an hour. I haven't figured out how long to do it exactly but when you plug it back in it should read PF for power failure. It's the equivalent of a reboot for your pc. I got about 3 days of service from the machine before it stopped spinning again. Another reboot and I'm back in business.

SOURCE: Samsung front loading washing machine won't spin out.

We had the same problem. We ordered the washer on Black Friday and just got it this past Sunday. We put laundry in and it would not spin. We got the dc code. We have been on the phone with Sears for the week. A repairman came out to look at the washer today. He couldn't find anything wrong and had to call the tech people for help. They said if the washer is in a space that is below 60 degrees it won't spin because the oil in the back of the drum is too thick when it is cold. They have to order a new board to heat the oil. We thought they were crazy. So we did our own experiment and put a heater in the basement. The washer worked! Now we are just waiting for the new board to see if that solves the problem so we don't have to heat the basement just to wash clothes. I am glad we can at least heat the basement and wash clothes until the part comes. I will post after it has a new board!

Suggest me the best organic soap?

When it comes to selecting soaps for use, I always prefer going organic, because whenever I use Natural Skin Care soaps I feel more secure and better. These are much better than the normal soaps as well. They create no harmful effects on my skin. Non-organic soaps on the market are loaded with synthetic and artificial ingredients, which then cause skin allergies and irritations, not mentioning the dryness and itchiness they cause due to heavy loads of chemicals. With organic soaps, I am able to avoid all these because they pose no harm to my health but only give skin benefits, including moisturizing and nourishing.

My washer always gets unbalanced load with 7 minutes remaining.

This sounds like a problem with an unbalanced washer or unbalanced load. Your washer has four leveling rubber screws underneath. To keep it from rocking make sure all four points are touching the floor at all times. Washer machine being level is a great plus. Also it could be the amount of clothes put into the washer. The more clothes you put in the less chance of your load being uneven.

Whirlpool Cabrio gets unbalanced load at 7 minutes

Make sure load is properly sorted with like materials and paired up, do not mix things like towels with pants or shirts all together as different items absorb more water then others and can create unbalance when trying to enter final spin. If issue continues, it is very possible and item of clothing may have found itself stuck between spin basket and outer tub. This is very likely scenario due to design of this washer. If that is the case, spin basket must be removed then remove clothing to resolve issues.

Ul is displayed what does this mean

UL Stand for unbalanced load
probably the balance rods washer has 4 of them and they work like shocks for the tub and if they go bad than they allow the drum to spin wildly.

Washing machines are complex and have many functional components. It's always best to stop an unbalanced load, rearrange it, and re-start the washer.

70 Series Kenmore Washer Agitates in Heavy Duty regardless of switch selection

Yours is a 2 speed motor. Does it spin in 2 different speeds. If so, then it most likely is designed with only to agitate in 1 speed. If it only spins in one speed, then your motor is defective
