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: Washing machine not spinning

HI! base in your complaint and explanations! i find the problem is the motor belt... maybe this is too loose belt... you can replaced a new one replacement belt... and make sure when you replace the belt is the same size in the original!

Take the lower front cover off, 3 screws on bottom.
Put bucket under right side, large round piece.
Unscrew large white round piece, dump change and lint out and put back together. I did it today.

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!

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.

Whirlpool cabrio W10106480A keeps giving Unbalanced Load message and tub bumps the sides very hard and loudly


follow this step and fix it. God bless you

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.

Ul keeps coming up i saw solutions about popping off cap but my carbrio doesnt have a cap


Hello,

The UL means UNBALANCED LOAD
The washer tries to balance the load automatically as soon as it has detected its off balance and the tub is wobbling. IF you find that the load isnt unbalanced and it keeps coming up(try a load without any clothing) the control board would need to be replaced.
Of course though try seeing if the legs need to be adjusted to level the washer.

Good luck,i hope i have helped you to undestand what is wrong with your washer,
Gene

What causes Cabrio washer to get unbalanced in spin cycle?


Try making sure that your draining hose isnt jammed all the way down the hole. When you installed it the u shaped accessory was needed for the draining hose. Try pulling the draining hose out...curve the front and zip tying it to your cold water valve. This will allow it to drain properly and not get water push back into the drum causing it to be unlevel
