The model is a Whirlpool Cabrio model # WTW6400SW3 Here is a link to two videos. The first on shows what the problem is and the 2nd one shows the diagnostic. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I had someone tell me that its probably the control board. I'm not sure if anyone has seen the video yet so I'm attaching a link to it on youtube. Take a look at it. Thanks

    I changed the valve assembly in it but before I did, I check the machine one more time. It started working again mysteriously. I changed the valve assembly and it continued working for a while then it came back. I suspect that moisture is getting on something that's causing it to act this way. Is there something down inside the machine that would cause it to act this way? A sensor of some kind?

F50 - This is a motor stalled failure. If this persists you will eventually need to call in a service engineer to repair it as the machine will eventually stop working altogether.

F1 means the control board is shot. Call whirlpool and they should take care of the parts and labor even though your machine is out of warranty.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F35 error means that there is some sort of issue with the steamer electronic board and analog pressure sensor has gone bad. Check that the hose is firmly attached with the washer and is not blocked. You can also check the water level pressure switch operation. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    I just purchased my Cabrio washer...have had it a week. When I use the normal cycle, the machine does not spin the clothes at the end of it so when they cycle is done the clothes are dripping wet. I then...

    I have had my Cabrio washer a little over a year. No it isn't suppose to do that. There is a setting for spinning high medium and low spin. Maybe you can change the spin setting manually. See if that works The washer is computer operated so the spinning cycle must be out on your normal cycle. I did myself a favor and I keep all clothes on towels and sheets. I set the temp for the water on what I would like manually. The washer fills up with more water and seems to clean the clothes better and My washer does the same thing from time to time about not spinning. Just remember you can set all wash manually with water temp and spin cycle. Is your washer still under warrenty?

    Sorry to have to tell you, this machine is junk. Google search "Whirlpool Cabrio" and see the number of complaints for this model. Here is one you can see, has 46 pages of complaints.

    Soon after washer is on a f1 sign will light up, ans the cycle

    There is a recall for this. Contact whirlpool @ 1-800-253-1301 and have your model/serial number ready. Tell them you have been getting the F1 code error on the Cabrio. Tell them you have been reading on the internet about a recall. They may tell you there is no recall but be persisitent. They will then tell you they will make repairs "as a courtesy". Make sure they are going to cover parts and labor. They will then schedule someone to come out and inspect the washer. When they come out ask them about a updated washer plate. The guy who came out for mine also got me a new wash plate. He said that the new plate helps the clothes from "balling" up.

    Push start button on control panel - machine does not start

    only 2 things can cause this.
    1 the control is set to lock out mode. just hold the lock button for 5 seconds and it should go back to normal mode.
    or 2 the controls user interface has an internal failure. its the part that has the switches and tells the computer what to do. either way call whirlpool and see if its still covered by their warranty.
    of yeah and the 3rd thing is you have no power to unit. make sure the outlet is good by trying something else in the same outlet, like a light or hairdryer.
