Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer
I just wanted to know if there is a way to check to see if something is stuck in the drain hoses inside the washer! I hear something in there, clacking around when it drains! I wanted to let you know that i had an f 51 error on my machine last noght and i couldn't get it running after several calls to lowes and whirlpool they finally gave me a phone number to a tech that didn't answer his phone this morning but anyways I think i fixed it thanks to your advice I just spun the tub by hand a few times and now it is working! If I would have know how many problems i would have with this washer i would have never have bought it! I had to return one due to a "sd" code then the new one i got had a "ld" error and now i had this f-51! You almost have to be married to a tech to own one! but thanks for being here and giving your advice you just helped a mother of three get the laundry done without having to wait around on a tech Thank you!!!!!
Hate to say it, but the F51 code is a "Rotary Position Sensor". This sensor mounts on the stator, and is'nt a very easy job to replace. It might come back again I hate to say. The "ld" error is a "long drain" code. Be sure that the drain hose from the washer when it goes down in the drain line is'nt down in there to far. Should just go 4-6" inches down. The clacking you heard may have been something in the pump, and may have cleared itself (hopefully). As far as service techs go, there are quite a few leaving the industry (just ask the people at Sears who are taking a beating). So many problems, not enough people to cover the stuff. Probably going to get worse I hate to say it. Dont blame Lowes, once they sell it, the manufactures warranty takes over. Well, enough complaining. If you ever need info again, just shoot a message to hear again, or email email@example.com and maybe we can help (hopefully). Ha.
