Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

Whirlpool Cabrio top load washer bleach and detergent will overflow.

Ran the machine through the automatic diagnostic test and both the bleach dispenser and the detergent dispenser overflowed. Water from the bleach dispenser will leak onto the floor, while water from the detergent dispenser will flow into the tub. I can duplicate the problem in the automatic diagnostic test mode but not the manual. In manual mode, I can run the valves forever, switching between hot, warm, and cold water settings without an issue. A repairman tested the resistance of the water inlet valve solenoids and stated they were fine. He recommend replacing the control board at a cost of $436.00. After running numerous automatic and manual diagnostics tests, the overflowing only occurred once more, when in the beginning it happened every time. Is the water inlet valve the culprit and not the control board? Whirlpool has a service point bulletin that recommends changing the bleach dispenser for overflow problems.

Change the bleach dispenser.

Also make sure the tubes are not slightly clogged from residue build up of mildew.

Try cleaning your inlet valve filters. Turn off your water supply and remove the hoses from the washer. The filter screens are located just inside of the valves. Just twist them out, clean, and reinstall.

Good luck.

Check cold hose to see if it is clogged or the filter in the end of it is. Make sure water freely coming out from the tap. If that is all ok then replace the watter control valve on the cold side.

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio HE top loading washing machine, 2 yrs. old., little black pieces of grime are everywhere inside of it.


if you are using powder detergent it will be detergent reside
you will have to pull the agitator and inner tub out to clean it all out, then use only liquid detergent
talk wit a repair shop as to how to do that or download a workshop manual for the machine

I have a Cabrio washer model #WTW7340XWO. I have had 4 shirts ruined with bleached out spots all over them after washing in this machine. We use NO bleach in the detergent. What is wrong?


Hi

It seems that it needs cleaning... you can run your washer with nothing inside it at its hottest temperature setting with 2 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this clean the drain pump assembly completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the spots should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I do most of my shopping online and liquid bleach sometimes doesn't ship without breaking. Is it OK to use dry or powder bleach? I have the whirlpool cabrio top load large capacity model.


It should be okay to use dry bleach, if you follow the instructions on the bleach. Some bleaches require dissolving in water first, others can be used dry.

New whirlpool wtw6500ww cabrio washer has overflowed with water every load I ran today. What am I doing wrong? It ran over with every size load.


There is a clear hose that goes from the tub to the pressure sensor on the control board. It tells the washer when to shut off the water. It is probably either punctured or disconnected, or the pressure switch needs to be replaced. If it's new its probably still under warranty and you should have whirlpool fix it.

Dont' know where to add bleach alternative


yes clorox 2 or "dry type" bleach should be put in with the detergent. only liquid bleach will go into the bleach dispenser.
also be sure to use soap that is "HE" type or you will get too many suds and a washer that will smell from not rinsing out.

Can I use color safe bleach in my new cabrio, and if so where do I put it?


According to the manual on pages 12 & 13.

1.
Place a load of sorted clothes into the washer. See “Laundry
Tips.”
■ Load evenly to maintain washer balance. Mix large and
small items. Items should move easily through the wash
water.
■ Load only to the top of the basket as shown. Overloading
can cause poor cleaning. Items need to move easily
through the wash water.
2. Pour measured powdered or liquid High Efficiency detergent
into the detergent dispenser. Always use the detergent
dispenser, and do not put detergent directly onto clothes in
the washer.
3. Add color-safe bleach (powdered or liquid) to this dispenser,
if needed. Be sure to match powdered color-safe bleach with
powdered detergent or match liquid color-safe bleach with
liquid detergent.
4. Pour measured liquid chlorine bleach into the liquid chlorine
bleach dispenser, if needed. Bleach is diluted and
automatically dispensed at the proper time during the wash
cycle.
■ Do not overfill. Do not dilute. Do not use more than 1 cup
(250 mL) for a full load. Use less with a smaller load size.
■ Follow the garment and the chlorine bleach
manufacturer’s directions for proper use.
■ To avoid spilling, use a cup with a pouring spout. Do not
let bleach splash, drip, or run down into the washer basket.
■ At the end of the cycle, a small amount of water may be
left in the dispenser. This is normal.
NOTE: Use only liquid chlorine bleach in this dispenser.

5. Pour measured liquid fabric softener into the fabric softener
dispenser, if desired.
■ Do not overfill. The dispenser holds 3 oz (94 mL), or a
capful of fabric softener.
■ The fabric softener is dispensed in the final rinse. If Extra
Rinse is selected, the fabric softener will be dispensed
during the Extra Rinse.
■ Do not spill or drip any fabric softener onto the clothes.
■ At the end of the cycle, a small amount of water may be
left in the dispenser. This is normal.
NOTE: Use only liquid fabric softener in this dispenser.
6. Close the washer lid.
7. Press POWER. This turns on the washer display.
8. Select a Wash Cycle. See “Cycles.”
9. Select the desired Modifiers. See “Modifiers.”
10. Select an Option, if desired. See “Options.”
11. Select Delay Wash, if desired. See “Delay Wash” in the
“Modifiers” section.
12. Press START. The wash cycle begins, and the display shows
the estimated remaining time. The lid will lock.
NOTE: If you do not press Start within 5 minutes of pressing
Power, the washer automatically shuts off.


The way that I read the manual, your color safe bleach would go in the detergent dispenser. Your liquid chlorine bleach would go in the bleach dispenser.
