SOURCE: Whirlpool Cabrio top loading washer F1 Error

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.

SOURCE: My washer keeps stopping at

Hi.

UL is displayed when there is a balancing problem or when balancing sensor is defective.

The first thing to do is checking floor level and putting the machine at balance as explained in the user manual also try distributing the load
. If that does not work there are internal faults that may trigger the fault code. The balancing sensor and the electronic control board must be tested. The machine must be disassembled to locate the problem.

If you need parts see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

SOURCE: Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer won't aggitate

My Whirlpool WTW6600 had the same problem. The tub no longer floated up and down on the center shaft, so it only spun, not agitated. You must remove the tub (with some effort) and lightly sand / clean the center shaft. Lube it lightly with wheel bearing grease so that after it is reassembled, you can pull the tub upward and feel about 1/2" movement. This will enable the proper gear assembly to engage. It can spin when it rests at the bottom of its travel, but once you fill the tub, it floats, moving upward, and engaging the agitation gear. Good Luck!

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.

Shakes when its spin


it could either mean the load is uneven in the washer or 1 leg on the bottom could possibly be screwed in more than the rest.

Your load is uneven, try spreading the load evenly before spin cycle.
