Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer
After washing our cloths in the cabrio washer they are almost always twisted up in knots. We try and skake out all the wrinkles before putting them in dryer but after drying they still have most of the wrinkles. we were wondering if it was the way the agitator worked the washer.
I have the same problem with clothes being very wrinkled and clumped together after a full cycle. I believe it is not because of the spin cycle, but because the washer using very little water to wash the clothes, so they bunch up easily and are not free flowing. NOW, I try to use the cycle that uses the "Deep Clean" action or I activate it manually with all other cycles. It adds more water to the cycles and the clothes come out wrinkled, but not as much. Try it.

I am a repair tech authorized whirlpool service. This washer is not my fav.
I do not get many services calls for ball ups or twisted wrinkle clothing.
not too sure why? I work in a well populated area. I had one the other day
It ended up I called the factory to see if they had any solutions.
They said you must select the correct cycle for the clothing. They also said never was shirts with pants, Humm...:( or towels I get that towels should be washed as a towel load only no matter the washer type. They said you mush place the clothing in a drop type pattern Not stretched long ways around the wash plate. But like a pile. Humm... What about the wrinkles I asked. The tech I spoke to said it was from the related issue of not dropping the cloths in correctly. Do not lay cloths in the basket in a line pattern Ok, My option I say more water would help. Not to stick up for Whirlpool but it is not all there fault. It was mandated that washers consume a set amount of water during one cycle. Much like the low flow toilet That we all flush twice come on you know you do:) we are all in the same boat. we just have to find a better way to wash our clothing with less water. soon some nerd will come up with cloths that do not need water to get clean. clothing that will be able to to read you health.
