Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Should we buy a cabrio?

Our 5 year old Maytag top load trany just went out and a repair guy said it's not worth fixing. He suggested we buy a "Whirlpool" so now that is the only brand my wife is willing to look at. My understading is that a top line Maytag and a top line Whirlpool and made in the same plant with the same parts, they are just labeled differently. I don;t have a problem with either brand, we just want a modern looking washer that will last more than 5 years. Is 10 years asking too much? I beleive the main reason our washer wore out so soon was the fact that the previous home owners built a wooden 2" x 2" or 2" x 4" frame with 1/2" plywould over the basement floor drain, and put side by side w/d and utility tub on this unstable platform. So everytime the washer was out of balance, did it caused more damage to the washer? I have since thrown out the platform and the now worn out washer is pulled forward, away from the floor drain waiting for a replacement. So, did our trany go because it's a bad "Maytag" or the unstable platform? Also, is replacing a trany/belt a do-it-yourself repair or should I let the Maytag go? Bottom line, should we buy a top of the line Whirlpool or GE washer? I have heard good things about the GE fact that the back of the drum on a GE spins along with the rest of the drum.

WHIRLPOOL CABRIO, FLOODS MY FLOOR WITH EVERY CYCLE (NOT TO MENTION THE DAMAGE THAT HAS BEEN DONE TO MY FLOOR NOW), SOUNDS LIKE A JET TAKING OFF EVERYTIME. WILL COST APPROX. $500 TO REPAIR. AFTER READING...


because the same sort of thing happens right across the board they are all making the machines with cheap parts not only should there be alot more recalls but the whole industry needs a big kick up the bum about the quality of the products its bad for the enviroment repairers charge so much to fix em its not worth so we buy a new one and we know who wins there then your old one gets dumped into the enviroment years before it should of.

Display shows oL - Top-load washer


That oL is overload. You need to remove some clothes. On this model the motor can sense to much weight in the washer. If it does it without any clothes in there check for something jammed between the tubs.

I think my Maytag MAV6200AWW washer has a bad tub seal & bearing


if you have had this unit for over 5 years Then it is TOTALLY NOT worth the repair - if it is only a year or 2 old then call MAYTAG and they may offer a parts/labor concession. average life is 5-10 years now as sucky as that is!!

Hi! Can you help me decide if the Kenmore oasis 3.8pc is a good washing machine.


The Kenmore Oasis is made by Whirlpool for Sears. It is the same as the Whirlpool Cabrio. The Cabrio and the Oasis had a problem with the computer board. Whirlpool has been replacing the computer boards under a recall(mine was replaced recently). But I believe it is the model with no agitator in it. The one your talking about I believe is the one with the agitator. Whirlpool makes a good product. I would stay away from Maytag. Besides the recall problem I have had mine for over 2 years and it has worked fine. But I did get the extended warranty with it due to all the sensors and computer board can make repairs expensive.I have not had to use the extended warranty yet. My previous Kenmore washer was 12 years old and stopped working due to a rat chewed thru all the wiring and hoses. It would have cost me more to repair than what it was worth so I purchased the Cabrio.

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle


if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance

Older Maytag fills with water, but doesn't run.


I have a 20 year old A512 & replaced only a very few items on it (fill valves, belts & air gap).

I would troubleshoot it & repair myself....can you use a voltmeter & are you comfortable exposing the timer / wiring.

My guess is motor (or timer, but less likely since its dead in all cycles). but you've got to get a solid diagnosis so you can order parts.

I suggest oyu find a guy on Craigslsit to repair..
cheers

Load winding noise on rinse cycle


Mine did the same thing and I found out from the sevice guy holding a handful of change that coins can escape into the machine - which is ridiculous!!! My guy didn't get all the coins out and created a leak which he said could happen when a load throws water over the top. Uh what??? I am on the phone right now, 5 months later, trying to get someone other than A & E to come fix. And the dryer isn't the best either! Good luck and hopefully you have the extended warranty!

Load crunching noise


The motor has a 2 to 5 year warranty so if that's what the repair guy says I would go ahead and have it repaired. The noise can come from the pump, impellers or the motor. But if he's sure that's where it's coming from have it fixed by the repair service under warranty.

Maytag legacy series washer leaking


Price is right. Repair time is right for an inexperienced repairman. Worth it ? If you watch what you are doing and not rush then, yes, it's worth it.
