Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water in the basket floatation rings.

I pulled the basket out of the tub to retrieve socks and stuff that had fallen between the two. When I pulled the basket out it sounded like there was water in the floatation rings. Is there a fix to getting the water out or should I just replace the whole basket.

Kenmore washing machine will not drain water /spin cycle

There is likely an object (like a sock) lodged in the drain hose that runs from the tub to drain pump. It could be in the hose in which case a squeeze will verify, or jambed against the drain pump impellers. It could even be between the inner basket and outer tub covering the drain hole. Regardless it is usually easily retrievable with a little ingenuity as well as a little to big mess of water. So prepare for the water if you losen a hose. Unplug the machine before you start because electricity and water are never a good combination. A wet dry vac works good to remove standing water in the tub and you can even hold the nozzle over a loosened hose to remove water from it as it pours out. Let me know if you run into difficulty.

When I hand turn the drum I still hear water behind the drum please help

You most likely are not hearing water remaining in the tub. You are hearing the water slosh around in the balance ring that is attached to the spin basket. There is a balance ring attached to the spin basket that is half filled with water. When the basket is turned by hand you will hear the water in the balance ring. This is normal.

Can small socks get caught under the agitator and disappear ?

YES you would be surprised what can get under their and get between the basket and the outer tub. In working on these I have pulled out mesh shorts , small hand towels ect, If enough stuff gets under there it can cause numerous problems like a code 51 where the motor senses to much drag on the motor because the basket will not spin as free as it should, it may also cause a slow drain issue as well.It is always best to put small items in a mesh bag to prevent this from happening

Is leaking water at the back and running in the floor the hoses are tight drain pipe is in right

Here's what I've seen. Water will be full, machine goes to spin/drain and expects the water to be pumped out as predicted. If pump is clogged, the pump cannnot pump out water quickly enough and the spinning causes the water to spill over the back of the tub, between the tub and balance ring. The balance ring is never sealed tightly to the tub so water will get through. Fill the basket with water, extra high, hold lid switch down, and see if it drains out fast enough so water doesn't spin out. If this is the case, pull pump, dislodge debris.

Kenmore HE2Plus washer. It sounds like a pin or other metal object may have fallen through the holes of the drum. You can hear it roll around when you spin the drum. Is there any way to remove it without...

Overfilling loads can cause small objects like pins, coins, and small socks to get between the tub abd Basket of your washer.

The basket is held onto the rear half of the outer tub simply by the bolt to the main pulley.
Remove the bolt, remove the pulley, and the basket shaft should slip right out of the bearings of
the rear tub.

Simply shining a light around between the basket and outer tub should confirm that there is something in there, since you have access to do this with
the front tub removed. Go ahead, remove the pulley and bolt, and if
the basket comes out, then check everything out.

If it doesn't, don't try pounding it out; stop there and go to plan B, which is a new basket
and tub assembly.

Washer is in rinse cycle but stopped working. full of wet clothes and water in tub. don't know what to do

Sounds like the lint catch basket, located with the drain pump is clogged with lint, debris or even socks. (I found 4 pairs in one once) Its located at the bottom right side. Look for a twist cap lid. Before unscrewing it, I suggest you pull the unit away from the wall and tip it back at almost 45 degrees, this will keep most of the water from shooting out at you and your floor when the cap is removed. The basket is attached to the cap.

Kenmore Washing Machine-front loader

There is a small gap between the metal basket and the plastic tub. Small items - especially small socks and silky clothing can slip through to reach the pump. Wash these items in a mesh laundry bag.

This is a "normal" characteristic of all front load machines. Only a Maytag Neptune positively addresses this issue. They have a long, thin, fine brush between the basket and tub which consistently prevents this issue in their machines.
