Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

Open Question

Whirlpool Cabrio Washer always Unbalanced (Model WTW6300SW0)

My washer worked ok for the first couple of years. Although, my wife complains that is does not clean as well as our previous 14 year old machine which we gave away in working condition unfortunately.

For the last couple of months it will not wash a load without going into an Unbalanced condition, with loud banging, multiple times. Re-arranging the items does not help. It makes no difference if the washer has a small or large load.

There is liquid in the top ring that can be heard sloshing around when the ring is spun.

It is not a User Problem as we have been able to competently operate it for a couple of years.

I have raised the cover, and except for significant rust on the frame, all looks normal with the suspension.

The washer also leaks although all the hose fittings are secure.

Is a repair manual available on-line?

SOURCE: Washer makes loud thumping after finished spin cycle

Remove washer cabinet (easy to remove)and check that "base pads" (there are 3 pads, located under the main tub)are not worn. In case they are worn (even one of them), you should replce them all. Good luck !!

is the pump gray or white? if it is gray then replace it.look where the pump mounts to the ,otor and see if there is a black line coming from the middle.this is probably where your leak is.
just change the pump.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Washing machines are complex and have many functional components. It's always best to stop an unbalanced load, rearrange it, and re-start the washer.

Ld error code model wtw6300sw0

Water level is not dropping while the pump is running. So you must have something blocking the pump. See page 65

WTW6400 Every time it goes to the spin cycle it is unbalanced and shuts down.Ive checked for level and proper loading.Any ideas?

Mine does the same thing every time. It knocks and bangs and scares the dog as well as guests. Sometimes it fixes itself and sometimes not. Seems to me that there is something in the suspension that has weakened over time. Have not seen anything written about that though. Possibly the liquid in the balance ring is obstructed from moving around properly to act as a counter balance. Our floor is concrete and the machine is level. As we could operate the machine competently for a couple of years, it's doubtful that the problem is operator error!
For a couple of years it worked fine. Well, it functioned but my wife has complained from the beginning that it does not get clothes as clean as our old inefficient machine which we gave away in working order but would like to now have back. One corner of the porcelain turned yellow from the bleach fumes. The frame under the cover is rusty. When the machine goes into UL mode, it leaks.
Initially we had a problem with it ruining clothing in every load following a load of whites with bleach. It saves a few drops of bleach to deposit on our colored king bed sheets and some nice shirts. A new valve replaced under warranty remedied the problem, although it is not clear why it did so. The Whirlpool factory tech reversed the hot and cold water supply hoses. We had a couple of cold showers until I figured out what he had done.
Our whirlpool microwave quit after 5 years. We were told it needed 2 new circuit boards which cost more than the unit did when we purchased it.
I have always tried to buy American, as hard as it is. Our next appliances are going to be from Japan or Germany and not Whirlpool.

What causes Cabrio washer to get unbalanced in spin cycle?

Try making sure that your draining hose isnt jammed all the way down the hole. When you installed it the u shaped accessory was needed for the draining hose. Try pulling the draining hose out...curve the front and zip tying it to your cold water valve. This will allow it to drain properly and not get water push back into the drum causing it to be unlevel

Hi there.

Sorry to hear this. Some washers are notorious for this. I would buy a different brand next time.

Untill something breaks - try loading the machine with a couple of towels when doing sheets - aiming to keep the drum 70% full when loaded.
It's often when there's only 1/2 load that things get unbalanced.

Hope this helps.
