Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer
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.
