SOURCE: door wont open on Whirlpool washer cabrio display says du

To Access/replace the switch:


Unplug the Whirlpool Cabrio power cord from the wall outlet. Turn off the water supply to the washing machine. Pull the washer away from the wall so that you can access the screws behind the control console. Remove the hex head screws securing the control console to the washer with a nut driver. The screws are on the lower rear edge of the control console.

Lift the control console up, and rotate the console forward so that the face of the console is resting on the top of the washer. Locate the interface board cable connector to the right of the plastic tube on the back of the console. Pull the end of the connector straight out of the control console. The primary machine control is the box that the plastic tube connects.

Place small pieces of masking tape around the nine wires connecting to the primary machine console. Label the wire locations onto the masking tape with a pencil. Grasp each wire at the connector with your fingers, and pull the wires away from the primary control. Pull the plastic tube out of the primary control.

Locate the nut toward the bottom of the primary control. Remove the nut with a nut driver. Lift the front of the primary control slightly, and slide it down to disengage the retaining clips. Pull the primary control out of the control console. Insert the new primary control into the control console. Slide the primary control up to engage the lower clips. Secure the primary control to the console with the single hex head screw.

Push each of the wire connectors into their respective positions on the primary control until they lock into place. Push the plastic tube hose over the port on the right side of the primary control. Remove the small pieces of masking tape from the wires.

Position the control console back upright on the top of the washer. Secure the control console to the washer with the three hex head retaining screws. Slide the washer back against the wall. Turn on the water supply and plug the washer into the wall outlet.

What does code uL mean. this comes on in the drain spin cycle

Hi, a UL error code means a load not balanced. The washer is running a load-balance correction routine. Please allow the washer to continue. If the dial is flashing and the washer has stopped, redistribute the load, close the lid, and press START/PAUSE.

Wont start.buzzes.unplug to turn off

Possible unbalanced load in the washer. I have found this to be the case in other types of top load washers. Just redistribute the load the try again. If this works, washer is doing what it needs to do to keep from spinning madly out of control and extending its life!

Cabrio washer with uL code. Will not operate properly after resetting & not even with small load.

if it went thru the mini-cycle to redistribute the lad of clothes and it continues to flash uL then open the lid and manually redistribute the load,if this doesn't correct the problem,then try unplugging the unit for 15 minutes to re-set the ecu control unit and re-plug in and retry it

UL keeps coming on the screen, will spin for 1 or 2 minutes and then UL shows up again

Hi, UL means Unbalanced load in Whirlpool Cabrio....
UL is displayed when the machine/motor control detects an off-balance load, and is steady on while the washer runs a mini-cycle to rebalance the load. Display clears if mini-cycle successfully rebalanced the load. If the mini-cycle is unsuccessful, uL will flash until the door lid is opened, allowing the customer to view and redistribute the load....

Error code UL with 12 minutes remaing on each load


This error code indicates that an unbalanced load is detected.

if the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while attempting to balance the load at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press Start/Pause.

If the washer is not level, the washer may be more sensitive to unbalanced loads. The washer must be level from side to side and from front to back. The front and rear feet must be in firm contact with the floor. Make sure the locknuts are tightened.

If Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work
Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
Re-select the cycle and press Start/Pause.

Machine keeps getting a ue code. i try to redistribute weight, it starts to spin, then stops again. I removed a sock from the drain at bottom left of machine, but still wont work. what next?

You may have to unplug the washer for a few minutes to reset the control...
Too small of a load will also cause balance problems...

Here is a tip that I wrote about that code...

Washer is not spinning fast. It spins just not fast enough to get the water out of the clothes.

Most washers have a speed limiter in them to prevent the unit from damaging itself "IF" it is severely out of balance. Your solution is to redistribute the load, so it will not be out of balance and/or wash smaller loads so the machine can redistribute the load itself.

Hope this helps..

Will not drain/spin. Yesterday, the load was out of balance...

Try unplugging the washer and let the curcuit board reboot. Unplug for 5 min. Then try moving the selector to spin to drain the washer. Sometime selecting too many modes trying to get something working can confuse the electronics. Reboot the curcuit board and try just spin cycle.

Try this first.

Washer won't drain or spin
Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 96" (2.4
m) above the floor?
Is your voltage low?
Check electrical source or call electrician. Do not use an
extension cord.
Is the "SUD" routine active?
Cycle will complete once extra suds are removed.
Is the load balanced?
A single or bulky item may cause imbalance. Add more items
or redistribute the load.

Stopped operating in the spin cycle

With a heavy blanket you probably have an out-of-balance condition which doesn't let the machine spin out and drain. This would keep the door lock from opening. Try hitting the Stop button twice. This should cancel the cycle and let the door lock open after a little while. Then either redistribute the load or add some items and run a Spin and Drain cycle.
