To Access/replace the CCU:

#1

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.
#2

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.
#3

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.
#4

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.
#5

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.
#6

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.

SOURCE: Cabrio top load flashing F51

Was a far easier fix for me than all this RPS sensor hunting. For my Maytag's F51 error, there were socks lodged between the inner and outer tubs, causing too much friction on the motor. This led to the computer reading poor performance of the motor. Please consider trying this easy fix before calling out service personnel or replacing circuitry!!! I spent hours under the machine messing with the motor and circuitry until I looked up at the translucent tub and saw stray laundry stuck where it shouldn't be.
* Open the lid. Turn the bottom agitator by hand. Give it a good push. It should continue rolling on for several turns. If not, there is laundry stuck between the tubs causing friction.
1.) Pry open the metal case lid. Take two flat head screwdrivers and wedge them in the crack about 6 inches from the left corner, and use them as levers to pop the metal lid, then the right corner. Lift up the metal case lid and lean it against the wall.
2.) Take off the plastic ring that bridges the gap between the inner and outer tubs. There are many little catches all around the perimeter of the outer tub that hold on this plastic ring. Find those catches and put outward and upward pressure on those to release the catches.
3.) Look down in the gap between the inner and outer tubs for stray laundry. I used a retrieval tool (Lowes 403255) below to grab the socks. There were especially several socks in the back right corner near the pump inlet. Run the drain and spin cycle and look again. There were more strays hiding that I nabbed the second time!
4.) Snap the inner cover on by lining up all those catches and seating them. Snap the big metal lid back on by aligning and giving a good downward thump. Run the machine and be the hero, and don't be too mean to your wife about tossing those socks down in the crevices. Half hour and $3 for the retrieval tool is far better than all that RPS mess.

Kenmore 11025102310 washer isnt working. I press the start button, and the sensing button lights up for just a second and there is a couple of minutes of a grinding type of noise but then nothing.


SENSING Page 5

When the START/PAUSE/Unlock Lid is pressed, the washer will first perform a self-test on the lid lock mechanism. You will hear a click, the basket will make a slight turn, and the lid will unlock briefly before locking again. Once the lid has locked the second time, the washer will use short, slow spins to estimate the load size. These sensing spins may take 2 to 3 minutes before water is added to the load and you may hear the hum of these spins. If the sensing light is on, then washer is working properly. You will hear the motor turn the basket in short pulses to thoroughly wet the load. The washer will then move the load briefly, pause to allow water to soak in to the load, and resume adding water. This process may repeat until the correct amount of water has been added for the load. You may also hear water flowing through the dispenser, adding detergent to the load.

NOTE: Avoid opening the lid during sensing. The sensing process will start over when the washer is restarted. The sensing light may also come on during the Soak and Wash portions of the cycle. This is normal.


If there's no water, then Page 13

Washer won't run or fill, washer stops working, or wash light remains on (indicating that the washer was unable to fill appropriately)


Check for proper water supply.



Both hoses must be attached and have water flowing to

inlet valve.

Both hot and cold water faucets must be turned on.

Check that inlet valve screens have not become clogged.

Check for any kinks in inlet hoses, which can restrict water flow.


Or you have an inlet valve that is not working

I have a Whirlpool Cbrio top load washer. it won't start it's cycle. Once it senses the load, the lock lid light flashes and it does nothing. can this be fixed?


I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.

It is new and it will not even start the drum rotating in the sensing (initial) start up


The drum doesn't rotate in the sensing stage. This is when the washer is determining how much water will be needed based on the weight of the items in the washer. Once it has been determined, the water will go into the machine and THEN the agitation will begin.That's why the lid locks during the sensing stage: so we don't keep adding another item or two because that will throw off the calculations the machine is making when it's "sensing." My Cabrio is less than a year old and I still want to open the lid to see if there's enough water in there. But that's no longer necessary with all this new technology.
I hope this helps you out! If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice. Thanks!

Is there a reset button for my Whirlpool Cabrio Washer? Every time I start a load of laundry to wash, the washer puts the cycle on pause at least 5 times. I have to hit start, wait for it to beep, hit...


Check the lid switch and its actuator on the lid. The pause you're getting is likely an open lid sensed by the washer control. Also try to push and pull the inner tub up and down a few times - if I remember correctly these washers have a floating basket, which engages the gears when there is enough weight inside. If there is not enough clothes it may not wash correctly (I don't remember exactly, but try it anyway, what do you have to loose? ;) ).
