Question about Whirlpool WTW6600SW Top Load

1 Answer

I am attempting to pull out the basket of my whirlpool cabrio washer model wtw6600sw0...it is stuck...I mean stuck...any recommendations? I am about to attempt a self-built puller, but I am unsure if the metal ring is part of the basket hub or not...or maybe I should ask it this way...is the basket hub plastic only or is the outer metal ring of the shaft assembly actually part of the basket? Thanks!!

SOURCE: rear tub bearing replacement

The shaft on the spinner basket may have worn and formed a groove, or, if the bearing seal was leaking, the shaft may be stuck because of rust. The best way I know how to get the spinner basket out, is to try spraying the shaft with a lubricant like penetrating oil, or WD-40 and letting it sit a while. Allow the lubricant to settle into the area where the shaft seats into the bearing. If this does not provide you with any luck, place the outer drum face down on something to elevate the spin basket up off the floor. I suggest using a couple of saw horses, or blocks of wood. Allow the outer shell to rest on supports, leaving the spin basket free. Place some padding or old towels on the floor underneath the basket. Take a mallet (I prefer a rubber mallet, as it tends to be less abusive) and tap on the end of the drum shaft. The spin basket should pop free and drop from the tub shell. I hope this helps you.

PS You only have to elevate the basket and tub off the floor enough to allow the spin basket to drop free of the tub. About a foot is all I would recommend. Make sure you inspect and clean the spin basket shaft once you get it removed. Some very fine emery paper is what I would recommend to make sure the shaft is not scored or have any rough areas. DO NOT use any electric sanders or dremils for this! It should be clean and smooth before re-installing. If you cannot get the basket free, or if you do, and the shaft is damaged, you may consider replacing it as well. Placing a damaged shaft into a new bearing may not seal properly.

SOURCE: replace bearing

You can try a puller but typically it is recommended to replace the entire rear outer tub half (which comes with the bearings already pressed into it). You will also need the tub seal that goes between the front and rear tub halves. Hope this helps.

What does o L mean on the Cabrio 6th sense by whirlpool and how doe i fix?


The OL error code indicates that the washer is overloaded. If the washer is not overloaded, this would indicate either a drag on the drive system or the control board is failing. Be sure nothing is on the floor under the washer that could be causing a problem. Raise the lid & manually spin the basket, it should spin freely. If not, you may have an item stuck between the spin basket and the washer tub. The image below shows how to remove the spin basket. If you unplug the washer and follow that procedure, you may find the cause of your problem. I recommend scheduling for a technician to come out to diagnose and repair your washer.

Tilt the unit back & shine a flash light through the clear inner basket & see if there is any clothing stuck in between the inner basket & outer basket. Open the lid & lift up on the inner basket It should move up & down.

Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SW0. I need to replace the lid but ...


do you see about 2-4 inches down a crease that runs all the way around the top?
there are 2 clips in the front you need to push in with a putty knife and lift the whole top up.
if you where to look at the very left corner and go about 5-6 inches in you will find the clips.
can be a pain.
make sure when you do lift the whole top that you hold the lid or it will crash into something.
let me know if this helps

I have coins under the basket of my kenmore elite oasis he model 2806 how do remove the basket?


See the following Whirlpool Service Manual for their Cabrio washer. The Sears / Kenmore Oasis is basically the same machine so the procedures for pulling the basket should be the same.
