"2007 Whirlpool Cabrio HE top loader with glass lid" sat for 3 months, now it does everything except agitate, and flashes


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.

Here is the document to help you.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care will not stop spinning


I work on these every day for the past 8 years and have never once seen this problem. If i had to guess i would assume its a stuck contact on the timer. The timer is the only thing that sends power down to the motor but its an expensive guess.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Whirlpool direct drive top loader will not spin


Hi, Is the humming noise coming from the timer area? Do you know if it agitates ok?
When you have it in spin cycle, Try lifting the lid and see if the hum stops.
The reason for these questions is that on this model, if it drains the water out but does not spin, it is either lid switch, coupler, or transmission.
If it's the coupler, it will not agitate either.
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

Thanks

Shuts off in between rinse and spin cycle


check the lid switch. if it's loose, worn or broken washer won't drain/spin. try pushing down on the lid when it's stopped. switch is either on the right side visible with a small hole that a plastic activator on the lid itself or on some activated by the left hand rear hinge under the top and need the hinge tightened only..

Dryer starts to run on its own


Some dryers have a touch up cycle that runs automatically to keep clothes from wrinkling if they are left in the dryer.
Some touch up cycles are selectable. Some are automatic.
