Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

Whirlpool cabrio f51

After 18 months of average use my washing machine has been given its last rights. After Whirlpool agree to place the Control Unit , Rotor Assembly and some other part it still does not work. I am no longer getting the F51 Code but it agitates when it should spin and vice versa. The repairmen after working on it for 4 hours has given up and claims it is not repairable.Whirlpool basically is saying nothing at this point. If I said I was discusted by the whole thing it would be a unstatement. I am very handy and if I could get hold of a service manual I would fix it myself.

    My Whirlpool Cabrio HE is giving the F 51 code, only during the towels/Sheets setting. Is this the only mode that has the motor/sensor problem, or will it develop in the other modes as well?

    I am having the f51 issue with my 1 1/2 yr old cabrio. Unacceptable for $960 washer! I am awaiting a reply from Whirlpool assuming they will fix this el gratis. FYI the cust service rep claimed this was NOT a common issue with this washer. I have to disagree after reading this blog! And now I'm afraid it'll never be fixed/always be a lemon of sorts. I'll post when I receive a reply from Whrlpool. I will not accept that this is just an issue with this model and my $900+ is for naught!

    The machine will not agitate and skips washing the load. After it fills with water and should start agitating, it begins a drain and spin cycle. This cycle is usually interrupted by an OL error. The OL error can be resolved by taking out items or rearranging the load. Bottom line is that the agitating wash cycle is getting skipped, essentially just only rinsing the clothes.

F51 lead to the "rps sensor" the repairman just fixed it for me.... but now after 2 loads, the water quit going into drum where it is suppose to.

I am getting a F1 code in my washer which causes it to stop several times during a wash cycle, what do I need to do?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

If you own a Whirlpool Cabrio and are experiencing an F1 error, you're unable to finish or start a load of clothes. When the Whirlpool Cabrio displays an F1 error, this means the the control board is having difficulty communicating with the motor.

To fix your F1 error, you can first try to unplug your washing machine for 15 minutes and then plug it back in. If this doesn't work, you will need to replace the control board. The only tools that you need to replace the control board is a Phillips screw driver and a 1/4" hex head driver. Be sure to unplug the machine from the electrical outlet before performing any repairs.
After unplugging your Whirlpool Cabrio washer, carefully pull the washer away from the wall (Watch your drain hose and the two inlet hoses.) Next unscrew the 3 screws located on the back of the Whirlpool Cabrio. Next, take a picture or make note of where each plug connects to the control board. Next, unplug each plug and the pressure tube. Lastly, unscrew the 1/4 screw then remove control board. Replace with new control board and reverse your steps to install. The new board will fix the Whirlpool Cabrio F1 error.

What dose a FL code mean on whirlpool cabrio platinum


I will try and help for some reason Whirlpool likes to flip letters around which differ from the service manual FL would be an LF long fill or is it a F1 the model doesn't show in the Whirlpool data base nor parts suppliers I suspect wtw6600sb1 does the machine from initial start fill correctly then wash if so we can eliminate the pressure switch and hose after wash cycle unit should drain then fill with rinse water if the inlet valve does not let water into the machine to satisfy the pressure switch the control times out and flashes a long fill code this unit has a log valve system possible you have a bad inlet valve on the bank of valve or a bad control not outputing voltage to the valve, hope this points you in the right direction

While machine is runing suddly machine stops and indicates F1 PLEASE GIVE RIGHT SOLUTION TO RESOLVE THE PROBLEMS.


F1 error in your whirlpool cabrio indicates bad control and should be replaced to resolve the error code. However, you can contact Whirlpool as well prior to replacing the control yourself as I have seen whirlpool paying for the parts themselves just because this is known to be a common issue. Good luck

When the water runs inside the washer always show the F1 and the machine stop.


Hi,

The "F1" error code on the Whirlpool cabrio is quite common, and generally has to do with the control board. Replacing the control panel may resolve this issue. However, I believe Whirlpool is aware of the F1 issue with the Cabrio, and is fixing some machines for free. Please call 1-800-253-1301 for more details and see if you are eligible for a free repair.

Washer does not spin


I had the same problem in october- my had a bad wiring harness, some board problem, and a bad sensor. if it hadn't been under warranty the cost of parts alone would have been over 1000bucks.
