Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Every time I start the machine I get the UL signal. At first I checked for an unbalanced load but now I don't even bother. I just keep hitting the pause button and then the start again. After 3-4 tries (it depends on the cycle I have selected) it starts and goes through the appropriate cycle until 21 to 23 minutes are left (depends on the cycle once again) then stops and beeps F1. I have to go down to the basement to restart the machine, which then finishes its cycle. This machine is a real pain. We've had it for little over 1 year and it was very expensive.

Hello,


Welcome to FixYa.


Based on your description I'd first suggest you look up your warranty coverage in the owners manual to see what degree of warranty the control is covered. I say that because according to Whirlpool, this is the definition of the "F1" error code:


Primary Control Failure

"F then 1 flashes when there is a primary control failure. Replace the machine control assembly.
See Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies."

As for the "UL" that may in fact be a side effect of a faulty control since you are getting the F1 we know the control isn't quite right, so as a result I wouldn't put alot of stock in the other error codes but the F1.

Let me know if I can help move you forward in an many and I''ll certainly do what I can. You may also want to look into recalls on those control boards as well as many of them where recalled in the last year or two...you'll need to phone the manufacturer and present the model and serial number of your machine.

Thank you for choosing FixYa todasy sand good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I have a whirlpool cabrio platinum and it will not spin the cloths out. it keep flashing ul no matter what i try to do?


Hello!

UL message means unbalanced load. Turn off washing machine, wait for door to open and remove half of the clothes. Then try again do make a spin. If it's still displays UL error shoul mean a loosen drive belt or worn carbon brushes on the washingh machine

Whirlpool cabrio top load washer ul on final spin


It senses that the lid is unlocked, even if it isn't. Could be a defective interlock.

UL bravo error code


Unbalanced load? Don't over stuff the washer. The load sensing moves the drum back and forth at the start. If it can't balance the load it will err.

Wtw6600 washer has UL code and has trouble agitating and spinning.


The UL code means Unbalanced Load. Open the lid and move your clothes around so they are distributed evenly. Your spin cycle will then work normally.

When washing comforter the ul keeps coming no matter what is dine to level the load?


UL = Unbalanced LoadUL 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.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis washer unbalanced signal seems to be very sensitive. Only after several tries of readjusting the load to get it really even that the washer will spin without stopping. I made sure...


If the washer throws an UL error code with out any clothes in the washer then the issue must be concerned with the mechanical alignment inside the machine or a bad CCU.

The most common problem which can cause this is some sort of mechanical hinderance which does not allow the basket to move freely.

The suspension system which holds the basket in its place might be faulty and causing the unbalancing. In this model i think there are plastic ring at the bottom of the basket . Even if they are worn out or moved out of position it may cause the UL error code you are facing

Noisy when trying to spin. display uL instead of time remaining. Stopped, opened lid and redistributed load. Started up again. cycle continued but still displaying uL. Not sure if load still unbalanced?...


REPLACE YOUR SUSPENSION RODS. You can get them at a discount applicance parts store online for about $60. Our washer is about 8 years old and has been getting unbalanced on every load. I replaced the suspension rods tonight and and it solved the problem.
