Is it emptying the water quickly enough? A blockage, or partial blockage on drain will prevent the spin starting quickly, and you only have a limited time on spin before the program stops.
Carefully remove and clean any filters if fitted on the drain - you must do this and don't assume they are clear. If ok, check the connections at the waste hose on the sink or plumbing, and in the waste hosepipe. Can you hear the drain pump running on the drain only cycle? a glug glug glug noise.... if you cant hear the pump it may be seized or jammed with a coin or button or pin or bra wire or zip etc etc.
If no waste water is flowing, try lowering the waste pipe on to the floor completely flat - water should flow out under gravity. If it doesn't, there may be a blockage in the machine sump hose - a sock or pants, etc.
Check all the basics first - water fill, water drain, filter clear, drain water flowing etc.... if all ok, may be motor or control card.

You do not explain what is stuck. Door? Lid? Filter? Drum? ??

normally when one fault is generated after fixing another fault, it is normally down to something caused by the person working on it, this could sound like you have dismantled something on the suspension, you say you changed the pump, (did you tip it upside down to work on it) if you tipped it up to work on it check the suspension legs to make sure they look equal, as the chrome inner drum can not possibly be that far out of alignment, the whole drum unit can be though, thats a different matter, check suspension and get back to me,if i have helped rate me please

Transmission oil leak. Replace transmission. Probably cheaper to just replace machine.

f8 is shown when the heater circuit is on with no water in.. it doesnt do it when you unplug the pressure switch because your disabling the heat protect circuit


F08 indicates pressure switch stuck on full.

Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.

Take the top off the machine.

Locate the pressure switch, you can identify it by the thin tube attached to it.

Take the tube off, blow down this tube as hard as you can to shift any blockage or restriction in the pressure chamber. Give the pressure switch a couple of good taps with the screwdriver handle.

Refit the tube and try the machine again.

If still doing it, unplug again and follow the tube down.

This end will be attached to the pressure chamber.

Take this chamber off and thoroughly clean it out, clean out the port into the tub too.

Reassemble and try again.

If after this it's still faulty you'll need to start replacing parts.

I'd suggest trying a new pressure switch first.

Failing this, if all of the above fails to resolve the problem you're possibly looking at a faulty main control board.

The Cabrio Washer F2 error happens when the main control detects a stuck key on the user interface. The steps to take to try and fix the F2 code problem are below:

Unplug the washer for five minutes and then plug it back in, this will reset the control board.
If the persists then the only way to fix it is to replace the user interface board.

Most likely it is the spin tube bearing worn. Reguires some know how and special tools. Requires a major dismantle of the machine and usally I did these repairs in the shop. Bearing will eventually sieze over use and time. Labor will probably exceed the value of the machine.
