Possible that the switch is defective, there is fault in the line to the control unit from the switch of the control unit is faulty.
check these one by one.

SOURCE: where is the reset button on Cabrio dryer

there is no reset, unplug the unit for 5 minutes, if it still won't start you have a CCU problem, that is the central control board.

SOURCE: door locked, won't turn on. won't reset

Remove the bottom panel which would give you access to the pump area if you look up along the side that the door lock is on you will see a cord with a loop on it pull this cord and the door would open. The panel must be removed in order to locate this pull cord. If you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick
p.s if after you open the door and you were to leave the unit unplugged for 7 minutes if the error did not go away or if the door once again locked up you would have no choice but to replace the door lock assembly on the unit Thanks again Rick

SOURCE: Will start the wash cycle and DL come on and light

Hi,

"dl"indicates a door lock error. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
Check for the following when dl occurs:

  • Door Lock Mechanism broken.

  • Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects

  • Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)

  • Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure


Thank you !!

Whirlpool cabrio washer, I try to start a load by pushing the start button, the lid lock clicks shut like normal but then the light starts blinking and the washer wont run.


If it's the lid locking light that's flashing, then the Lid Latch assembly needs to be replaced. It's latching, but the switch inside it isn't working and doesn't recognize that it's latched.
They have the part and a video on how to fix it at this parts company.

I have a Whirlpool Cbrio top load washer. it won't start it's cycle. Once it senses the load, the lock lid light flashes and it does nothing. can this be fixed?


I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.

Washer will not start. Start button flashes but lid is not locked


If the lid lock light is flashing, that is an error. If the lid doesnt lock it won't do anything. There is a diagnostic test that you could do to prove it if you are good with electronics and ohm meters. Most tecks would probably tell you to replace the lid lock assembly. That is probably the cheapest part. The only problem is that without the diagnostis test it could be somthing else. But first check to see that the wire that comes from the lock is securely plugged into the control board.
