Question about Whirlpool WTW6400SW Cabrio Washer

1 Answer

Cabrio washer won't fill normally but diagnostic shows valves are fine

When washing, the washer dribbles the water in very slowly, and complains about slow fills. I've disconnected the water supply lines and checked the screens for blockage, and I've also run the diagnostic where it tests only the hot and cold water valves (hold button for 3 secs, release for 3, etc. and switch to "Whites"). In the diagnostic mode, the water pours in like it should. But whenever I try to do an ordinary wash cycle, it goes back to dribbling the water in, and making a humming noise. I've checked the drain hose to ensure the water isn't just running out. I've tried unplugging the machine and plugging it back in, also. Any ideas? Since the valves work just fine in diagnostic mode, replacing the valves seems like a waste of money. And since it works fine in diagnostic mode, it seems replacing the control logic board isn't going to help either.

Littleone.. please check your instructions.. some washers now dont need Hot water connection to them...they heat their own as part of the efficiency settings on the wash programmes themselves!

This means it is stuck between the spin and rinse cycle and the time piece in the housing unit might need replaced if the knob itself isnt stripped also make sure it is on small or large load..

What would cause a GE Harmony washer to fill too slowly? The water in cold water wash cycle literally just dribbles into the tub.


The filler hose has a wire mesh filter in it to keep the inlet water from passing particles that would keep the solenoid valve from closing completely. Shut off the water and take the hose off from both the faucet and the washer. clean the screen and check the one in the washer too.

Water for intial fill works fine . when it goes to rinse cycle the water just dribbles in making wash time go on for ever ! whats the solution?


when you start the washer set it just on cold and see if it fills slowly,when the washer goes to rinse it just uses cold water,you could have a problem with the washer or in the house,when you run it on just cold and if it dribbles in,stop it shut down the water going to the washer,remove the cold water hose from the back of the washer,stick it in the sink or inside the washer and turn it on,if it comes out strong then you have a bad water valve on the washer,if it comes out slowly you have a bad water valve in the house and it's not the washer.hope this helps

No fault code washer will not fill


Hi

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Washer fills extremely slow. Hoses are fine water


Hi, check to see if there's good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine. If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve.

Whirlpool cabrio washer starts to fill and then quits almost immediately and then the LF code comes on. I have run the automatic diagnostic test and the water inlet valve seems to work fine. During test...


Try cleaning your inlet valve filters. Turn off your water supply and remove the hoses from the washer. The filter screens are located just inside of the valves. Just twist them out, clean, and reinstall.

Good luck.

My cabrio gave me an "LF" code. It dribbles a little water, and then no more, so of course there's no more washing with it.


LF = long fill. Turn off the water to the unit from the wall. Disconnect hoses. Make sure water is able to come out of the hoses. At the back of the machine check to see if the screens are clogged (on the water valve). You can remove the little screens and clean them off with water and try blowing through them to get rid of the residue. Make sure you put the screens back into the valve after cleaning them. If that doesn't work most likely you need a water valve assembly.

Kenmore washer. At rinse cycle only, water fills very slowly.


For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Washer Is Dribbling Water Into Tub


you have a bad inlet waer valve stuck in open position, youll need to replace the valve. easy enough to do, its the valve your hoses are screwed into, in the mean time until repair is made, you can simply turn offf water supply between loads ( not a bad thing to do anyway)
