Whirlpool Cabrio
« on: February 06, 2013, 10:28:20 AM »
OK guys, I have a Whirlpool Cabrio washer that will start, make one spin and then stop and the lock will release. No codes appear.
Have any of you ever seen this before? How do I get the unit into diagnostic mode to see if there are stored codes?




Regards,
Richard

This unit is a true cabrio, unlike the vmw with same name. Tech sheet located under lid at front of washer. Put unit in diagnostic mode and check fault codes. I replace a lot of control boards, but not before verifying faulty. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Main-Control-Board/W10189966/1469076

Check the connections & harness between the control board and 'motor.'  Loose harness connections at the motor/rotor thingy always cause these things problems.  If it can't verify that the motor is running (position), it'll choke.  I don't know why it won't give an error though...
