What causes the inner tub not to float for the agitator to kick in. The basket is stuck on the shaft, and I know it suppose to come of easy but it doesn't. It gives an ol code do they see a new shaft.
Answer Hello Albert,
The most likely cause of the inner tub not lifting and getting the OL code is due to at some point the unit has been overloaded and the drive hub is most likely damaged. To take out the basket as long as you have the agitator out and any screws that hold the tub in place out then you would just lift it out. You will want to look at the drive hub once the tub is out and check for damage to the hub and replace hub 280145.
What is the capacity of this tub, what size is it?
Answer Richard, model WTW6600SW1 has a listed capacity of 4.6 cu. ft. Thanks!
How do I know when is time to replace the basket on a cabrio model wtw6600sg1?
Answer Hello Leo. You should have no need to replace the basket W10296143 unless it is broken or bad. Most likely the outer tub will fail and start to make a loud roar before the basket fails.
THE WASHER HAS A REALLY LOUD ROAR WHEN IT IS IN THE SPIN CYCLE..iT IS ALSO LOUD WASHING..IT WAS VERY QUIET WHEN NEW
Answer Hello Steve. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the outer tub assembly W10193887 will need to be replaced due to bad bearings. They are made into the tub assembly.
Are both plastic chambers filled with fluid? I took mine off and only the top chamber was filled. Machine is out of balance. Thanks. I've already tried everything else posted on the internet for Cabrio's balance.
Answer Hello Joe,
Only the top ring holds water. The lower ring is air.
Have you tried removing the grease from the tub supports? The manufacturer greased them from the factory and said after the fact that the grease needs to be removed as it causes too much movement of the tub assembly during spin and it's amplified by larger loads. They also have a kit that replaces the suspension system and has plastic cups that the support rod ends set in W10189077. This kit should not be lubricated at all even if the instructions with it says to lubricate the cups. All grease should be removed with rubbing alcohol to prevent leaving a residue.
What holds the tub from dropping?
Answer Hello Dave. The inner basket moves up and down on the hub assembly 280145. Hope this helps.
