If the load is unbalanced, the Cabrio washer will display this code while running an imbalanced load correction routine at the end of the wash cycle and before the ﬁnal spin. If the code remains and the wash cycle dial is ﬂashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press START.
If the washer is actually going out of balance on a regular basis and the load is similar weighted items at least half full. Then you likely need to replace the suspension spring rod kit. The New Cabrio Suspension Repair Kit comes with all 4 shocks and are common to need replacement. The new Cabrio washer suspension repair kits seem to work better and last longer than earlier versions.
Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to ﬁll and begin a wash cycle. If the washer is overloaded, it will drain any water and detergent that was added during the ﬁll. To correct the overload, remove several items and add detergent. Close lid and press START.
That's how it should be perfect world where washing machines are constructed with quality materials. However, in this wasteful world of poor quality the inner tub may be jammed in the down position, unable to float off the drive hub because of a rusted drive shaft! (Removing the inner tub to clean and lubricate the shaft may help.) Or hopefully there is just a sock or something lodged in between the inner and outer baskets causing the same result.
Did you use regular detergent?
Regular detergents are not recommended for Cabrio washers. Use only High Efficiency ("HE") detergent.
Did you add too much detergent?
Always measure detergent and follow detergent directions. If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds correction routine at the end of the wash cycle. The suds reduction routine removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. If the code remains and the wash cycle dial is ﬂashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your desired cycle using cold water. Press START. Do not add detergent.
Is the Cabrio's lid open?
Close the lid to clear the display. If the lid remains open for more than 10 minutes, water in the washtub should drain out.
Po flashes when the lid of the Cabrio washing machine has been left open for more than 10 minutes. Close the lid to stop the drain pump.
This code will appear at the end of the wash cycle to indicate that the hot and cold-water inlet hoses are reversed. If that is not the case you may need to check the washer's temperature sensor (in the Cabrio washer's water valve. Or there may be a problem with the Cabrio's main control board.
Indicates the Cabrio's lid cannot lock.
Check for items caught in the lid keeping it from closing completely.
Is soap, fabric softener, or anything else keeping the lock from extending into the lid?
The control detects an open lid switch, or cannot determine if the lid is locked. Test the lid lock connection to the washer's control board and lid lock resistance levels.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
