Washer Diagnostic Modes and Tests

Cabrio uL Error Unbalanced Load

Whirlpool Cabrio Washing Machine Suspension

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. Not all Cabrio Suspension kits are exactly the same, so be sure to check the part with your cabrio’s model number before ordering!

Cabrio oL Error Over Loaded (Stored error Code F70)

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.

Cabrio Washer Diagnostic Modes and Tests

Cabrio Sd Error Suds Detected (Stored Error Code F71)

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.

Cabrio lid Error Lid Opened (Stored Error Code F81)

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.

Cabrio Po Error Pump Out (Lid Opened)

Press PAUSE/ CANCEL once to clear the code.

Cabrio F1 Fault Primary Control Failure (Stored Fault Code F60-F68)

The Cabrio’s F1 fault flashes when there is a primary control failure. This is a general code saying something within the control has gone wrong.

See Cabrio Washer Motor diagnostic Tests

Cabrio F51 Fault (Stored Fault Code F51)

The Cabrio’s F51 fault code flashes on the washing machine’s display when there is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) failure.

See Cabrio Washer Motor diagnostic Tests

Cabrio F53 Fault (Stored Fault Code F53)

The Cabrio’s F53 fault code flashes on the washing machine’s display when the washing machine control detects a high temperature at the motor.

Cabrio F54 Fault (Stored Fault Code F54)

The Cabrio’s F72 fault code flashes on the washing machine’s display when the basket check routine fails to determine if the basket has re-engaged the basket hub after being disengaged.

Is the basket floating? If yes, pump out water. See Long Drain.

If not, determine the cause of friction. It is fairly common for a small wash item like a sock to get stuck under the Cabrio’s inner wash tub and keep it from reengaging the washers drive hub. The Cabrio washer’s inner tub should slide easily up and down on the drive shaft. It is also common for this shaft to rust and cause drag. Removing the inner drum for a good shaft cleaning often will fix the washer with no replacement parts.
