I have a Whirlpool Cabrio model WTW6300SWO. The machine stopped

This answer was rated:

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio model WTW6300SWO. The machine stopped working mid-cycle and now will only run a small amount of water in, will only turn the tub a partial turn in either direction, will not drain, and the control panle just beeps and flashes. There is no code being displayed. I tried unplugging the machine for several minutes but that did not help. The machine is 10 years old - is it toast?

What is flashing on the display?




Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The display only flashes the minutes remaining in the cycle.

do you know how to put it into diagnostics?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No, I don't know how to do that, and I am at work. Perhaps you can offer possible trouble-shooting tips that I can try at home before purchasing a new machine. Once before there was an issue with clogging - tech said it was due to using too much "he" detergent - perhaps this could be a similar issue - there is a foul odor in the machine - like it's not draining fully.

Here is how to get it into diagnostics, it should show you an error code that will tell us what the problem is..


You can then download the tech sheet below and see what the code means...
