Whirlpool WTW6500W Washer - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

This is a tough one as so many things can trigger the OL overload first I would raise the top panel check the 4 suspension rods one each corner make not bent that the spring still attached at bottom also up top where rods hook into plastic cup that there is no rust so the plastic inserts can move freely if all is good remove basket from tub making sure nothing in between pretty common with the machine empty grab the basket and see if you can raise it about an inch and it falls back into place it should this is the hub that engages, a cracked basket ring that has lost its fluids with do this very rare with an empty machine spin the basket you should her what sounds like water sloshing around this is the fluid in the basket ring have seen them loose normally you get a clicking sound now the tech sheet does not offer any help with unbalanced load or over load but to say redistribute load there are no sensors on the machine to create these codes the control senses drag on the motor which causes this to flash after checking everything I mentioned the factory would recommend changing the RPS sensor first from there the rotor and stator then the control usually when these parts are suspect you would get an F47 error code sorry I cant pinpoint the problem but usually these codes appear in the spin cycle not wash.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'dl' stands for Door Lock, meaning that either the lock mechanism itself is malfunctioning or the door lock sensor is.
I don't know if there is any lock adjustment which can be made on your particular machine or whether replacement of the offending item is the order of the day ;-0(
Whichever, it means a service engineer call. Sorry.

There are a number of possibilities here;

you are in a hard water area and that is deposited calcium. Use Calgon or some type of water softener.

You are using washing powder instead of HE (high efficiency) liquid.

You are using a cold wash with powder when you need to use warm water.

The washing machine needs descaling. The white is calcium from the heater element and tank.

There should be an open end at the back of the washer, where the house initially was fixed.

If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, or the heating element circuit has failed, the F05 error code will be displayed. Might need to be taken to a repairman

The model number is probably WFW6620HC0. The "LOC" may mean that you have set the control lock by pressing and holding the extra rinse button on the control panel for three+ seconds. Try holding the button again. If that doesn't work, look on the control panel for the Control Lock label. It will be in a small font below a button or in the middle a line between two buttons that you need to press and hold simultaneously for 3+ seconds. (Note: if you press and hold for too long, the lock will toggle off and back on. A skeleton key symbol may also be displayed on the LCD panel when this lock is enabled.)

The manual for the WFW6620HC0 is available from Whirlpool on their support site: https://www.whirlpool.com/services/manuals.html . The current link to the manual is https://www.whirlpool.com/content/dam/global/documents/201809/use-and-care-w11156985-revA.pdf .

I hope this helps. The control lock feature is useful when you are cleaning the surface of the washer and to keep small children from starting a wash cycle with a pet or sibling in the machine.

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.
Check for good contact at the control Board and at the RPS. Sometimes disconnecting and reconnecting the RPS plug connection several times will clean off corrosion that may be affecting the contacts.

Here is an earlier Fixya answer addressing the query:

This is an error on the motor. Check the motor brushes, they could be worn out.

The manual is here. I searched for the specifications and none are available for that machine. A Whirlpool Front loader or Top Loader will be comparable at around 3.0 to 3.2 cubic feet.
