    Have you replaced the bearings in the Cabrio WTW7600XW2? If so, how long
    will the machine last after that? Had for 4 years and bearings have gone
    out. Need to know if it’s worth fixing.

    Are these machines built by fisher and paykel or did whirlpool just copy
    them?

    This video saved me so much money! The previous owner of my cabrio wasn’t
    using HE detergent, and it corroded the tub shaft, making it so that the
    basket didn’t ride up and down on it freely, thus creating a false overload
    error. I just pulled the basket out and sanded the shaft down with some
    fine wet dry paper, and it works just fine now!

    these machines are junk not worth repairing.

    I realize this is late but someone else may benefit. Most parts places ie
    Sears will only show the outer basket assembly as the replacement. You can
    buy the bearings parts # W10435302. You will need the bearing tool to seat
    the bearings properly. The part number is W10447783. Enter these numbers in
    Google and you should find a supplier to serve you. Consider your time…
    the basket may be a better option if you have never done this type of work
    before.

    Glad you found it helpful.

    after replacing the shaft and bearings the washing machine when it goes
    from washing or spin to discharge chirps. does not seem to impede the
    machine in any way but still the chirp is there. sounds like it is coming
    from the bottom of the machine

    @BriMarteen Sorry no.

    This video is great, thanks!! Got a question, the door/lid plastic lock is
    broken on mine. How/where could I order a new plastic lock? Is it easy to
    install?

    Thanks for the elaborate video. I always wanted to tear this down myself.
    You have simplified the process. Kudos.

  19. Bri Marteen says:

    so if my bearings on the outer tub are going bad can i replace just the
    bearings or do i need to purchase and replace the entire outer tub. The
    parts list doesn’t separate the bearings from tub so you have to order the
    tub to get the bearings . I would prefer to just pull the bearings and find
    replacements on my own, is that possible?

    Had to add one thing, the video would have been nicer in High Def, at 720
    would great. Again that’s for the video.

    This is the most complete Cabrio Video I’ve been able to find. Complete
    tear down, Outstanding. I could hear change rattling around during the
    drain mode, so I removed the basket, and remove the filter, (which is
    nothing more than a cover). I found 4 coins, and one penny was down the
    larger hole. I removed it, reassembled the machine, and did another load of
    cloths. Still have the what sounds like more coins, somewhere. I have to
    check the pumps next. That’s a bit more work. Thanks

    I have a Cabrio from 2007 and everytime I wash, the spin cycle always goes
    crazy, the basket starts spinning and pounding back and forth as if it’s
    going to burst open and then I get a code that shows JL. I’m always going
    in and moving the wet clothes around and I basically have to be standing
    around the washer to make sure it doesn’t keep doing these, but it still
    continues to do this. What can I do to stop this. It;s taking me forever to
    wash clothes. Please let me know. Thank you
