If your Whirlpool washing machine is not working correctly, resetting it can often be enough to get it back in running order. The best way to know how to reset your particular Whirlpool washing machine is to check the owner’s manual. You can also read on to learn the basic ways to reset Whirlpool washing machines.
Steps to Reset a Whirlpool Washing Machine
The following steps should be used to reset your Whirlpool washing machine:
- Turn off the washer.
- Turn the mode dial to NORMAL.
- Turn the dial counter-clockwise one click left, clockwise three clicks, counterclockwise one click, and then clockwise one click.
How to Confirm You Have Reset Your Whirlpool Washing Machine
Once you have taken the above steps, press the START button. Are all the cycle indicating lights illuminated? If they are, press START / STOP one time. Rotate your dial until you have the following three lights illuminated: RINSE, WASH, and STOP. Then turn off your washer and unplug it for ten seconds. When you turn it back on it should be reset.
You can run a test load without any clothing to ensure that the reset worked. If it did not then you can try to follow the above procedure one more time. If that does not work either, go on to the next step to try the Cabrio reset procedure.
Try the Cabrio Reset Procedure
If your washer is still not working correctly, you can try the Cabrio reset procedure. Touch any button that you see on your display pad. This will clear the error code. Or you can press PAUSE/CANCEL. Choose a cycle and press START.
Then disconnect the Cabrio from power if you see the issue or error come back. Wait five minutes. Choose a cycle again and press START. Run the load empty to test it and ensure that the reset process worked correctly. If it did not, then you can complete these steps again.
