We investigate the properties of dibaryons containing u and d quarks in the constituent quark model. In constructing the ground state wave function, we choose the spatial part to be fully symmetric and the remaining color, isospin, and spin part to be antisymmetric so as to satisfy the Pauli principle. By adapting the isospin spin (IS) coupling scheme that combines the isospin basis function with the spin basis function, and subsequently coupling this to the color singlet basis function, we construct the color isospin spin states compatible with the physical states of the dibaryon. By using the variational method, we then calculate the mass of the dibaryon in a nonrelativistic potential model, involving Coulomb, color confinement, and color-spin hyperfine interaction. In particular, to assess the stability for different types of the confinement potential, we introduce one that is linearly proportional to the interquark distance and another to its square root. For all cases considered, we find that there are no compact bound states against the strong decay.
