We investigate the symmetry property and construct the wave function of the dibaryon states containing two strange quarks with S=0 in both the flavor SU(3) symmetric and breaking cases. We discuss how the color - isospin - spin states of dibaryon in the symmetry broken case of flavor SU(3) can be extracted from the fully antisymmetric states in flavor SU(3). The stability of the dibaryon against the strong decay into two baryons is then discussed, by using the variational method within a constituent quark model with confining and color-spin interactions. To compare our results with those from lattice QCD in the flavor SU(3) limit, we search for the stable H-dibaryon in a wide range of π meson masses. We find that with the given potential, there is no compact six-quark dibaryon state in the SU(3) flavor symmetry broken case with realistic quark masses as well as in the flavor SU(3) symmetric case in a wide range of quark masses.
