SOURCE: Out of balance top load washer

This was my fix, my machine that would error out with DC/UC codes.  

I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors in the spin cycle, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove the clutch pulley. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I believe I saw a posting where someone did. I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach angle, it is a tight work area. I did not want to junk 4 yr old $1k machine with out trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, good luck!

I found a link on this site

Whirlpool W10140920 agitates with no water in the tub


I've had the same problem..3 times in 2 years.
EVERY time I needed to relpace the switch sensor (behind the water temp knob.) It fixes the problem, but continues to happen. I am going to get a new NON Whirlpool washer today.

Out of balance switch will not stop washer when load becomes out of balance.


Your switch is bad. You don't necessarily need the switch. Snip the wires off either side of the switch and fuse them together with a wire connector.

My washer stops during cycle ...has to open and shut lid several times to get back to washing...why


You need to replace the "Lid Switch" on the machine. Over time, the contacts in the switch become worn or dirt and lint gets in it and becomes faulty.

My washine machine has turned it self off and wont come back on.if you move the drum about it comes on then goes off


Make sure the load is balanced properly in the tub. Most washers have a safety switch somewhere on the tub. If the tub rocks too much it shuts off until the door is opened and it resets.

Off balance


Check the owner's manual for the reset switch. You can always Google your unit for support, too.

Off Balance. From the service manual (you can google error codes for these machines), if the motor controller detects an unrecoverable off-balance condition, the machine controller will shut down and display an "ob" for off balance. The lid switch must be opened at least once before restarting the cycle, if this condition occurs. Opening the lid will allow you to view and redistribute the load. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

My Washer will work at all. It acts dead


a small run of these actually had an out of balance switch and fuse assembly that cut power to the machine if it went way out of balance ,check and see if yours has one and replace the fuse at first but you may have to replace the entire assembly

Intuitive washer fault code 43 coming up


I had same problem and followed starcee's advice on howtomendit.com

I unscrewed top cover, then unscrewed and lifted up the grey computer cover. The balance switch is underneath on the right with a yellow and white wire coming off.

I removed switch from clip and then removed the wires/clips from contacts. There was definitely corrosion on the contacts. I soaked switch overnight in vinegar. Then rinsed with water. Then dried switch out for day.

Put it all back together and am now on second load of washing.

Washer goes into unbalance mode


Check the springs and spring mounts,(might be broken or not on right), also could be something wrong with the balance switch (where the tub hits the switch).It could be mis aligned or defective. Check the springs first.
