Question about Whirlpool Cabrio Washing Machines
I have a Whirlpool Cabrio Washer and it becomes unbalanced on every load during spin cycle no matter the size (even one item) or type. I've tried shifting everything around, even just running the last 10 minutes on "Drain & Spin" on low speed to try to resolve with no luck. I've read online a service pointer that says the circuit board may have to be replaced, but I've also read that the suspension springs might need to be replaced. I took it apart based on other input I've read and looked at the suspension springs which show no sign of any problem. I even took them to the local Sears parts outlet to see if he thought they could be the problem. He couldn't really help. Please help. This is driving me crazy and I can't afford a new washer.

i also had the same problem, and it ended up being the coupler. It was not hard to replace, it cost me about 19.00. I didn't follow full recomende instructions. I tipped the washer backwards. Removed the drain pump and the motor itself. Then I removed the old coupling and placed the new one. The washer is working like new...

it has a bad balance ring on the top of the basket no so hard but not that easy either
you have to remove the case to get to the balance ring
go to www.sears.com and go to parts and put in the full model number, under the parts tab in appliances and select view brakedown and it will explain it better with you seeing it

The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.
LG themselves have some information on this error code..

SOURCE: I have the HE2 model
This is likely an electronic glitch as no problem is detected during the diagnostic. Unplug the machine for at least 30 minutes to forcibly reset the control. The longer the machine is unplugged, the better. If the machine still behaves the same after this, the problem is likely the motor control unit (MCU) located at the base of the machine. It has been found that a malfunctioning MCU can lead to an erratic operation of the central control unit (CCU) and it may give codes or signals that cannot be found in any troubleshooting literature. The MCU is probably sending false signals to the CCU that is triggering a premature completion of the cycle. There's nothing we can do about this problem as of the moment if the problem is not rectified by unplugging the machine. Brace yourself for a total breakdown of the MCU in the near future.
