First plug off the wall. Open the machine from behind to examine if any shock-absorbers(known as dampers) or springs have come off or broken. Your dealer could help with spares. But you could do the job yourself.

SOURCE: washer unbalanced on final spin, cannot stop the unbalance

Hi Sparky,
The reason it's out of balance is because the skate plate shoes are worn out and need to be replaced. You'll have to access the washer in order to do this. There's a video available that shows how to do it.

After you have opened up the washer you'll see that the tub is sitting on a three legged pedestal. The shoes are in between the skate plate and the top of the pedestal. Here's a picture (and part number) to illustrate...

bc62875.jpg

Do one shoe at a time by lifting the skate plate off of the pedestal about an inch or so and wedging it there (I use a hammer handle as a wedge). The shoes simply snap into place, so the old ones will have to be snapped out of place first. Use another hammer and tap the shoes out of their sockets from underneath.

NOTE! ---> When you place the new shoe into its' place DO NOT try to snap it in!!! (if you do, you'll break it) Just let it rest in it's place for now. Remove your wedge and allow the full weight of the tub to sit on it. Then move on to the next shoe and repeat.

After all 3 shoes have been replaced it's time to snap them in completely. Do this from the top of the tub. Using your body weight, press down on the tub from above on all three corners (where the shoes are located). This will apply even pressure to the top of the shoe and keep it from breaking. You should have all 3 snapped in now. Use a flashlight and look underneath to verify (you should see the tabs of the shoes poking all the way through the pedestal).

Now all that's left is to rebuild the washer cabinet and start some laundry!

SG

p.s. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but this job can be done easily within an hour and the parts only cost ~$12.00!

No reset. Carbon brushes are worrn out. Consider changing the bearings while you have the motor apart. Se http://www.nettoparts.co.uk/shop/frontpage.html for spares.

UE Error Code


The UE error code (Unbalanced Error) displays when you wash items that cause the machine to shake badly during the spin cycle, if possible wash and drain the items only, then open the door and stack the items evenly on both sides of the drum in order to balance it, now select the spin cycle.

Code error for my front loadef panasonic washing machine reads U 11


U codes are User "Error" Codes.

CODE U11
The washing machine cannot drain.
Check that filter is not blocked or obstructed.
Check drain hose is clear of any blockage or obstruction.
Check wiring to drain pump (Done only by a Service Technician.)
Check drain pump is not defective (Done only by a Service Technician.)
Check level sensor or switch (Done only by a Service Technician.)
Check wiring to level sensor (Done only by a Service Technician.)

Many Panasonic washing machines seem to have a problem spinning with heavy loads; they become unbalanced and give a U13 "load out of balance" code. Most other brand machines can spin the same "heavy" load with no problem.

Whirlpool washer dryer not spinning one item


In fact there are sensors that can detect higher vibration and there by control the speed. It must be seen if this is available on your model. Please check the capacitor to the motor, couple a similar one and see if the speed improves. Also check for free movement with your hand , if not you need to reset the drive assembly.
finally check on the motor, check the drive.

I have panasonic eco drive washing machine model NA-FS14x1 have error code H57 how to repair


Unscrew the back of the machine to look and see if there is any water in the base of the machine.
How old is your machine? If it's new I'd exchange it for another one like the LP or even Mag tag-
It's not easy to fix these machines and finding the real problem is sometimes a night mare.
The Panasonic error codes are difficult to find, but 'H' faults are generally faults which may or may not be repairable. Like the sump pump -or motor.
The other codes are like this: U11 indicates machine unable to drain. Blockage between drum and drain pump?? Blockage of drain hose??
U13 indicates unbalanced load. Many modern machines suffer from this, but may be related to problem causing U11 fault.
H43 indicates an internal water leak reaching its detector in the machine base.
Like any washing machine, they are great until they go wrong. The problems are usually related to the after sales service.

I hope something helps here-just my 2 cents worth!

What does the fault code U 13 mean on a Panasonic washing machine?


U13 means that the load is unbalanced. When this code is thrown, try shifting the load inside the machine to balance it better.
If the code continually comes on, remove a few pieces of heavy material and try running. If the machine runs fine from that point you may need a mechanic to look at the machine's spinner.

LG wash machin have error code "EU"


There is no such error code. The closest error code would be UE which means that it's a unbalanced load error. If you have a light load, or you are washing a large bedsheet or bedspread, that will cause it to not spin properly because the machine cannot balance the load. The best thing I can recommend is adding about 4 to 5 large bath towels so the weight can be distributed more evenly.
Good luck

My washer goes into spin cycle byitself and when washing,if u r in spin cycle it sets for 14 mins thats good 4 mins into spin all knob lights start flashing and the screen says uL


One thing to understand is that this is a difficult problem to pin down and may end up requiring the control board to be replaced.

The UL or unbalanced load error is displayed when the control board senses an out of balanced load.

You don't indicate if the washer is actually out of balanced or not when the code appears but the description of banging and shaking would indicate it is out of balanced.

If the washer consistently bangs and shakes in spin then I's suggest you remove the spin basket and check under it for obstructions that might prevent the washer from spinning smoothly.

My washer's digital time screen changes from the time remaining to a symbol that looks like "UL".


This error code indicates that an unbalanced load is detected.

Click the following to learn more about unbalanced loads in the BravosTM washers. The example is for an impeller washer but is applicable to washers with agitators.

Is the wash load balanced?

If the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while attempting to balance the load at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press Start/Pause.

Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed against the corners?

If the washer is not level, the washer may be more sensitive to unbalanced loads. The washer must be level from side to side and from front to back. The front and rear feet must be in firm contact with the floor. Make sure the locknuts are tightened. See the Installation Instructions for details.

To remove the error display, press Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel once.

If Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work
Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
Re-select the cycle and press Start/Pause.

Error reading


Hi,

An UE Error Code is indicative of a "Unbalanced Error". This indicates that the drum is not spinning in a smooth rotation. It may be necessary to rearrange the load in the drum

If you tried out all things and it did not work,
then I would say you have a bad motor. The motor has a tach in it that tells the control board if the load is balanced. If the tach is bad in the motor then it will always think the load is unbalanced.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
