My washing machine does not spin the clothes dry-clothes are soggy

Was your load a single item or many over full. Many washer will quit so you can rearrange the items so it can spin balanced. The machine will try 10 times to balance the load , if it can;t do it it turns off and waits for you to do it.

Why does the UE come on ,on the cleaning cycle

The UE error or fault code indicates that the load of clothes is unbalanced. Try rearranging the clothes. Also, if you are only washing a few items, you may need to add a few more to allow the tub to balance. Also, check to be sure the machine is level and that all four feet are touching the floor. Tighten the locking nuts on the feet to lock them into place. If that doesn't seem to be the problem, either the suspension rods or shock absorbers may be broken or worn out.

Comes up with the sign UE ??


Thanks for using FixYa. The error code UE means there are some heavy clothing is loaded. Rearrange items to help balance the load. If the imbalance is heavy, the washer will make several attempts to restart the spin cycle. If an imbalance is still detected, the washer will stop and will display the error code UE. In case, if the load is small then you need to add 2-5 clothes to balance the load. If the load is out of balance then you need to rearrange the clothes to balance it. Although the Washer has an imbalance detection and correction system but if still the problem persists then it means that it is due to control error and needs to replaced preferably by a qualified service technician.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

It shows uL and wont drain

Unbalanced Load - open the unit and re-arrange the clothes.

If they are balanced - the balance sensor should be replaced.

mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, the

detected, the washer will stop
and the error code will be
• Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.
• Rearrange items to help balance the load.

Whirlpool Calypso

This could be an out of balance condition. When its happened to my washer, I rearrange the load if its large enough, and if its not, I find other items of like weight and add them to the load and start over. Calypso's are sensitive to fabric weight, so If you're washing towels, wash only towels and wash cloths. Make sure you put small items, like bras, panties, nighties, etc., in mesh bags and combine them with other light weight fabrics.

Drum off balance

It's either a bad suspension spring or you have a crack in the tub support.

Cloths were soaked !Won't restart, door locks and you hear a buzzind sound ??

Greetings JohnnyWrench,

Information provided by the manufacturer would indicate a few things possibly causing this:

1) Washer was overloaded, remove some of the clothes and continue the cycle.

2) Washer load was too small. Add 1 or 2 similiar items to help balance the load.

3) Load is out of balance, rearrange clothes to allow for more balanced spin.

4) Drain hose might be kinked, straighten drain hose.

I hope some of this helps!

Thank you,

Go Ahead. Use Us.
