Question about Home
They told us to balance the legs on the botton, whirlpool - difficult to turn the knob.
how else may you balance the bucket
This Solution is Considering that there is nothing wrong with the Washing Machine itself.......If the Adjustment Knobs are Rusty and will not move, you can try and spray or apply WD 40 or Liquid Wrench to the Nuts and Bolts. Something to loosen the Bolts. Apply it a few times a day and let it sit for a few hours or longer. Then you can try to move the Adjustment bolts again. Okay you tried that and it didn't work. The only Option left is to SHIM underneath the Adjustment Bolts. You Will Need a Level and another person to help with LIfting the machine. You can use Wooden Shims, or even better yet you can use Rubber Chair Bottom Caps or Rubber pieces that are used under furniture legs. You can find these at most Hardware stores. Just Start at the corner that needs to be raised and start SHIMMING from there!! If you still have problems and your washer is working properly, then you may have to unhook the washer, lay it on its side and remove and install new Adjustment Bolts. Hope this assists you in your quest to balance your washer.....Joe

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.
