Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer shakes violently when spinning at high speed.

The uL code comes on and I have to redistribute the clothes to balance it. I always lay the clothes in a balanced pattern but the clothes consistently unbalance and the machine shakes really bad. The machine moves around and bangs into the washer.

What does the error code UL mean?


UL means UnLevel. To fix , open door of washer, and redistribute the clothing/laundry in the machine, and press start. It should start spinning again. Sometimes , if you have a overly heavy load of laundry above will not work. What I have done is, put my weight on the machine (upper body laying on the top) until the machine has extracted enough water so the machine will be balanced.

I get error code ul several times with every load


MAY HAVE A PROBLEM IN THE CONTROL BOARD, OR MORE LIKELY THE COUNTER WEIGHT OR BALANCE STABLELIZERS ARE BAD? THEY ARE WHAT BALANCES THE DRUM IN THE WASHER. AND CAN CAUSE AN UNSTABLE LOAD AND ERROR MESSAGE.

How do I fix a front load washer that shakes violently on the last spin cycle?


CLOTHES UNBALANCED? OR COUNTER BALANCE SUPPORTS BROKEN, AND NEED REPLACMENT? WASHERS have many different weight balancers but sounds like u need to take body off and have look at the counter weights set up while running machine, just jumper the door switch to keep a closed line. and then agin sometimes its as simple as making sure ur washer is leveled on ur floor, check ur leg adjusters as they do get funny at times..

Why won't my washer go to a high speed spin when in the spin cycle? it drains the water out of the drum, but it doesn't go into the high speed spin.


well there is two possibilities and one is a safety precaution to keep from ruining the washer .
if the washer cannont distribute the load evenly it will only go into a slow spin try adding more clothes.... to evenly coat the drum >>. the other is if it is out of balance or the wsher isnt't level it will shake violently and spin in slow cause it detects an imbalance problem if this machine has operated a long time overladed , or unlevel it can wear out the tub schocks which takes all vibrations of the tub to give more of a gently ride the a are like schock absorbers....

Ul code about 10 to 15 seconds into spin cycle machine is level code comes up even if i run it empty


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. UL is displayed when the machine/motor control detects an off-balance load, and is steady on while the washer runs a mini-cycle to rebalance the load.
• Display clears if mini-cycle successfully rebalanced the load.
• If the mini-cycle is unsuccessful, uL will flash until the door lid is opened, allowing the customer to view and redistribute the load. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Noisy when trying to spin. display uL instead of time remaining. Stopped, opened lid and redistributed load. Started up again. cycle continued but still displaying uL. Not sure if load still unbalanced?...


REPLACE YOUR SUSPENSION RODS. You can get them at a discount applicance parts store online for about $60. Our washer is about 8 years old and has been getting unbalanced on every load. I replaced the suspension rods tonight and and it solved the problem.

Constantly off balance


I have a kenmore elite oasis top loading washer about 3 years old. I took it apart and checked the springs and the rods and the plastic ends that hold the rods in place and all of them look fine. I run an empty load in the washer and it still goes unbalanced on the spin cycle. My water bill has tripled due to the fact that every load takes 3 to 4 washings. I need help please!

Shakes violently in the spin cycle


hi...
the reason it shakes violently is because
1)Most noisesfrom a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loudthumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have becomeunbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-startit. Repeat these steps if necessary.

or else the other reason may be



2) If your washer doesn't spin or agitate on either the delicate or regular cycle, check these:

Selector switch
Clutch assembly
Drive motor
Selector switch Ifyour washer has a selector switch on the control panel, make sure thebutton for your selection is pressed all the way in, or set properly.

Clutch assembly ManyGE®/Hotpoint® washers use a clutch and an automatic shift lever. Thisassembly is quite complicated. If there's a problem with it, youprobably should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor manywashing machines have multiple-speed drive motors. Though it'suncommon, the drive motor may work fine on one speed but not onanother. If the drive motor has failed on one speed, you need toreplace the entire motor.


On something like this you will need to
remove the washer wrap toinspect the suspension springs & base assembly. Be sure the shippingpins have been removed. The tub should float freely.

I think my solution would have helped you...rate for me if it is been useful.....thank you for using fixya....

Samsung P801 Front Loader shakes violently during spin cycle.


When the washer goes into spin cycle it is suppost to start at a slow speed and continue to increase speed (to a maximum of 800 RPM) as the water leaves the clothes. Your washer is going directly to 800 RPM which causes the washer to shake and stop giving you the E4 code. The control board that controls this speed increase must be replaced.
