SOURCE: "OL" error message

I believe that I had this same problem. The machine was skipping the wash cycle. After the water level rose to where you would expect the machine to go into an agitation cycle to wash clothes; it would start a spin cycle and drain the water. In the process of spinning it would stop to display the OL message over and over again as quick as you redistribute the load.

I found the problem to be clothes that got stuck underneath the impeller (round thing at the bottom center of the basket). Somehow I also had clothes get pulled down and got stuck underneath the basket next to the lint filter, these items were shredded to the point that they probably were not causing any issues, none the less they should not have been in there. Even though it was not the problem, I went ahead and took out and cleaned the lint filter since it was within reach.

This machine works a bit different then other machines. The agitation cycle is dependent upon the basket floating up and disengaging from the drive shaft. I guess the clothes that got stuck beneath the impeller did not allow the basket to float high enough to disengage from the drive shaft. Because the basket was still engaged to the drive shaft the drive motor would spin the basket and start a drain cycle rather agitate the load to wash it. The imbalance of the basket caused by the clothes stuck underneath the impeller kicked of the OL error since the basket was spinning at an unacceptable angle. I am not a repair dude but based on my observation of what I did to fix the problem this explanation works for me.

I've attached some pages of a repair manual that I found on-line to illustrate the areas that I am referring to.

SOURCE: whirlpool wtw6200 cabrio washer error message f 51

I work for an appliance repair company and I had a recent service call for the same exact situation on this washer. I also know that Rotary Position Sensor is linked to the F-51 error code. I have found that this is not always the case. On this paticular call the F-51 error code was caused by a piece of clothing (sock, wash cloth, etc.) being stuck or jammed between the internal basket and the outer tub. I removed the cloth and the washer ran fine, so give that a check first before you spend the money.

Most likely the RPS sensor or the control board. Originally they had trouble with the RPS sensors.

SOURCE: Washer wont fill with water/clothes dont get clean

Actually the machine is working like it is designed. When the correct soap is used, these machines clean clothes better than the old style. Try using a major brand of soap like Tide, Bold, or Cheer. Make sure it has the HE design on the bottle. This means that it is made just for the new High Efficiency machines. Also make sure you don't use to much. Read the directions. If this is done correctly, I'm sure you will find that it does clean great. I was like you when I first saw one of these new machines. "These is no way you can clean dirty and I mean dirty clothes without enough water to cover them. Well since, I have became a believer. They have put a lot of thought into designing these things. They had to of, for them to clean as good as they do.

Whirlpool cabrio model 6300sw1 won't aggitate and gives ol code


It is overload error.
"oL" (Over Load)
Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to fill •
and begin the wash cycle. If the washer is overloaded, it will
drain any water and detergent that was added during the fill.
To correct the overload, remove several items and add
detergent. Close lid and press START.

Cabrio washer error code OL after about 10 mins.


The ol error can be caused by many problems, first let's address the over filling of the water, there is a plastic tube that runs from your control to the outer tub. This tube provides the pressure to the sensor in the control board to control the water level in the tub of the washer. If this line has a pin hole or is clogged, this could effect the water level. If your tube is ok then the control board is bad.
the ol error could be any of the following:
cloths under the tub,
bad bearings
basket hub
stater motor
rps sensor
control board

Washer stops and shows oL over load


The "oL" error code in the Cabrio and Bravo washers means the motor is sensing an overload ("oL") condition. While this could indicate a problem with the motor, it usually doesn't. Most of the time, you'll see this error code when one of two things is going on:

1) There's a piece of clothing stuck between the inner basket and outer tub.

2) The tub is not floating freely, usually because it's seized to the drive shaft by rust and crudus; FYI: this condition is almost always caused by using non-HE detergent in this washer. Also, be aware that, if this is the case, it can be very difficult to remove the basket from a badly corroded drive shaft, could even be a two-man job.

Here is a video to help you get into the machine.

Keep me posted!

The oL warning comes on, just after the machine fills with water then it clicks through the cycles the water drains and the oL signal comes on. This even happenens when the clean cycle is operating.


oL Overloaded.
"oL" flashes when you got too dang many clothes in there. 18 pounds dry weight per load is what I go by. If the load is fine you could have an item of clothing in between tubs not allowing basket to engage.

Hi I have a Kenmore 110.27087601 model cti360000 The washer does not go in to an agitate mode. For a regular wash it will add water and spin 3 times. Then it fills with a large amount of water while...


OL error means the Motor Controller has sensed an Overload.

The oL code means the motor control board is struggling to power the motor up. If it recurs after removing some clothes - usually this means a new motor control.... or worse - a new bearing.

If it were a problem with the tub floating up, the unit would spin instead of nutate.

Bearing failure in this machine is very common.

I suspect the drive shaft and bearing are the problem. The bearing and shaft are part of the outer tub.

The new outer tub with bearing W10128830 cost approximately $197 dollars.

If you can get access to the shaft it may be an Emory cloth will help smooth things down so that you no longer get the OL code.

This is an ambitious do-it-yourself project... as most appliance repairmen don't understand how this machine operates.

We have a newer Whirlpool Cabrio washer and no matter how many clothes we put into it we always get a ol error.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. oL flashes when the machine/motor control detects a load size that exceeds the washer’s capacity. Open the door lids to clear display, remove excess laundry, then restart the cycle. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Display shows oL - Top-load washer


That oL is overload. You need to remove some clothes. On this model the motor can sense to much weight in the washer. If it does it without any clothes in there check for something jammed between the tubs.

What is oL code?


ol code is for over load. Too many clothes. Sometimes you will get this code with nothing in the tub and the water keeps filling then goes to drain. if this is why your asking then pull the back off the washer and pull the clear tube off the tub. Blow in the tube and then the washer will take off and start operating correctly, Well till you stop blowing. This is a pressure problem and air is leaking right there at the tub and tube. I suggest a little plumbers dope and put the hose back on. if machine does not return to normal then you got a little dope in the air way. Pull the tube and replace again. Wa La!
