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!

I keep getting the OL message on my Kenmore Oasis He 2706 washer


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I'm pretty sure I know what you're referring to and contrary to what has been posted by another FixYa memeber, it likely is not the motor assembly...more often it is just an item stuck under the basket/drive hub as most with REAL experience would know.

In fact I can explain what needs to be done to gain access and repair though it is pretty involved (via removing the tub...it's pretty easy once you see how...much easier with the manual and some guidance).

As I alluded to, it is most likely the drive/spin basket hub under the inner basket (spin basket) and it is being jammed by a sock, undergarment or the like, but you'll need to remove the complete outer tub assembly unfortunately.

This almost always manifest's in the "oL" error code (possibly even error "UL" & "F51") and prevents proper wash or spin...though it usually will certainly fill and drain O.K...unless the error appear's many times it may simply go into a shut down/no action (F1) mode.

I can provide a follow up post on how to do this, including pictures and step by step guidance if you think you are capable, or I alternatively can provide you a service manual if you post an email address.

I'll watch for your reply. Thank's for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I keep getting the OL message on my kenmore oasis he 2706


The error is actually correct. OL means "over load" which the unit actually thinks is happening because the motor is struggling to turn the motor. You'll need to order and replace the motor to fix this problem unfortunately.

I hope this helps, abd just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment. Have a nice weekend and thanks for using FixYa.

Jose.

We are getting the oL message even when we wash a light load or even run the machine empty. The machine seems to be spinning, but cuts off with the "oL" message sometime between the rinse and...


Hi

Error OL means that the washer has sensed an overload (OL) condition. It can also be a false error code appearing due to faulty lid switch. Sometimes this error code appears when lid is not closed/opened properly. You can check the lid switch for any disconnections, if the connection to lid switch is fine then use a multimeter to check the continuity of the lid switch. If the lid switch is fine then there is a piece of clothing stuck between inner basket and the outer tub. Disconnect the washer from the power outlet and then try moving the drum with your hand and check if it turns freely or is offering any resistance. If it is not moving freely then it is due to rusted drive shaft or motor. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

Cabrio toploader keeps displaying oL error code even if only a few items.. Been in storage for a few months..


I've been through the F1 and the OL issues. Regarding the F1 error, I had to have a new controller installed after I talked Whirlpool into providing it. Regarding the OL issue, I just purchased a new suspension set (long rods w/ springs suspending the tub from the frame) through Ebay that fixed this problem. The problem is with the suspension springs which weaken over time. The rods and springs are easy to replace once you hinge the machines top up and back. You won't believe the "springy" difference, or lack thereof, between the old "sprung" springs and the new ones. Additionally, the new set includes plastic cups, in lieu of grease, which go on top of the frame to cradle the new rod caps. The suspension spring set I bought off Ebay for my WTW6600S was part number W10189077 for approx $31 w/ shipping. Thank goodness the constant banging and OL error is GONE!

I get a message "oL" & the clothes are not spinning


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.
