The door latch may be signaling it is open at the start of the spin cycle.

SOURCE: UL Code

Solved the unbalanced problem - open the top of the machine (press in with a flat putty knife about 3" in on the front on each side while lifting up as there are 2- 1" wide catches). Once both sides are unlatched, raise the lid then slightly lift the rear of the lid so that it fits into the curved part at the top of the hinges then open all the way - tape the lid to the top so it doesn't flap about and scotch the lid to keep it from falling back down on you. Now, look around - see all that rust?  The rust has fallen into and gotten underneath one or more of the 4 white plastic suspension "ball joints" which have probably totally dried out by now from their factory grease because of the water, bleach, and rust particles.  Having someone help you, simply lift up on one of the 4 corner suspension rods - gravity and weight is all that holds them down. The white ball will lift out of the socket and still be attached to the rod. Clean out the rust, lightly sand the "socket" with emery cloth, then slop in a fingerful of grease. I used automotive wheel bearing grease with graphite in it. Also scrub off all embedded rust on the white plastic ball. Lower that corner back into the newly cleaned and greased socket and repeat for the other 3 corners. Now when you move the tub around notice how the balls pivot in their sockets like they are supposed to. When they were dry and rusty they wouldn't move enough to allow the tub to twist like it should so it slammed around.  Now, shake your head in disgust that after only 2 years there is so much rust that you wonder if it will make it another year before falling apart, close the lid, and try another load.  That totally solved my off-balance problem where even a single handkerchief would give the UL error. It is still a finicky machine, but at least once again works like it did when new.

SOURCE: F50 error code and Whirlpool Cabrio

JUST SPOKE WITH WHIRLPOOL ABOUT THE F-50 CODE. THEY SAID THAT THEY ARE AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND THEY ARE PAYING TO FIX IT. ALSO THE CONTROLL BOARD AND THE RPS SENSOR MUST BE REPLACED TO FIX THE PROBLEM. THE OWNER MUST CALL WHIRLPOOL, NOT THE TECH, TO GET THEM TO PAY FOR IT. HOPE THIS HELPS.

We keep getting the UL (unbalanced load) code on our Whirlpool Cabrio washer (model # WTW8800YC1). Is there a way to determine if it is the bearings or the suspension rods?


You can check the bearings by axially moving the drum against the axis in which it spins, backwards and forwards on a top loader, or up and down on a front loader.

More likely to be a suspension spring broken, or come unhooked.

Try the washer with two bath towels to check for uneven loading.

My WTW7600XWO washer stops with 11 minutes left to go and UL comes on


The UL code means that the load is unbalanced. With the Cabrio washers, frequently this is due to the failure of the suspension rods that hold the tub. To check this, use a putty knife to separate the clips that hold the top of the washer at the front of the unit. Then lift up the top. Check the suspension rods and balls. Also check the wiring at the motor and the control panel, just to rule out any electrical cause for the UL error. You probably only need to replace the suspension spring kit, W10247710, is available from several sources, including: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-suspension-spring-kit-w10247710-ap4411122.html . There are videos showing the the replacement procedure available online.

I hope this helps.

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio washer Model number WTW63003WO that gets off balance and displays a UL code.


It's important to check the level of the unit, and assure all adjustable feet are firmly planted on the ground first. A very common problem with these units are the suspension dampening rods, when they get weak they allow the tub to move around too much while spinning, and sometimes washing. A simple test by an experienced technician who knows what to look for would be to reach into the wash basket while the machine is empty and off, and push the tub all the way down till it stops, the technician will be looking for the amount of resistance it takes for this to happen. The easier it is to push the basket and tub assembly down to the end of it's travel the weaker the suspension rods are. At least one update to these suspension rods have been made, suggesting the current replacements are stronger. Part# W10247710, based on a model number of WTW6300WW0. Pleazer Appliance...

Whirlpool Cabrio spins off center and stop with ul code


Ul-Unbalanced Load

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.

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.
