Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

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.

Ul is displayed what does this mean


UL Stand for unbalanced load
probably the balance rods washer has 4 of them and they work like shocks for the tub and if they go bad than they allow the drum to spin wildly.

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.

Wtw6600 washer has UL code and has trouble agitating and spinning.


The UL code means Unbalanced Load. Open the lid and move your clothes around so they are distributed evenly. Your spin cycle will then work normally.

Kenmore Oasis washing machine is giving me a UL code with every wash now. Do I have to call for service or can I fix it myself?


See the following Whirlpool Service Manual for their Cabrio washer which is the same as the Sears Oasis.

You may get an idea of the (UL Unbalanced Load) problem and solutions.

Hi there.

Sorry to hear this. Some washers are notorious for this. I would buy a different brand next time.

Untill something breaks - try loading the machine with a couple of towels when doing sheets - aiming to keep the drum 70% full when loaded.
It's often when there's only 1/2 load that things get unbalanced.

Hope this helps.
Richie.
