SOURCE: Unbalanced loads

There has been a noted problem with the Kenmore Oasis and the "Out of Balance" or "Ob" error. If this is what you are experiencing, the problem has been attributed to a couple of things. Not having sufficient amount of clothes in the wash tub during a wash cycle. That is...smaller loads cause a problem when the washer tries to distribute he weight evenly in the spin cycle. Not enough clothes, no balanced weight, you get an Out of Balance indication. The other problem (which tends to be the more common issue) is the control board under the operator console. The manufacturers developed a new software to run on the new and improved control boards that is supposed to correct this problem. Double check your load distribution first (which it seems you already have), then check with the manufacturer to see if there may be a recall on your washer that corrects this problem at no cost to the consumer. I hope this helps you some.

The "LF" is the code for long fill time. Best bet would be to check the water level control switch.

I assume you are taking dc/UC errors to the console. This is a classic problem with the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW after the 3yr to 5 yr mark. I own the machine and decided to learn what was involved to repair the machine. Take a look at this post and see if will give you some insight to a DIY fix to resolve the unbalance errors. No fix for the tumbler action of twisting up the clothes. After a re-lube of the one-way roller clutch bearing I could wash a single pair of socks or over load the wash basket with bath towels and extra water in the tub with no unbalance errors (dc/UC).

Shout back if you have any questions.

Here is a quick test for the TSD sensor but I believe you have a clutch issue. The TDS test is in the SM I’ve typed it out if you want to give a quick check. I’m sure you will pass and find the one-way roller clutch berings are dry/rusted and causing the dc/UC unbalance condition.



3.0 Tub Displacement Sensor Diagnostics check.


It is possible the Tub Displacement Sensor may have failed try this check which is in the Troubleshooting guide stored in your washer console or refer to the SM.

3a. Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

3b. Press the Super Wash key display reads “in”…something like that.

3c. Press Delicates the Display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).

3d. Push tub to the back right corner of the machine the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).

3e. Press Hand Wash.

3f. Pull tub to the front left corner while pushing the tub down the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). If you get these results your Tub Displacement sensor should be OK and I believe it’s not the component failure producing dc/UC errors in spin cycle. I would remove the clutch for inspection and re-lube or replace if necessary. There is a more technical troubleshooting method to check Tub Displacement Sensor in the Troubleshooting guide and Service manual.

F1 means the control board is shot. Call whirlpool and they should take care of the parts and labor even though your machine is out of warranty.

Why does it always become unbalanced in spin cycle?


how confident are you to get inside it? Check the balance springs and shock absorbers.

Normally it is two simple things.

First the machine must be level front to back and left to right. Also all 4 feet must be in equal contact with the floor.

Make sure you load the washer evenly with clothes. Mix large and small items so when the spin starts the clothes even out. Never wash just one large item that is very absorbent, like one bathrobe or one blanket..

My washer always gets unbalanced load with 7 minutes remaining.


This sounds like a problem with an unbalanced washer or unbalanced load. Your washer has four leveling rubber screws underneath. To keep it from rocking make sure all four points are touching the floor at all times. Washer machine being level is a great plus. Also it could be the amount of clothes put into the washer. The more clothes you put in the less chance of your load being uneven.

Is it always loud or just when it is a full load. If the load is unbalanced it will be loud. Most F/L washers today have some kind of unbalanced load detection, but they are not all that great. If it spins quietly when empty it is just an unbalanced load. Don't over load and don't mix rugs with clothes, pillows, etc...

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.

It shows uL and wont drain


Unbalanced Load - open the unit and re-arrange the clothes.

If they are balanced - the balance sensor should be replaced.

UE is likely an unbalanced load or load is too large. Reduce the size of the load and your issue should be resolved.

Vibration of wash machine


Hi!

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary. If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
