Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The problems you are facing are due to gear case, from where the washer is leaking oil. And due to that the washer tub has become unbalanced and you are getting error UL which means load unbalnced. Unbalancing is causing that noise. 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.
However, in your case the load can't be balanced as the transmission oil is leaking and due to this it may have happened that drive coupler between your motor and transmission is broke

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

My Whirlpool Cabrio top loading washing machine stops with an error OL . nothing wrong with the loading, this is only a small whash. Where is located this sensor for overload?


The sensing is done by measuring the motor amp draw. If the motor amp draw is high that is an indication of a heavy loaded washer which could cause the motor to overheat OR too much soap being used, OR the wrong soap being used, OR something between tubs. If you is getting an OL and the clothes is not the problem then you may have an item lodged between the tubs. You must remove the inner tub and get that thang outta there. Cabrio service manual

Dark clothes have lint left on them. what could help this problem?


Are you sure it is lint and not soap? My washer does this, and it looks like lint, but it is soap.
If it is lint, always keep the lint collector inside the agitator clean.

If it is soap, and this might work for lint:
1. Turn clothes, particularly black clothes, inside out.
2. Use a concentrated soap with little or no filler.
3. Use less soap than normal.
4. Fully dissolve soap before adding clothes.
5. Run rinse cycle again after completing full wash cycle.

Washing less effectively over time


I just had my Maytag dishwasher serviced. It was getting less and less efficient over time. The items on the top rack weren't even getting clean. The repairman showed me the problem: the water was not spraying very well at all.

There's a round water filter at the bottom, underneath the spray arm. It's a hard plastic mesh ring, maybe eight inches across and four inches high. This ring was completely covered in garbage. Gunk, pieces of cellophane, you name it. No way water could get through it. I was amazed to see how clogged it was.

He took out the ring, scrubbed in clean, and put it back. The water now sprays like there's no tomorrow. Practically like new.

Powdery residue leaked out of bottom of door. I thought it was soap so redid dishes with no soap and now just a smaller amount leaked out mixed with a little water. I though maybe the dispenser was...


the water with sop might still in the pump that is way you still see sop, but the leak might come from the seal of the door or the spray arm :
Check your spray arm that nothing got stuck in its holes. make sure the spray arm is turning all the time when using the machine :
put the spray arm in 90 degree position, turn the unit on , open the door after few min check that the spray arm move...
make sure your seal of the door is clean and nothing prevent it to close evenly the door...
good luck 911servicetoday . com

Tub bearing is making grining noise


yes when the washer sounds like an airplane taking off during the spin cycle, it is a worn rear bearing.
it does happen from the wrong type of soap being used. the suds from regular soap will destroy the seal and allow water to get into the rear bearings causing the bearing to fail and become noisy.
HE type soaps have been recommended by the manufacturer for about 6-7 years now and you MUST use them to prevent this from happening. it can also happen with HE is you just use too much.
now the good news... the inner tub has a lifetime warranty but the outertub, comes with seals and bearings, may only have a 5 year part only warranty.
what you can do is to call frigidaire at the 800# and ask if they can check the warranty for you. a 3 year old and a 5 year old unit might be covered by a part warranty. if so then the labor to replace the tubs will be about 200-300 bucks. i know its a pricey repair but is certainly cheaper then buying a new washer.
by the way, all front load washers will do this if you use the wrong soap.

Dishwasher Leaking


Hello jferguson29.
Welcome to fixya.

You said, water splashing over tub into door panel. It leaks with or without being loaded with dishes.
You checked the lower wash arm but found no visible cracks or breaks. The leaking water is clear not soapy.

What is the brand and model number?
And how old is it???

There are a couple reasons water may be leaking out the door of a dishwasher.
1. The water is most likely coming out the bottom of the door where there is no rubber seal.
2. The rubber seal is around the door jam on top and both sides and not on the bottom. This means if the dishwasher has to much detergent in it the soap suds push only the water higher than the front edge of the wash basin and out the bottom of the door where there is no seal!
3. Fill only the soap cup that can close for the secondary wash. The open cup is a pre-wash and mostly not needed unless the food is baked on.This just wastes money to fill both of them every time.
4. And if you are using liquid detergent you only need half the amount from the powdered soap!
try less soap. Remember to much soap too can cause the water overflow.
5. And the last would be that the drain is clogged and caused a back up large or small and then the overflow!
is there water in the bottom when the wash is done?
Soap is usually the culprit, not that there can't be a leak in an old drain or water supply hose!
Go with the soap idea first!

Let me know how you are!
How old is the washer ?

Here is an interesting report I just read!!!!!!!!!!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old washer

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your washer,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your washer is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that washers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your washer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new washer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive washer
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of washers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Water Leaking really bad from the Dispenser area


Disconnect the plug from the outlet. Remove the top of the washer panel by removing the 2 back hex screws then sliding it back to lift it off of the washer. Take off the front control panel by removing the phillips screws holding it in place. Remove the dispenser drawer. Check the dispenser housing for clogs or lime build up at the bottom of the dispenser housing. Or the drain hose (large black hose attached to the front of the drawer housing) to the washer may be crimped or clogged.

What to use in my washer?


If your washer is rated for HE detergent, then you're supposed to use HE detergent. The reason being is that HE detergent is concentrated and specifically made for washing machines that use LESS water than conventional washers. Regular detergents are formulated for machines that use about 35 gallons of water for a full wash tub. If you use that same soap in a washer that only uses 5 to 7 gallons of water, you are in affect putting a higher concentration of soap in your new washer. Originally, manufacturers of HE machines stated that you could use regular detergents as long as you cut back on the amount. They later retracted that statement, because regular detergents were damaging the HE washers. You should review your warranty closely. Most newer models now have a disclaimer that states if you use the wrong detergent in your new washer, the warranty becomes null and void. I hope this answers any questions you may have.
