Question about GE Energy Star 3.7 IEC Cu. Ft. Front Load Washer with Stainless Steel Basket

1 Answer

Keep getting the overload message "OL"

I keep getting the "OL" on my display despite removing all bulky clothing or just washing undergarments. I've unplugged the machine in hopes it would reset, it didn't work. The final spin cycle isn't spinning, I guess do to the "OL". Does anyone have any trouble shooting techniques for the spin cycles, overload message or resetting the maching.
Thanks

The washer is a: Kenmoor Elite Oasis HE

Try unplugging for 12 hrs before reconnecting
If the problem continues then the controler board is damaged and will need to be replaced.

Hello I have kenmore washer m 110.28072800 wash cycle doesn't finish, doesn't agitate clothes, get oL on display. Anyone had this problem?


If you haven't got it now, google your model of top-loading washer - manuals are always helpful - Being it is a top loader, oL as most can expect means overload! The simple response is to unload some of the clothes and try doing a smaller load - the newer top loader machines are not as 'strong' as the old days with an agitator - second possibility is whether or not you have lost something that has gone down between the inner and outer bowls that make up the washing are - not sure as I have not seen one exactly, but most of the bowls where the clothes sit, have holes - anything stuck in a hole causing the inner and outer bowls from working as they were designed? good Luck

My maytag washer is flashing oL what do I do?


I have a Maytag washer, and it's a great feature to know when you have too many clothes in the tub for them all to get clean/spin. OL=Overload

My washer will not spin and oL keeps coming up on it


My guess would be that oL stands for "overloaded" and that it will not run becuase of a weight sensor that says there are too many clothes in the load. You might try removing some of the clothes to see if it will spin as expected. if not, maybe the sensor responsible for reporting this error is registering an overload situation even when there isn't one.

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 over load display after a few minutes even on the clean machine setting. i have taken clothes out but does not help. on the clean machine setting there arent any clothes in it but after...


I dotn have soe USA/Canada numer, but could answer and comment that your "OL" codes, with the tub empty, indicates, that there's a problem in the drive/ tub system or the fill level.
Two choice there, first is that your hub mechanism is sticking. This model floats the basket, and although it does not say so, I am guessing that too heavy a load stops this process. In your case the floating mechanism may be sticking, so the machine thinks it is too heavy a load.

The second possibility is a bad machine control board. In the next link culd find the Repair2000/Library/CABRIOHEWASHER as reference guide to solve it.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this answer)..

The washer stops half way through all cycles and displays "oL" .


Error oL means overload.
If the "oL" error code appears, the washer has been filled with a load that is too large for its capacity, causing it to drain.

*Remove some items from the washer and add more detergent since the previous amount will have drained with the water.
*Close the washer and press the START/PAUSE/Cancel button to remove error displayed and restart the cycle.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:

*Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
*Plug in washer or reconnect power.
*Re-select the cycle and press Start.

NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and the condition above has been checked, call for service.

Hope this helps.. :)

Our Neptune Washer won't start up. It shows a Code (ol). What does this mean? We;ve tried unplugging & and Re-loading it. Still OL code.


From the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual page 14 that error code = oL Machine Paused-Load Wedging

Google this "16022808 Revision 0 December 2003" to find the Service Manual if you are going to DIY the fix.

Code ol


Hi

Error OL means overload. oL flashes when the machine/motor control detects a load size that exceeds the washer's capacity. To clear the error open the door lid and restart the cycle by removing excess laundry. If error doesn't clears then unplug the washer for 5-10 minutes and check. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
