My washing machine is about 20 months old and just recently started coming up with an error code on the digital display, "OL." The washing cycle is terminated at that point as a result. Can you please help.

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!

OL error code


Hi jbrundage1. I believe you have a UL error code on the washer. It means that the sensors in the washer are sensing the unit is unbalanced. When the washer is empty, set it to a spin or rinse and spin setting. Run the washer through the cycle empty, as it will help to remove any excess water in the tub. Also, make sure the washer is level, as it is balanced on springs, and that could be throwing the sensors off. I hope these suggestions prove helpful. Sincerely, Melanie, Maytag Social Media Representative.

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.. :)

What does it mean when the machine gives an oL sign when starting the wash cycle?is it a quick fix and how much will it cost? It is a top load whirlpool cabrio washer.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error oL means overloaded and it flashes when the machine/motor control detects a load size that exceeds the washer’s capacity. To clear this error you’ll have to open the door lid to clear display, remove excess laundry, then restart the cycle. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Cabrio toploader keeps displaying oL error code even if only a few items.. Been in storage for a few months..


I've been through the F1 and the OL issues. Regarding the F1 error, I had to have a new controller installed after I talked Whirlpool into providing it. Regarding the OL issue, I just purchased a new suspension set (long rods w/ springs suspending the tub from the frame) through Ebay that fixed this problem. The problem is with the suspension springs which weaken over time. The rods and springs are easy to replace once you hinge the machines top up and back. You won't believe the "springy" difference, or lack thereof, between the old "sprung" springs and the new ones. Additionally, the new set includes plastic cups, in lieu of grease, which go on top of the frame to cradle the new rod caps. The suspension spring set I bought off Ebay for my WTW6600S was part number W10189077 for approx $31 w/ shipping. Thank goodness the constant banging and OL error is GONE!

"OL" error message


I believe that I had this same problem. The machine was skipping the wash cycle. After the water level rose to where you would expect the machine to go into an agitation cycle to wash clothes; it would start a spin cycle and drain the water. In the process of spinning it would stop to display the OL message over and over again as quick as you redistribute the load.

I found the problem to be clothes that got stuck underneath the impeller (round thing at the bottom center of the basket). Somehow I also had clothes get pulled down and got stuck underneath the basket next to the lint filter, these items were shredded to the point that they probably were not causing any issues, none the less they should not have been in there. Even though it was not the problem, I went ahead and took out and cleaned the lint filter since it was within reach.

This machine works a bit different then other machines. The agitation cycle is dependent upon the basket floating up and disengaging from the drive shaft. I guess the clothes that got stuck beneath the impeller did not allow the basket to float high enough to disengage from the drive shaft. Because the basket was still engaged to the drive shaft the drive motor would spin the basket and start a drain cycle rather agitate the load to wash it. The imbalance of the basket caused by the clothes stuck underneath the impeller kicked of the OL error since the basket was spinning at an unacceptable angle. I am not a repair dude but based on my observation of what I did to fix the problem this explanation works for me.

I've attached some pages of a repair manual that I found on-line to illustrate the areas that I am referring to.
