If this is a basic top load, direct drive washer, that can be caused by a badly worn clutch slipping under load. An easy way to check is to use a object to depress the lid switch actuator, and operate the spin cycle with the lid open, if the motor is running but the basket is not turning, reach in and give the basket a little help. If the basket starts to spin with assistance, you need to replace the clutch. Also check if the gearcase is leaking oil, if so, replace both, as the leaking oil can contribute to the clutch slipping.

When the washer displays uL when spinning?


'Unbalanced Load' occurs when the machine detects that one side of the tub is heavier than the other.
This most often happens when heavy and/or large items become pushed to one side of the tub during the wash and become much heavier when the spin cycle engages.
This is more often seen in 'tub' style machines rather than front loaders.
Usually the machine has a safety system which shuts down the spin cycle and 'buzzes' to alert you to reach in and move things around in order to rebalance the load.

Not spining out good. Looks like its spining slow


Make certain that the spin speed is where you want it (e.g.: high spin). Also, make certain that you aren't overloading the washer. A heavier load will slow down the spin.

You may have a worn drive belt (loss its tension on the pulley). Contact an appliance service company.

Spin cycle won't work


this is the spin balance protection system cutting in.

take out some of the heavier items in the load and try the spin cycle again.
