Question about Kenmore Oasis 27042 Top Load Washer
The ul and ol are unbalance load and over load.
I would suspect the suspension rods, if you look you can see the tub is suspended by 4 rods (10 in image) and spring loaded shock built into them.
The crack in the stator is nothing that should cause any worry about.
If the suspension rods, springs and holders are all okay the next likely suspect is the basket itself.

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.
Keep me posted!

One thing to understand is that this is a difficult problem to pin down and may end up requiring the control board to be replaced.
The UL or unbalanced load error is displayed when the control board senses an out of balanced load.
You don't indicate if the washer is actually out of balanced or not when the code appears but the description of banging and shaking would indicate it is out of balanced.
If the washer consistently bangs and shakes in spin then I's suggest you remove the spin basket and check under it for obstructions that might prevent the washer from spinning smoothly.
