Hi


Thanksfor using FixYa. It seems that the bearing in the outer tub has gone badcausing the error in the spin mode as well. Also if it’s shaking and is out ofbalance then the cause can also be something else under the spin basket. If it’sthe bearing then replacing the outer tub is a good option. You can also checkthis picture on how to remove the spin basket. Please doaccept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for furtherassistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Washer goes into OL or UL after 14 to 16 minutes in any wash cycle. Change cycle to drain & spin and it will drain water and spin clothes pre dry clothes for dryer


This is a tough one as so many things can trigger the OL overload first I would raise the top panel check the 4 suspension rods one each corner make not bent that the spring still attached at bottom also up top where rods hook into plastic cup that there is no rust so the plastic inserts can move freely if all is good remove basket from tub making sure nothing in between pretty common with the machine empty grab the basket and see if you can raise it about an inch and it falls back into place it should this is the hub that engages, a cracked basket ring that has lost its fluids with do this very rare with an empty machine spin the basket you should her what sounds like water sloshing around this is the fluid in the basket ring have seen them loose normally you get a clicking sound now the tech sheet does not offer any help with unbalanced load or over load but to say redistribute load there are no sensors on the machine to create these codes the control senses drag on the motor which causes this to flash after checking everything I mentioned the factory would recommend changing the RPS sensor first from there the rotor and stator then the control usually when these parts are suspect you would get an F47 error code sorry I cant pinpoint the problem but usually these codes appear in the spin cycle not wash.

Kenmore Elite Oasis washer does not lock


First, OL/UL stands for "Overload", so in other words, the washer things the tub is too hard to move because it's overloaded and the motor is struggling or the unit is way out of balance causing the washer to struggle. The most common problem is a nut below the inner tub that needs to "float". Floating is when the tub fills up with water to a certain level the inner basket will rise about 1 inch from the center agitator. What this does is disengage the basket from the motor so that the agitator can rotate independently from the basket. If the basket does not float then when it tries to agitate the whole basket will turn back and forth at the same speed as the agitator and this will cause the OL/UL error code.

How do you solve the balance problem in the kenmore elite oasis even with no clothes it in


Try running with no clothes? If still shows UL when empty running, your machine needs service. P.S. use HE detergent or else.

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.

My oasis he is not a see through top but i keep getting the ul message and when it goes through the spin cycle it sounds like ajet engine. iS THERE A SENSOR THAT NEEDS REPLACED.Sears wants 129.00 to just...


UL is unbalance load. 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. Page 57 shows the suspension
rod removal to get the tub out. These rods (4) hold the tub in place. Sorry I do not have an oasis manual but this Bravos manual will give you an Idea. One of those rods could be worn to the point it is throwing the the whole tub off. If a rod is broken then the tub could be pressing against the base and binding the motor, causing that noise. You gonna have to check and see.

Everytime it goes to spin it starts shaking real bad displays ul then ol not even anything in it i have pulled tub there is a crack in the piece with windings but not affecting windings


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.

Constantly off balance


I have a kenmore elite oasis top loading washer about 3 years old. I took it apart and checked the springs and the rods and the plastic ends that hold the rods in place and all of them look fine. I run an empty load in the washer and it still goes unbalanced on the spin cycle. My water bill has tripled due to the fact that every load takes 3 to 4 washings. I need help please!

UL Code


Solved the unbalanced problem - open the top of the machine (press in with a flat putty knife about 3" in on the front on each side while lifting up as there are 2- 1" wide catches). Once both sides are unlatched, raise the lid then slightly lift the rear of the lid so that it fits into the curved part at the top of the hinges then open all the way - tape the lid to the top so it doesn't flap about and scotch the lid to keep it from falling back down on you. Now, look around - see all that rust?  The rust has fallen into and gotten underneath one or more of the 4 white plastic suspension "ball joints" which have probably totally dried out by now from their factory grease because of the water, bleach, and rust particles.  Having someone help you, simply lift up on one of the 4 corner suspension rods - gravity and weight is all that holds them down. The white ball will lift out of the socket and still be attached to the rod. Clean out the rust, lightly sand the "socket" with emery cloth, then slop in a fingerful of grease. I used automotive wheel bearing grease with graphite in it. Also scrub off all embedded rust on the white plastic ball. Lower that corner back into the newly cleaned and greased socket and repeat for the other 3 corners. Now when you move the tub around notice how the balls pivot in their sockets like they are supposed to. When they were dry and rusty they wouldn't move enough to allow the tub to twist like it should so it slammed around.  Now, shake your head in disgust that after only 2 years there is so much rust that you wonder if it will make it another year before falling apart, close the lid, and try another load.  That totally solved my off-balance problem where even a single handkerchief would give the UL error. It is still a finicky machine, but at least once again works like it did when new.
