It appears your load balance sensor has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Kenmore elite 110.2706 unbalanced load problems


I have the same problem with my washer though it is a Maytag. the part that grips the drum to spin it is stripping, (and not properly grabbing). Repair man said to just get a new but I'm sure if you find a dedicated enough repairman he may be able to replace that part. The repairman said to replace mine because it was over 8 years old.

What does the message ul mean?


Hello,
The UL code means a unbalanced load,sometimes it can as easy as leveling the washer,or a odd load such a towels all being on one side of tub and thinner less water retaining sheets being on the other side.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis washer unbalanced signal seems to be very sensitive. Only after several tries of readjusting the load to get it really even that the washer will spin without stopping. I made sure...


If the washer throws an UL error code with out any clothes in the washer then the issue must be concerned with the mechanical alignment inside the machine or a bad CCU.

The most common problem which can cause this is some sort of mechanical hinderance which does not allow the basket to move freely.

The suspension system which holds the basket in its place might be faulty and causing the unbalancing. In this model i think there are plastic ring at the bottom of the basket . Even if they are worn out or moved out of position it may cause the UL error code you are facing

Im getting a uL message on my spin cycle and I dont know why.


The "uL" message stands for "unbalanced load." Open the lid to the washer and redistribute the load if the "uL" display appears on the appliance.Redistributing the load should correct any imbalances in the washer and allow the washer to turn freely. Close the lid and press "Start" to restart the washer.

In the Spin cycle, after 9 minuts, it will stop with a "UL".


"UL" means "Unbalanced Load" - make sure the washer isn't overloaded first or if you are doing rugs, blankets, or lots of jeans, split the load. You can also try running an empty or light load and see how the machine behaves.

If you still have the problem, you may have some issues with the drum bumpers, etc., but try the easy things first.

My washer machine never finish the spin. Always says UL. This never happen before


UL - unbalanced load. Either there is a problem with the suspension or the load is too large.

UL = uneven load.

Re-distribute clothes and re-try.

If still no-go... the load balance sensor is likely to blame.
