Hi,

Here is what the manufacture says about OL followed by my comments

Overloaded
oL flashes when the machine/motor control
detects a load size that exceeds the
washer’s capacity OR basket can not
disengage. This may signify:
➔ Load size exceeds washer capacity.
Remove excess laundry, then restart cycle.
➔ Mechanical friction on drive mechanism,
not allowing the basket to disengage.

Phil's thoughts ----->
If you have overloaded it this could happen, but once the too large load is removed and the load canceled and restarted it is fine.

If the OL continues or it was from an overload one of two things has occurred.

The first could be that an article of clothing worked it's way between the basket and tub and is restricting the movement of the basket. To check for this, unload the basket and see if it turns freely around. If you feel or hear a drag it may have something caught. It would need disassembled to remove or repair.

Let me know if you have questions.

Whirlpool cabrio model 6300sw1 won't aggitate and gives ol code


It is overload error.
"oL" (Over Load)
Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to fill •
and begin the wash cycle. If the washer is overloaded, it will
drain any water and detergent that was added during the fill.
To correct the overload, remove several items and add
detergent. Close lid and press START.

Also try to download user manual from this site and check page 19.

My whirlpool cabrio washing machine keeps giving me an F1 ERROR when it goes to the rinse cycle. It will complete the wash after i hit cancel reset and wash. Any ideas?


F1(F68)-Pressure Signal Out-of-Range
I telephoned Whirlpool at 1-800-253-1301. Whirlpool acknowledged the F1 fault and will send a serviceman, free parts and labor, to correct the problem concerning the "famous" F1 fault. This is even for washers out of warranty! This concerns model WTW6600SW2 washers. Be sure to get the authorization code from them so the service person cannot argue about costs.
