Hello,

what OL indicate means an error code that there have been an over flow of water from the drum over to the panel or the wire that suppl power to the screen .

what you will have to do to fix up this problem from the screen is to unscrew the screws with screw driver care then trace the wire ,that is the power supply down to the panel and also to the screen clean up all forms of liquid around the wires and also the panel carefully . then couple it back with care to is position with this the problem is solve.

thank you.

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.

Washer stops and shows oL over load


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.

Here is a video to help you get into the machine.

Keep me posted!

Why does my washer keep saying OL?


Hi

Error OL means that the washer has sensed an overload (OL) condition. It can also be a false error code appearing due to faulty lid switch. Sometimes this error code appears when lid is not closed/opened properly. You can check the lid switch for any disconnections, if the connection to lid switch is fine then use a multimeter to check the continuity of the lid switch. If the lid switch is fine then there is a piece of clothing stuck between inner basket and the outer tub. Disconnect the washer from the power outlet and then try moving the drum with your hand and check if it turns freely or is offering any resistance. If it is not moving freely then it is due to rusted drive shaft or motor. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

Washer stops and blinks OL even with just a few items


HI. OL flashes when the machine/motor control detects a load size that exceeds the washer’s capacity.Open the door lid to clear your display and remove the excess laundry, then restart the cycle. Be sure to not overfill the unit or this will occur once again. Overloading the unit will damage the motor.

Display shows oL - Top-load washer


That oL is overload. You need to remove some clothes. On this model the motor can sense to much weight in the washer. If it does it without any clothes in there check for something jammed between the tubs.

Kenmore Elite 110 does not spin/agitate/drain


OL error means the Motor Controller has sensed an Overload.

The oL code means the motor control board is struggling to power the motor up. If it recurs after removing some clothes - usually this means a new motor control.... or worse - a new bearing.

If it were a problem with the tub floating up, the unit would spin instead of nutate.

Bearing failure in this machine is very common.

I suspect the drive shaft and bearing are the problem. The bearing and shaft are part of the outer tub.

The new outer tub with bearing W10128830 cost approximately $197 dollars.

If you can get access to the shaft it may be an Emory cloth will help smooth things down so that you no longer get the OL code.

This is an ambitious do-it-yourself project... as most appliance repairmen don't understand how this machine operates.
