Question about Kenmore 15864/15862 Top Load Washer
Keep getting ob code, can't figure out why, machine is level?
even with no clothes, still get code after several minutes of trying to complete some type of cycle. Sounds like its trying to level the clothes before a wash or spin cycle.
The OB indicates and out of balance condition has been detected by the motor control.
One thing about the OB error is that the lid must be opened to clear the error and allow the washer to advance to the next part of the cycle. If the lid is not opened to adjust the clothes then the OB error will happen again.
If the OB error was cleared and the OB occurs with an empty load then the motor control has failed.
The drain pump must work. The image below shows how to run a diagnostic test to check the drain pump. Follow the instructions in the image below and check the drain pump operation. If the pump runs and the water does not drain then the sump is clogged. If the pump hums but does not run then the pump needs to be replaced.
