I fixed the problem "OL" before wash or rinse cycle. I noticed if I
raised the tub manually after a resonable amount of water was in
the tub the wash/rinse cycle would start. The water level sensor
was leaking air, as the tub fills slowly it looses air pressure and
misreads how much water to put into tub. When too much water is in
the tub the OL error happens. The clear air line comes up at the
outlet hose tells the control panel how much water is in tank so be
sure to remove the hose while TUB IS EMPTY. ( i made mistake of
removing hose with full tank and the washer thought it was empty
and started spinning water out into floor. So, with empty tub I
removed top panel, then pulled clear air line from control panel. I
put a dab of silicon around the tip the hose came off ( don't get
into the air hole!) , replace hose and wait for silicon to set and
done. I figured it out by my I started self and didn't have to call
a repair man. Actually I am a computer repair man in nashville -

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. oL flashes when the machine/motor control detects a load size that exceeds the washer’s capacity. Open the door lids to clear display, remove excess laundry, then restart the cycle. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

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.

Cabrio washer error code OL after about 10 mins.


The ol error can be caused by many problems, first let's address the over filling of the water, there is a plastic tube that runs from your control to the outer tub. This tube provides the pressure to the sensor in the control board to control the water level in the tub of the washer. If this line has a pin hole or is clogged, this could effect the water level. If your tube is ok then the control board is bad.
the ol error could be any of the following:
cloths under the tub,
bad bearings
basket hub
stater motor
rps sensor
control board

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!

Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SB2 won't spin or agitate. We bought it used and they swore it worked. It goes from 45min and drops down to 3mins. It never completes it's load. And after it beeps with a OL on


Hi.

Most spin troubles are caused by drain or pressure switch problems, but it does not look like that is your case. Check for blockage in drain system and clean the hose connected to pressure switch. As said I do not think that this is the problem but the drain system must be checked as part of troubleshooting.

OL code in fact is not related to drain problems, but to motor and mechanical problem. OL is returned when the washer is overloaded and the motor cannot turn the basket properly.

The first step to diagnose the problem is removing the basket and looking for problems under the basket (e.g. broken part or clothes stuck under the tub). Here a document showing how to.

If parts under the basket are OK the next step will consist in testing the motor. The motor can be tested reading impedance at its phase terminal and across the stator winding. The Cabrio's motor should read about 30/32 Ohms across its phase contacts.

If the motor and the rest are OK the problem is usually the RPS sensor that detects the rotational speed of the motor.

Regards.

My Whirlpool Cabrio top loading washing machine stops with an error OL . nothing wrong with the loading, this is only a small whash. Where is located this sensor for overload?


The sensing is done by measuring the motor amp draw. If the motor amp draw is high that is an indication of a heavy loaded washer which could cause the motor to overheat OR too much soap being used, OR the wrong soap being used, OR something between tubs. If you is getting an OL and the clothes is not the problem then you may have an item lodged between the tubs. You must remove the inner tub and get that thang outta there. Cabrio service manual

Hi

Error OL means overload. oL flashes when the machine/motor control detects a load size that exceeds the washer's capacity. To clear the error open the door lid and restart the cycle by removing excess laundry. If error doesn't clears then unplug the washer for 5-10 minutes and check. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

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.
