hi,

This error code indicates that an unbalanced load is detected.

if the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while attempting to balance the load at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press Start/Pause.


If the washer is not level, the washer may be more sensitive to unbalanced loads. The washer must be level from side to side and from front to back. The front and rear feet must be in firm contact with the floor. Make sure the locknuts are tightened.

If Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work
Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
Re-select the cycle and press Start/Pause.

    This machine being level is VERY important. It is also not easy to level due to the forward sloping contour of the top of the machine. You must place your level on the side of the machine where the top meets the cabinet to get your front-to-back reading. You can get your side-to-side reading on top. If it is not correct, it will not work properly...

When washer gets to 12 minutes it shuts down and flashes ul


Tammy: According to Advantagesupplyfl.com: "uL is displayed when the machine/motor control detects an off-balance load, and is steady on while the washer runs a mini-cycle to rebalance the load.
Display clears if mini-cycle successfully rebalanced the load.
If the mini-cycle is unsuccessful, uL will flash until the door lid is opened, allowing the customer to view and redistribute
the load."

UL error code on frigidaire dishwasher


Thank you for your inquiry, Elizabeth!

I see that your Frigidaire dishwasher is displaying an error code of "UL" and you would like to know what it means. A "UL" error code means that your dishwasher is in relay test mode. You should be able to clear out the error code by pressing cancel and holding down the hi-temp button. If that does not clear out your error code I would suggest performing a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

UL bravo error code


Unbalanced load? Don't over stuff the washer. The load sensing moves the drum back and forth at the start. If it can't balance the load it will err.

UL light keeps coming on stops spinning


The uL error code is displayed when the electronic control detects an off balance load. This can be caused by overloading, bad bearings in the tub, something between the tub and basket, or an issue with the electronics.

You can try to clear the Error Codes;
  • Unplug the washer for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Disconnect the U.I. (touch pad).
  • Plug the washer back in for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Unplug the washer.
  • Plug the U.I. back in and then plug the washer back in. Codes should then be cleared.
Most of the time if no mechanical faults can be found the CCU (Central Control Unit) needs to be replaced. I would recommend running the diagnostic cycle first (see image below).
This is a very labor intensive do-it-yourself project, it involves extensive tear down of the washer. If you are not already sure you can perform these checks safely and competently, refer this work to a qualified professional. Working with live electrical current can be very hazardous and possibly deadly. Testing voltage output requires working with electrical current. Do not attempt these measurements without the proper tools and safeguards. First you will need to see if the washer gives that "UL" error while running the washer empty. Start a load with nothing in the washer. If the "UL" error comes up there is a mechanical issue or bad CCU. If the "UL" error does not come up there is most likely a loading issue. A common problem that causes a "UL" error is mechanical friction. I.e. something keeping the basket from moving as designed. You will need to remove the basket from the tub. I have included an illustrated set of instructions (See below). Check between the basket and tub for foreign objects such as socks or other small laundry articles.

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.
