Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

Whirlpool WTW6200 Cabrio. We had this washer a little over a year, and have a problem with it getting unbalanced giving either a UL or F1 code, and often dumping water on the floor when this happens. I will also tie sheet in knots so back I have to get them undone for my wife. Any suggestion other than getting a different washer? Thanks

Hi there.

Sorry to hear this. Some washers are notorious for this. I would buy a different brand next time.

Untill something breaks - try loading the machine with a couple of towels when doing sheets - aiming to keep the drum 70% full when loaded.
It's often when there's only 1/2 load that things get unbalanced.

Hope this helps.
Richie.

Ul is displayed what does this mean


UL Stand for unbalanced load
probably the balance rods washer has 4 of them and they work like shocks for the tub and if they go bad than they allow the drum to spin wildly.

Whirlpool Cabrio spins off center and stop with ul code


Ul-Unbalanced Load

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.

Wtw6600 washer has UL code and has trouble agitating and spinning.


The UL code means Unbalanced Load. Open the lid and move your clothes around so they are distributed evenly. Your spin cycle will then work normally.

UL keeps coming on the screen, will spin for 1 or 2 minutes and then UL shows up again

Kenmore Oasis washing machine is giving me a UL code with every wash now. Do I have to call for service or can I fix it myself?


See the following Whirlpool Service Manual for their Cabrio washer which is the same as the Sears Oasis.

You may get an idea of the (UL Unbalanced Load) problem and solutions.

Noisy when trying to spin. display uL instead of time remaining. Stopped, opened lid and redistributed load. Started up again. cycle continued but still displaying uL. Not sure if load still unbalanced?...


REPLACE YOUR SUSPENSION RODS. You can get them at a discount applicance parts store online for about $60. Our washer is about 8 years old and has been getting unbalanced on every load. I replaced the suspension rods tonight and and it solved the problem.

I have a ul error code on my washing machine it is a cabrio top loader


I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
anything to me. The ul error code means unbalanced load. I can suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good trouble shooting and repair information on washing machines and other appliances. I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.
