    The machine still shows UL when it spins without any load. The washer is 2yrs. old and I haven't had any other problems at all.

The suspension system which holds teh basket in its place might be faultya nd causing the unbalancing. In this model i think there are plastic ring at the bottom of the basket .even if tehy are worn out or moved out of position it may cause the UL error code you are facing.

    If the washer throws an UL error code with out any clothes in the washer then the issue must be concerned with the mechanical alignment inside the machine or a bad CCU.

    The most common problem which can cause this is some sort of mechanical hinderance which does not allow the basket to move freely.

    Thanks for your response!!

    If the unit gets out of balance easily and all 4 of the suspension
    rods are attached, you'd want to replace the RPS sensor mounted to the
    top of the motor below the tub. The RPS sensor is the part that tells
    the control board out distribute the clothes and spin the tub so that it
    doesn't get out of balance easily. If it's reading incorrectly it
    will cause almost every cycle to go out of balance very easily.

    Rotor Position Sensor or "Hall sensor" It's not as easy to replace as
    the control board, but it isn't too hard. Just unplug the washer and
    tip the machine backwards. Remove the large center nut on the bottom of
    the washer tub directly in the middle. Pull the rotor case off. Then
    you can remove the bolts around the center of the motor and the motor
    will pull down and off so that you can pull the RPS sensor off the top
    to replace it.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Why does it always become unbalanced in spin cycle?


how confident are you to get inside it? Check the balance springs and shock absorbers.

Normally it is two simple things.

First the machine must be level front to back and left to right. Also all 4 feet must be in equal contact with the floor.

Make sure you load the washer evenly with clothes. Mix large and small items so when the spin starts the clothes even out. Never wash just one large item that is very absorbent, like one bathrobe or one blanket..

Ul keeps coming up i saw solutions about popping off cap but my carbrio doesnt have a cap


Hello,

The UL means UNBALANCED LOAD
The washer tries to balance the load automatically as soon as it has detected its off balance and the tub is wobbling. IF you find that the load isnt unbalanced and it keeps coming up(try a load without any clothing) the control board would need to be replaced.
Of course though try seeing if the legs need to be adjusted to level the washer.

Good luck,i hope i have helped you to undestand what is wrong with your washer,

Will not balance the load. shows a unbalanced load error at every spin cycle. will only work with no clothes in


Tony see this post Clutch Fix

I feel the issue is a Clutch issue if the wash tub is banging around in Spin Cycle and errors out with thr UC unbalance code.

If you decide to dive in I will point you to another forum where I can help you.

My washing machine is ALWAYS off balance. I have tried adjusting the nobs on the bottom several times...a level always reads the machine is level.


Hello, the possible cause is if there is a thumping noise during spin cycle, the loads of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced, and what you will need do is to open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then restart it, repeat these steps if necessary.
Thanks

Washer runs quietly steadily except during spin cycle, when it tries to walk out the door. Have leveled the machine,even strengthened and leveled the floor.


Does it always do this or does it only happen when the load is unbalanced? In other words once this starts to happen can you lift the lid and rearrange the clothes within to balance the load and try again.

Washer unbalanced apparently


There is supposed to be a load balance sensor which detects out of balance loads then reverses the motor to re-balance and try again. If your washer is chunking along out of balance, perhaps the sensor is not operating properly. I have heard rumors of bad electronics with The Axxis.

Unbalanced loads


There has been a noted problem with the Kenmore Oasis and the "Out of Balance" or "Ob" error. If this is what you are experiencing, the problem has been attributed to a couple of things. Not having sufficient amount of clothes in the wash tub during a wash cycle. That is...smaller loads cause a problem when the washer tries to distribute he weight evenly in the spin cycle. Not enough clothes, no balanced weight, you get an Out of Balance indication. The other problem (which tends to be the more common issue) is the control board under the operator console. The manufacturers developed a new software to run on the new and improved control boards that is supposed to correct this problem. Double check your load distribution first (which it seems you already have), then check with the manufacturer to see if there may be a recall on your washer that corrects this problem at no cost to the consumer. I hope this helps you some.
