Question about Maytag Bravos MTW6600T Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Can I pack insulation around the outer tub of a Maytag Bravos to prevent it from going UL (unbalanced load)? I already replaced the outer tub, leveled the machine and locked the legs. Still goes UL a lot.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
NO!
(If you haven't already, try my guidance notes on leveling, please!)

I mostly answer front load problems but ' out of balance' is a common problem with both!
So- I don't know your particular machine but the initial cure is the same.
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

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.

MTW6600TB1 code U L


Hello. The UL code means the washer is unbalanced. Try taking out clothing around the middle and readjusting to the edges. That should help take off the code. I hope these suggestions prove helpful. Sincerely, Melanie, Maytag Social Media Representative.

My Maytag Washer quiet seriouse keeps showing UL the last 11min of the spin cycle and I don't kno wats wrong


Hi

UL fault code indicates 'unbalanced load' which means the unbalance switch or control board may be faulty.

Sometimes it just means you have heavy items such as large towels or curtains in the wash but if it persists you will need to get it looked at.

Unbalance when spinning


Unauthorized water gets into the tub ring. Sloshes about and cause unbalanced load even if nothing is in the washer. Rich mans solution: replace inner tub. poor mans solution: drill holes, drain water.
