When machine goes into final spin cycle it gives me a OL code

Getting oL code even after diagnostic check


OL, usually means Over Loaded. It is an error code thrown up by the on board computericon1.png.. generally when TOO much wet weight is in the bowl.

This condition is could be caused by faulty solenoid or solenoids at the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the supply hoses. Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity will indicate a faulty solenoid and the inlet valve assy will need to be replaced.

Try unplugging for 12 hrs before reconnecting
If the problem continues then the controller board is damaged and will need to be replaced.

OL error code


Hi jbrundage1. I believe you have a UL error code on the washer. It means that the sensors in the washer are sensing the unit is unbalanced. When the washer is empty, set it to a spin or rinse and spin setting. Run the washer through the cycle empty, as it will help to remove any excess water in the tub. Also, make sure the washer is level, as it is balanced on springs, and that could be throwing the sensors off. I hope these suggestions prove helpful. Sincerely, Melanie, Maytag Social Media Representative.

The washer stops half way through all cycles and displays "oL" .


Error oL means overload.
If the "oL" error code appears, the washer has been filled with a load that is too large for its capacity, causing it to drain.

*Remove some items from the washer and add more detergent since the previous amount will have drained with the water.
*Close the washer and press the START/PAUSE/Cancel button to remove error displayed and restart the cycle.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:

*Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
*Plug in washer or reconnect power.
*Re-select the cycle and press Start.

NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and the condition above has been checked, call for service.

Hope this helps.. :)

Ol error on oassi elite washer


my washer told ol code ,i know that means over load ,put its told me that even when i put small load

Code ol


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.

Kenmore washer OASIS errror code OL


OL error means the Motor Controller has sensed an Overload.

The oL code means the motor control board is struggling to power the motor up. If it recurs after removing some clothes - usually this means a new motor control.... or worse - a new bearing.

If it were a problem with the tub floating up, the unit would spin instead of nutate.

Bearing failure in this machine is very common.

I suspect the drive shaft and bearing are the problem. The bearing and shaft are part of the outer tub.

The new outer tub with bearing W10128830 cost approximately $197 dollars.

If you can get access to the shaft it may be an Emory cloth will help smooth things down so that you no longer get the OL code.

This is an ambitious do-it-yourself project... as most appliance repairmen don't understand how this machine operates.

When washer spin the machine stop mark the code ol



Sorry I missed the error code oL

oL Machine Paused-Load Wedging….I think that may mean something like the tumblers are jammed up but that’s a guess. I have never seen that error code before. If no one on the forum can help I will give it a try. I need to do some digging in. If I hit a dead end for this error code I will ask on another forum if any Maytag repair folks have knowledge of this error code and it’s cause. We could do some basic troubleshooting if you want to try. If you recycle power on the machine will the machine run a normal cycle?

If you want to dig in and troubleshoot the issue I will try to help. See my last post of how to get into Service Mode. I would suggest reading the Diag codes and see what the machine has logged with past error codes.

Here are links for the Service Manual and parts look up. FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Waiting to hear back from you….Rich
