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.

The tub continues to go off balance in spin cycle. Starts out smooth then starts to wobble terribly til the UL shows and shuts down. Support rods are good


There is a little device inside the washer that allows the agitator to spin independent of the drum. If this gets stuck, the washer will try to spin the whole drum instead of just the agitator. This will cause the washer to think the load is too large or out of balance, causing the error code. On some Whirlpools this device is just a washer.

Hello Tabatha,
I see that you are having trouble with your washer portion agitating and spinning out. I suggest to give your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it switching the circuit breaker it is attached to, off for 3-5 minutes. Once the 3-5 minutes has passed, switch the circuit breaker back on. Turn the washer on. If you are still having trouble with it not agitating or spinning out, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician to come and diagnose the washer, to see why it will not agitate or spin.

-Best Regards-

Kenmore Elite Oasis washer does not lock


First, OL/UL stands for "Overload", so in other words, the washer things the tub is too hard to move because it's overloaded and the motor is struggling or the unit is way out of balance causing the washer to struggle. The most common problem is a nut below the inner tub that needs to "float". Floating is when the tub fills up with water to a certain level the inner basket will rise about 1 inch from the center agitator. What this does is disengage the basket from the motor so that the agitator can rotate independently from the basket. If the basket does not float then when it tries to agitate the whole basket will turn back and forth at the same speed as the agitator and this will cause the OL/UL error code.

Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer won't aggitate


My Whirlpool WTW6600 had the same problem. The tub no longer floated up and down on the center shaft, so it only spun, not agitated. You must remove the tub (with some effort) and lightly sand / clean the center shaft. Lube it lightly with wheel bearing grease so that after it is reassembled, you can pull the tub upward and feel about 1/2" movement. This will enable the proper gear assembly to engage. It can spin when it rests at the bottom of its travel, but once you fill the tub, it floats, moving upward, and engaging the agitation gear. Good Luck!

I have a cabrio wtw6600 that makes a clicking or grinding noise when agitating. It only makes it when the basket spins to the left and in silent when it spins to the right. The spin cycle is the normal...


This is usuallty caused by the hub assembly. You will need to remove the agitator and the hub assembly is located under it. This is very inexpensive $10 and easy to fix. Here is your part and a link to diagrams and illustrations AP3892170

Ul code about 10 to 15 seconds into spin cycle machine is level code comes up even if i run it empty


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. 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. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee
