SOURCE: My Whirlpool keeps flashing and
UL means the load is unbalance. Open the lid and rearrange the clothes. If the problem continues, then the machine may have a problem caused by rust. If the unit still under warranty, contact the manufacturer for assistance on repairs.
If the appliance is out of warranty and you are a handyman (That works with safety), you may try a repair as indicated by a FixYa Tech:
"open the top of the machine (press in with a flat putty knife about 3" in on the front on each side while lifting up as there are 2- 1" wide catches). Once both sides are unlatched, raise the lid then slightly lift the rear of the lid so that it fits into the curved part at the top of the hinges then open all the way - tape the lid to the top so it doesn't flap about and scotch the lid to keep it from falling back down on you. Now, look around - see all that rust? The rust has fallen into and gotten underneath one or more of the 4 white plastic suspension "ball joints" which have probably totally dried out by now from their factory grease because of the water, bleach, and rust particles. Having someone help you, simply lift up on one of the 4 corner suspension rods - gravity and weight is all that holds them down. The white ball will lift out of the socket and still be attached to the rod. Clean out the rust, lightly sand the "socket" with emery cloth, then slop in a fingerful of grease. I used automotive wheel bearing grease with graphite in it. Also scrub off all embedded rust on the white plastic ball. Lower that corner back into the newly cleaned and greased socket and repeat for the other 3 corners. Now when you move the tub around notice how the balls pivot in their sockets like they are supposed to. When they were dry and rusty they wouldn't move enough to allow the tub to twist like it should so it slammed around. Now, shake your head in disgust that after only 2 years there is so much rust that you wonder if it will make it another year before falling apart, close the lid, and try another load."

Redistribute the load to make sure it is balanced or run a spin cycle without load then see how the cycle works. The next thing to check are the suspension rods. Those are the rods that connect to the four white ball joints and the tub. The rods and springs should be intact and the assembly must be properly attached to the tub.

if it went thru the mini-cycle to redistribute the lad of clothes and it continues to flash uL then open the lid and manually redistribute the load,if this doesn't correct the problem,then try unplugging the unit for 15 minutes to re-set the ecu control unit and re-plug in and retry it
