Remove the cap atop the agitator, then take the nut off there get the agitator and tub out; see if something is in between tubs. Items jammed between tubs can cause the control to suspect errors.

It is overload error.
"oL" (Over Load)

Washer stops and shows oL over load


The "oL" error code in the Cabrio and Bravo washers means the motor is sensing an overload ("oL") condition. While this could indicate a problem with the motor, it usually doesn't. Most of the time, you'll see this error code when one of two things is going on:

1) There's a piece of clothing stuck between the inner basket and outer tub.

2) The tub is not floating freely, usually because it's seized to the drive shaft by rust and crudus; FYI: this condition is almost always caused by using non-HE detergent in this washer. Also, be aware that, if this is the case, it can be very difficult to remove the basket from a badly corroded drive shaft, could even be a two-man job.

Here is a video to help you get into the machine.

Keep me posted!

2007 Cabrio does not agitate, flashes oL code even when empty


The OL error code indicates that the washer is overloaded. If the washer is not overloaded, this would indicate either a drag on the drive system or the control board is failing. Be sure nothing is on the floor under the washer that could be causing a problem. Raise the lid & manually spin the basket, it should spin freely. If not, you may have an item stuck between the spin basket and the washer tub.

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.. :)

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.

It gets through to the 40 minute part of a cycle and shuts off and unlockes door and has ol code


This kind of problem is usually when the final spin is overloaded and the overload sensor stops the spinning. But, this can also happen during the spinning at end of wash cycle. Does this shut-down occur every time? If not, then it is your load that is too much. If it happens every time, then it is most likely the overload sensor. The electronic timer could be the problem (they are more flukey than the mechanical timers) but usually you will not see OL if the timer itself is at fault. Good luck, Macgivor.
