Unbalanced load. Common problem when washing fitted sheets. The Appliance Assistant wrote an outstanding article about the problems associated with these machines and the solution! HERE

    In case you didn't want to read the whole article:
    Balance Tip: Fitted sheets can sometimes turn into a large heavy ball as they collect other items inside themselves during the wash cycle; this ball is nearly impossible to balance at 1000 RPM. Solution…don’t wash fitted sheets with heavy items like towels or blankets, and stay close while the cycle is active so you can stop the cycle and readjust the load if necessary. As a general rule towels should only be washed with other towels and heavy items that can be properly balanced. If you wash a bunch of shirts with on big towel the load will go off balance almost every time.

What does the error code UL mean?


UL means UnLevel. To fix , open door of washer, and redistribute the clothing/laundry in the machine, and press start. It should start spinning again. Sometimes , if you have a overly heavy load of laundry above will not work. What I have done is, put my weight on the machine (upper body laying on the top) until the machine has extracted enough water so the machine will be balanced.

My WTW7600XWO washer stops with 11 minutes left to go and UL comes on


The UL code means that the load is unbalanced. With the Cabrio washers, frequently this is due to the failure of the suspension rods that hold the tub. To check this, use a putty knife to separate the clips that hold the top of the washer at the front of the unit. Then lift up the top. Check the suspension rods and balls. Also check the wiring at the motor and the control panel, just to rule out any electrical cause for the UL error. You probably only need to replace the suspension spring kit, W10247710, is available from several sources, including: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-suspension-spring-kit-w10247710-ap4411122.html . There are videos showing the the replacement procedure available online.

I hope this helps.

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.

Hello,
The UL code means a unbalanced load,sometimes it can as easy as leveling the washer,or a odd load such a towels all being on one side of tub and thinner less water retaining sheets being on the other side.

The Washing Machine Is washing but not spinning and The electrical panel on the front of the machine is saying UL .


UL is a code for the load being unbalanced. If the load is evenly distributed, 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 spring up. Look for rust around the suspension points at the top of the cabinet. The rust, if present, has likely 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. Automotive wheel bearing grease with graphite in it works well, but any will work. 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 and became off balanced. This should take care of the unbalance code.

UL Code


Solved the unbalanced problem - 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.  That totally solved my off-balance problem where even a single handkerchief would give the UL error. It is still a finicky machine, but at least once again works like it did when new.
