My kenmore elite washer only works on the spin cycle. The light on the display do not work for the type of wash cycle you wandt to select. Nothing happens when tehy are pushed it only seems to work on the spin cycle. I can not change the water tempeture setting either it is always on cold/cold. I have tried unpluging the machine and replugging it to try to reset it.

UL in digital display coming on during wash cycle. When washer is spinning during wash cycle it is very loud and the washer moves. We have had it repaired a couple of times. It will work for several...

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. ULis 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

I have to pause and restart then it will stop washing again after a few minutes and flash the same codes again. I reset again and then it stops with 1 minute left and will not drain.

Machine will not switch to drain and spin cycle

If you take the front off in the lower right you will find a pump motor that controls the drain flow. This may defective. Use a shop vac to empty the water in washer if needs be. But remove and test this pump.

Kenmore Elite H3 control buttons - some work some don't

The diagnostic function will not help you if your user interface board (UIB) is acting up because to put into diagnostic you have to select drain spin, then the no spin option, and hit the prewash button 4 times.

It sounds like your UIB is the problem.
