Washing but stops in the middle on the wash cycle and then won't continue...did have an overload issue the day before.
I had an unbalanced load the other day. After that the washer will start fine. But it stops in the middle on the wash cycle and won't go anywhere else.. I looked for a rreset button like suggested in other places here but have not found one. I'm not sure what model mine is either because it was bought years ago at a second hand store. Any suggestions? It aggitates the clothes just "freezes" up. Thanks for any help!

uL is displayed when the machine/motor control detects an off-balance load and remains 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 lid is opened, allowing the customer to view and redistribute the load
hum check the belt if applicable, the door switch just in case co incidence plays out here, also may have a bad clutch or motor coupler, or worse case problem ur tranny. are u saying it still washes though? overload should not throw out ur spin cycle but can damage ur clutch and tranny? lest u have a digital electronic board on this machine and they are know to go bonkers. some machines actually have a auto fixit for overload or unbalanced issues.
It means Unbalanced Error, it means the machine cant balance the load during the spin cycle, normally happens if there is too little a load i.e 1 or 2 things or overloaded. It is designed to protect the bearings. If it happens with a normal load try stopping it and re-arranging the load by hand and putting it on a spin only cycle. Hope this helps.
Hello,have to tell you that most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping noise during the spin, the load of cloth may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the cloths, then restart the machine. Repeat these steps if necessary.
The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference. dC code from the Service Manual = Distribute Clothes: The load is unbalanced, preventing high speed spin. Redistribute clothes. Your wash tub is banging around during the spin cycle correct? You can redistribute the wash basket load until the cows come home the issue will only continue to get worse. Maybe start throwing uC error codes to the console display for continuous unbalance error code. Your FAV6800A or FAV9800A has a Clutch malfunction.It can be corrected if you are handy see this DIY fix Clutch Fix. post. If you decide to dive in I will help you through the fix………Rich
Try a different spin cycle on another setting if it still doest work try removeing the clothes and changing it to a normal wash cycle. If no try unplugging it for a minute or 2 and then back in hopefully it resets and if still no movement on the unit at all you may have overloaded it causing the motor to wear prematuraly and burn up. This is very common with overloading.
There has been a noted problem with the Kenmore Oasis and the "Out of Balance" or "Ob" error. If this is what you are experiencing, the problem has been attributed to a couple of things. Not having sufficient amount of clothes in the wash tub during a wash cycle. That is...smaller loads cause a problem when the washer tries to distribute he weight evenly in the spin cycle. Not enough clothes, no balanced weight, you get an Out of Balance indication. The other problem (which tends to be the more common issue) is the control board under the operator console. The manufacturers developed a new software to run on the new and improved control boards that is supposed to correct this problem. Double check your load distribution first (which it seems you already have), then check with the manufacturer to see if there may be a recall on your washer that corrects this problem at no cost to the consumer. I hope this helps you some.
