2 days ago my Kenmore Oasis HE Elite got clogged with sand, and of course it wouldn't work. I've read some of the solutions for this problem posted on the website and i started to work on it. Both pumps were clogged with sand. I took off the pumps from under the washer and i cleaned all the sand there was, then i assemble everything like it was originally. My problem is that now every time i start a cycle, no matter which one is, after 15-20 minutes it stops by itself and on the display it says "Ol" which i think it means Over Load. The funny thing is that it says Over Load also if the washer is completely empty. I don't know what the problem is and neither what to do. I hope you can help me.

Press and hold the "Start" button to restart the dryer cycle if the "PF" (power failure) error code appears. This code often appears when a cycle is interrupted before it completes. You may also check the breaker or household fuse, and ensure the machine has not come unplugged.
Since the motor turns regadless of the direction it turns itself is good and theirfore the problem with your washer i believe is going to be the control board,it is what tells the motor what direction and what speed to turn.
you may not be leaking out the bottom. Your stand pipe may be clogged. If the stand pipe has a slight clog in it, the stand pipe will over flow, and the water "looks" as if its leaking from the bottom... These pump faster than your old machine, so the pipe will back up faster... hope that helps
if the clothes are warm after the cycle then you need to make sure the vent to the outside of the house is not plugged if they are not warm then it is in the heating circuit of the dryer wether it be the element or a fuse will have to be tested. to dry clothes it takes heat and air flow if you dont have one of the two they will not dry correctly
