Kenmore Oasis UL code (even with no clothes.)
« on: August 04, 2010, 03:52:51 PM »
In Manuel it says unbalanced load. I get this code with a empty basket (no clothes). She said it does it every time and every load size. Tested (No Clothes) It starts spinning then outer tub starts banging the side of washer and shuts off UL code. I did get it to go through spin 1 time with clothes. I took agitator out and checked tub bolts they are tight. Tub floats and seems level.Checked suspension springs all OK. Took cover off motor checked all nuts and bolts all tight. It washes fine and drains and spins, just wont hit high spin without getting out of balance. No other error codes on it. Not sure where to go from here. Anyone had this problem before?

Maybe a small item of clothing is in between tubs throwing the washer out of balance in the high spin mode.

Keep us posted with what you find.  From what you have said, it seems like you have covered everything i would have looked at.  I would call tech-line. maybe there is a bulletin or something.

Sometimes I hit a dude on tech that don't quite get it, I hang up an call again, usually confirms a, he said she said issue which I can't stand.  Call backs drive me nuts that are caused by a guess from tech line.

You will end up replacing the tub to solve this issue. They had problems with the bases on them and the cam that is supposed to ride up and down on the shaft. You  mentioned the tub floats, but does it settle down as the water drains?  Watch with the main top up and see what happens.

I am not a service tech but I do have some pretty decent mechanical skills. I have a similar model 110.27032602, and I was experiencing the same problems with the UL code with an empty washer as well.

When I removed the basket I noticed that there was water trapped inside the hollow plastic rings on the bottom and top of the basket. I drilled a few small holes, drained the water and plugged them back.

Ran it through a quick drain and spin cycle , and the washer seems to work just fine now. Perhaps this could be the same issue you are having.

Could it be that simple. Faulty balance rings?

I see where the weights on the bottom of these machines have been changed

Crosley, Maytag and Whirlpool Top Load Washers - Design Change/ Elimination of Counter Weight Model Numbers: CAW12444XW, MVWX600XW1, MVWX500XW1, MVWX500XL1, MVWX550XW1, MVWX600XL1, MVWX700XW1, MVWX700XL1, MVWC400XW2, WTW5500XW2, WTW5500XL2, WTW5550XW2, WTW5600XW2, WTW5640XW2, WTW5700XW2, WTW5700XL2, WTW5610XW2, WTW4950X

2 small centering springs have been added to stabilize and the counterweight gets tossed.

UL code even empty could be bad suspension rods. I have run into this many times and that was the fix.
