Question about Haier Washing Machines

2 Answers

What's causing a Haier HLP24E mini washer to keep throwing a UL unbalanced load error code right before spin cycle?

I watched the washer go through a complete wash cycle. Everything looks fine until it gets ready to do a spin cycle. the water drains out okay. But then it beeps and displays UL, even without anything in it. The clutch pawl retracts, and then reengages the ratchet. The machine then sits there doing nothing for a few minutes before throwing the UL error code. Any ideas on what the problem is and how to fix it?

    Did you ever figure this out?

  • Anonymous Jan 01, 2019

    Exactly same problem happened to me after unbalanced spin and UL code. Reasoned that the tub hit something inside. Finally figured out what was wrong. Open back panel (6 screws), and find a grey metal bar at right/upper corner (hidden, get a flash light). When the bar gets hit by an unbalanced tub, it switches off spinning. Move the bar forward and reverse, and you can hear click sound. The bar has to keep press the tiny button (you don't need to disassemble the washer to look at the button, I did it). Fundamental solution would be changing the torsion spring linked to the metal bar. After you hear click sound, give it a try if it fixes the problem. Good luck.

Take the 4 screws out of the top section, lift up the whole top. You will see a bar. You must lift the top so the bar raises above the drum. Take the screws out of the plastic cover and check the bar .it has 2 round ends that rest in two holes. If it came out of one simply place it back in the hole. You will hear it click when pressing it. Put back together. Problem solved.

SOURCE: 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.

take the lid off attached to the inlet valve to the dispenserr you will see a little white mechanisim in line with them. this is called your flowmeter take it off and blow through it is should sound like a cazoo. put it back on and try to do a wash cycle. if this doesn't help you need a new flowmeter. also if you take the kick panel off you will find the tech sheet to help you diagnose this problem.

UL bravo error code


Unbalanced load? Don't over stuff the washer. The load sensing moves the drum back and forth at the start. If it can't balance the load it will err.

OL error code


Hi jbrundage1. I believe you have a UL error code on the washer. It means that the sensors in the washer are sensing the unit is unbalanced. When the washer is empty, set it to a spin or rinse and spin setting. Run the washer through the cycle empty, as it will help to remove any excess water in the tub. Also, make sure the washer is level, as it is balanced on springs, and that could be throwing the sensors off. I hope these suggestions prove helpful. Sincerely, Melanie, Maytag Social Media Representative.

UL is unbalance load. uL is 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. Page 57 shows the suspension
rod removal to get the tub out. These rods (4) hold the tub in place. Sorry I do not have an oasis manual but this Bravos manual will give you an Idea. One of those rods could be worn to the point it is throwing the the whole tub off. If a rod is broken then the tub could be pressing against the base and binding the motor, causing that noise. You gonna have to check and see.

If the washer throws an UL error code with out any clothes in the washer then the issue must be concerned with the mechanical alignment inside the machine or a bad CCU.

The most common problem which can cause this is some sort of mechanical hinderance which does not allow the basket to move freely.

The suspension system which holds the basket in its place might be faulty and causing the unbalancing. In this model i think there are plastic ring at the bottom of the basket . Even if they are worn out or moved out of position it may cause the UL error code you are facing
