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.

first, run a rinse,drain & spin cycle. after it finishes filling, shut the water supply (taps) off. If water enters the washer after the drain, it has to be sifoning back in from the DRAIN hose. Check to see if the drain hose is not going up above the washer more than a few inches

Kicking out water during wash cycle - spin instead of agitation


Hi,
Try these

  1. Check the drain hose, it should be at least as high as the top of the wash tub, about 38 inches.
  2. The drain hose must sit loosely in the house drain. Do not seal the air gap around the drain hose or a siphon will occur.
  3. Check the drain control lever
  4. Test the drain control coils
  5. Check the cam bar
pls rate my suggestion..

Safety switch is not opening. When you leave lid up you are negating the safety switch which is activated by the door. Easy fix.
