Whirlpool WTW6500W Washer - Answered Questions & Fixed issues
Washer goes into OL or UL after 14 to 16 minutes in any wash cycle. Change cycle to drain & spin and it will drain water and spin clothes pre dry clothes for dryer
This is a tough one as so many things can trigger the OL overload first I would raise the top panel check the 4 suspension rods one each corner make not bent that the spring still attached at bottom also up top where rods hook into plastic cup that there is no rust so the plastic inserts can move freely if all is good remove basket from tub making sure nothing in between pretty common with the machine empty grab the basket and see if you can raise it about an inch and it falls back into place it should this is the hub that engages, a cracked basket ring that has lost its fluids with do this very rare with an empty machine spin the basket you should her what sounds like water sloshing around this is the fluid in the basket ring have seen them loose normally you get a clicking sound now the tech sheet does not offer any help with unbalanced load or over load but to say redistribute load there are no sensors on the machine to create these codes the control senses drag on the motor which causes this to flash after checking everything I mentioned the factory would recommend changing the RPS sensor first from there the rotor and stator then the control usually when these parts are suspect you would get an F47 error code sorry I cant pinpoint the problem but usually these codes appear in the spin cycle not wash.

My laundry doesn,t work. shows dl - what this mean
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'dl' stands for Door Lock, meaning that either the lock mechanism itself is malfunctioning or the door lock sensor is.
I don't know if there is any lock adjustment which can be made on your particular machine or whether replacement of the offending item is the order of the day ;-0(
Whichever, it means a service engineer call. Sorry.
