I have this EXACT problem with my Maytag Bravos washer, word for word as the original poster put it. I was very disappointed after reading response #1!!! There is a big difference between a OL code and a UL code and the issue here is definitely an OL code!

Ran the washer with no clothing on it, it filled all the way to the top of the machine, skipped wash and rinse cycles and went right to drain, then produced the OL not UL 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.

SOURCE: Help!! My maytag neptune MAH6700AWW is having trouble.

the fix was simple i just had to lift my drain hose off the floor. it had become disconnected from the back of the washer and was lying on the floor. I didn't realize that by it lying on the floor it didn't provide the proper back pressure to keep the water in while filling the tub. this was the NF error. as for the LE error. i haven't gotten it since i took off my cold water hose connection and ran hot water into it to losen the dirt/rust that was caked into the screen that is located in it. My washer is running like it is brand new again.

Open your control panel.
Disconnect then reconnect your timer wiring harness.
If this does not correct the problem,replace the timer.

SOURCE: Maytag washing machine skips rinse cycle

Don't know how to solve it, but I do know that the Solution #1 is WRONG.

I have a 5 year warranty on my washer, but I hate people coming into my house. Background check or not, people are people.

Any ways, when they do fix my problem I will let you know. It's an electrical problem.

I know our electric meters are running, but all you have to do is put the washer on "SPIN" cycle, and it will spin and the water will come out. Or you can put your washer in RINSE cycle, since it did not actually rinse.

I was standing and I watched my washer fill 3/4 full with water, and the skip to "COMPLETE" all on it's own. It was suppose to fill all the way to FULL.

Thinking though, I have well water, and I have rust in my water, and I noticed that my water is pouring slower into the washer, maybe there is a clog with rust or something I'll have to clean the filter, but any ways, maybe the washers have a timer, and when it's to the time it should be complete, it skips to complete. It does take DOUBLE time for my water to go into the washer. I was standing there for several minutes.

Any ways, I hope that will help. My washer first did that a few months ago, it didn't do it again, I didn't think anything of it, then it did it again last month, and about every 2 or 3 washes, it does it. It's NOT the weight of my clothes! I wash mini loads and it does it.

Whirlpool cabrio model 6300sw1 won't aggitate and gives ol code


It is overload error.
"oL" (Over Load)
Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to fill •
and begin the wash cycle. If the washer is overloaded, it will
drain any water and detergent that was added during the fill.
To correct the overload, remove several items and add
detergent. Close lid and press START.

Also try to download user manual from this site and check page 19.

Maytag washing machine skips rinse cycle


I found this problem with mine intermittently and it was because i had filled the machine too full that it was too heavy to initiate the spin. maybe try a lighter wash?

"OL" error message


I believe that I had this same problem. The machine was skipping the wash cycle. After the water level rose to where you would expect the machine to go into an agitation cycle to wash clothes; it would start a spin cycle and drain the water. In the process of spinning it would stop to display the OL message over and over again as quick as you redistribute the load.

I found the problem to be clothes that got stuck underneath the impeller (round thing at the bottom center of the basket). Somehow I also had clothes get pulled down and got stuck underneath the basket next to the lint filter, these items were shredded to the point that they probably were not causing any issues, none the less they should not have been in there. Even though it was not the problem, I went ahead and took out and cleaned the lint filter since it was within reach.

This machine works a bit different then other machines. The agitation cycle is dependent upon the basket floating up and disengaging from the drive shaft. I guess the clothes that got stuck beneath the impeller did not allow the basket to float high enough to disengage from the drive shaft. Because the basket was still engaged to the drive shaft the drive motor would spin the basket and start a drain cycle rather agitate the load to wash it. The imbalance of the basket caused by the clothes stuck underneath the impeller kicked of the OL error since the basket was spinning at an unacceptable angle. I am not a repair dude but based on my observation of what I did to fix the problem this explanation works for me.

I've attached some pages of a repair manual that I found on-line to illustrate the areas that I am referring to.

Washer will not drain nor spin. Did have a OL IN THE INDICATION WINDOW WHEN PROBLEM FIRST OCCURRED


The OL means that the load was overloaded and shut itself off due to weight.
