Possible Solutions

Your washer is off balance or the load is unbalanced

If uL (unbalanced load) appears in display, the load is out of balance. The washer is running a load-balance correction routine. Allow the washer to continue.

If the dial is flashing and the washer has stopped, redistribute the load, close the lid, and press START/PAUSE. 

You may also experience some vibration during spinning or the washer has stopped with the dial flashing. Load items in loose heaps evenly around the washplate.Verify that the machine is level.

Adding wet items to washer or adding more water to basket could unbalance washer.

Avoid washing single items. Balance a single item such as a rug or jeans jacket with a few extra items, such as towels.

If the dial is flashing, redistribute the load, close the lid, and press START/PAUSE.

Use Bulky/Sheets Deep Water Wash cycle for oversized, nonabsorbent items such as comforters or poly-filled jackets. Other items are not appropriate for Bulky/Sheets cycle. See “Cycle Guide”in your Use and Care manual for more information on loading.
