Cabrio Washer Error OL

Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Error OL

The Cabrio Washer OL error code stands for overloaded which means the control has recognized that the load in the tub is to much for the machine to handle or there is friction on the drive system not allowing the basket to disengage.  Steps to take to try and remedy the Cabrio Washer Error OL error are listed below.

  1. Make sure you have not overloaded the machine, remove some clothes if necessary.
  2. Number 1 is the most common problem but this error can also be caused by a mechanical issue. If you use liquid HE detergent and not HE powder detergent the shaft the tubs rides up and down on to engage and disengage gets soap scum built up and corrodes and will not allow the tub to move properly. You will have to pull the tub and clean the shaft up and if it’s real bad you will just have to replace the shaft, bearing and seals.
