Expert:  AppTech8579 replied 3 months ago.

When does the code appear? During spin?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
UL which i presume is unbalanced load
Expert:  AppTech8579 replied 3 months ago.

An item stuck between the spin basket and the outer tub of the washer could be causing this problem. With the washer empty and turned off, see if the spin basket will rotate freely by hand. Is there resistance?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
no resistance but the tub moves side to side freely
Expert:  AppTech8579 replied 3 months ago.

Okay, then you will need to replace your RPS sensor below the tub mounted to the motor because it's reading incorrectly.
