Hello my name is***** am here to help answer your question. A OL error is a motor error meaning the motor is working too hard. The most common causes of a OL error are a stuck tub or something is stuck between the tubs. Also make sure the washer is completely level on a solid floor. Is the washer noisy on spin? This would indicate a bad bearings which could cause the error. Try to lift the inner tub up and down slightly to make sure it is not stuck. Make sure the bolt on the center rotor(model 1 type) or the pulley nut (model 2 type) is tight. I would need your complete model number directly from the washer to tell you how to remove the inner tub and raise the top to see if something is stuck. There are 2 different types so they come apart 2 different ways. I can give you further information one I get the model number.

My washer is new and very quiet. The tub is free. I just need the code reset. You did nothing to help me. Please refund my 28.00. I told the bank but I have to wait until next week.
