Customer Question

Hi I was washing one(1) blanket(king size), not a comforter, in my Cabrio Top Load washer, and the UL signal came on with 13 minutes left in the cycle. I tried shifting the blanket, but cycle would not continue. It also kept pouring in water and then draining the same water, never would advance to the spin cycle.
I had used the "bulky item" setting; now I have a heavy, saturarted blanket. How can I get the machine to spin out the water from the item?

Secondly, I do not know your skill level so please try and let me know if I am going beyond your knowledge or comfort zone thanks!

That is an unbalanced load code. If the item is too large or too heavy it may not balance and it will not spin. You can try again to shift the item around or even add something to try and balance it out, otherwise you may have to remove it completely from the unit and try another load to see if there is an issue with the machine or just that item.
