Question and Answers

Q:

What does "OL" error code mean and how to fix it?

A:

Without knowing the model number of your washer I will not be able to provide any model specific information. Generally speaking the "OL" error code could indicate an overloaded washer/friction problem or it could mean the lid is open, depending on the model washer.

From what you are describing it sounds like either the motor is dragging down for some reason or the control board is falsely sensing an overloaded condition. I added an image with some useful information if you have an Oasis washer.

I recommend making a visual inspection by looking under the washer to see if something is obstructing the motor movement, also check between the tub cover & the top of the spin basket. Make sure the basket will move freely up and down too. If you still have the same results after making these checks I would recommend calling a service technician to diagnose & repair.

Be sure to disconnect electrical power before attempting any checks.

Resubmit your question with the model number and details for model specific information.

Q:

What does F70 and OL indicate on my Kenmore Elite washer?

A:

The F70 and OL error codes indicate that the washer basket is overloaded or that it cannot disengage. The basket of this washer is designed to "float" freely when the tub is filled with water. If it is overloaded or has a mechanical problem disengaging to float as shown in the image below, then the F70 error code will appear.

Make sure that you are not overloading the washer.

If the washer displays this code with little or no garments loaded in the washer, then I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the unit.

Q:

Kenmore washer 110.92195110 has OL displayed.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. The "OL" indicates an open lid. The lid must be shut in order for it to spin and drain. If the lid is shut and "OL" is displayed then it may have a faulty lid switch, faulty lid switch wiring or possibly a faulty control board if the lid switch and lid switch wiring is Okay.

The lid switch is located under the top of the washer. In order to gain access to the lid switch, the washer cabinet must be taken off. Before the washer cabinet can be tilted forwards and removed the dispenser hoses must be disconnected from the 3 port connector. To access the dispenser hoses you will need to remove the plastic cover located under the left side of the control panel. To remove the control panel; remove the screw located at the bottom front corner of each control panel end cap. I added an image below showing how to remove the cabinet NOTE: Disconnect the power cord before servicing your washer.

I added a YouTube video showing the basic instructions on how to access the lid switch Be sure to remove the small cover under the left side of the control panel and disconnect the three hoses before removing the cabinet.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
