UE Error Code - Top Load Washer

Troubleshooting Laundry Accessories, Washers Last Updated 02/23/2017
UE Error Code - Top Load Washer

The uE or UE error code is a quick indication that your washer has an unbalanced load distribution inside the drum.

When the washer displays uE, it attempts to self-balance the load up to 3 trials. If the self-balance attempt fails after the three trials; it will switch to the UE code. At this point, the machine needs your assistance to balance the load evenly.

How to prevent and remove uE/UE error code on your machine.

Adjusting the load distribution inside the drum is the first approach. If the error code persists, you need to adjust the tub leveling for proper balance of the machine.

If the weight of the items inside the drum is not evenly distributed, the uE or UE code will appear. Depending on the type of load being washed, different steps can be taken to remove the code, and ensure that this code does not appear again.

  1. Small loads:

    • Add a few items to distribute the weight.

    • Reduce spin speed to low or no spin on small loads.

  2. Mixed fabric loads:

    • Wash similar fabric types together. For example, pair jeans with jeans, shirt with shirt, and towel with towel.

  3. Type of load:

    • Use bulky/large cycle for items such as rugs, comforters, sheets, blankets and pillows.

    • Reduce spin speed to low or no spin.

    • Manually re-distribute the load.

It is easy to adjust the level and position of your washing machine's drum.
