UE Error Code - To Load Washer

The uE or UE code is not an error; it 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 washer needs your assistance to balance the load evenly.

Choose either of the following options:

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

    • Reduce Spin Speed to Low or No Spin on Small Loads.

  2. Mixed Fabric Loads:

  3. Type of Load:
    • Use Bulky/Large Cycle for such items as rugs, comforters, sheets, blankets and pillows.

    • Manually redistribute the load.
