The “oL” error code in the Cabrio and Bravo washers means the motor is sensing an overload (“oL”) condition. While this could indicate a problem with the motor, it usually doesn’t. Most of the time, you’ll see this error code when one of two things is going on:
1) There’s a piece of clothing stuck between the inner basket and outer tub.
2) The tub is not floating freely, usually because it’s seized to the drive shaft by rust and crudus; FYI: this condition is almost always caused by using non-HE detergent in this washer– see this post for more info about using non-HE detergents in these high efficiency washing machines. Also, be aware that, if this is the case, it can be very difficult to remove the basket from a badly corroded drive shaft, could even be a two-man job. And be careful you don’t wrench your back!
In either case, you’re gonna need to do some tear-down to remove the inner basket. This video will help you with that.
