Kenmore Elite 796.29272000 UE error.

01 December 2012 - 11:48 PM

New to the forum, howdy everyone.


The machine would not spin correctly and made a bit of a noise, I replaced a broken Coupling Assembly, and the machine now goes into the spin cycle.  A few months out of warranty period, of course. 


Problem is that as soon as it gets a few minutes into the spin cycle, it blinks a UE (unbalanced load), then the timer goes back anywhere from 30 minutes to 13 minutes (depending on the type of wash cycle chosen) and keeps repeating the cycle right up to the spin, when the UE error pops up again, and the process repeats.


The machine is level, and the drum moves very little before setting off the unbalance error.  It will do this with an empty washer or a very well balanced load, makes no difference.


Any suggestions or insights welcome.  


I believe this machine is also sold as an LG5101.  Finding a service manual online would be a great help too.
