Maytag Bravos Washer OL error
I have a Maytag Bravos top loading washer, we sold our house and the washer spent ~7 months in the apartment garage and now we are in a new house. I hooked the washer up and ran a load which stopped with an OL error, which was odd to begin with since it was a very tiny load. I tried again with nothing and I still get the error. With the washer empty I select the rinse/spin cycle, the washer starts the rinse cycle but when the tub finishes filling with water the remaining time drops from 17 minutes to 4 minutes, the washer empties the water, does not spin at all and displays the OL error code. I have checked that the washer is level but with no clothes in the washer I'm at a loss for why it would think it's overloaded. I don't know if the storage has anything to do with it or not, maybe something got bumped in the two moves but the washer was working fine when it was disconnected from the old house. Please let me know your thoughts.

Maytag Bravos "oL" error message ...
I am having the exact same problem. We were gone for a little over two months, and upon our return, have been having this same problem with every load. It was working fine before we left, nothing as done to it while we were gone. Any help, anybody? Please!
