The spinning cycle always fails

The machine washes and drains but every time it starts the spinning cycle, starts speeding up, and then it stops and shows UL on the display.

The unit is leveled and we have tried doing it empty and still fails.

Claus Rieper, as you already know the UL error is an unbalanced load error. Since it happens even with an empty washer it sounds like the problem is the rotor positioning sensor (RPS). This is the part you would need. Here is a video that at 3:09 shows the location of the RPS. Hope this helps, good luck.

While trying to get to the positioning sensor as advised by oldturkey03; I noticed that the bolt that holds the rotor in place was totally loose, tight it up, gave it a try and now the washer is working OK

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction and video.
