What might be causing the OL error code on my Whirlpool Cabrio washer?

Whirlpool Cabrio - Model# WTW6500WW

My washer stops half way through the wash cycle and gives me an OL message. It doesn'e seem to spin after each cycle. What might be the cause of this? I have to restart the machine in the rinse and drain cycle and then to the drain and spin cycle in order for the machine to complete the wash cycle.

I had a oL error code (overload code) on my Whirlpool Cabrio. The basket (drum) was not floating up to disengage from the shaft when it was supposed to. I was able to remove the agitator as shown here youtube.com/watch?v=D2mxOA-taoo with little effort. But when I tried to pull the basket up and off the shaft it wouldn't budge. I was able to free it by lifting the basket up with one hand while pounding on the end? of the shaft with a 3 foot long 4x4. I found that the shaft had rusted to the basket. I sanded up the shaft. Now it works without the oL code.
