Question about Kenmore 4.5 cu. ft. Oasis Canyon Top Load Washer

1 Answer

F1 error I had the same EXACT problem as you I called Sears with same recall results as you had I replaced the circut board as other readers said ( after 1st trying to disconnect & reconnect with no luck) and it worked Sears said part was backordered until oct 5th but received in 5 days was about $130 to fix myelf beats $400 for service call it is a shame that this breaks in less than 2 years but I thought it was worth taking a chance for a little over $100 vs $900 for a new washer. To stop the hassle of wasting time to reset at start of rinse cycle was worth the price I will still try to get something back from sears but at least the washer works (for now anyway) Hope this helps ?

The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.



It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.



The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.



The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE

NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.



There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.

A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.

When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.

If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.

This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.



NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.



If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.

As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

The Whirlpool Cabrio and Kenmore Oasis (same machine) are infamous for this problem. Depending on the serial number you may be entitled to a new control board installed for free under a recall program. Call Whirlpool for eligibility. I had just had mine replaced last week for free and it runs fine now.

Oasis 110.273 "F1" error on inital and rinse cycle fill. Have already checked to make sure all connections were secure.


The F1 error on the Oasis is a known issue. Sears recalled the computer module because it's defective and produces this error along with F71 code errors. Unfortunately, unless your serial number meets their current criteria, they won't honor the recall because it expired on 08/31/2009 for some serial numbers. Best bet is to call and find out if they'll honor it. If you talk nice & originally bought it from Sears, they might. They did for me. But then we had to replace the RPS. Now the stator. This machine is an expensive piece of junk.

F1 Error Codes


sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but its the machine/motor control unit (circuit board). if you don't want to involve sears to get them to pay a portion of the bill, then go to searspartsonline and order one yourself. you'll need your model number to get the right part number ECU (which should be W10189966 rev A) which will run you about $150. replacing it is relatively easy is you're handy at home. sears service will charge you another $130 to install it. this will fix the F1 problem.

not sure if sears has finally recalled this washer. if they finally do, then all our problems go away (yeah, right).

Folks F1 means the board is bad, I would definitely call the line listed above with model and serial number. They will schedule a tech, maybe me if your in Phoenix and they will give you a receipt, but if there smart the call will be set to transfer the charge to Sears:)

Wtw6600sw whirlpool cabrio


First off I hope you have a Sears unit and second you did not pay a penny. Your F 1 error is a Primary control failure. Part W10104830 and one other do F1 and a oL code.
If you own a Sears machine you qualify for a recall under sf26-779B.
There is two parts to this call the board and a washplate
MCU part # W10201186
Washplate # W10077050
Recall will need your name and phone number and the machine model and serial number.

If you meet all of these conditions to the letter call Sears Recall at 1-800-659-7026
