Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE/ Error Code F1

Upon Starting the washer it locks the door and starts, then The F1 Starts flashing and the washer stops. IF I stop it and start it really quick by the third try It will run through it's cycle. Help this has been an ongoing problem since I bought this machine. I am really frustrated with this. Our Kenmore Elite WAsher is just over 2 years old and is doing the same thing. Sometimes I hvae to press stop and start just once and other times twice. Has anyone found an uncostly solution? THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM, CODE F1 AND I SPEND THE FIRST 5 MINUTES AT THE WASHER AT EACH WASH TURNING THE THING OFF AND THEN ON AGAIN AND IT FINALLY GOES THROUGH THE CYCLE. HAVE TRIED USING DIFFERENT SETTINGS BUT NOTHING SEEMS TO WORK. AFTER READING ALOT OF WRITE UPS FROM CUSTOMERS I DON'T THINK SEARS WILL BE OF MUCH HELP.

    I have the same problem, but for me it happens when I first start to wash and then again at the rinse cycle. Stop and start until it continues on with the cycle.

    I have the exact same problem with my kenmore elite oasis he washer. My washer is 16 months old and i called sears this morning and they have told me that i would have to have the control board replaced on my washer and it is not covered under the warranty. Upon starting the machine the door locks, it begins to fill and immediately the F1 code pops up and shuts the washer off.

    when I try to start my washer the lid locks and it starts for a moment and then starts to beeb and flashes F1. sometimes I can shut it off and restart and it will run but usually takes 5-10 tries to get to wash.then sometimes it will do it again halfway through the cycle. this washer is an expensive piece of ****

    My Elite washer is doing the same thing as others have described. The F1 function comes on at the beginning of the cycle and I have to play the stop/start game until it decides to work. I'm treated to the same process in the middle of the cycle. The technician wants over $300 to replace the control board. That's almost half the price of the washer! How ridiculous, especially seeing that this F1 problem is so widespread! Sears needs to step up and put out a recall for this control board.

Mine is doing the same exact thing. Just after I press "Start", the F1 starts beeping. Then at 23 minutes into the cycle, it does it again. So frustrating! What is wrong with this machine?

F1 code coming up on my Oasis HE washer


YES! Serious problem...more annoying than anything else. Wait until your machine stops at the spin cycle and displays "F1" again. We just had a repair tech out today and received a quote of $384+ to fix/replace the circuit board. Kenmore & Sears are fully aware of this problem and have issued a recall on a model that is one digit off of the model I have yet they will not do anything about this even though it is the same problem. These machines are huge dogs!

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE/ Error Code F1


Sorry to tell you but you have a faulty control board. It is a bad part from the factory. They know that its bad too! They have completely remanufactured the part. There is lawsuit against whirlpool (whirlpool made the oasis) for the problem. Some people have been able to call and complain to whirlpool and got them to pay for the repair. Complain a lot. Good luck. sorry for the bad news.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE/ Error Code F1


Ok these are not the series 70, getting a model number off the door will reallllllly help. Some of these sound like the oasis. F1 is motor control or primary control failure and F 41 is a rps thermistor failure.
For the guest with the 11027086601 kenmore elite oasis here is a link for supplying me with a partial model number, much thank yous!! paste in a browser:)
