The F54 fault code indicates that the control board senses high motor current.
This can be caused by excessive friction in the spin basket.
With the washer off, open the lid and see if the basket spins freely.
If not, you may need to remove the basket and check for an item stuck between the spin basket and the outer washer tub.
The second and third images show procedures for removing the basket on the Oasis washer depending on whether you have an impeller or agitator in your model.
If the basket spins okay, then you can follow the technical troubleshooting described in the first image.
This may help you determine the cause of your washer problem.

    I recently found one of our 4 machines to have a broken lid latch, but I knew already that the bearings / seal were out so took it apart to investigate. Obviously water had seeped into the motor but I had no way to see what had really happened. After replacing latch, seals and bearings the machine ran for a day but then developed a groaning noise and error F54. Upon taking the motor apart I found 2 shorted coils which had overheated, probably because of the fact that the permanent magnet motor was acting as a generator for these two coils. The key sign was that on pinning the basket by hand I could feel the "Magnetic" resistance.

    So I imagine that a staff member, on seeing error F54 which left the lid locked down and water and clothes in the machine had forced the lid, breaking the latch and thus creating a secondary problem that hid the original one.

    So if the basket will turn but with some resistance it may be worth examining the motor coils for burning, that being the case I am not sure if repairs are viable or whether a new machine would be the cheapest way out.

Kenmore Elite oasis washer code F54


F54 is a Motor Control Overcurrent.
1) check to see if there is anything between basket and agitator this can cause this error.
2)move the basket .. should move freely
if all is clear then most likely you will need a new motor

My Kenmore Elite Oasis washing machine will drain but not spin and it keeps jumping back and forth to different time cycles. It continually reads "UL" and I keep trying to adjust and balance the load but it does not help.

I have a model 27096 top load kenmore elite oasis he washing machine that keeps flashing code F2 and keeps turning itself on. Help


"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

Kenmore Oasis F54 code


F54 = Motor Control Overcurrent
Does the basket turn freely? If not, determine cause of friction.
There is a detailed repair manual inside the machine. If you open the top of the machine with a screw driver in the front you will find the manual on the inside of the front panel. Good luck
