Leaving "grime" in the wash bin

We've only been using the Oasis HE for a week. Unfourtnately my daughter was sick in her bed, so I threw all the sheets in the wash. It didn't even come CLOSE to cleaning them. It took 3 cycles and there was residual junk in the wash bin. I thought there was a filter? I used the heavy duty cycle, it didn't even touch the "affected" area of her sheets. Just gross. Any suggestions? I broke it up into more than one load to be sure not to overload. I was very happy with it until now.

Re: Leaving "grime" in the wash bin

To be honest with u the oasis has a problem sometimes washing large items since there is no agitator it kind of just sits there and rotates but never throws the clothes around if u call a tech out they will probably tell you the same thing i would return it and get one with an agitator.

My GE washer is leaving a brown oily residue inside the drum after washes.

I amj thinking that you use soap powder in your washing machine. If that is the case what you are expericing is the accumulated powder residue under the agitator breaking away and marking the clothes. Re move the agitator and clead all the gunk out of the machine including a water recycling(saver ) hoses. Washing powder is 90% clay that is used to carry the active ingredaient and is never completely flushed in the rinse cycle. Ity also cause a deteriation of the hoses and pumpseal. When you have cleaned out the machine I recommend you only use liquid detergents as they are more effective and don't leave the residue.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis HE model number: 110.27072603 washing machine shows LID error code. It wont work at all.... went half way through cycle... help.

this washer has a lid switch problem...or possible main board failure, but lid does concentrate on the lid safety switch. If you remember when you open the lid it stops..well, its a safety feature and prevents tub from spinning with lid open...this one is more difficult to service if your not use to working on washers...try unplugging machine and leaving off for awhile...does the door lock? check switch for lid fault

Kenmore oasis electric dryer beeps and displays code F45

We had this error on our machine for about a year before we finally got sick and tired of it. Our dryer was purchased in 2006.

Here is the solution: the code means there is an error on the thermistor. Our thermistor was loose, as were other electrical wires. My husband tightened up all the connections and the thermistor, and we have never had this error again.

However, we will never buy these machines again either, because we have had numerous other errors on the washer and dryer.

F2 and beeping

The F2 error is the user control board gone south on you, a new board will fix the machine, as always do you own your home and does the insurance cover appliances?

Kenmore Oasis washer will not turn on

I have the same problem. I used the unit 2 days ago and no problems- just bragged about the unit yesterday and now today it will not turn on and it is no longer under warranty. I also checked to see if power to plug and it is fine. Any suggestions?

Mold & Smelly in Washer

Thanks for your suggestion about looking in the lip of the seal. I found one of my three year old granddaughters socks. Also, the seal for very dirty so I mixed a 50% solution and 50% solution of chlorox and used an old towel rag to wipe and wash throughly around the lip seal.

I noted that the aluminum ring inside the washer had also accumulated a lot of dirt. With one hand and fingers I held the wet cholorx towel inside the ring and with the other hand spun the tub around several turns until I had removed all the dirt and grime.

It did have a moldy smell. I'll let you know if this fixed the problem.

No display on Kenmore Oasis

there should be a repair manual inside the machine. If you use a screw driver in the front to open the top of the machine the manual should be on the inside of the front panel.
