Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27062 Top Load Washer
I recently bought a 27062 and have experienced the F51 error code familiar to this family of machines. The service tech is supposed to be on his way today, but is it going to fix the problem if he replaces the RPS and control board or am I going to be stuck with an overpriced piece of junk? For a thousand dollars, I hope to get 10-15 years out of this machine, but I haven't had it two months and already am having problems. For those who have resolved this issue, should I just try to exchange it while I can? And what machine do you suggest? All of them seem to have a myriad of problems. Please help. Cam
Cam, the F51 is occuring because of a protective spray put on at the factory on the sensor harness pins. At first the cure was to replace the sensor and lower harness. Now all that really has to be done is to scrape the coating off the pins so that the harness makes a good connection. I haven't had one come back after this proceedure. The only other problem I found with this model is that if the pressure hose is pinched in any way, it will come up as a board failure. I only had one like this. For a top loader, it's probably one of the better models. I personally like the HE'3 and HE'4 front loaders. Very good machines. Once the tech cleans those pins, your machine should give you many years of good service. Catriver..post back
