Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer
The unit will wash put you have to keep hitting the start button till it wants to go,even then the beep goes on and on??
You have a machine/motor control board (also called an ECU) that is on its way out. it will finally fail with the dreaded F1 flashing code, so you're on borrowed time.
you can either call sears one source and complain about this, or do it yourself by buying the part and doing the work. if you call sears one source, they will assign a case number and offer to cover (on average) $150 in labor and $100 in parts (but you have to pay for it up front, then call them back once everything is complete for the refund). have them come out and diagnose it since this a common problem on this crappy expensive washer (i have one and i have never hated something so much in my life as i do this washer).
if you do it yourself, the control board listed on searspartsonline is the latest & greatest that is suppose to solve this issue. i have the new ECU and it solved the F1 issue, but i have other problems that have cropped up (error codes HC & LF). its always something with this POS.
i had rumors about a recall and the paperwork being stuck in the legal department, but nothing new since Nov 2008.
good luck with sears or doing the work yourself.
