Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
#
2

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.
#
3

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
4

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.
#
5

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.
#
6

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.
#
7

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.

Water does not drain from dispenser into tub/drum fast enough


pull out the dispenser,check inside where the dispenser goes into,i found in two washers the white circle piece that's inside the cap to detergent,when water would go in the cap would block the fill tube,if you checked the dispenser and water flows through you have something blocking the fill tube,hopefully the washer and dryer are not stacked,you might have to take the top lid off to get at the fill tube or fill hose to clear it.good luck with your washer

Hi there I have a Hotpoint WF541 washing machine. It has worked fine for 2 years, but now leaks a small amount of water from the soap dispenser down the front of the machine onto the floor. If...


Hi Sheena from retired Englishman in SW France @ 21:51 Sun evening (nothing on TV!)

Sorry if this seems a silly question/answer but have you removed the dispenser completely and ensured that it is not blocked anywhere, especially the conditioner/softener drawer area? Normally the pre-wash and wash powders sit in open ended trays to drop straight into the drum but the conditioner does not. It is not allowed out until the right time- it has to be flushed/siphoned out by the water feed. A common problem is that the tube/pipe which is in this tray down which it siphons is blocked- possible by a mix of powder and conditioner. It is easy to accidentally let the powder spill into it when filling.
My advice is to pull the drawer completely out and give it a good clean out, especially the conditioner bit!
Dispensers are removed either by pulling almost all of the way out then 1) pressing down on the lip at the rear to clear or 2) releasing the clip underneath the dispenser or 3) by lifting upwards just as you are pulling it out, whichever is the way for your machine.
Hope this cures the leaking!
Best of luck,

John C

Water leaks from softner dispenser


I had same thing with MtgNeptune frnt loader. Manual sed may be a kink in the front drain hose, caused by sudden burst in water pressure. Not in my case. A service call and $90 laterwasn't fixed. I pulled the soap tray and found rinse water wasn't going down the well as fast as it was filling, causing water to spill down front, and around the door. I turned down the water pressure 2 days ago and 9 loads later- no problem! It may take a few minutes longer to fill, but far less work than mopping after each load or hitting 'pause' and 'start' while waiting for the the water level to go down. We're on a well and ocassionally have change in water pressure. I don't know if this was the problem, but it was definately my solution! I turned the intake vavles at the wall to 1/2 pressure. Floor is staying dry and the drain tray beneath is also dry ($12.00 Menards). I hope this helps.

Foreign object in soap dispenser


Unplug machine from power, do not restart it until you get the plastic cap, as you can cause more damage.
Try first using a long stick to reach the object at the end of the drawer, inside the hose, be careful not to hole the hose or brak other parts inside the drawer.
If it does not come out this way, I am afraid you will need to take apart the back , and probably also the top panel.
You need to access the hose starting from the detergent drawer and ending into the pump, once the hose is lose on both sides you blow compressed air inside the hose.
If you do not start the machine the pump cannot be damaged.
If you start the washing machine with the object inside, in the best case it will malfunction because hose is obstructed. In worst case you burn the pump as the hose get obstructed.

If machine is less than one year old this maintainance can be covered with guaranty,

If you need to call in a repairman you can use the number listed at the end of the user manual.

Water Leaking really bad from the Dispenser area


Disconnect the plug from the outlet. Remove the top of the washer panel by removing the 2 back hex screws then sliding it back to lift it off of the washer. Take off the front control panel by removing the phillips screws holding it in place. Remove the dispenser drawer. Check the dispenser housing for clogs or lime build up at the bottom of the dispenser housing. Or the drain hose (large black hose attached to the front of the drawer housing) to the washer may be crimped or clogged.

Soap dispenser drip


Normally you shut off the wall valve when you are thru with your washing. If there is a leak in the front area (important: first take the plug off the wall) open up the top of the machine and check whether the three rubber tubes are in place at the soap dispenser - one of them may have come off. Refit or replace if rubber tube is damaged; would be good to check all the tubes. Another thing would be to check that your soap dispenser is not clogged. :)
