    We get code F51 and it stops in the middle of the cycle.  It is only 18 months old.  The machine is terrible.  have read about class actions suits for this washer.  Sears says you need a new control board at 400.00.  That's crazy.  If a product breaks down in 18 months it's obviously faulty.  Is there anything we can do.

    I have the same problem!!!! Unfortunatlly, we purchased ours on display for a less expensive cost because of a scratch and we have no manual.

    I've had my machine a little over 2 years and it beeps way to much. It just recently a couple days ago, totally quit. It won't even power up as if I've got a electronic board problem. I did not get the extended warranty and now I'm stuck with an expensive washer that won't run. I've read that the electronic boards are very expensive. I'm thinking about buying a basic agitating machine instead of spending hundreds of lollars to fix this one when it's probably going to tear up again anyway. Don't buy one of these washers!!!

It is the control board that has failed. there is an upgraded version that runs about $150 and can be installed by the homeowner. its not that difficult. and, if you call sears one source, they may pick up $100 in parts and $150 in service call fees if you complain enough.

however, this doesn't explain why a recall has not been issued for this problem and others that will soon crop up as the machine ages (HC code, LF code, constant UL code).

i learned from this experience. i will never buy another kenmore item again.

While filling it will flash an F1 code and stop. If I cancel the cycle and press start again it will usually go ahead with that cycle until the nest fill up. What is an F1 code?

This is a pressure sensor issue on the machine control board .The only sure fix is to replace the machine control board which has been updated numerous times.( whirlpool is very aware of the problems) At one time whirlpool was assisting owners who had this concern .

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE/ Error Code F1

Sorry to tell you but you have a faulty control board. It is a bad part from the factory. They know that its bad too! They have completely remanufactured the part. There is lawsuit against whirlpool (whirlpool made the oasis) for the problem. Some people have been able to call and complain to whirlpool and got them to pay for the repair. Complain a lot. Good luck. sorry for the bad news.
