    I don't know - but I'm with you.  My husband is a lawyer - maybe I can convince him to take it on!  The Kenmore Oasis HE is a piece of junk!  Kenmore was the only thing Sears had going for it with such a great reputation.  No more - don't buy Kenmore!

    I agree 100%. I have had my washer for less than 2 years and it has been out of commision 3 times. I paid $900.00 for the washer, you would think it would run great.

    I'm in on any lawsuit out there. Both my Kemore Oasis washer and my dryer are total junk.

    I have the same junk washing machine and have it two years. In the first 18 months we had to replace the sensory board. I am now getting the F51 error again and Sears will not help me out. They will not stand behind the products they sell. I'm nearly tempted to go picket in front of the washing machines on display and see what they do about it then. I lost my job 4 months ago - what else do I have to do?

    I have also sent in my information to the law firm to be a part of the class action lawsuit. I just sent my information in a few days ago.

    Piece of ****. Don't buy one.

    Lawsuit or picketing were ideas i had. I would like to join in on any law suit. They can pay for my laudromat bills, and the time I am spending there, while my 18 month old $1,000. washer sits at home. I splurged on this washer, and the money did not come easy. Kristi Grover E-Mail:

    We have already had to replace the motherboard on the washer and it looks like we will have to do the same on the dryer. Now our washer keeps saying uneven load and stopping with 11 minutes left. We readjust the clothes and then the same thing happens and it jumps back to 11 minutes, even though it gets down to 7 or 5. What garbage! And not cheap either!!

    I am at the mercy of my washer once again. The first month I had mine the inside "flew apart". Rendering it useless until someone came to fix it 2 weeks later. They would not take it back because it could be fixed and would charge me a restocking fee to take it back. One year and three days after I bought it the door lock broke. Rendering my machine useless again, cause when the door won't lock, it won't work. Sears would not help me because it was out of warranty. My husband and I fixed it ourselves. Now, I have a F-54 code which may indicate the motor is gone. Which will probably cost me a arm and a leg. I tried to purchase a machine with what I thought a reliable reputation (my last machine lasted 15 years) and guess what I got. ****!!! and no money to replace it. I to feel your pain.

Last i heard, the law firm of Andrus Liberty & Anderson LLP was gathering info & looking for folks that not only bought this horrible kenmore appliance, but also experienced the issues we are all seeing. Laurie Jacobsen ( was the person who contacted me back in Oct 2008 via email. i have not heard from her since, but might not be a bad idea to try again. phone # is 415-896-1000.

F1 warning light keep coming on at the start of the washing cycl

Aside from replacing the brain with another one identical to the one that died, which will most likely die again, you can do what the people mentioned below are doing.

Quoted from another site:

If you own a Kenmore Oasis (built by Whirlpool) or Whirlpool Cabrio washer, and you are getting the "F1" error code...or similar codes, and nothing you do fixes the problem, here is what you should do.
Join the class action lawsuit, and sign the petition.
Here is the class action law suit info. Remember, these Kenmore Washers (built by Whirlpool) are basically the same machine as the Whirlpool Cabrio:

"Thank you for your interest in pursuing a lawsuit against Sears relating to the Kenmore HE4t and HE3t Washing Machines. This lawsuit is currently being handled by the law firm of Seeger Weiss, LLP. Sheller, P.C. is co-counsel on the case. Your inquiry submission will be forwarded to Seeger Weiss, and you will be contacted by a Seeger Weiss representative shortly."

"Once again, thank-you for your interest. Any questions may be directed to Jonathan Shub at"

Another frustrated Cabrio owner started a petition to be sent to the CEO of Whirlpool Corp., Jeff Fettit. Follow the link, and please sign it! The more the better! Spread the word!

Maytag Neptune TL clutch problems- Class Action Lawsuit??

I sounds like this is a common problem with the Maytag Neptune TL after about 3-5 years. Mine finally went out yesterday after several months of bearings getting louder all of the time. It looks like the bearings and the controller are gone. What happened to washing machines that last 15 - 20 years?

My kenmore top load oasis washer has an f50 code

Today (4/3/09) I got a letter from Sears. They will replace the electronic control board (you know, the F-51 business) for FREE, in warranty or not. Serial #s for the Bad Board begin: CS48 - CS52 or CT01-CT49. Call Sears at 800-847-9083. The voices of all of us have finally been heard! There is a class action attorney firm in San Francisco looking into a legal remedy.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE F1 Error

Im sorry to tell you but you have a bad control board. This was a faulty board from the factory. There is a class action lawsuit agianst whirlpool (whirlpool made the oasis). Try calling to get whirlpool to fix it. Maybe try joining the lawsuit. They have remanufactured the part so the new one wont do that again. Its a great machine when it works right.

Before you junk the machine try calling and complaining a ton to kenmore. It is a faulty part no matter what they tell you. They have completely remanufactured it to make the board better. so they know this is a problem. If you can get them to pay for part of it... its a great washer!!!!
