Re: Kenmore Oasis HE shuts off during wash cycle and...
F1 error means the main control computer board. see other posts in this section as there are many who are complaining about the same problem. buying the new board (revised) will solve the F1 problem, but other problems will soon crop up on this POS washer. if you have the chance to return it to sears, return it immediately!!!!

The manufacturer has issued a remedy for the F-1. What you do is empty the machine of water and unplug it. Open the control panel and remove the pressure hose. Blow out the hose to remove sediment . Re secure it to the control and retry. No parts needed. F-1 Error info
there is a factory defect in the control circuit board of this washer, read and call the number. post is from another owner.
I called 800-659-7026, which seems to be a 3rd party "recall" center for appliance companies, for my F1 error code. All Kenmore HE Elite Oasis machines with Serial Numbers beginning with CS48-CT49 are in the process of being recalled; however the mailings haven't gone out to customers due to hold-ups in legal with wording. Machines with these serial numbers require an upgraded control board and it takes about 10 business days for the part to come in. They ordered it with no questions asked and are coming out July 14th to replace it free-of-charge
Moister can get in between the contacts,is it in a high moister environment? Try using a hair dryer on the panel to dry it out.Also unplug it to reset.
Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me For more help go to live chat. lenwest
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.
I just finished installing my new control unit for my Kenmore Oasis and my F1 problems are GONE! I ordered it from Sears Direct Parts. With shipping and taxes it came out to about $174 for the part, but our issues are gone and now we can wash a load of clothes without having to reset it several times.
