Question about Dryers
Our 13 month old dryer has suddenly started beeping with a CF code followed by 01, 02 and 03. When this happens I cannot turn the dryer on at all. The manual shows no information on CF codes or what to do with them. I've unplugged the dryer, reset the breaker switch and still get the same results. Model 110.67082600 Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I found the tech sheet under the controls. F-01 is a "Primary Control Failure". F-02 is a Key pad failure. The test for this is:
1. Be sure the dryer is in standby mode.
2. Select any one button execept stop and follow these steps using the same button: press/ hold for 3 sec., release for 3 sec., press/ hold for 3 sec., release for 3 sec., press/ hold for 3 sec.
3. If this test mode has been entered successfully, all indicators on the consoel are illumated fo 5 seconds with 88 showing in the time window.
4. Press evey button except for stop and it should illuminate or beep if it is working. Then press stop to finish.
I found the button that was stuck and pressed it several times to unstick it.
My error code went away.

Remove the top console (plastic control panel) of the dryer ( 3 screws on the back, tip and slide forward). Inside the console or taped under it should be the tech sheet for the dryer (unless a previous service person did not put it back).
Read over the tech sheet. In there there will be a section on how to initiate the computer's diagnostic routine. This is typically activated by pressing and holding any button on the console (other than the stop button) for 2-5 seconds, seven times in a row. When activated all the LEDs (lights) on the console illuminate, and then the console displays the actual “F” error/failure codes. In many cases with these Oasis Dryers (model 110.67082600) and similar models the typical one which will be displayed will be F-02 code (even if you got CF 01, 02 and/or 03 before activating the diagnostic routine. F-02 indicates that a button (or possibly several) on the front (user interface) console is simply stuck. If this is the code you get, simply press each of the buttons on the main console and to find which button is indeed sticking (i.e. the one that doesn't work will be the culprit). Save the Stop button for last as that button exits the diagnostic mode, if it is not the one that is sticking.
The tech sheet (which again shold have been right inside the console housing) explains step by step how to remove the console interface board from the console housing (3 screws and 3 plastic clips). Sometimes simply plaing with the button on the board will get it unstuck, but a simple spray with electronics contact cleaner (which can be purchased at any Radio Shack or other electronics parts store) into the base of the stuck switch on the board, and pressing it quickly a few times will usually do the trick. Once the button is unstuck, no more error code, and the dryer will work fine again. If you can't seem to get the button unstuck (or if it is really damaged), you can either replce the button switch yourself (if you have the electronics and soldering know-how), or buy a new console board from one of the many online parts houses for around $100.
Again you will need to locate the tech sheet inside the console housing or order one from Whirlpool or Sears for you model for under $10 if yours is missing. Some models vary in what each code means so you will need the tech sheet to be sure.
Best of Luck Everone...
