Kenmore Oasis Dryer - CF codes 01, 02, 03

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 have the same problem and have the circuit turned off now. My dryer will continue to work but continues to beep too. I don't want to chance it.

    Our dryer was having the same problem for a about a week. Still beeps but now it won't even power up.

    Same problem but a gas dryer. It seems to run OK. Intermittant beeping. Found foliage against exterior dryer vent and cleared. Still beeps.

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...

Kenmore Elite Oasis Electric Dryer - no power (PF code)

Press and hold the "Start" button to restart the dryer cycle if the "PF" (power failure) error code appears. This code often appears when a cycle is interrupted before it completes. You may also check the breaker or household fuse, and ensure the machine has not come unplugged.

Cf code on testing the dryer (kenmore elite oasis canyon dryer)

The "C" codes are usually just indicators used during a test mode to tell what parts of the system are engaged but are usually followed by 2 numeric digits. (eg. C:00, C:01, C:02, etc.) I've never heard of a "CF" but what it means may depend on *exactly* what the machine is suppose to be doing at the time. You could see if you can locate the appliance's 'tech sheet' that may list such codes which should be with the unit's wiring diagram either inside the machine's control console on inside the washer's cabinet in a small pocket, pouch or envelope stuck to the RH side panel. Maybe it will give you a clue as to what is transpiring? You'll need to probably take of the panel to find it. As far as i know tho- after hitting the test it should actually come up with a c:01-c:08 meaning the test is complete. As loong as it only does this after hitting test you are ok, but double check the tech list inside the panel of your dryer. Hope this helps!

My Kenmore Elite Oasis dryer has a CF code and continuously beeps. Running or not.

The CF error is a communication failure between the main computer and the touch may have a bad or weak connection or a bad computer..I wold recommend that you contact your local Sears and ask them about recalls, and for service should this happen again.

We have a kenmore elite oasis year old.just bought from some people only had it for two was in the middle of a cycle when it suddenly shut off with the code af appearing where the timer...

An "AF" code means there is a low airflow condition and the clothes may not dry properly. To remedy this, check to make sure the lint screen is cleaned off and that there is no blockage in either the vent duct that runs from the dryer to the wall or the vent hood on the exterior of the house.

PF - Power Failure - PF error code indicates a power failure during the dryer's cycle.
Press and HOLD start to continue the cycle, or press off/pause to clear display.

Kenmore oasis electric dryer beeps and displays code F45

We had this error on our machine for about a year before we finally got sick and tired of it. Our dryer was purchased in 2006.

Here is the solution: the code means there is an error on the thermistor. Our thermistor was loose, as were other electrical wires. My husband tightened up all the connections and the thermistor, and we have never had this error again.

However, we will never buy these machines again either, because we have had numerous other errors on the washer and dryer.

Dryer turns itself on & beeps, then off again

aye, see if you can enter the diagnosis mode. What we are looking for is the F-02 code. This will flash when there is a stuck button or user interface problem and only displayed in the test mode. With the unit plugged in and all indicator lights off, select any button except stop. Press for 3 seconds, release for 3 seconds, press for 3 seconds, release for 3 secnds and press for 3 seconds. If you did it right 88 should appear. Press the same button again and if there is a error, it should show up. If no error code shows, open the consol and check the p-5 connector. This will be the interface ribbon to the board. Reseat it and see if the problem stops. Catriver
