It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hi I have a kenmore elite oasis dryer. And all of a sudden it only will run for about a minute and then it shuts off. I tried turning it back on again and it does the same thing. Then after the third time...


The first suggestion I have for you is to simply run an Air Fluff cycle with no heat.

If the Air Fluff cycle runs okay then the problem is most likely with the thermistor.

You can try to run the dryer with the vent hose off and see if there is a difference.

Dryer Does Not Run
Your Kenmore Oasis dryer may occasionally not operate as intended. When the dryer does not turn on, check that the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet. Check your fuse box to make sure a fuse hasn't blown or the circuit breaker hasn't tripped. Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker as needed. Next, check that you have fully closed the dryer door; if not, the dryer will not run. Finally, make sure that you press and hold the "Start" button for at least five seconds.
Dryer Making Noise
Kenmore Oasis dryers will make noises that occur commonly with the running of the machine, including the motor and the sound of hot air blowing into the machine. Listen for uncommon noises with the running of the dryer, such as metallic clanking and excessive vibration. These noises indicate a problem with the machine.
If you hear metallic clanking, stop the dryer and check for any metal objects in the dryer drum. Often, change or other objects left in the pockets of clothing placed in the dryer will then fall out when the dryer starts spinning, creating the noise.
Excessive vibration often occurs when you have not properly leveled the dryer. To check whether the dryer is level, turn it off and try shake it frontward and backward, then left and right. If the dryer moves, adjust one or more of the legs needs to level the dryer: Determine which leg(s) you need to adjust and use a wrench to lengthen or shorten the legs. A level dryer will more quietly due to the elimination of vibrations.
Drying Time is Too Long
You may find that your laundry takes a long time to dry in the Kenmore Oasis dryer. This often occurs due to restricted the air flow within the machine. First, clear the lint filter. Clean it before every drying cycle to ensure proper air flow through the machine.
Next, run the dryer as usual and check the exhaust vent to ensure that airflows out of the vent. If you cannot feel air flowing through the vent, check it for blockage or damage. Clear any objects blocking the vent, or replace it if it has sustained damage.
The blockage may also occur in the exhaust hose attached to the back of the dryer. Unplug the dryer and remove the hose from the back of the machine. Clean out any lint or other obstruction and reattach the hose to clear the exhaust hose.

We have a kenmore elite oasis dryer.one year old.just bought from some people only had it for two days.it 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.

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Takes too long to dry or keeps running when clothes are dry


If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)

  • The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

Oasis HE dryer- runs down to "7" and then continously runs


Have you checked the vent duct, all the way to the outside of the house, to make sure you get a strong blast of air at the discharge? I've seen lint build up in the louver enough to limit air flow, and depending on how it is sitting, you can not always see the lint unless the dryer is runnig.

And, if you look up inside the drum, you'll see a grate area where the heated air comes from the burner. That grate should be clear of lint. If not, you'll need to access it from the backside and collect all the loose lint.

Also, make sure the vent hose doesn't crimp when you push the dryer back to the wall.

It might be that you have a bad over temp thermostat, but I would expect that to reset in a period of time. It would extended the dry cycle, but it doesn't explain the timer stopping. And last but not least, it could be the timer, but if I remember correctly, you said nudging the timer doesn't make the burner come back on.

Let me know what you find. I'm curious to help you fix this.

Check the vent pipe going to the outside of the house, including the vent louver, to make sure the pipe is not partially or fully clogged with lint.

Your symptoms are a classic description of reduced or no airflow from the dryer.
