Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer
Absolutely LIVID - I used to just get an F1 code exactly 3 times when I started the load - now I can't leave the room. I got a recall letter, but my model number was not included - just called and was offer a diagnosic for 65-95 and estimate. They act like they have never heard of this problem - yet I find it EVERYWHERE on the internet. What kind of company does not stand behind products they are AWARE have problems? It is criminal and if anyone knows of any higher power I may plea to - please respond. $1000 for this piece of junk and I will have to pay another $35 to have it hauled away.
The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.
It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.
The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.
The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE
NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.
There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.
A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.
When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.
If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.
This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.
NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.
If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.
As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.
