Question about Washing Machines
I do not know if you have the manual for that machine.
Perhaps the manual for it can be found in the following URL.
If this helps you diagnose the problem, then you are one step closer to fixing it. From this far away, and without remote access to the trouble-shooting circuit of the machine, giving you the manual is the best I can do.

...most likely the balance sensor, a small contact switch behind the main control panel that is telling the machine it is out of balance, more likely the switch and/or contacts have corroded...

I'm sure this is probably too late, but hopefully it will help some else. I just had the same problem. First, unplug the power. Then take the lower front panel off and grabbed a bucket. Place the bucket under the large "plug" on your right. This is the drain. Slowly unscrew the drain plug, Hold your nose as it will probably smell. Allow the water and such to drain into the bucket. When you see the blob of wet lint drop into the bucket you will know why the machine refused to work. Make sure you clean the drain plug and screw it back in tightly. Put the lower panel back on and reconnect the power. I hope this resolves your issue.

Clogged pump stopped up drain. If the washer does not think all water was pumped out in 8 minutes then it shuts down. Slow drain is my first inclination.

After getting the F1 error on my model 110.27086601 and looking at other posts here & elsewhere, I made one call to the "Product Resolution Center" at 800-847-9083 on 4/9/10. They answered quickly, looked up the model & serial number I gave them (begins with CT18) and confirmed that the unit is covered under the "upgrade plan" (as opposed to calling it a recall). They are sending the part directly to me today and they scheduled a Sears tech to come install it in 10 days (or less if the part arrives sooner). The part, shipping and service call are free. The whole call took less than 5 minutes and was no more difficult than ordering a pizza. The agent was polite, professional and a pleasure to deal with.
I'm pleased that 2 years after the warranty expired they are providing this repair free of charge and without any hassle.
To those who have had problems when calling or who will be calling, may I offer this tidbit for dealing with any customer service contact? Be polite and businesslike. The agent on the other end doesn't need to hear about "how disappointed you are, blah, blah" or that you've "been a loyal customer for 84 years" and you've "never had a problem like this" or any other editorial commentary - just be friendly, and say something like " Hi, I have an Oasis washer with the F1 problem and I understand that there's a recall covering this." That's exactly what I said and the agent efficiently handled everything from there.
Remember, the agent gets measured on the number of calls they complete so they just want to take care of you as quickly as possible. Help them by just simply stating the problem and just answering their questions with just the information requested. They are not there to listen to people whine - they've heard everything you have to say a thousand times and they will appreciate your brevity and no nonsense demeanor. Make it easy for them and they'll make it easy for you. Do your venting here if you must.
