To Access/replace the CCU:

#1

Unplug the Whirlpool Cabrio power cord from the wall outlet. Turn off the water supply to the washing machine. Pull the washer away from the wall so that you can access the screws behind the control console. Remove the hex head screws securing the control console to the washer with a nut driver. The screws are on the lower rear edge of the control console.
#2

Lift the control console up, and rotate the console forward so that the face of the console is resting on the top of the washer. Locate the interface board cable connector to the right of the plastic tube on the back of the console. Pull the end of the connector straight out of the control console. The primary machine control is the box that the plastic tube connects.
#3

Place small pieces of masking tape around the nine wires connecting to the primary machine console. Label the wire locations onto the masking tape with a pencil. Grasp each wire at the connector with your fingers, and pull the wires away from the primary control. Pull the plastic tube out of the primary control.
#4

Locate the nut toward the bottom of the primary control. Remove the nut with a nut driver. Lift the front of the primary control slightly, and slide it down to disengage the retaining clips. Pull the primary control out of the control console. Insert the new primary control into the control console. Slide the primary control up to engage the lower clips. Secure the primary control to the console with the single hex head screw.
#5

Push each of the wire connectors into their respective positions on the primary control until they lock into place. Push the plastic tube hose over the port on the right side of the primary control. Remove the small pieces of masking tape from the wires.
#6

Position the control console back upright on the top of the washer. Secure the control console to the washer with the three hex head retaining screws. Slide the washer back against the wall. Turn on the water supply and plug the washer into the wall outlet.

Washing machine does not spin well and leaves the clothes soaking wet


Likely a bad belt or tensioner causing it to slip. Take it apart and look to see what the belt is doing or call a repair man.

While doing a load of clothes this afternoon, the washing machine starting making a very loud off balance banging sound, I rearranged to load but the basket continued to wobble wildly. Please help!!


The tub assembly is suspended by either coil springs or heavy rubber 'O' rings. One may have come loose or has broken. You may be able to spot the one causing the problem by taking off the lower back panel and examining the suspension while someone moves the tub; keep your fingers clear though-

The washing stops 3 times when you first start it with the codes F1 on display then 3 more times with 19 min. left with the codes F1. What is F1? Everytime it stops I press the stop button then start...


This F1 Code is a Communication disconnection problem between the Control Unit and the Electronic Curcuit Box. First Check the Connection and reply me with the make and model no.

How do you open a Kenmore Elite Oasis top-loading washer?


I just finished installing my new control unit for my Kenmore Oasis and my F1 problems are GONE! I ordered it from Sears Direct Parts. With shipping and taxes it came out to about $174 for the part, but our issues are gone and now we can wash a load of clothes without having to reset it several times.
