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.

Replace tub bearing on top loader Kenmore elite


I have a Kenmore elite oasis top loader. The tub bearing caused the noise level to get increasingly higher over a period of a few weeks. Finally it sounded like an airplane taking off. I thought about trying to fix it myself. Meanwhile I talked to the Sears representative and they offered me a one year warranty ( my old warranty ran out last year and I did not renew). The cost was about $135.00. However, I talked to a relative who works in the factory and he thought that was a good deal. I called the repairman and am glad I did. The bearing was stuck so badly that he had to remove outer tub and finally replace with a new one. Two men came the next day and installed the new tub and associated bearing. I saved a lot of money and the washer sings quietly now. So, before you get in over your head, you might want to see if there is an available warranty. Otherwise, get ready for a fight getting the bearing out from under the washer.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis washing machine will drain but not spin and it keeps jumping back and forth to different time cycles. It continually reads "UL" and I keep trying to adjust and balance the load but it does not help.

When washer goes into spin cycle it starts to tub starts to bang against side walls and shortly after error out, with an error on electronic display. Kenmore Elite Oasis


either unit is unlevel or one of the tub supports has come disconnected .... these washers have a slanted top lid so you must put level at side of washer on front and both sides and check front to back with level at side cabine seam as your leveling point

Kenmore elite oasis washing mchn has a bad odor and cloths smell


The first thing to do is to CHECK IN AND AROUND THE RUBBER DOOR BOOT (called a bellow) for small articles of clothing (like socks and underwear) that may have gotten lodged in behind the rubber. Pull the rubber back where it meets the wash tub and look behind it. It is common for small items to get stuck here, become forgotten and start to mildew. You should check this area after each wash and clean it periodically to get rid of the formation of soap scum, mold, and mildew. HINT: When you get ready to wash a load of towels, take a dirty towel and clean the door boot thoroughly (including the areas behind the rubber). Immediately place the towel in the wash and run it on a sanitary cycle. This way you eliminate the need for cleaning rags.

PERIODICALLY RUN THE WASHER ON A CLEANING CYCLE. Place the washer on the hottest setting you have (usually a Sanitary cycle) with nothing but bleach in the wash tub. Some newer models actually have a "Clean Cycle" available now just for this purpose. This helps keep the wash tub, drain lines and pump sanitized.

CHECK AND CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER. Accumulations of debris in the drain pump filter can also cause odors. HINT: If you own a shop vac, pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line. This will drain any residual water left in the tub, pump and drain lines BEFORE you remove the drain pump cover. This will prevent a messy clean up later.

LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN IF POSSIBLE. When not in use, leave the door open to allow the tub to air out and to keep mold and mildew from forming on the door bellow. I know this may not be desirable in some households with small children. If too much mildew forms on the rubber and it cannot be removed, replacement of the bellow may be required.

NOTE: This problem is common with front loader style washing machines. The doors on these machines have an air tight/water tight seal that is great for sealing the washer during the wash cycle, but can be terrible for collecting small garments and for not allowing the tub to properly air out when not in use. Following these simple preventive measures can go a long way towards preventing harmful mold and mildew, and towards extending the life of the door bellow and pump.

Cleaning cycle


bleach goes in the bleach area. no soap or clothes in the washer. close the lid and hit the power & clean washer buttons. should run for 60 minutes, but check it after an hour to make sure it is complete. mine ran (malfunctioned) for over 3 hours indicating 7 minutes left.
