Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer
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.

My problem: My washer shows the F1 code at the beginning within a minute of hitting
start. If I hit stop twice (turn the washer off) and restart it, it
will usually work. I worry that eventually this resetting process will not restart the washer, though, and found this website.
My non-solution: In response to the solutions which post the number to call, I just called 800-659-7026 and the representative said that my model will be included in the recall. The only Oasis washer not included is model 110.27082600. He said that corporate is tied up in litigation. He has no estimated date for legal issues being resolved. Contrary to the other solution where a technician is coming out to fix the problem free of charge, my service rep said he could arrange service but that it would cost $60-70 for the visit, not including parts.
I aired my disbelief at this, but all I got was touchy-feely "I know how you feel, and if I had a washer I would feel the same way, if only they could hurry up with this litigation and we can get it going!".
This is unbelievable. I will try calling again, and in the meantime, I am glad that my washer still works.

Ok these are not the series 70, getting a model number off the door will reallllllly help. Some of these sound like the oasis. F1 is motor control or primary control failure and F 41 is a rps thermistor failure.
For the guest with the 11027086601 kenmore elite oasis here is a link for supplying me with a partial model number, much thank yous!! paste in a browser:)

Moister can get in between the contacts,is it in a high moister environment? Try using a hair dryer on the panel to dry it out.Also unplug it to reset.
Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me

Well, you're not gonna like this, but here's the deal.
Remove the three screws on the rear of the control panel and lift it up. Disconnect the rubber hose on the right side of the gray control module and blow through it to make sure it is clear and not kinked. If this check is fine then your control module needs replaced.
Note that Maytag knows this is a fairly common problem. My washer failed 9 months out of warranty with this problem.
The only good news is that it is an easy, though expensive, replacement.
