Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer
Sears came out and advised control board has to be replaced.
Washer is one year old and manf warranty just expired. Did not take out additional warranty.
Code F1 appears when you attempt to wash and washer stops
Is this something I can replace myself if I purchased the control board?
Sears cost is $515.00 including part, labor and tax. The cost of the part alone is $404.00 through Sears.
Is this worth fixing or should I call it quits and purchase a new washer
Today (4/3/09) I got a letter from Sears. They will replace the electronic control board (you know, the F-51 business) for FREE, in warranty or not. Serial #s for the Bad Board begin: CS48 - CS52 or CT01-CT49. Call Sears at 800-847-9083. The voices of all of us have finally been heard! There is a class action attorney firm in San Francisco looking into a legal remedy.

I too had the misfortune of dealing with the continuous beeping on my washer (model # 110.27062600). No code was given.I called the Sears hotline and asked for the manufacturers warranty department. I then called the recall line at (800)659-7026 and after giving my model number and serial number they discovered is was indeed recalled or being "upgraded"! They have ordered the part and are sending someone out. For those who have already paid to have it repaired I would call Sears and ask for a refund. Good luck!

Call Sears recall office. You will need your serial and model #'s which are located under the lid of the machine. They will check to see if you qualify for the upgrade. They will send you the part and set up an appointment for the repair. It is FREE!! I hope this helps and good luck!!!!!

I called (800) 659 -7026 for my washer (model #110.27087602) and it also on the recalled list (not formal announcement yet) but they will come out and fix the problem on the 8/14.

Harvey, these are not hard to replace, but check one thing before ordering the new board. If the pressure tube (plastic tubing) going to the board is pinched or blocked in any way, it will give the same code as a failed control board. I've learned the hard way on this. You can go to repairclinic.com and get a price on your board. The top consol has 3 screws, on each end and center that come off and the consol lifts up. The board sits on the right side. Just mark the connections. Catriver.

The recall line 808-659-7026 is now saying (Aug 8, 2008) that a recall has not been issued; they say there was one for a very short time but has been withdrawn while they review the problem! She (Lilly) suggested I wait until I get a letter, but if not within a month, I call back!!

I was having the same problem with my dryer and a few days ago, it gave out. I called both phone numbers 800-847-9083 and 800-659-7026 and the phones were answered by the same person, her name was Blanca. She informed me that there are no recalls for their dryers. This is BS. I am very dissapointed in their products and will no longer buy from Sears.

The so called recall numbers 800-847-9083 and 800-659-7026 ... are answered by the same people ... rhe 808 # above is a boo boo ... right this minute I am wondering if SEARS owns those phone lines and they just have poor Linda sitting there PRETENDING to look up your model #'s and giving the standard response of "No, ma'am/sir, that model has not been recalled" just to shut us up and frustrate us ... Things that make ya go hmmmmm.
