Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kennmore Elite Oasis HE washer and dryer time sticks problem.

I took delivery on these units in 7/06 and thankfully I have an extended warranty. I had and still have problems with the dryer where the time will get stuck and the dryer will not stop tumbling until you stop it. The first call he could not duplicate the problem and left. The second time the guy said the problem is the sensor and the fix was to separate the wires and tape them. The third time, there was an error and they replaced the control board. Over the weekend I threw in a load to dry and when I came home 2-3hrs later the dryer was still tumbling and the cloths were VERY DRY. This is an intermittent problem and is very frustrating.

The other day I started a clean cycle on the washer and went about my business and approx 2 hrs later I went to throw in some wash and GUESS WHAT? The washer was stuck on 43 min and the thing was stuck in fill mode. So guess what? I had a puddle of water on the floor. I had to stop it and ran a clean cycle again and no problem.

I wish I never bought these units and I have been dealing with service and every time I ask to speak to a manager they transfer to some other dept and they give me the same run a round. My opinion, don't buy these units.

    Dryer sticks on 10 minutes left to dry and keeps running until stopped. Is it a sensor or control board? Of what I've read, it could be either. Is there a cheap, quick fix?

    Bought Oasis washer and dryer in '06. Worked fine until two months ago. Replaced control panel. It worked for two weeks and machine dropped dead. Now needs new motherboard at $300.00 plus. Have already spent $275 on this dud. No more. Dryer ok so far. Going to get another washer.

    left for the weekend in a hurry and never paid attention that clean cycle was still running on my KENMORE ELITE OASIS HE washing machine. came home just now to see that it's been running for three full days and running hot water through the machine (can't wait to see the bill for that) also, did i mention we have softened water. well, the entire tub turned orange and i don't quite understand why. i'm so angry i could scream. i have no idea how to clean the tub or if my washer is broke or what. i read consumers report back in 2006 when i purchased this set and thought it would last many years, that's why we went with he machine to save money in the long run. guess the joke's on us. how is it that you can't trust consumers report anymore? uggh!. the warranty expired last summer. just lovely.

Bought this washer in 2006. So far 've had the washer repaired 6 times. The motherboard has been replaced 3 times. Sears has not been the most helpful. They said that they will continue repairing the washer until it cannot be fixed. Of courrse o\if this happens before the contract is up, that would be great, otherwise I am out of luck. I will not shop at sears or buy another kenmore product.

I've cleaned my kenmore elite oasis dryer lint trap and ducts, yet it continues to run for extended amounts of time. it is not a case of large loads and I believe it must be a sensor but cannot find...

You must have a week limit switch that keeps resetting itself. Most of the time, the limit switches are by the burner. I wish I had a wiring diagram for it, the I could tell you where it is. Maybe there is someone else out there that can tell you a little more about it. Sorry wish I could help more.

Door latch to Kenmore Elite Oasis gas dryer has come loose. It will not close properly in order for dryer to start. Need instructions on how to repair or replace latch piece on door.

On this washer, the dl code indicates a failed lid lock mechanism. Pressing pause/cancel should reset the controls.

You may have to unplug the unit for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power.

If that doesn't work, the only other solution would be to replace the door lock assembly.

Need to disassemble a kenmore elite oasis dryer


Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.

I need a manual for a Kenmore washer, model # 1102708604.

I have now got the manual for the Kenmore Elite washer and dryer coming in by mail. I had gone to the local Sears store and then to the service center close to home. The service center was able to find the manuals and order them for me.

Thanks for your help.
