Kenmore Oasis becomes unbalanced all the time

Its a tricky repair. there is a spring that sits on the base of the motor. You need to remove the pulley and plastic gears to gain access. This spring is slipping causing drum not to spin correctly. Remove it and clean properly with solvent . If broken replace. Reinstall and retry.

I pushed the start button and got some clicking noise, then I got an alarm sounding beep with a "F" flashing, then another alarm sounding beep with a "dl" flashing...which continued until I cancelled

If you give a specific model I could get a manual and see what i can find out but what i will do is direct you to the Kenmore questions line which is, (one last thing try unplugging the washing machine and then plug it back in maybe that will reset it, if you still get the error look below.)

Product questions
Call 1-888-KENMORE (1-888-536-6673).

also if you do not have the manual for the product you can obtain an online version here.

if you look on the right hand side of the page you will see in bold letters.

Find Owners Manual

just enter your model number in there and look through the manual for the troubleshooting section and then error codes.

Door locks, but will not fill up with water. Alarm sounds and lights flash once every minute or so

There is a rectangular magnet attached on the inside of the drawer for the detergent. Located on the right hand side near the front of the drawer. This magnet had come loose. Some glue and caulking worked well and the washer is working fine now. Meant to post this weeks ago.

Washer full and then stops and gives a beep while flashing F 51

On Kenmore F51 means Motor RPS Failure, the motor is not spinning or the motor sensor detects a fault.First unplug the power cord for one hour or so to check if it is a jammed sensor, and see if reset.

I don't remember what an f-du code stands for, but I will give you the next best thing. There is a list of the error codes and steps to correct the problem right inside your machine.

Remove the lower front panel. (there are 3 #20 torx screws on the bottom of it holding it on). Once you remove the panel, turn it over. There in a sealed plastic envelope will be your technical manual and trouble shooting steps to correct them.

Good luck and drop me a note if there's anything else you need.
