Question about Kenmore Elite Oasis 27052 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

F1 appears after you press the start button

Once you hit the start button, it will go for about 30 seconds, and then F1 appears on the screen. Then, you have to press the start button multiple times before it will operate. We called out a technician who said that it could either be a kinked hose (it wasn't) or the mother board was "gone". A replacement mother board is upwards of $400.00, and he recommend that we replace this 3 year old washer. He went on to say that this is a common error and that a replacement mother board could yield the same results. Is there another fix or work around to this problem?

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.

    hi hope you are well, there could be a few issues that caused this, if you have another system where u can test that all components are working then try to do that, if you already did and nothing happened. Unplug the system and remove the battery. Hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then try powering up -- if it won't, the motherboard is faulty, and you'll need to replace it am really sorry could not be of further help..

    How do i reset my garmin colorado 300


    First you'll also need to download file below. Once you've downloaded this file unzip it into a directory such as C:\Garmin on your PC.

    On your PC click the Start menu, select "Run..." and type "cmd" where it says open. A black window with a DOS command prompt should appear. At the command prompt enter the following command:

    > cd c:\Garmin
    At the next command prompt type the following command without hitting enter:

    > Updater.exe 066101000230.rgn
    Now back to your GPS.

    Press and hold the "up button" on the Rock'n Roller while you plug the CO into the USB cable. Wait 10-20 seconds while still holding the "up button". You should see a Garmin banner and nothing else. At this point you can hit enter on your PC to execute the updater command. Once the updater runs you will need to select you Colorado under USB and hit enter. This should perform the update (you may get a warning about loading an older version of software). You should receive a message that the update was successful and the Colorado will reboot.

    Once the reboot is complete the "Loader" banner should appear near the top of the CO screen after about 30 seconds. Release the "up button" and on your PC you should be able to see the Colorado as a USB drive.

    You can now attempt to fix the files on your Colorado which are preventing it from starting. If you've recently added or changed files these are good places to start. Deleting gpx files and/or replacing map img files with your backup copies may resolve the issue as well.

    What does error Oxc05d0281 mean


    Hi,

    This error message means" ink system failure " and to resolve this issue please follow these troubleshooting steps:

    Unplug the printer and wait 30 seconds for power to discharge.
    2. Plug in the printer.
    3. Hold the CANCEL and OK buttons simultaneously, and keep them depressed while you hit the ON button. This resets the printer.
    4. When the printer turns on, if you still get the error message, it's OK. Then perform the steps listed

    1?Press and hold the “*” key
    2?Press the “#” key and release both keys,Display should say “Enter Special Key Combo”
    3?Press and release in sequence the “1”, “2” and “3” buttons
    4?Press and release the right arrow button until the display says “System Configuration Menu”.
    5?Press and release the “OK” button.
    6?Display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to “Hardware failure
    7?Press and release the “OK” button.
    8?Display should say “Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear”.
    9?Press and release the “OK” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue”.
    10?Press and release the “CANCEL” button as many times as necessary, so that, either the “Welcome to Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System Failure” screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.
    11?Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
    12?Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer
    13?Turn the unit on. The printer may display message “USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER” followed by “PRESS OK TO CONTINUE”. Press OK. The Printer will start the “ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS”. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.

    After you perform the steps listed above, when you are at the step at the end where you are pressing the cancel button until you get to the WELCOME screen, if at some point you see a message, “Inproper shutdown, hit OK”, go ahead and hit OK and the Welcome screen should appear.
    One thing that is nice about this method is that it doesn't use up all your ink doing a recalibration.
    The error message should not pop up so try to print a self test Press Setup menu on the All-in-One then scroll using the arrow key and select Print Report then select Self Test Report.

    all the best
