Question about Kenmore Elite Oasis 27052 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer stops mid cycle!

My washing machine always stops right after starting the cycle, the digital read out flashes F1, usually takes a few presses of the start and stop button for it to run through the wash cycles, then does the same thing again as it switches cycles from was to rinse. Anyone have a quick solution for this, or is time to call the repair guy??

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.

While filling it will flash an F1 code and stop. If I cancel the cycle and press start again it will usually go ahead with that cycle until the nest fill up. What is an F1 code?


This is a pressure sensor issue on the machine control board .The only sure fix is to replace the machine control board which has been updated numerous times.( whirlpool is very aware of the problems) At one time whirlpool was assisting owners who had this concern .

The Whirlpool Cabrio and Kenmore Oasis (same machine) are infamous for this problem. Depending on the serial number you may be entitled to a new control board installed for free under a recall program. Call Whirlpool for eligibility. I had just had mine replaced last week for free and it runs fine now.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE getting F1 code. What does this indicate?


your board is confused and cannot read water level, very easy fix, pull off console(three screws on rear) and remove clear hose on right side of main control. blow into with your mouth and clear tube. reconnect hose and try, if F1 continues main control will need to be replaced, Sears is offering this for free if your unit falls within a certain serial number range, Also a biggie.....You must use he soap only with the oasis....no exceptions.....

WASHING CYCLE STOPS AFTER A MINUTE


Can you skip through the programme to drain? Press pause button. then press start to move the lights down to the empty cycle. leave to finish.

If you have already tried this, I can explain how to put machine into engineer test mode, which will then give out a fault code to identify problem.
