Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer

1 Answer


I have misplaced the Operating Manual and I keep getting an F1 showing up at which time I have to stop the machine, raise the lid, redistribute the load and if I am lucky, it will resume washing. Then it repeats the same thing at the rinse cycle. Please help.

To clear up the parts confusion there is a machine control which is the main control and is most likely responsible for the F1 error code. On the actual parts list it is listed as a "control unit assembly, machine and motor" but when it prices it will show electronic control.There is an interface control which is part of the console and contains the buttons you press to select cycles and options. It would not be a part that would cause the F1 error.
For the F1 error only the W10189966 electronic control is responsible and most often changed to correct this problem.
There is a thing or two to try first before replacing the control board if you don't mind a little do-it-yourself.
The image below contains 4 things besides the control that might cause the F1 error code. Three of the potential problem are related to the air dome and pressure hose that connects the air trap to the main control.
One thing to try is to access the pressure hose on the main control and with the tub empty disconnect it and blow through it towards the tub. You should be able to blow without to much effort. You might even hear bubbles from the sump of the washer. Check also for any kinks in the hose that might prevent air pressure from reaching the control.
The 2nd image below shows how to access the pressure switch hose. You won't have to go past removing the console to access the pressure hose.
Remember to unplug the washer first.
The 3rd image shows how to recalibrate the control board. Read through the instructions first and see if this is something you'd be comfortable trying. It may take a time or two to successful but it may help with the F1 error code.

I had the oven on 350 for 45 min. baking potatoes and then the oven beeped twice and F1 showed up on the screen where it had said 350 so I turned the oven off and the time then showed on the screen. ...

The manual says error code "F1" means a problem occurred in the circuitry and suggests pressing "CLEAR" to reset it. If the problem persists, contact a repair guy.
See page 19:
"This oven is equipped with a state of the art electronic oven control. Among its many features is a full time oven circuit diagnostics system. The control constantly monitors its internal circuitry as well as several crucial oven circuits to insure they are all operating correctly. If at any time one of these systems fails, the control will immediately stop operation, and beep continuously (flashing an error code of F1, F3 or F9 in the display window, if equipped). Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press CLEAR to clear the display and stop the beeping. Reprogram oven. If fault recurs, record fault number, press CLEAR and contact an authorized servicer."

F1 is a primary control failure. First unplug the machine,open the control panel. Locate the p-11 connector. Unplug it and re-plug it securely. If the code continues or the machine fails to operate,replace the machine controller.

My f1 light keeps coming on and stops my washer we have lost our manual


F1 on your model means you have an internal short in the machine control board. There are 2 control boards if you take the console off--- the one on the right is the motor control board and the one on the left is the machine control. The part runs about $200 for the part alone.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Operating manual

Unfortunately this is a purchase site. The closest I could get would be for an Activa 220 230 240 . You can download the manual.
Check the picture on no. 7 and see if this isn't your machine.
Hope this helps. Luck!

PS Sewusa is no help.
