Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Brand new Kenmore Elite Oasis washer leaks when on sheets and towel cycle and may in other cycles. After repair man was out and just stared at the machine, we requested that Sears deliver another one to us-the repairman said he thought it needed a new tub ring and when he went out to his car to call technical support, he came back and said it was our water pressure-too strong. We adjusted our water pressure down to the lowest we could go and it didn't make a difference. after they brought the second machine, the same thing happened on the sheets and towel cycle. Sear claimed they have never had this problem...Any ideas???

    Hi,



    I have unfortunatly owned this washer for two years. It just stared to pee all over my floor too. On day one when it was delivered, the pannell did not work, so out came washer number two brand new. Within two months, I hear a rattle when spinning. Called repair, payed 165.00 to get 18cents worth of change taken out of my pump. (this was not covered under warranty). Apparantly the change slips by the basket and into the pump and blocks the water exiting, so it goes all over the floor instead. Now even though we are pretty good about checking pockets, it is rattling again and leaking all over the floor. HELLO? Did the engineers not know that on ocasion things get left in pockets? Old washers just caught it in the basket where you could reach in and scoop it out. I HATE this washer and I paid > 1,000.00 for it. I have completely lost faith in Sears. I also had a refridgerator ice door problem that they had no idea of how to fix, and I had to buy a kit and repair it myself. DUH!

Loud noise during the spin cycle


Did you have an oil leak at the bottom of the washer? If yes, chances are your transmission oil leaked and your transmission needs changing or repairing.

I have a kenmore elite oasis washing machine model # 110 2706201. during the sheets/towels cycle i keep getting an error f51. what needs to be done to correct this?


Call your Sears customer service representative and not repair people. Our repair representative for Sears in Houston flately denied there was a problem. I called the right people and took care of that. Make sure you give them the model and it manufacturing ID number. No matter what they tell you it is a defective board made by Whirlpool who also made your machine. It is covered under a warranty( recall) . If you Google oasis kenmore problems your computer will light up. It took me a while, but they fixed mine. Two weeks later it was another problem. I spent 1200 new in 2007. We have hade no less than 6 service calls. My old washing machine is being used by my inlaws and is 15 years old. The way sears has handled this they have done a great deal of damage to thier loyal customers.

(Kenmore Elite Oasis 27087 Stainless Steel Top Load Washer) Is it a good washing machine? Worth to get it?


No!! Don't get it! We have had the machine for a few years and have had several problems with it. We constantly get error codes when its mid cycle and it won't complete the cycle. I have actually gotten to know my Sears repair man he has come out so many times. Our current problem is that small items of clothing slip through the crack when we are unloading the machine. They are then trapped under the drum and cause problems including major mildew smells and eventually the machine stops working, The repair man comes out and removes the drum, pulls out the mildew sock or whatever and then its ok. Very poor design!

What does a code f51 stand for on a kenmore oasis elite washer


F-51 ERROR CODE IS DEALING WITH THE SPIN CYCLE. THE CONTROL DOES NOT DETECT IT SPINNING.THE RPS SENSOR ON THE BOTTOM OF THE UNIT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN OFF AND PUT BACK ON ABOUT 10 TIMES. SOUNDS WEIRD BUT USUALLY FIXES IT. THEY DO HAVE A KIT ALSO FOR THE RPS TO BE REPLACED. UNPLUGGING FOR A FEW HOURS IS A TEMP FIX.
