Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

When I load my washer and turn it on, the F1 code come up after a few seconds of water. In order to fix it, I have to turn the washer power off and on again. It usually works after doing this one time, but I don't want to break the machine by continuing to override it if there is a problem. What does this code mean and how should I procede?

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.

    This problem has been found to be inherent with this model including its Whirlpool (Cabrio) and Maytag (Bravos) counterparts. It is due to the design of the water level control system, the pressure transducer, which has been integrated with the machine/motor control assembly. It has been found that issues with the pressure transducer including the pressure hose results in the flashing of the fault code F1. Air leaks and moisture in the pressure hose and lint or flashing in the air dome can result in signal error being sent to the machine/motor control assembly and hence the fault code F1 which is according to the service manual, a machine/motor control fault. You may observe that this fault code appears whenever water runs into the machine.

    Whirlpool, the manufacturer of these models, has issued a bulletin regarding this issue and suggested the necessary actions in identifying the real cause of this problem and how to address it. Click on the link below for the troubleshooting and repair details.

    F1 error


    Hi,


    The "F1" error code on the Whirlpool cabrio is quite common, and generally has to do with the control board. Replacing the control panel may resolve this issue. However, I believe Whirlpool is aware of the F1 issue with the Cabrio, and is fixing some machines for free. Please call 1-800-253-1301 for more details and see if you are eligible for a free repair.


    Thank you !!

    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.

    F1 appears on my machine within a few minutes when the machine is started. I have to stand there for a few minutes & push pause/start again. What does F1 means


    I actually had the same problem and read some other blogs and found that this is a control board issue. Whirlpool actually had a recall on these boards and should cover the part and labor to fix. I called them today at 1-800-253-1301 and they are coming out to fix my washer this week. When you call they just need the model number and the serial number. Both can be found just inside the lid on your washer. Good luck!

    I turn on the top load washer ,it starts to fill


    The FL error code means:
    Flood Condition:
    FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

    With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

    Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

    This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

    There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.

    LF Error code: LF stands for long fill and occurs when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on.

    All washers are designed to operate with a water supply pressure of 20-100 PSI. When the pressure drops below 20 PSI the washer can have the following problems:

    * Slow Fill- low water pressure reduces the speed at which water flows into the machine.
    o Verify the pressure at all other water sources in the house (i.e. sinks, showers, etc..). If you find other places where the pressure is low, the problem is not with the machine but with the water supply.
    * Continuous Fill- The valve may not fully seat under 20 PSI which would allow for a constant flow even when the machine is not supposed to be filling.
    o Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house.
    * dispenser- Needs a minimum amount of pressure to function. May dispense constantly, at the wrong time, or not at all.
    o A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.

    Things you can check :

    * Are the Hot and Cold water faucets turned on
    * Are the water hoses kinked
    o Make sure all the hose are straight and able to flow water
    * Are the screen inside the water valve plugged
    o Inlet valve should be free of debris and rust.
    o Turn off water and remove the inlet hoses from washer.
    o Remove any accumulated film or particles.
    o Assure rubber washers are in the end of each inlet hose.
    o Reinstall hoses, turn on water and check for leaks.

    Error codes can be caused by a Power Surge or other electrical anomaly,attempt to return the washer to operation by following the Hard Reset procedure below.

    1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
    2. Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
    3. Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the display.
    4. Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts
