Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

F1 Code Started shortly after warranty expired. This frequent failure should be the subject of a class action suit UNLESS Whirpool / Sears does the right thing and makes these boards available at what it cost them ??$10??? They are making a fortune off a poorly designed product.

    My machine isn't even a year old.  The F code comes on and I can't even get through the cycle.  All of these complains should have the company calling a recall.  I am going to continue this complaint.

    I called the Sears recall hotline (800)659-7026 and found out that the control board has been recalled....they are supposedly coming to replace it in 7-10 days.

Remember this,if you can get a used 10-15 year old MAYTAG washer that needs every part replaced .You replace every part, and you will then have the BEST machine that was ever made,and YOU have it.

We bought ours in 2006 when they first came out. Paid a thousand dollars, my life savings. I trusted sears. The washer has been a nightmare every since and it is broken again. We are very angry with sears and want to start a class action law suit against them. I am researching ways to do this. Anyone interested in joining me

F1 warning light keep coming on at the start of the washing cycl


Aside from replacing the brain with another one identical to the one that died, which will most likely die again, you can do what the people mentioned below are doing.

Quoted from another site:

If you own a Kenmore Oasis (built by Whirlpool) or Whirlpool Cabrio washer, and you are getting the "F1" error code...or similar codes, and nothing you do fixes the problem, here is what you should do.
Join the class action lawsuit, and sign the petition.
Here is the class action law suit info. Remember, these Kenmore Washers (built by Whirlpool) are basically the same machine as the Whirlpool Cabrio:

"Thank you for your interest in pursuing a lawsuit against Sears relating to the Kenmore HE4t and HE3t Washing Machines. This lawsuit is currently being handled by the law firm of Seeger Weiss, LLP. Sheller, P.C. is co-counsel on the case. Your inquiry submission will be forwarded to Seeger Weiss, and you will be contacted by a Seeger Weiss representative shortly."

"Once again, thank-you for your interest. Any questions may be directed to Jonathan Shub at jshub@seegerweiss.com."

I have the exact same problem with my Oasis that everyone else is describing.....when the machine is started, I get an F1 error code. I can push stop and start, usually 4-5 times and the machine starts...


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.

Oasis 110.273 "F1" error on inital and rinse cycle fill. Have already checked to make sure all connections were secure.


The F1 error on the Oasis is a known issue. Sears recalled the computer module because it's defective and produces this error along with F71 code errors. Unfortunately, unless your serial number meets their current criteria, they won't honor the recall because it expired on 08/31/2009 for some serial numbers. Best bet is to call and find out if they'll honor it. If you talk nice & originally bought it from Sears, they might. They did for me. But then we had to replace the RPS. Now the stator. This machine is an expensive piece of junk.

My oasis he top load washer is now flashing F1 error code. I tried calling sears and all i got was "your warranty has expired, we can send a technician out but can't help you over the phone. any idea what...


The Kenmore Oasis and Whirlpool Cabrio washers are basically the same machine.

Following is the Whirlpool service manual for the Cabrio.

The F 1 points to a primary control failure.

We are getting the F1 error code also. Is it the circuit board??


I have the same overpriced piece of junk and have the f-1 code also . It means you have a primary control failure . Also known as the computer brain module . It cost anywhere from 165.00 -400.00 depending on where you buy it . It will only gets better ,sometimes I get an f-51 code which is a motor rotor sensor failure but could be a false code because somehow this thing will **** clothing under the drum and cause drain problems as well as floods . I got the service manual offline for the repairs , but you may also complain to whirlpool because they are aware of the problem and they may send a repairmen even if its out of warranty . Best bet don`t buy anymore whirlpool junk
