To Access/replace the CCU:

#1

Unplug the Whirlpool Cabrio power cord from the wall outlet. Turn off the water supply to the washing machine. Pull the washer away from the wall so that you can access the screws behind the control console. Remove the hex head screws securing the control console to the washer with a nut driver. The screws are on the lower rear edge of the control console.
#2

Lift the control console up, and rotate the console forward so that the face of the console is resting on the top of the washer. Locate the interface board cable connector to the right of the plastic tube on the back of the console. Pull the end of the connector straight out of the control console. The primary machine control is the box that the plastic tube connects.
#3

Place small pieces of masking tape around the nine wires connecting to the primary machine console. Label the wire locations onto the masking tape with a pencil. Grasp each wire at the connector with your fingers, and pull the wires away from the primary control. Pull the plastic tube out of the primary control.
#4

Locate the nut toward the bottom of the primary control. Remove the nut with a nut driver. Lift the front of the primary control slightly, and slide it down to disengage the retaining clips. Pull the primary control out of the control console. Insert the new primary control into the control console. Slide the primary control up to engage the lower clips. Secure the primary control to the console with the single hex head screw.
#5

Push each of the wire connectors into their respective positions on the primary control until they lock into place. Push the plastic tube hose over the port on the right side of the primary control. Remove the small pieces of masking tape from the wires.
#6

Position the control console back upright on the top of the washer. Secure the control console to the washer with the three hex head retaining screws. Slide the washer back against the wall. Turn on the water supply and plug the washer into the wall outlet.

Hello my is David a have a problem with my kenmore elite oasis 27062 when i start off to wash it rinse the water to cloth then it lock it self but when enter the spinning phrase it stop it display a error...


the error code is an F1 . your washer is made by whirlpool and for them they had a recall for any washer that had that issue. what you will need is a new main control board and wire harness. here is the rework page whirlpool gave all of the service companies. http://servicematters.com/docs/doc_main.htm hope this helps. they should cover the cost of repair. one thing to check before you do all this is with no clothes in the washer spin the tub by hand just to make sure it spins freely. cause if clothes get between the inner and outer tub it can cause the F1 error code as well.

Washer starts to fill then stops /now warsher wont wash


I too was having the same problem and I almost paid to have it repaired, which would have cost a few hundred dollars, thanfully I called the recall line after reading some of the other post on here and my machine was elgible for a upgraded on the control panel so didn' t cost anything for us. Sears told us that the F1 code is a miscommunication in the control panel, basically the machine is confused and don't know what to do so it stops and gives that code. Hope it helps!

Code F1 Appears


It is the RPS sensor, cover by whirlpool. Get your model number and serial number ready and call the 800 number on the machine, tell them you heard it here that it is a recall so you don't get the run around. The sensor is located on the stater motor and comes with a new harness and cost you nothing.

F1 code coming up on my Oasis HE washer


YES! Serious problem...more annoying than anything else. Wait until your machine stops at the spin cycle and displays "F1" again. We just had a repair tech out today and received a quote of $384+ to fix/replace the circuit board. Kenmore & Sears are fully aware of this problem and have issued a recall on a model that is one digit off of the model I have yet they will not do anything about this even though it is the same problem. These machines are huge dogs!

WASHER WILL START TO SPIN BUT THEN STOP


there is a motor kit to replace the motor on your washer. it the new style motor does solve the problem but it is expensive considering the cost of the washer itself
