Kenmore elite oasis (canyon capacity) top load washer

I've had the washer about 1and a half years and do about 4 loads of laundry a week. about a month ago, the digital display panel started freaking out. the green light showing the water temp would go up and down the choices but you couldn't stop it anywhere. Now when i choose "normal wash" and try to change the water temp, it doesn't let me. Most of the time when i hit start, nothing happens, so i hit stop and then start the "power on" all over again. Most times i have to unplug the unit and plug it back in. It's like it is haunted. after i've unplugged it, the 'power' light comes on and the time setting for the washload comes up. i've had to leave it unplugged till i need to use it becuase it comes on all by itself for no apparent reason. do you know what causes this? can a homeowner fix it with the right part? pls advise. thanks. I can't believe i spent almost $1000 on a washing machine and it's breaking down after only 16 months.....

    My Oasis Elite washing machine is 13 months old and it acts like it's possessed! While the machine is filling, the water level will just go berserk....it keeps rotating and beeping. Sometimes I can get it to stop but only for a little while. After the load is done and I've emptied the machine, the Clothes Clean button will light up and start beeping. That's when I have to unplug the machine. Very frustrating to spend the $$, and then have the machine wear out in one year's time. I swore I would never buy another Kenmore after my last lemony machine, but got talked into this one....what a fool I was.

The button interface on the console has failed and will need replacing. Read owners manual for possible limited warranties on electronic components.

What does oL mean when the load is over? We just moved into a place with the washer and the clothes are soaking wet after the load is over? It's the kenmore elite.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. oL flashes when the machine/motor control detects a load size that exceeds the washer’s capacity. Open the door lids to clear display, remove excess laundry, then restart the cycle. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

My Kenmoore Elite Oasis HE Canyon Capacity allways stops because it's has the (uL) unbalanced load. After re-distributing the laundry it almost immediately stops again with the unbalanced load signal. What...


It appears your load balance sensor has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Kenmore Oasis HE Canyon Capacity F1 code?


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

LINK: http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wfgstgtftbtkrrdxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/gfsfgfsgqxgfqtqtgwf/1/1303472/5961857/image55806img-or.gif



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.
