Oasis Elite Washer Lid does not lock

Our Oasis Washer was locking but not registering that it was locked last month, but with button pushing I could get it to work. Now when you hit the start button the digital reader says LID and the lid is not locked. Can we determine if the lid lock is borken or is it a sensor? And after we diagnosis, then what?

    We have the same problem. Sears came out THREE times to fix it. One guy ordered the new sensor, the next guy said he couldn't fix it and the third guy refused to install it, telling me that the problem was a symptom of a drainage issue which he swore he fixed. Now, we are stuck here until the middle of next week for a FOURTH guy to come and do what the first guy should have done. The last guy who was here showed me where the manual was stored (inside the side of the machine), but never told me how to open the top half of the machine to get to it. He also showed me the diagnostic, but never showed me how to access it myself. These people are as bad as the Cable/Internet people. Plus, the machine should have never had this issue to start with. I'd steer clear of Sears and this machine if at all possible.

Most likely lid switch/lock ..sensor is part of control bd haven't seen control bd indicate switch problem and it not being the switch

I have the same problem. A friend did too. My friend told me that this washer is a lemon - control panel costs over $600 - NEED TO BUY NEW MACHINE - would be cheaper in long run. Sears should have recalled this Lemon.

What does du code mean


It means your lock latch on the lid is not functioning properly. We had the same issue, and it was because our lid would not lock, and you know you can't run a load without it locking itself. I pulled the part number off of our lid lock latch and replaced it. It works just fine now. Some of the older ones were built with a bad latch the tends to go out, so they changed the part a little and the new ones are supposed to last a very long time. Hope this helps.

KENMORE ELITE OASIS- comes up with a code: DL ( REPEATEDLY - CHECKED THE LOAD- BECAUSE IT STOPS- WON'T RESTART.


On this washer, the dl code indicates a failed lid lock mechanism. Pressing pause/cancel should reset the controls.

You may have to unplug the unit for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power.

If that doesn't work, the only other solution would be to replace the door lock assembly.

Door won't lock on top loading kenmore elite oasis washing machine


1. Disconnect the electrical cord from the wall.
2. Move the washer forward about 12 inches.
3. Lift the lid and grasp the front of the washer top with both hands.
4. Place your knee on the front of the cabinet and pull the washer top forward and up.

The lid lock mechanism is secured to the bottom of the washer top with two screws. Remove those screws and the wiring will be exposed. Unplug the harness from the old mechanism and connect to the new one.

Secure the new mechanism to the washer top and let the top down.

Du error code on a kenmore elite oasis he what does it mean and what can i di to fix the problem


Door unlock failure
Excessive force on door lid is preventing lock bolt from
retracting.
Wash media buildup is preventing lock bolt from retracting.
Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lid is in an
unlocked state. See TEST #8, page 14

Power comes on and all lights come on, but the washer will not start the wash cycle. After the start button is pushed the lid lock will not lock.


That is why the washer won't start. Replace the lid lock. It is there to stop anyone from putting their hands inside of washer when it ia agitating, by stopping power to the motor.DO NOT try ANY attempts to mmake it work!!!! Injury may result
