How do I get the F1 code to go away? It pops up before the machine will start washing and then again before it will start rinsing. (Kenmore Elite) Oasis HE


It sounds like the error code F1 appears whenever the machine is filling. The machine/motor control senses an error in the signal coming the pressure sensor circuit. Either there is an air leak and/or moisture is present in the pressure sensor hose, lint and/or flashing in the air dome hose connection port, or the machine/motor control is malfunctioning.

Remove the three screws from the rear of the console assembly then pull console towards the front of washer to hinge it open and remove console. The machine/motor control assembly is located on the right hand side of the machine that is enclosed in a casing with a clear tube/hose connected to it.

The clear tube/hose is the pressure hose. Check to make sure that everything connected to the machine/motor control assembly is properly attached and fully inserted and the pressure hose has no air leak, kinks, or moisture.

Turn off the water supply to the washer and disconnect the hot and cold water hoses from the rear of the washer then remove the end of the drain hose from where it is installed. Remove the eight screws from the rear panel and remove the panel.

Inspect the pressure hose for evidence of water then replace the hose if water or moisture is present. Inspect the air dome hose connection port for lint or flashing.

Use a small round device such as a small screwdriver to ensure that there is nothing blocking the air dome outlet on the tub.

Replace the machine/motor control assembly if and only if verified that there are no issues with the air pressure system. Remove all the wire connections to the machine/motor control then remove the screw holding it to the console tray. Two plastic legs on the rear of the machine/motor control assembly are fitted into the console tray. Lift the front of the control assembly to pivot it out from the console tray. Reinstall the new machine/motor control assembly then secure it to the console tray and reconnect the wire harnesses.

NOTE: It is a good idea to take note of the wire harness connections before disconnecting them to prevent messing them up upon reconnection.

Washer overfills


This is caused by either a washer fill level sensor tube being blocked or the pressure switch it acts on being defective, the water level switch is next to the timer control on the top of the washer panel.

The washer will start but will eventually have an "F1" error. This usually happens when water is running into the washer.


This is a problem associated with the machine/motor control assembly and/or the pressure sensor system. Either the machine/motor control assembly is at fault or it is sensing an error in the signal from the air pressure sensor circuit. Unplug the machine for half an hour or so to forcibly reset the machine/motor control assembly and eliminate the possibility of a simple electronic glitch.

Remove the three screws from the rear of the console assembly, if unplugging the machine does not resolve the issue, then pull console towards the front of washer to hinge it open and remove console. The machine/motor control assembly is located on the right hand side of the machine that is enclosed in a casing with a clear tube/hose connected to it.

Insufficient water supply in washer


hi friend,
step 1
Remove the nozzle and clean it with a nozzle cleaning kit. You may have a partially plugged spray nozzle. If you cannot clean it well enough or if it is worn, you will need to replace it.
  • Step 2 Check the unloader and repair or replace it. The unloader is used to relieve the water pressure within the pump whenever spray flow is blocked. It is generally located above the water inlet. It may be worn down or restricted in some way. In addition, air in the hose may cause pulsating. You can purge the air from the hose by pulling the trigger and allowing the water to flow.
  • Step 3 Check the inlet hose and filter. You may have a restricted or leaking water hose. If this is the case, clean or replace the hose.
  • Step 4 Secure an adequate water supply. You may have a cavitation or insufficient water. If this is not the problem, you may have worn pump packings. Inspect them and replace them as needed.
  • Step 5 Inspect valves and clean or replace them as needed. You may have fouled inlet or discharge valves. The inlet valve allows water to enter the manifold. When the inlet valve closes, the plunger thrusts the water downward, causing the discharge valve to open and release the water. It is located on the discharge side of the pump. If these valves are fine, then your valve spring may be broken and need replacing.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • Always check manufucturer recommendations before making adjustments to your pressure washer.

    Kenmore 90 series Water pressure turning up and down


    it will switch from hot to cold and back and forth trying to regulate the temp. You probrbly have more pressure in your cold water line than your hot or vise versa. This will cause it to seem to pulse. Dave www.washermd.com

    I have a Karcher K3.97 pressure washer. I think I'm losing pressure somewhere because the motor surges on and off every few seconds. No obvious leaks though. Could there be an internal leak through a...


    Dear Sir(s),
    The majority of power washers have a spill valve or sometimes called a Control Valve. This spill valve will contract when the gun is closed. As it contracts it switches off a micro switch. Also at the base of the spill valve, an opening opens to let water circulate. Now if this Spill Valve is defective, it will make the machine lose pressure and it will make the machine switch on and off also. I sometimes service the Spill valve and lubricate with special Silicon grease. But if the end of the Spill Valve is not closing correctly, then I suggest that the Spill Valve be renewed. To come to see the Spill Valve, you have to open the cover. Most probably you see wires or a thick wire attached to the head. The part attached to the head contains the micro-switch. Remove the Miro-Switch holder and then you might see screws holding the jammed or faulty spill valve. If you cannot pull the spill valve out, try attaching water and sometimes you can switch on the machine for a second...and with the pressure,...the spill valve will be spitted out.
    The switching of ON and OFF due to a faulty Spill Valve, will for sure damage the capacitor. A damaged spill valve gives all these symptoms. Machine going on and off while gun closed and while gun opened, and added to these,... pressure gets less. One small other hint....if all is OK with the machine, and when spraying the machine goes on and off....this is due to a blocked nozzel.
    Regards,
    Fulltech.

    Karcher Pressure washer


    Hi
    don't know if this will help, but when I use mine, to start the pressure up I have to turn the nozzle to fine spray then turn it to the power spray and it works every time, shouldn't have to do this but I got it for nothing.
