I have a Kenmore Oasis HE Model 110.27087604 washing machine. When I run the washer the Cycle Signal Volume LED's will sart flashing and beeping constantly. Occassionally, while the washer is off the entire panel will do what appears to be a diagnostic, which puts a bit of water in the drum. I recently was greeted by an F2 error code. The washer runs fine and cleans wonderfully. I was wondering if there was a "common" cause for all the problems? It appears as though these washers all have bad control boards but they aren't recalled......Any thoughts would be appreciated.

This is a common and very well known problem with the Oasis. You will need to replace the operator interface board inside the control panel to resolve this issue. The board is located directly behind the control knob. If you post back with your model number, I can research a part number for you, give you info on where you can order a replacement, and give you guidance on how to replace the board yourself.
Moister can get in between the contacts,is it in a high moister environment? Try using a hair dryer on the panel to dry it out.Also unplug it to reset.

The F02 error code indicates keypad/user interface failure. Most of the time, this is caused by a problem in the keypad/user interface. It can sometimes be caused by a failed control board.You could have an intermittent problem such as a stuck key or contact. As long as the F02 is not displayed, the washer should work normally. You can continue to use it when the F02 is not displayed. It is still safe to use the washer. Sometimes this problem is caused by a loose wiring harness connection between the keypad/user interface control board and the machine control board. The F2 error code on this washer indicates a stuck button on the user interface control board. The procedure for accessing the control boards on this washer is shown in the image below. I recommend unplugging the washerand checking the wire harness connection from the user interface control board to the machine control board. Try unplugging the connections and then plugging them back in a few times. Make sure that they are plugged in correctly and then reassemble and test the washer. If the F2 is still displayed, then the user interface control board will need to be replaced.

Try this, with power off press spin for five seconds on and five seconds off until 88 appears in the display. After this either it will start with a c1 or it will flash an error code, write down the code and within five seconds press spin again to advance so auto diagnostics will start, if your display is bad F 2 will pop up quickly. Let me know, SearsTechToo
This error only shows in diagnostic mode, with power off choose any buttons except stop and power, press in intervals 5 seconds on and 5 seconds off until 88 appears and all light light up. If the user panel is faulted F 2 will flash in the display, press the same button you used to start diagnostics to jump to the next error code and once through 88 will flash and diagnostics will start. Sometimes once F2 flashes and the machine has not been repaired it will stick at that mode.
