Cycle stops - F error code

I own a White Kenmore Elite Oasis™ 4.6 cu. ft. Canyon Capacity™ Washer, Sears item# 02627072000 Mfr. model# 27072. The cycle keeps stopping in the middle, giving me an F error code, not follwed by a number. This washer is less than a year old.

    I'm having the very same problem. It's very frustrating because I have a family of 8 and cannot do without a washer. Someone please offer some advice! The machine starts going but in just a few minutes, stops and starts flashing an "F". No numbers with it. Does anyone know what this means because I do not have my owners guide anymore.

    I'm experiencing the same problem w/ my washer. It starts off fine but within a few minutes it locks up and starts beeping. It also flashes the letter "F" alternating w/ the time remaining for the wash cycle. There are no numbers, just an "F", which I am starting to think is very appropriate for how I feel when this happens. And of course I can't find the manual. Any help is appreciated.

I am having the same problem with the "F" flashing and a beep but no numbers. The manual only says to hit the stop button then the start again. It doesn't give you a problem. It then says if this does not work to call a repair man. Mine is only two years old and we loved. I have never had any problem with it but every review I have read says differently and they seem to happen around the two year mark. It seems they have a malfunction timer that goes off at the two year mark. If you find a solution please post again.

Kenmore Elite Oasis washer does not lock


First, OL/UL stands for "Overload", so in other words, the washer things the tub is too hard to move because it's overloaded and the motor is struggling or the unit is way out of balance causing the washer to struggle. The most common problem is a nut below the inner tub that needs to "float". Floating is when the tub fills up with water to a certain level the inner basket will rise about 1 inch from the center agitator. What this does is disengage the basket from the motor so that the agitator can rotate independently from the basket. If the basket does not float then when it tries to agitate the whole basket will turn back and forth at the same speed as the agitator and this will cause the OL/UL error code.

Kenmore Oasis HE model 110.27086604. I get the UL code on every wash. Never finishes cycle. Load is not too large, will do this with 2 shirts. If this is a suspension problem can I fix it?


Yes you will have to replace all four balancers (four corners). Same thing happened to us. We have five kids also and you can only imagine how much fun that was to do just two shirts or pants at a time. Ours was still under warranty so we had Sears fix it. Took quite a bit of time, but it is fixed now.

F-51 code on kenmore elite oasis washer - how to prevent and or fix


Please see the following Whirlpool Cabrio installation and service manual, the Oasis is essentially the same washer.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/409753510a90c8be852571e90073421b/$FILE/8178583.pdf

The F and 51 code relates to the motor rotor.

"F then 51 flashes when there is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) failure. See TEST #3."

The "test #3 is a bit complicated but can be completed if you are reasonably comfortable with test equipment.

you'll need to investigate further. It may even mean bringing in a professional to be sure the vibration damper rods are ok - to prevent future and costlier problems.

110.27082602 kenmore oasis elite


The F50 error code indicates that the RPS (rotor position sensor) detects no motor rotation. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, you could have an item caught between the outer tub and the inner spin basket. A toy or other item underneath the washer could also prevent the basket from spinning and would result in this F50 code.

If the basket spins freely, you could have a wiring failure that would prevent the motor from spinning.
