Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer
The washer keeps beeping.
The user interface panel seems to be susceptible to interference off the power line. in my case, i had incessant beeping during the wash and sometimes even random start ups but when i removed an air wick air freshener from the same power line, the washer immediately worked fine again.

This is a common problem with the Oasis. The problem is the User Interface Control board behind the control panel. There's a relay on the board that shorts out and causes the washer to randomly (and constantly) beep. This can also occur with the washer turned off. Since the circuit board is not serviceable it is recommended that you replace the control board. Searspartsdirect.com carries replacement parts for your washer. Just type in the model number and search under the console heading for the user interface board. If you are usure which part, I'm talking about, please post back with your model number and I can assist you. I hope this helps.

The F54 fault code indicates that the control board senses high motor current.
This can be caused by excessive friction in the spin basket.
With the washer off, open the lid and see if the basket spins freely.
If not, you may need to remove the basket and check for an item stuck between the spin basket and the outer washer tub.
The second and third images show procedures for removing the basket on the Oasis washer depending on whether you have an impeller or agitator in your model.
If the basket spins okay, then you can follow the technical troubleshooting described in the first image.
This may help you determine the cause of your washer problem.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I'm pretty sure I know what you're referring to and contrary to what has been posted by another FixYa memeber, it likely is not the motor assembly...more often it is just an item stuck under the basket/drive hub as most with REAL experience would know.
In fact I can explain what needs to be done to gain access and repair though it is pretty involved (via removing the tub...it's pretty easy once you see how...much easier with the manual and some guidance).
As I alluded to, it is most likely the drive/spin basket hub under the inner basket (spin basket) and it is being jammed by a sock, undergarment or the like, but you'll need to remove the complete outer tub assembly unfortunately.
This almost always manifest's in the "oL" error code (possibly even error "UL" & "F51") and prevents proper wash or spin...though it usually will certainly fill and drain O.K...unless the error appear's many times it may simply go into a shut down/no action (F1) mode.
I can provide a follow up post on how to do this, including pictures and step by step guidance if you think you are capable, or I alternatively can provide you a service manual if you post an email address.
I'll watch for your reply. Thank's for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.
