Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite Oasis

I am having to stay at my washer because the washer keeps giving me an error code of 51. I push "stop" and "start" and that doesn't seem to work. It took my 7 hours to do one load of laundry yesterday. My machine is about 1 1/2 years old.

Do you have a solution?

    I too have encountered the F code issue. Unfortunately my error code results in complete failure. The washer has not operated in approximately 4 weeks. I also learned that the extreme tangling/balling of large items such as sheets and comforters is not due to the way the clothes are loaded but, a problem with the "Impellor". Sears knows there is a major problem with both.



    I have had a local repairman as well as one from "A&E" (Sear's recommended company) take a look at it. I am currently out $169 and am told it will cost $398 to repair the "stator" (F Code issue). No quotes on the impellor as I just learned that it is source behind the tangling. I am also told that Sears is planning a major recall.



    One thing for sure...I will never buy another Kenmore appliance again.

    I reciently tried to fix my oasis kenmore elite he model 110.27062603. I researched on this website (fixYa) and learned that the f 51 code is related to the motor rotor position sensor which sences the motors speed and if it is spinning OK. I read some post describing how the connection to the RPS sensor could be worn or coroded or loose. one of the chats on this subject described how to take the sensor out (which is not that difficult if you are a handy person. (It involves taking the motor appart). So, I followed the instructions and took it out and re-assembled it. Stiil had the same problem. I decided to try changing the macine motor control (the computer for the wasing machine) I still had the same f 51 problem. Then I bought a new RPS sensor, and that didn't work either. Finally I kept trying to figure out how to open the top of the clothes washer to look for stuck clothing between the stationionary drum that holds the water and the rotating drum. Someone had described opening the top, but I didn't know how to do this. I did a search on google on how to remove the drum, and there was a photo of the place to pry to open the top of the washer. there are 2 tabs that you have to press in on while lifting up on the top. use a putty knife or a flat screw driver. the place to press is from the outside, on the front of the washer, about 6 inches from each corner.
    So, I opened the top cover of the washer, and then was able to un- snap the plastic cover over the drum and I found a bra that was causing enough friction between the drums that it would cause the RPS sensor to think there was a problem.
    So, Now the machine works fine again.

I have an kenmore elite =sm9711174. the spin cycle does not always start. i have to manually spin a couple times then it starts, but now does not spin fast. only slow. do i need a new belt?


this washer does not have a belt. The motor is a direct drive. it should give you a error code at time if it is unable to spin. some codes are F-51, F-dl, and UL. from the sounds of it the main board may need to be replaced part#W10189966.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis washing machine has error code "UL" while in rising cycle and stop. Can you tell me what is the problem and how to solve it.


My Kenmore Elite Oasis washing machine will drain but not spin and it keeps jumping back and forth to different time cycles. It continually reads "UL" and I keep trying to adjust and balance the load but it does not help.

F51 error


Hello, the F51 code is a motor rotor position sensor failure. It's best to call in the warranty service as there is a bunch of tests that need to be run to determine if it's the sensor or control board. If the tech wasn't any help, contact the store for a replacement.

Thanks
