Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have the same problem... could you send me instructions, too?

My Kenmore Oasis washer is beeping and the SOIL LEVEL light just keeps traveling the options "on its own" and will not allow me to select a level. I found the part on the Sears website.... just wondering if you could email me step-by-step instructions on how to go about replacing the control panel part. email me at heyitsnan at comcast.net . Thanks!

    Sounds great! I want to thank you soooo much for your instructions. I will call the recall hotline first to see what's up with that! Thank you, thank you!!! Take care. Nancy

Okay...Fixya discourages us from having direct contact with customers outside the realm of this website, so I hope you will accept my reply in this forum.

If you are talking about replacing the operator interface board, its very simple. Just follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. Remove the three screws in the back of the console.
3. With the screws loosened, the console will come of by lifting from the back first. Use care not to damage the small wire harness under the console.
4. Remove the wire harness from the User Interface board and remove the knob (by pulling) from the front panel. Lay the entire control panel face down on a soft surface (like a stack of towels).
5. Carefully remove the white plastic cover plate that is installed over the control board.
6. Once the cover is removed, carefully remove the old interface board by prying gently on the series of tabs around the perimeter of the board. There may also be some mounting screws to remove as well.
7. With the old board removed, carefully install the new board by inserting the control knob shaft through the hole first. Then, gently snap the board in place, making sure all the tabs around the perimeter of the board are in place. Reinstall any small mounting screws. NOTE: Do not handle the surface of the board with your hands. Handle the edges only, to avoid electrostatic discharge from your body causing damage to the board.
8. Reinstall the protective plastic white cover over the interface board.
9. Flip the console upright and reinstall the wiring harness and control knob (The knob only goes on one way).
10. Carefully insert the console in the front grooves on top of the washer, first. Then lower the back and reinstall the screws.

The repair is pretty straight forward. However, if you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Now...it was recently brought to my attention by a consumer on this website that there is a recall on this circuit board. The following paragraph is the direct direct quote:

"I too had the misfortune of dealing with the continuous beeping on my washer (model # 110.27062600). No code was given.I called the Sears hotline and asked for the manufacturers warranty department. I then called the recall line at (800)659-7026 and after giving my model number and serial number they discovered is was indeed recalled or being "upgraded"! They have ordered the part and are sending someone out. For those who have already paid to have it repaired I would call Sears and ask for a refund. Good luck!"

If I understand this correctly, you may not have to purchase a new control board. Or, if you did, Sears may refund the cost and provide someone to install it for you. It may be worth your while to contact them to find out. I hope all this information is helpful to you.

Kenmore Oasis no error code keeps beeping low -loud


If its the main board that you are having an issue with, honestly i will suggest to get a new one instead, might cost you as much as buying a new one if you are going to have it repaired.

When I plug in the washer, it keeps changing the soil level


The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.



It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.



The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.



The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE

LINK: http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wfgstgtftbtkrrdxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/gfsfgfsgqxgfqtqtgwf/1/1303472/5961857/image55806img-or.gif



NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.



There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.

A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.

When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.

If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.

This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.



NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.



If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.

As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.
