    I purchased my Kenmore Elite Oasis HE just over a year and half ago and

    for the last two months have had an F1 error displayed during the beginning and rinse cycle. If I hit stop and start 3 times during each portion of the clean (6 times total per load) then it will continue.

    My Kenmore Oasis HE washer is doing the same thing. It is 20 months old. It is flashing the F1 code and I have to restart it. Usually on the third or fourth time it will continue to wash. Then most of the time it does the same thing when it starts to rinse. Everyone seems to be having the identical problem with this washer. I called Sears and they said it would be a $65. service call and stated they couldn't tell me what the F1 code meant without checking the machine. Yeah, right. They think I believe that.

    I purchased my OASIS about 1 1/2 yrs ago. Worked fine until two months ago when I started getting the F1 code which requires me to turn it off and on 3-10 times before it starts...and even then sometimes it stops agian at the rinse cycle and I have to go thru the same process. I called the SEARs Rework number and they told me it was soon to be recalled . They advised me that in 2-3 weeks I would receive a card in the mail announcing the recall and at that time I could schedule appointment to fix. 6 weeks have gone by and no card. I just called the same Rework number and they told me there is NO recall! I have to call the repair dept an from what I see on the site, repair could easily be $500.00 are more!!!! $1000.00 for a washing machine that does not work after less than 2 years! This sis BS. I am angry! SEARS Kenmore needs to be held accountable,

What part needes to be replaced when receiving F1 code on a kenmore 110 27072602 model?


Hello, welcome to FixYa

Based on your description I'd first suggest you look up your warranty coverage in the owners manual to see what degree of warranty the control is covered before replacing the control board.

I say that because according to Whirlpool, (they manufacture the Kenmore Oasis as you may or may not have known) this is the definition of the "F1" error code:

Primary Control Failure
"F then 1 flashes when there is a primary control failure. Replace the machine control assembly. i.e.

Part # is W10189966 and available at "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclinic.com" to name a couple. Let me know if I can help move you forward in an many and I''ll certainly do what I can.

**You may also want to look into recalls on those control boards as well as many of them where recalled in the last year or two...you'll need to phone the manufacturer and present the model and serial number of your machine.**

Thank you for choosing FixYa today sand good luck. Please take a second to rate the info provided here for you today and good luck.

My kenmore elite washer, model #110.27092600 flashes an f1 error code when filling


F1 code = Primary Control Failure. Replace the machine/motor control assembly.
Call 1-800-659-7026. That machine has a recall for the control board and if your machine is in the recall they will fix it for free.

F1 code appears after starting and now during the wash


You need a new main control board. F1 means that the board cannot sense water in the machine. You may want to call your manufacturer to see if the board was recalled. They were having alot of problems with that error code and recalled control boards on some washers

Wtw6600sb1 has a f1 code what's the problem?


The control board is shot. Whirlpool did a recall on those boards, so get in touch with them and see if your machine is covered. If it is, whirlpool will cover the parts and labor for free.

F1 appears on my machine within a few minutes when the machine is started. I have to stand there for a few minutes & push pause/start again. What does F1 means


I actually had the same problem and read some other blogs and found that this is a control board issue. Whirlpool actually had a recall on these boards and should cover the part and labor to fix. I called them today at 1-800-253-1301 and they are coming out to fix my washer this week. When you call they just need the model number and the serial number. Both can be found just inside the lid on your washer. Good luck!

Shows code lr works sometimes ,makes pssssst sound like a shot of air


I have seen this code caused by a failed Motor Controller, a failed Control Board and one forum member replaced the TDS sensor to clear it.

This could be a difficult issue to troubleshoot if you don’t have replacement parts.

If you want to get into this you could remove the machine front cover and check to see if you can rotate the clutch pulley CW and CCW with no binding. I would have you start a Spin Only Cycle and see if the Motor will drive the Clutch pulley CCW. If you decide to call in a repair service call Maytag 800-688-9900 to get an authorized warranty repair service company. The control board has a 5 yr warranty, motor has 10 yr coverage. The warranty info is in the SM. Maytag will need your model and serial number. That info is located on the back right top side of the console.

The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Good luck
