Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer
I read your solution for the beeping on the kenmore Oasis. Of course, our warranty ended in April and so for one last effort before we call in a repairman and spend hundreds of dollars I wanted to check with you. The machine was doing this intermittent beeping thing during the cycle and we were learning to ignore. Then it basically stopped working. When I pushed power the window would show 43 minutes and all looked normal. Then I push start and the window changes to 49 minutes and nothing happens. Then only thing it will respond to is power which turns off the machine and we're dead in the water. I unscrewed the top panel and pulled away from the washer hoping to find something like dust that might be interfering with the wiring but all of the wires and plugs could look any cleaner. With the top off I started the machine and it started up just fine other than the annoying beeping. There were no codes other than for one second I thought I saw an F2. We're fine with the beeping as long as the machine works ( would, of course, prefer that the beeping stop but not the biggest issue. Any ideas?
please can someone confirm the part number for the user interface board I need to replace to hopefully cure the beeping. Machine is washing ok at the moment but I am going to turn homicidal if the beeping continues!!!!
Have checked on Sears and the part number seems to be 8564393 'user interface'. Thanks for any help.

That annoying beep you are talking about is the Cycle On/Off alarm, right? If so...this is a common problem with the Oasis. The only cure I know of is the replace the Interface Control Board behind the console. Now, you mentioned that the machine started up AFTER you removed the console (?), top (?). That sounds like you have a loose or dirty connection between the Interface Control Board and the Main Control Board. There should be a single plug in harness going to the console to the Main Control Board. With the machine unplugged, try disconnecting the harness at both ends and cleaning the contacts. This may resolve what I believe to be a connectivity issue, and may even cure the annoying "beep". However, I personally have yet to find an easy fix for the alarm problem. It is caused by a defective relay on the Interface Control Board, and the board is not serviceable. That is why is has to be replaced. I wish I had better advice for you than that. Sorry...I hope this helps some.
