Kenmore Oasis Beeping

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?

    It beeps through the cycle, sometimes the 2nd rinse light turns on with the beep. At times, I can stop the beeping by pressing the 2nd rinse button a couple times. I unplug it when not in use.

    A few times, while the lid was open the machine was not in use itbeeped, spun once and shot out water. I now make sure it is unplugged when removing laundry so that I don't get hurt.

    We have the exact same problem as described by everyone else. We had a handyman come look at it, of course it didn't do it when he was out. I guess we'll just standby until it doesn't work at all.

    I have the same exact issue. Sears told me that it was being "upgraded" for problems and sent a service technician out. He then told me the mother board is covered under the recall but not the interface board, which is the problem. I am fighting with them now and am not going to pay the service charge for sending someone out. Why isn't this model being recalled if clearly there is a problem? I am ordering the part now and fixing it myself. If you do a google search for sears direct coupons you can find codes for 10% off. Little conciliation for a problem that they should be paying for or replacing. I am officially never buying a kenmore product again.

    the washer works but just keeps randomly beeping.

  • leedynamo Aug 16, 2008

    For me it is the dryer that beeps, beginning right after I start the machine, then becoming random in frequency. I haven't figures out the pattern of the noise exactly yet. The Cycle Signal Volume (loud and soft) button lights up alternately with the beep. The washer and dryer are several years old and the beep problem began weeks ago.

    I have a similar problem only my washer stops and displays a F1 code. If I push stop and then start it will start up again. It almost always stops at 16 or 17 minutes to go in the cycle. if you babysit it to get by 16 minutes it will finish the cycle. I am figuring it is the main control board. Please advise.

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.

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.

Mine is doing the same exact thing. Just after I press "Start", the F1 starts beeping. Then at 23 minutes into the cycle, it does it again. So frustrating! What is wrong with this machine?

Cycle Signal Won't quit beeping

This is a common problem with the Oasis. The problem is with the interface control board in the console, and/or wiring harness to the board. I have repaired three of these problems in the last 6 months and it was the interface control board each time. The machine will still function normally except for the annoying noise. I don't know of an easy way to defeat the noise functions to the interface control board, or if it should even be attempted. You could cause more harm than good. It can be a bit pricey to replace, and can be tedious to remove. If you wish to attempt to repair, let me know and I can give you some step by step tips on how to remove.
