Question about Kenmore 67082 Electric Dryer

6 Answers

Kenmore Elite Oasis Dryer 67086 beeps!

I have a 6 month old Oasis dryer that has begun beeping every couple minutes during the entire cycle. When it beeps, the Cycle Signal Volume "Loud" and "Soft" lights blink on and off alternating with the beeps. There is nothing in the manual about this and as we all know, Sears is absolutely worthless for providing any assistance! I hope someone can help because this beeping is driving me crazy! Thanks.

    I can't see any visable screws to remove the console :( And my wife has reminded me that the unit is 13 months old (not 6) and therefore "just" out of warranty.

    same problem here, so doesn't seem to uncommon.

    Same here with a Kenmore 67082. It's about 1 year old...I guess I will call Sears service to get someone out to look at it. I think the dryer keeps working well. Unfortunate, after about a year of use, just breaks down. Hmmm.

    Same problem - older unit. We've had ours for 26 months, and the beeping just started a week ago. There's intermittent control issues with the dryer - sometimes I have to keep pushing the volume buttons to get the main dial to change, but then it works. Really irritating, but it works.

    Could anyone please tell me where the beeper is located on the circuit board? I want to try disconnecting it also, but not sure what it looks like. PLEASE HELP! Beeping is driving me nuts!

I have been experiencing the same constant beeping throughout the drying cycle with the loud and soft lights alternating. After reading every post I could find related to this issue. I removed the top console and found the hidden tech sheet. I ran the diagnostic mode and got error code F 2 which means there is a failure or interface mismatch, whatever that means. Well, when I read that folks have spent hundreds of dollars to replace the part and the problem returns and since the dryer functions perfectly fine except for the beeping, I just removed the beeper from the control board (twisted it off). Crossed my fingers and put everything back together. Turned on the dryer and bingo, beep is gone and dryer works fine. I know this isn't a proper fix, but Sears doesn't have one either. I had a Sears Tech to my house right before the warranty expired and she had no idea what to do and said the dryer was so new, they didn't have any specs. She didn't even remove the top to get the tech sheet and check any of the connections or run the diagnostic test? Just kept pushing different buttons and unplugged and it seemed to reset, but of course came back. Hope that helps someone else who doesn't have the money to replace and knows that Sears won't do it. Good luck!

First, to do the test, have the dryer off. Press any key other than stop and hold for three seconds, release for three seconds, hold for three seconds, etc., until "88" appears in the timer. It should shortly show a code. If it is F2, it's the board.

There are three screws (pointing down) left, right and center on the back of the control housing. Unscrew all three and pull the unit toward the front. UNPLUG THE DRYER. Three screws hold the board in. Before removing it, press the little locks and remove and replace each cable. Plug the dryer in and redo the test. (You don't need to screw in the screws to redo the test.)

If you get the same test result, Order the replacement. When it arrives, unplug the dryer and (getting back into the control unit) replace the board, being careful to follow instructions regarding grounding.

I did it the way miniflora said. On my Kenmore- Model # 11067087600, I had to pry it off with a screw driver. No more beeps, the beeps were driving me insane. Thank you very much miniflora, I can sleep and dry my clothes now thanks to you. Why do we need the dam alarms anyways, their just another thing that can break.

Havok1919 - Now it sounds like you are on to something. The fact that Sears just started throwing parts at your problem reaffirms they don't know what they are doing, and 2) that its not a common problem. I do believe in dryer poltergeists! :) I'll take a look at replacing the "user interface" and post back to the group what happens. Thanks.

We have a very close model (almost exactly the same age) with the exact same problem. We have previously had about four repair calls on it for mysteriously shutting down mid-cycle (and generally acting possessed-- like ghosts hitting the buttons ;-). The final "fix" for that problem was replacement of the "user interface" board (Sears P/N 8564375). It worked fine for a couple months and then developed the same problem you describe. The problem is most likely either with P/N 8564375 ("USER INTERFACE" the display/button board), P/N W10118243 ("CONTROL ELECTRONIC"-- that's the part that actually *reads* the buttons and sets the lights on and off), or possibly the wiring harness between the two. My guess is that it it erroneously reading the 'signal volume' switch as being pressed and is setting the light/beeper accordingly. We had W10118243 replaced on our unit before (basically the techs just swapped stuff out until it started behaving), so I doubt that's the problem. I've tried messing with the cable on ours and that doesn't seem to be the problem. I think P/N 3407184 (The "USER INTERFACE") is probably the best bet. It's cheaper than a service call at least. ($89 for a whole new assembly, vs. ~$300+ for a service call) You can go to the Sears Parts store (http://www3.sears.com/) and type in your model number (on the sticker inside the dryer door) and then look at the "Top Console and Parts" page. There's a "Diagram" button that will show you the expanded view of all the parts. I imagine they call the parts by the same name on all the units. Basically you want to look for the circuit board with the lights and buttons on it that sits under the plastic front housing. Good luck!

Thats a tough one to help with if there is nothing listed in the manual. if you remove the consol there should be 1 screw on both sides to remove and the gently pull it tword the front of the dryer and flip it up. there may be a tech sheet there and that may give you what the beeping is. But being 6 months old it is under the 1 year warrenty call sears and let them deal with the problem.

Hi Celine, I just experienced the same exact problem. I came here looking for a solution. I got mine to stop by holding down the cycle signal button for 3 seconds, releasing it for three seconds, and repeating until both lights (loud and soft) went off. Hope it helps.

It won't stop beeping all the time. We have tried everything. It beeps 3 times, all the buttons light up and it makes me crazy!! I want it to beep when the load is done - that's it.


When the Cycle Signal Control is ON (turn off) a signal will sound at the end of each cycle and
during the Press Saver setting (some models). The volume is adjustable on some
models.

Cycle Signal Volume beeps from loud to soft


This is a common and very well known problem with the Oasis. You will need to replace the operator interface board inside the control panel to resolve this issue. The board is located directly behind the control knob. If you post back with your model number, I can research a part number for you, give you info on where you can order a replacement, and give you guidance on how to replace the board yourself.

3 audible beeps every 20-25 seconds


Try unplugging the washer for about 20 minutes then plug back in and use. I have found that this actually works! The only thing I can figure out is that it takes time for the electronic control to clear. If that doesn't fix the problem I would call sears tech since it is less than a year old. They have a 1-2 year warranty.

Loud/Soft signal


all i can figure is it is a strange method by kenmore to alert the user to throw in an antistatic cloth that gives softer clothes (clothes softener sheets)
