Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

The dreaded F code.........

Sunday morning it all started with the cycle signal beeping off on, off on......for no reason at all the washer was off. then around 130 am monday morning the thing turned itself back on, with alarms and lights flashing, I thought our alarm was going off, but it was the washer. I grabbed the useless owners manual to read " to stop a 'F' code, simply push the 'stop' button". Well that worked but you is the machine turning itself on and what is an F2 I scheduled a repair with Sears, and they never showed I know it all sounds funny....but this machine was 1600 dollars and it needs some fixin'. So this morning from 8-12 someone is coming over to ifx the machine. And they get to deal with the little lady of the house, because I have to work.HA HA. Oh ya, Sears in Nashville, where I live, asked if I lived around the airport????? She said "sometimes Kenmore products can pickup the signal of passing airplanes and disrupt the control board". WHAT? So I told her that: Odd when we moved from the airport/lake area several months ago we never had a problem and now we dont live near or in the flight path of the airport. She got quite. will update tonight.........bye. charles

The problem you are having is a well known problem with the Kenmore Oasis washer. The user interface board (control panel) has been known to fail on some models which causes the annoying beeping and erratic display. I work on these machines and have never heard of any interference from certain frequencies causing problems. If that were the case, it would make sense to believe that you would have problems with other appliances in your home (particularly television and radio). The only fix for the problem is to replace the user interface board in the control panel as the board is not serviceable. I hope this sheds some light on the problem and gives you a little insight on what has actually been a common problem (I've replaced 8 of these boards within the last 6 months).

Good Morning John, thank you for allowing me to assist you! Here are some simple troubleshooting steps to help resolve this issue:

  • First, reset the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker.

  • Wait approximately ten minutes and turn on the power for the washer.

  • Next, turn on your washer and select a normal cycle.

If your washer continues to beep, it could possibly have a defective control board or a wiring failure. I would suggest contacting an experienced service technician to determine the precise cause.

Hit the power button until there is NO display . Unplug and wait a minimum of 30 seconds , plug back in and within 30 seconds hit SIGNAL button then DELAY START button then SIGNAL button again then DELAY START button again. door should lock and display t01 It is now in test mode . There are 14 different test it can run through in this mode , but all we are trying to do is check for error codes now and maybe get you back to normal, So turn the knob one click clockwise and hit the START/PAUSE button and see if any error codes come up. To exit the diagnostic mode - hit signal button then delay start button then signal button then delay start button and you are out of service test mode and back to normal. Post any error codes.

Constant beeping while washing

This can be due to fault within the control panel output to the indication and buzzer. If the washer works without any issue and the cycles are correct, then it is best to remove the buzzer connections as the drive output transistor or IC could be intermittent and so works erratic.

The only way is to disonnect the device from the controller board.

Washer turns on by itself. (Once in the middle of the night)

i have the whirlpool top loader also. Was not quiet a year old, starts running at random by itself. They sent the repair man out got lectured that it was my fault (too much soap, washer is in basement, I need to call an electrician to check the wiring). Now it drips water into the inside of the washer.
I can see it will eventually be cheaper to replace than call the repairman back.... Won't be a Whirlpool

The cycle signal beeps constantly when you turn the power on

you have a machine/motor control board (also called an ECU) that is on its way out. it will finally fail with the dreaded F1 flashing code, so you're on borrowed time.

you can either call sears one source and complain about this, or do it yourself by buying the part and doing the work. if you call sears one source, they will assign a case number and offer to cover (on average) $150 in labor and $100 in parts (but you have to pay for it up front, then call them back once everything is complete for the refund). have them come out and diagnose it since this a common problem on this crappy expensive washer (i have one and i have never hated something so much in my life as i do this washer).

if you do it yourself, the control board listed on searspartsonline is the latest & greatest that is suppose to solve this issue. i have the new ECU and it solved the F1 issue, but i have other problems that have cropped up (error codes HC & LF). its always something with this POS.

i had rumors about a recall and the paperwork being stuck in the legal department, but nothing new since Nov 2008.

good luck with sears or doing the work yourself.
