Question about Kenmore Elite Oasis 27052 Top Load Washer
Sears came out and advised control board has to be replaced. Washer is one year old and manf warranty just expired. Did not take out additional warranty. Code F1 appears when you attempt to wash and washer stops Is this something I can replace myself if I purchased the control board? Sears cost is $515.00 including part, labor and tax. The cost of the part alone is $404.00 through Sears. Is this worth fixing or should I call it quits and purchase a new washer We have an Oasis HE washer also. Our first problem was a leak, water on the floor. Sears repairman came and told us he had the solution, a "fix" Whirlpool has available. He could do it for free under warranty, but my machine was too old, and he would have to charge. He fixed the machine when I received the part. But after calling Sears about this, they refunded the money. I then got the recall on the board, and they replaced the board no charge. Now we have the leak again. What is the contact number for the class action suit? Grogand
The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.
It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.
The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.
The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE
NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.
There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.
A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.
When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.
If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.
This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.
NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.
If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.
As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

I too had the misfortune of dealing with the continuous beeping on my washer (model # 110.27062600). No code was given.I called the Sears hotline and asked for the manufacturers warranty department. I then called the recall line at (800)659-7026 and after giving my model number and serial number they discovered is was indeed recalled or being "upgraded"! They have ordered the part and are sending someone out. For those who have already paid to have it repaired I would call Sears and ask for a refund. Good luck!
