www.ApplianceRepairLesson.com This video explains how to access and replace the control board needed to fix the F1 error code on a Cabrio, Bravos, or Oasis washing machine. Unplugging the washer may fix the issue temporarily, but the board will need to be replaced to ensure the error does not come back

  1. Why doesn’t the manufacture put out a recall on these washers ours broke and they covered the parts but not the labor. I don’t think I’m the only one with this problem after searching on the internet.

  2. We have a Kenmore Elite Oasis and it is a piece of junk!!! F1 errors all the time, the lock on the front broke….$125 bucks just to fix the lock., the F1 errors I would have to press stop then start about a dozen times, then again mid cycle about half a dozen more times. Then the other day during an F1 error it stopped working completely…..tub filled with water and clothes! Now the lights are on but no body is home! Repair man coming out to fix it…. in a WEEK!!! Apparently needs new control panel. the washer is a piece of garbage!!!!!

    • Hi, and thanks for taking the time to post your comment friend. You are not the only one with those feeling for sure. The Whirlpool Cabrio and the Kenmore Oasis are basically the same washing machine. They both have a horrible repair record and more than one common repair issue. Most appliances have at least one common repair. These washers have several. I know these washers well and have been servicing them regularly for years now. I hope the appliance man can get you up any running.

  3. I have a Sears Kenmore Elite Oasis HE washer model 110.27072604. It suddenly stopped working midway through a cycle. I cannot get the water to drain. Tried canceling the cycle and unplugging/resetting to no avail. When it is supposed to drain, all I hear is a humming noise but nothing pumps into the drain. How do I proceed to drain the system so I can attempt to check for clogs, etc? Do you have a manual on how to take it apart and put it back together? Thank you.

    • Hi, thank you for taking the time to comment. I will try my best to assist you with your Kenmore washing machine troubleshooting.

      That “Humming” noise you hear is the drain motor impeller trying to turn. It’s most likely clogged with some kind of debris. The problem with these top loaders is that you must drain all the water out of the tub before you can get the pump off. Even with all the water bailed out of the washer when you remove the hose from the pump more water will pour out the bottom so have towels ready.

      So bail the water with a cup. You may even want to tip the washer back so you can get more out once the majority of the water has been bailed out. That will help once you remove the hose to get to the impeller on the pump.


  4. Maytag Bravos quiet series 300 showed an Ld code. I accessed the control board, removed tubing and blew in strongly. Heard bubbling in tub. Attached wet vac to the drain line and in combination with Drain & Spin cycle pulled out obstruction. Ran Drain & Spin multiple times and when I tried to run a wash cycle I got the error code F01. How long do I need to have power off to reset control board or is there a way to reset the board manually?
