Kenmore Elite OASIS washer 110.27072603-had F1 error code, replaced control board. Now washer won't completely spin out the water before displaying "oL" code. Small load of clothes still very wet after opening lid. Lid locks earlier in the cycle.

The inner tub has a lip. Grab hold of that and see if the tub will lift up about and inch. If it does it's ok. If it doesn't then it's stuck to the shaft. If it's stuck to the shaft you'll have to remove the inner tub and clean the rust from the shaft.

You need to pull the inner basket completely out of the machine.

Thank you all. This sounds familiar from the other posts I've read. II'll take a look to see if the basket is stuck to the shaft. Then there was something about white vinegar to finally get it unstuck ;)

Tried many methods to remove the inner wash basket, e.g. floating, pulling, solvents, hammer. Called Sears and had 2 different A&E Factory Service repairmen try to remove it from the top with no success. Second repairman had to remove it by hammering the drive shaft from the bottom after dismantling the machine. They both said in most cases, it should have floated off with some pulling; in this case, it was too badly rusted to the drive shaft which is manufactured of the wrong material for this application.

 

A&E repairmen were professional and skilled but the phone interface/customer service center was terrible.  Very poorly packaged replacement wash basket was damaged (tech anticipated that) and had to be returned and another one sent. Several weeks later, the wash basket (covered by warranty), the drive shaft, and the bearings were replaced and the machine appears to be working consistently.
