My Kenmore Elite Oasis HE Top Loader continuously beeps while running a cycle.  In fact it even sporadically beeps while not in a cycle.

I've had to unplug it from the wall in order to have some peace and quiet when not using it.... weird.

 

Model #: 110.27082602

Serial #: CT3371347

 

This phenomena started about 3-4 months ago and has been getting progressively worse.

 

My wife also mentioned that she has seen it throw an "F2" error.

 

********************************************

Other info that may or may not be related:

I have a Wolf SO30 F/S oven which also beeps sporadically.  Running a self diagnostic on it reveals a "keyboard error"

********************************************

 

  1. Any idea where I would find a service manual?
  2. Any idea what the problem part is?
  3. Any idea what the rood cause is?

Thanks for your help in advance

 

Jim

Unplug the washer and open the Control Panel. Inside, you'll find the tech sheet. The tech sheet will explain what the F2 error code means and prescribe some tests for you to do. Go ahead and do those and then report back what you find.

OK, I opened the Control Panel up but there wasn't any documents inside.

Now what?

This means the machine has been worked on before and the sleazebag stole the tech sheet.  Here, you can borrow mine, just be sure to return it!  http://appliantology...her-tech-sheet/

 

F2 is a problem with the touchpanel, probably one of the keypads is worn and intermittently makes a short imitating it being pressed.    You'll probably need to replace the touchpanel Part number: AP3890531

Domo, sh2, I can never keep up with all the various tech sheet locations in the different machines.

I don't think it's the touchpanel/Console (Kenmore p/n: W10034420; Appliance Parts Pro p/n: AP3890531) as it's just mechanically depressing the buttons on the Control Panel (p/n: 8564392) and I do not see any electronic connection between the Console and the Control Panel.

I'm more than willing to be wrong though.

I did notice some oxidation film on the back side (only) of the Control Panel PCB which I cleaned up with a bit of vinegar (very small amount) and and toothbrush (rinsed with distilled water and dried completely) but that didn't seem to make any difference.

The more I think about it, I believe that there is likely this same oxidation in one of the actual pushbuttons which could be causing the contact to be made.

 

I think I will order a new Control Panel however in the mean time i merely clipped the SPKR V+ trace on the back side of the Control Panel PCB to shut it up for a while.

Wife's happy now!!! :biggrin:  :biggrin:

 

I'll keep you posted.....

Thanks
