Kenmore Elite Oasis HE (OL) error code

27 April 2012 - 11:21 AM

Hello everyone!

We have a Kenmore Elite Oasis HE washer, model number 110.27087604, that has been giving us nothing but problems recently. We started getting an F1 error around the first of the year. After many conversations with Sears Service Center, we diagnosed the issue to be a bad control board. We purchased one online, and installed it. The machine worked fine for about four loads, then we started getting an F70 error, and the machine keeps telling us it's overloaded. I had this happen earlier this week when washing a small load consisting of nothing but one towel and a dozen washcloths.

I've sat and watched the machine in "action". It will fill the tub full (regardless of load size) and then immediately drain the tub. It will not agitate the load at all. At this point it gives me an OL error. I can go back through and run the "Rinse/Drain & Spin" function fine. It will fill the tub, spin it out and drain it completely without any problems.

I've searched around the internet and one site said if the tub doesn't spin it's something to do with the drive shaft. I can manually spin the tub fine in both directions.

Another site showed me how to run the self diagnostic program. When I do that it makes it through all the systems without an issue. It will even agitate without any problems!

Another site said it could be an issue with the connections to the control board, so I checked all of those. I've unplugged each one, and reattached them making sure they "snap" into place.

Could this be an issue with the new circuit board, or is this a problem with some other component in the washer? I'd hate to think we purchased a circuit board that was bad... but nothing would surprise me with this machine at this point!

Thanks for any help you might be able to provide!
