Kenmore elite washer showing an F error code

It is an Oasis HT and about 12 minutes into its cycle it flashes an F error code. I have read online about numerous problems with this model and Sears has not done any recalls and a new mother board cost about $400. Is there a way to repair this myself without calling a service tech?

Hi Neil,

Below is a link to a previous question that will guide you through the initial F51 checks. Lyle included test number 3 in his images as well as the other information you need to perform the beginning checks. This can be a difficult issue to diagnose as there are quite a few things that can cause an F51, and you have to catch it during the failure.

Please perform the diagnostic tests detailed here and report back with your findings. I am looking forward to assisting you again in the near future. Thanks again for using Manage My Life. Landell
