Kenmore elite oasis (canyon capacity) top load washer

I've had the washer about 1and a half years and do about 4 loads of laundry a week. about a month ago, the digital display panel started freaking out. the green light showing the water temp would go up and down the choices but you couldn't stop it anywhere. Now when i choose "normal wash" and try to change the water temp, it doesn't let me. Most of the time when i hit start, nothing happens, so i hit stop and then start the "power on" all over again. Most times i have to unplug the unit and plug it back in. It's like it is haunted. after i've unplugged it, the 'power' light comes on and the time setting for the washload comes up. i've had to leave it unplugged till i need to use it becuase it comes on all by itself for no apparent reason. do you know what causes this? can a homeowner fix it with the right part? pls advise. thanks. I can't believe i spent almost $1000 on a washing machine and it's breaking down after only 16 months.....

    My Oasis Elite washing machine is 13 months old and it acts like it's possessed! While the machine is filling, the water level will just go keeps rotating and beeping. Sometimes I can get it to stop but only for a little while. After the load is done and I've emptied the machine, the Clothes Clean button will light up and start beeping. That's when I have to unplug the machine. Very frustrating to spend the $$, and then have the machine wear out in one year's time. I swore I would never buy another Kenmore after my last lemony machine, but got talked into this one....what a fool I was.

The button interface on the console has failed and will need replacing. Read owners manual for possible limited warranties on electronic components.

My 3 month old washer suddenly started leaking from underneath. There was a code displayed of a 5d, but the washer drains into a laundry sink, there are no kinks in the input line.

The washer is detecting too much soap. Make sure that you are using HE (high efficiency) soap Do a clean washer or hot cycle once a month with bleach or white vinegar with no clothes in it. Your washer only uses half the water that a regular machine does. The HE is specially designed for front loaders and these types of machines

First be sure no rodent has crawled in and died inside the washer aside from that run a half cup os fabreeze thre the system to see if that helps. Also have someone check that the pee trap that the dran is connected to is not backed up.

Moldy smell in front load kenmore washer

I had the same problem. Have you cleaned the filter under the front panel? Simply remove the three screws holding the panel below the door and remove the 2" white screwcap. Be sure to have a basin handy to catch the water. (possibly a couple of gallons if the stainer is really clogged) I suspect you'll find several moldy items that are causing the odor. Good luck.
