Q:

How do you reset a Sears Kenmore Elite Oasis washer?

A:

Sears Kenmore Elite Oasis washers can be reset by pushing the power button once or the stop button twice. The machine may need to be reset when one of the manufacturer's assigned error codes appears on the digital display panel.

Some codes, such as "LF" and "Ld," require the user to check hose connections before pressing the stop button to clear the display and reset the washer. Other codes, such as "dL" or "dU," indicate lid issues. Once the lid is positioned properly, the washer can be reset by pressing the pause button. According to Sears, some Oasis washers required an electronic control board upgrade as of 2009. As of 2014, customers can contact Sears to determine if upgraded parts and installation are still being honored.

    Why won't my Kenmore washer spin?

    A:

    One of the most common reasons a Kenmore or any other brand washer won't spin is something preventing the lid interlock switch from activating, according to RepairClinic. The problem is sometimes as simple as the lid not closing completely. Other switch problems include lint jamming in the switch or a cracked switch. Sometimes opening and closing the lid or removing lint is all the machine requires to spin again.
