Kenmore Elite OASIS HT - F70 Error FIXED !!
« on: February 16, 2014, 06:26:56 PM »
Just got done working on a Kenmore Elite OASIS HT - Model # 110.28082700 (a relatively newer washer) in very good physical shape. Ran it through the Diagnostics mode C0, C1 (tub filled and would not float), water overfilled and I had to advance diagnostics manually. Tub filled extremely HIGH with water, once diagnostics got into agitate the OL ERROR occurred. The tub emptied and tried to run diagnostics again with the same issue. So i thought the Suspension rods might be the issue - Check into the rods but noticed they were the latest versions (BLACK RODS not the silver (OLD) Rods). Then I decided to pull the basket. I removed the splash ring, removed center agitator cap and center agitator bolt along with agitator which came out rather easily. I tried to remove basket but it did not want to budge. Put some Kroil (Penetrating Oil) on the center shaft and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. After 10 minutes tried to removed center basket - still no go - it would not move so I decided to remove the motor and stator. Tried again but no movement. So I had to hammer the center shaft out and the basket came out with shaft in tack. Once the basket came out of the tub the center shaft had to be hammered out of the basket with seal and all - finally I had the center shaft in hand. Upon inspection of the shaft you can see the pitting and rust that locked the basket to the center shaft. The rust and pitting would not allow the basket to float thus not allowing the Diagnostic Mode to complete because the water was overfilling. So I decided to install a tub seal kit with Upper and Lower Bearings and Brand New Tub Seal Kit. Once Installed I ran diagnostics again and it worked IMPECCABLY!! The Water Level C2 Level stopped just below the top of the Stubbie Agitator by about 1" Inch. Ran a Load a BINGO!! EVERYTHING IS BACK TO NORMAL. NOW I HAVE A KICK BUTT MACHINE!!!


JOB COMPLETED !! Here are some pictures.

Classic example of a stuck basket. I come across this two to three times a month.

One trick I do to get a stuck basket out is to:

1) Remove agitator, tub ring and basket drive.
2) Put machine into manual test mode.
3) Set the test on agitate.
4) As the shaft twists back and forth, pull up on the basket.

This works for me ~75% of the time. Saves my back and arms from pounding the shaft out from the bottom with the basket stuck to it.
