F40 code on Oasis HE washer

I have had "F40" errors on my machine since the second day. Today the second repairman is coming out (the first one could find nothing wrong and said it was due to the load being unbalanced, although it goes on immediately with or without clothes in the basket). Has anyone else had a repeated F40 code or can give me ideas on what to tell this repairman. I can't keep resetting my machine 15 time just to get one load done (although some loads go through fine).

Ocindy, F-40 has to do with the automatic temp control. The thermistor is either shorted or opened. Tell the service tech to check the connections at the water valve and at the board. If ok, change the water valve. If that doesn't solve the problem, replace the main board. Catriver...post back.

F1 error code


Revolt! If you own a Kenmore Oasis (built by Whirlpool) or Whirlpool Cabrio washer, and you are getting the "F1" error code...or similar codes, and nothing you do fixes the problem...REVOLT!
Three options: Join the class action lawsuit, sign the petition, or be a just another chump consumer. All info is below. I for one, have HAD IT with a 1000.00 washer that breaks after one year.
Here is the class action law suit info. I got
this email a couple of days ago. Remember, these Kenmore Washers (built by Whirlpool) are basically the same machine as the Whirlpool Cabrio:

"Thank you for your interest in pursuing a lawsuit against Sears relating to the Kenmore HE4t and HE3t Washing Machines. This lawsuit is currently being handled by the law firm of Seeger Weiss, LLP. Sheller, P.C. is co-counsel on the case. Your inquiry submission will be forwarded to Seeger Weiss, and you will be contacted by a Seeger Weiss representative shortly."

Kenmore elite oasis dryer model #110.6708 will not operate. flashes f-40. what does f-40 mean?


F40 = thermal fuse blown.
If the fuse is OK the error points to a communication problem between the machine control board and motor control board (check connectors).

My Kenmore Oasis Dryer will not run and has an F 40 code. What is wrong with it?


Get the model number and go to:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/modelHelp.pd?pop=flush&modelNumberId=18

The F40 code can mean a thermal interrupt or a loss of connection between the control circuit board and the motor circuit board.

Perito posted this on askmehelpdesk.com:

I found two possibilities for an F40 code.

1) Error Code F40 is that the thermal fuse has blown.
2) The F40 error code is a communication problem between the machine control board and motor control board. A bad connection might or might not cause this.

If you post your model number, or download the owner's manual from the above link, you'll probably find out what it means, at least.

It is flashing F 40 and will not run


F40 is a OASIS DRYER error that appears between the machine control and the motor control when communication becomes lost. Check the connection between the two. The error codes will be on the tech sheet beneath your console panel along with how to check for this error.

F1 error code on Kenmore Oasis He


Per Sears. To fix the problem. Unplug the washer for at least 10 min then push pause or stop 2 times and this will fix the problem.

Kenmore Oasis dryer F40 error code


I had this same issue. My dryer would run and heat up but then stop and give me the f40. I measured all thermisters and everything was in range. The tech sheet stated that I needed to buy a new control board and I did. Same problem.
The solution was a loose connection on for p4. I took needle nose pliers and squeezed the connector to make it fit tight on the board and everything is working now.
Bottom line, expensive dryer with cheap connectors.

Oasis - DU and LF error codes


Ky, see if you can put the machine in the service mode by doing this: turn the washer on, select any one button except for power,start and stop. press and hold it for 3 seconds--release for 3 seconds--press and hold for 3 seconds--release for 3 seconds--press and hold for 3 seconds....if you entered it correctly all the indicators will light for 5 seconds and 88 will show in the 2 digit display..It will now go into a automatic test cycle. If no faults are found it should unlock the top. This auto test will go through c0 to c9, you will see it in the display. If this all fails, you can access your wash by pushing in the clips on the left and right side front of the washer lid. The whole top will lift up. I would still call for service while it's under warranty. Catriver...post back.
