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).

Re: F40 code on Oasis HE washer

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. back.

Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Displays "LD" error falsely


Since that you let repairman do twice and didn't fixed the problem, I think your washer have still warranty from the vendor. and they repair it free.

Please verify the panel board of the machine maybe got grounded in the wiring or got wet. How ever you can do that in your own you should consult the repairman on that matter. however the two repairman did not resolve, so its better to bring the washer's to the vendor. im sure they can fix the issue or you will be enlightened by their valuable suggestion and solution.

may this help

What does F1 code mean

A Sublime Master at the Samurai School of Appliantology recently did battle with one of these newfangled Oasis washing machines. The F1 error code was intermittent, which made it impossible to troubleshoot. Turns out there’s a service bulletin out on this problem. Come, feast your bewildered eyeballs on the wisdom of the Masters.

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.

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. back.
