Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Kenmore Elite Oasis Steam dryer runs but gets a F 40 code and stops. Just plugged it in to do my first load. Tried pulling out and checking lint in vent. It seemed to over heat the first time then sat a few minutes and I started it again to dry my towels. It counted down to 1 and stopped again without a signal that it was done.

    It did it again and had to have parts replaced. A sensor wire was not attached at the factory and then the board didn't work and after almost 3 weeks of a new dryer not working and waiting on parts they brought me the store model and it works fine. Not likely to do buisness with Sears again! It takes way too long to phone in for service and then 3 days is too long let alone 3 weeks on a new machine.

After just now calling the service center it seems that unplugging the machine for 30 seconds or so will reset the control panel. The F 40 code means the signal wasn't working in the machine and resetting it solved the problem. Kind of like when you have to unplug the computer sometimes.

Dryer turns on then stops in 5 seconds and flashes F40 code. shuts down


Check lint filter, check vent outlet at dryer, and continue on through vent checking for lint to the exit area of the vent. Keeping the vent lint free saves energy and reduces drying time.

Check behind the dryer to make sure the tube running to the exit vent isn't clogged or blocked. Then go out side where the vent runs to and make sure it isn't clogged.

The Kenmore Elite Oasis Steam Dryer - almost new - worked well last week. This week no power to dryer; 220volts is present to dryer. Any ideas?


You might want to take a look at the vent pipe for lint. If the exhaust thernistor detects high temps it shuts down the dryer. Bravos service manual (same as oasis)

Hello,

Check the vent on the back. This is indicating a air flow issue. If the vent is clear ohm the heater out check it for continuity.

Dryer stopped and said check lint screen


There is a lint screen,usually on top of the dryer, that pulls out to remove the lint,it is probably stopped up.

Dryer is working but will beep while running and continue to run. I clean lint trap after every load and have checked it.


underneath the lint trap there is a senor, you will need to clean all the lint out inside the dryer and the vent tube:

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).

I need the installation manual for a Kenmore Elite Oasis gas dryer. Specifically I need to know what water line attaches to the dryer (for steam), the hot or the cold?


Hello, Here's the link to view the owners manual and exploded view of the parts for your model. Once there, click on the exact model # you have (it's listed on your dryer's data plate) so you get the right one.

Hello plz make sure the gas burner does not have any lint build up on burner assembly inside the machine / plz clean.That usually causes a burnt smell. If there is no error codes on the display and the machines is operating fine you are chasing a ghost. If there is a pump or motor over load an error code should come up on the display.
