Get the model number and go to:

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.

Elite Oasis. What does the F-40 code mean?


F-40 is a communication error between the main board and the motor control unit, or it could be a bad inline fuse between the two in the wire harness on the l-1 side.

Kenmore Elite Oasis Electric Dryer - no power (PF code)


Press and hold the "Start" button to restart the dryer cycle if the "PF" (power failure) error code appears. This code often appears when a cycle is interrupted before it completes. You may also check the breaker or household fuse, and ensure the machine has not come unplugged.

F-40 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.

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).

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.

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.

Kenmore oasis electric dryer beeps and displays code F45


We had this error on our machine for about a year before we finally got sick and tired of it. Our dryer was purchased in 2006.

Here is the solution: the code means there is an error on the thermistor. Our thermistor was loose, as were other electrical wires. My husband tightened up all the connections and the thermistor, and we have never had this error again.

However, we will never buy these machines again either, because we have had numerous other errors on the washer and dryer.
