Question about Kenmore Elite Oasis 7808 Gas Dryer
F40 is a error that appears between the machine control and the motor control when communication becomes lost.
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.

The F40 error code indicates a communication failure between the main machine control board and the motor control board for the blower motor on the dryer.
This can be caused by a loose wiring connection or a blown fuse.
