Question about Kenmore 67082 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I keep getting an F40 code on my dryer. I unplug the dryer and plug it back in and then it will run - but now the heat is not coming on in the dryer. I am so frustrated. This dryer is only 3 1/2 years old.

Hi,
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

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.

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.

I have a Bosch nextt 500 series dryer and after 2 years of use the problem I have is the heat will shut off and the dryer will keep running and I have to press the reset button on the backside of the dryer


Open the front panel, remove heat exchanger and clean. also clean out lint tray. this might help a little. Now lets check if the thermal sensor or heating element needs to be replaced.
Unplug the dryer. remove the panel in the back of the dryer that covers the heating element. ( the inner panel). On top of the heating element you will see a thermal sensor with a small red button on it. Thats the manual reset button. To test if the heating element is working properly you can disconnect the wires from the sensor and clip the connectors together . Plug the dryer back in and start it. pay attention to the heating element. It should begin to glow shortly. if it doesn't then your heating element is bad and needs to be replaced.

Unplug the dryer. Connect the wires back to the thermal sensor. Plug the dryer back in. Before you start the dryer, press the red button on the thermal sensor. Start the dryer. If the heating element doesn't come on and dryer doesn't heat, then you need to replace that sensor.

Dryer wont run gave me f40 code, can you help me?


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.

F40 code dryerstarts then shutsdown and gives a f40 code


The F40 error is a communication error which means the main control W10111616 is not communicating with the motor control part number 8544799.

First - go through the machine and check all harneses 7 plugs. This expensive machine uses the cheapest parts possible. Unplug and re-plug all connections you can find.
Particularly the controller (CCU) and motor.


Most likely neither control is the problem but since the main control was replaced we know it's not the problem.

The key to diagnosing this problem is to check voltage to the motor control. There is a black and white wire going to L1 and neutral.
Refer to the wiring diagram for an image of this.
If there is 120 volts to the control and the blower motor is not running then the 8544799 motor control is most likely at fault.

It is more likely you will not read voltage there.
Use extreme caution checking live voltage and only do so if you're comfortable and confident using a volt/ohm meter.

If there is no voltage to the motor control and the main motor doesn't run the thermal fuse can be at fault or the main control which was replaced and didn't help.

From the description you give I believe the main motor is running when you get the F40 code so the thermal fuse and main control are most likely okay.

If there is no voltage to the motor control then the problem can be a fuse link that may be open preventing voltage from getting to the motor control.

This part is not the thermal fuse and is not listed in the parts diagram or even shown on the wiring diagram. The fuse link is most likely the cause of your troubles.
If the inline fuse link is open you will have to replace the entire wire harness. The inline fuse link is not available as a separate part.

Model 110.78082701 F40 error code what does it tell is bad?


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.

Kenmore dryer model # 11067072600 I am getting a F40 error code after 3-4 minutes in any cycle and then the dryer stops. I have checked all connections & continuity. During the diagnostics test mode...


i would have to guess that its a problem with the control board. if it were the user interface it would most likely fail right away and not after a few minutes.
either one are expensive, but the board should cost about 120 bucks

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.

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.
