Kenmore Elite oasis F40 error code.
« on: May 15, 2013, 03:32:59 PM »

Afternoon fellow tech.
I have an Oasis dryer 110.67062000. Customer complained about it starting and stopping. When I arrived at the customer the machine displayed error code F40. I ran the diagnostic and F40 was the only code.
I check the exhaust thermistor and it showed open. So I replaced it with 8577274. The F40 was still there. I had a problem getting a reading on the intake thermistor. (Big hands and small places ::) } So I order a new inlet thermistor and a machine control {Of course from repairclinic!)
Just wondering from you gentlemen and ladies experience. Am I really looking replacing the machine controller. Been out to this customer 3 times about this error.
 
Thanks

You can try disconnecting the connections from the board to the control and resetting them see if that helps if not ohm all the wires and if that tests your at the board. Double check all connections.

Thx's. Niobrara
I pulled all the connectors out and place them back. I didn't get a chance to check wires. Customer had an prior appt.
