Q:

Kenmore Dryer 11068062800 F=40

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The single motor units do not have a fuse between the machine control board and motor control because it does not have a motor control board.

The "F40" Error Code indicates a communication error.

If your dryer has not any parts installed to cause this fault code, the user interface will need to be replaced. If the User Interface has the right combination of bad diodes it can tell the control that it is a dual motor model when it is not which can cause "F40" fault code.

Replacing the user interface should resolve the "F40" fault code. I added images below with instructions. The User Interface #W10051159 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Jami: I must assume you replaced the machine control board and not the motor control board because according to the model number your dryer blower is belt driven and does not have electric motor driving the blower. Since both components have been replaced; I strongly recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer. It could be a wire issue between the two boards or one of the two parts replaced is faulty.
