Question and Answers

Q:

My test of the machine control electronics across P8-4 to P9-1 reads 1.05 at 2M on the multimeter. What does this equate to?

A:

We don't have enough information to interpret your results and refer to the tech data sheet that you are looking at. I recommend that you reply with the full model number of your appliance. We will assist you further once we receive that additional information.

Q:

Does the control board need to be replaced in my Kenmore Elite dryer model 110.67062600 that quits after a minute and flashes an F40 code?

A:

The F40 on this type of dryer normally indicates that there is a communications error between the machine control board and the blower motor control board. This particular model of dryer does not have a separate blower motor and therefore does not have a blower motor control board. The F40 is likely caused by a loose interface control board wire harness connection or by a failed user interface control board (not the control board part 3978982). The part number for the user interface control board is 280157. You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website. The procedure for replacing the user interface control board is shown in the image below. NOTE: Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components. Your dryer will look slightly different than the one shown below since it will not have the blower motor control board. The procedure for changing the user interface control board should be the same. (If you find a loose wire harness connection between the user interface control and the machine control board, this could be causing your problem.)

Once you replace the user interface control board, you should not have to address this problem again. It is unlikely that the part will fail again unless you have an unreliable electrical supply to your home. Low voltage or power surges through the electrical line can affect electronic control boards in appliances. Lightning strikes can also cause a surge or glitch through the electrical lines that can sometimes damage control boards.

The ohm reading that you reported in your details went through the motor circuit. It would not apply to this problem that you are having with the F40 code in your dryer.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .

Q:

My Kenmore dryer will not start.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

You were to test the resistance across P8-4 and P9-1 on the connector and not where it connects on the control board. This would check the motor circuit, belt switch and thermal fuse. DO NOT check across the pins on the control board. Disconnect P8 and P9 connectors and place your Ohm meter leads across pin 1 on P9 and the other meter lead on pin 4 on P8 with the door closed and the power cord disconnected. If the motor circuit measures 1.6, it's Okay; I suspect a faulty console assembly with electronics.

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