Customer Question

I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis Steam Electric Dryer that is giving me a trouble code of
F40. What does this code mean as the dryer quits and gives me this code.

Error Code F40 is that the thermal fuse has blown.

The thermal fuse is located inside the dryer under the drum attached to the blower wheel housing. Here is a link to the part.
