    I have the exact same model and today it started showing F70 error code. We have unplugged the washer for 30 mins several times and the error keeps coming back. Unit was purchased July 2, 2007.

    My washer just started to do this tonight. Does anyone know how it can be fixed or does a technician have to come out to my house?

    Our machine will beep several times during a cycle without showing an error code. It eventually completes the cycle but we have no clue what the beeping is for. We have checked the debris filter and we use HE soap, what else could this error signal be?

    F 70 with no function, no lights- how do you fix it

  • Anonymous May 23, 2009

    Our whirlpool washer is also continuously beeping in a 3 beat sequence throughout a wash. d-d-deet d-d-deet d-d-deet. There isn't any error code, but when it stops, it just has the number 8, and our controls are frozen on permanent press. After we start a load we can then change water temp and height and a few other options. Unplugging it does nothing.

    F70 Code means that there is an issue between the MMC and Motor control, either can go bad and you get the same error, I just replaced the Microcomputer Machine Control on ours and it worked fine once, then started back into given the Code, I have read so many things about these machines I will never buy another Whirlpool machine. now I am sitting here scratching my head trying to figure out why it worked after I replaced a part now after two days of it sitting its not working and no one in the house used it, even ran a short heavy duty drop cord to another outlet still same thing.

We've owned a Whirlpool Duet Washer (WFW9200SQ00) for about 3 years. We started getting the F70 error code intermittently about 6 months ago and it seems to progressively be getting worse. Unplugging the unit for a few minutes resets the error, but it comes back about every 2nd or 3rd load causing my wife a lot of frustration and with 4 kids, our laundry was backing up. After reading several Forum's, I found the F70 error code indicates a "heartbeat" communication error between the various electronic boards inside the washer and the consensus seems to be the most likely culprit is the Motor Control Unit (MCU) board. Before spending nearly $250 for a replacement board (http://www.helpfulparts.com/servlet/the-5733/8183196/Detail) with no guarantee that it would fix the problem, I decided to take the board out of the machine and inspect it. What I found is the connector for the communication (the connector with three blue wires) on this board is a very unreliable connector that uses the edge of the printed circuit board on one side of the connection instead of a real connector soldered to the board. In addition, the fit of this connector seems to loose to make a good connection. I noticed a little bit of corrosion on the board contacts which I cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a pencil eraser. After re-installing the cleaned board we've done several loads with (keeping my fingers crossed) no errors. I am still concerned about the reliability of this connection. Because of it's location, this board is subject to a fair amount of vibration and because of the loose fit I'm concerned that this issue will only come back over time. I've already decided that if the error comes back I will solder wires to the contacts on the board to provide a more robust connection. It's a shame that you can spend well over $1,000 on a top of the line washer, and in order to save $.10 Whirlpool decided to use a very poor connector in a critical area. It makes you wonder where else did they skimp to save a few pennies?!! Our next washer will not be a Whirlpool, and next time will not get a high end washer with all the bells and whistles.

    Well to me it's sounds like they could be crooks making the connection like that so loose. Seems to me that many people are having this same problem which in turn helps Whirlpool out because that means people will be buying more parts! Or another washer but hopefully not from whirlpool...

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet washer is displaying an error code

Most likely the main control board is defective. check connections between interface and main board before replacing.

Whirlpool Duet Sport Model WFW8300SW0 basket won't


The following list of codes indicates an electronics communication problem with the washer: - Duet HT washer - F01, F03, F06, F11, F23, F24, F27, F28, F29, F30, F31, F32, F35, F42, F61, F62, F63, F64, F65, F70, F71, and F99

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

I would first replace the door latch/lock assembly, a number of users have and it fixed the F-11 error code completely. Its the cheapest part for this problem.

Hope helps.
