It means USER INTERFACE HEARTBEAT FAILURE: If a central control unit heartbeat failure is displayed, no communication is detected from the USER INTERFACE to the CENTRAL CONTROL UNIT.

Possible solutions:
1. check for continuity of the user interface harness.
2. check wire harness connections to the user interface and the central control unit.
3. replace user interface if drum is rotating.
4. replace central control unit if drum is not moving.

This is what the Code/manual book states.

Mine shows code F70 which is almost same as above except...

If a central control unit heartbeat failure is displayed.....no communication is detected from the CENTRAL CONTROL unit to the USER INTERFACE.

I dont know how to check for continuity of the USER INTERFACE HARNESS...WHAT IS THIS?

The part number for the CCU under the model number you have listed is 8182687. There is also a refurbished version of the CCU you can purchase for less (part #8182237R).

Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need. The CCU will be listed as item 15 (15A for a refurbished version) under the "Control Panel Parts" section.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: The cheapest site I found the CCU listed (NEW) was pcappliancerepair.com. The cheapest (REFURBISHED) is searspartsdirect.com.
