Error code F70 on Whirlpool frontload washer WFW9600

We tried to use the delayed wash last night but when we went to it this morning we had error code F70. There is a small possibility that the door was not closed properly, but we forgot to check. We opened the door, closed it and restarted it on a nondelayed wash and it started just fine. The manual for the washer is not very descriptive with the error codes, it simply says to restart and if that doesn't work call the repair man (what is this a microsoft windows machine?).

You said, you tried to use the delayed wash last night but when we went to it this morning we had error code F70. There is a small possibility that the door was not closed properly, but we forgot to check. We opened the door, closed it and restarted it on a non-delayed wash and it started just fine. The manual for the washer is not very descriptive with the error codes, it simply says to restart and if that doesn't work call the repair man (what is this a microsoft windows machine?).


Whirlpool codes:
“F” codes other than F20, F21 or F22
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select
DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains,
call for service.


Let me know that it works for you or if you have any questions.
Thank You.

I fixed mine for no cost in 3 minutes!
We have a Whirpool Duet front load washer as well. For the past month we would get the f70 or the f71 error code and the waswher woud not work. I refused to begin changing components as suggested on web searches until I could determine the exact cause. Whirpool is absolutely useless in helping to fix thier problems.
Each time it happened I instructed my family members to leave the machine alone. I wanted to be able to troubleshoot the machine exactly the way it was when the problem occured. After several times I found the problem.
The door is a two part door consisting of an outer trim and an inter trim. The screws that hold the two together work loose over time and cause the door to not close correctly and move during the washing process which disrupts the signal to the door sensor sending an error to the control unit.
I tightened all of the screws with a torx screw driver and the problem is gone.

F 70 error on my whirlpool duet washer


Hi, 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 which needs to be replaced.

Went to start a load last night sound like it was going to run but after a min. the water had not started and then a f70 flash on the screen and now it just beeps when you push start no light just sound


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F70 is a communication error between the Central control unit (CCU) and the user interface. To start with you’ll need to check continuity of the user interface and then check the wire harness connecting the user interface & central control unit. If the drum is not moving then central control unit should be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

Kenmore ELITE HE 5t 47086 frontload errror code F70


The F70 and F71 error codes on this model of washer indicates a communication problem between the user interface control board and the central control unit (main control board). These error codes can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Try unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power. Wait 1 minute and then plug the washer back in to the see if the fault code clears. If it does, then the washer may work normally.

If the code reappears, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit. I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair this type of problem so that the correct component can be replaced.


Be sure your unit is plugged into a 3 prong grounded outlet as well.


F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself. To access the part, just pull the unit forward and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel by pulling it back, up, and off. Then remove all the screws going into the top of the control panel. Remove the dispenser drawer and remove the screws coming in through the dispenser. Remove the screws coming from the inside of the dryer going forward into the control panel, then remove the control panel (it's just clipped in on the bottom. After that you can disconnect the wire harnesses to the front interface control board and replace that part.


Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.
