The computer needs to be reset most likely. You might try turning it off, uplugging the washer, leaving it off for a bit and starting over. They are touchy little machines, I've found, not just your brand either. Mine comes on everytime the power blinks on and off in a storm :0) Best of all have a look in your manual and if you don't have it go to the manufacturer's site and download a new one or look for support there. Good Luck to you.

SOURCE: kenmore elite 3t washer with code f71

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.

SOURCE: What do the following codes

Hello,

The F70&F71 mean basically the same thing

F70 means the main control board is not communicating with the cycle selector/touch pad control
F71 means the cycle selector/touch pad controlis not communicating with the main control board

What needs to be checked is the wires between the main control(CCU) and the selector(user interface) for good tight connections
If all connections are good and tight the CCU has to be replaced IF the drum will rotate under power from the motor

OR if the drum will NOT rotate under power of the motor the USER INTERFACE needs to be replaced

Hello,

The F71 error code means "User interface heartbeat failure" to put that in simple terms what it means is,the touchpad/cycle selector is not talking to the main control board. To check to see why that code is being displayed ya would need to make sure that all the wire plugs between the selector and the control board are tight and in fully pressed in and making good contact at the respective connection point on the circuit board.

If ya find the wire connections to be good and tight,ya would need to start the washer and if the drum rotates the cycle selector would have to be replaced. If the drum does not rotate the main control board would need to be replaced. oldtech2332_146.jpg

No communication between UI and CCU


Hi.

I think that by this time you already fixed the problem. The codes indicate usually a fault that is either CCU or MCU.
