    I'm sorry. I don't think I posted this in the correct place. My washer is a Kemore Elite 5T Model number 110.47091 600. I checked for a gray ribbon cable, but I didn't see one. Can you add more recommendations?

Take the top back off anf check the gray ribbon that goes from the ccu(central control unit) to the front control.

  • Yes there should be a wire harness that goes from the ccu to the front panel.check to make sure you did not pull it off. but it sounds like the ccu could be bad, check your owners manual that part may still be in warranty.

Amana front load washer model num NFW7500VW00 CODE F70 WONT COME ON OR START


I have had a good look around and this seems to be a common problem with Maytag Amana etc machines.
Trying search Maytag f70 code and you will see.
It seems to be a faulty Control unit. Cause number 4 below seems to be what you have.

Here is one answer from a tech guy.

"The "F70" error code is indicating a loss of communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the user's interface board on the right hand side of the console. The main top can be taken off by removing the screws along the back edge of the top. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the top.
Possible Causes/Procedure:
1.Check for continuity of the user interface harness
2.Check the wire harness connections at the user interface board and the Central Control Unit.
3.If the unit will run and rotate before the "F70" displays usually indicates the user interface board will need to be replaced.
4.If the unit will not run and rotate usually indicates the Central Control Unit will need to be replaced.
if you feel you cant do this you will need a technician to come and look at this. "

I have a front loader MHWE3000VW12 it's giving me a code F70 Ineed to know what it means


Hi,


F70 and F71 are two logic board error codes that point at a communication error between the main logic module and the control pad (user interface and CCU), and between the motor control unit and central control (MCU, andd CCU that is main control module).
Repair is difficult, as motor, wiring and voltages from control modules must be tested.

Try first doing a reset, by disconnecting power cord or tripping circuit breaker and leaving power off for five minutes.

If that does not help and errors come back, then the best thing to do is calling the service number listed on the user manual.

Here extensive explanation of error codes and relative troubleshooting:

F70: CENTRAL CONTROL UNIT HEARTBEAT FAILURE
If a Central Control Unit Heartbeat Failure is displayed, no communication is detected from the Central Control Unit to the User Interface.

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

F71: 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.

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.

To get parts and diagrams try entering the full model number in one of the websites below:

Enter the model number ..

To contact a repairer, call the number listed on the owners manual or use the Fixya directory (US only)


Thanks

What does code F70 on the washer mean?


The "F70" error code is indicating a loss of communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the user's interface board on the right hand side of the console. The main top can be taken off by removing the screws along the back edge of the top. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the top.

Possible Causes/Procedure:

  1. Check for continuity of the user interface harness
  2. Check the wire harness connections at the user interface board and the Central Control Unit.
  3. If the unit will run and rotate before the "F70" displays usually indicates the user interface board will need to be replaced.
  4. If the unit will not run and rotate usually indicates the Central Control Unit will need to be replaced.

3. Replace User Interface if drum is rotating.
4. Replace Central Control Unit if drum is not moving.
