SOURCE: washer displays DL error
The FdL fault is a door lock error code. It sounds like you may have a bad door latch. Unplugging it and/or pushing the cancel button will not clear the fault as long as the fault condition exists. At best, you may have to replace the door latch. At worst, the CCU (main computer) could also be bad, causing the fault. The door latch can run about $50. The CCU is about $200. Double check all you wiring first before replacing any parts. I hope this will help you.

Hi, this is a main control panel issue. here is a procedure you can preform to gain control back.
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 persist, you will have to have the control panel repaired by the service tech.

SOURCE: NO POWER JUST BEEPS F70 CODE
Bad main control or ccu here is a link to the repair manual.

Here is your Answer
Error code 70 means a Central Control Unit Heartbeat Failure. There is no
communication detected from the Central Control Unit to the
User Interface (the part that you touch in the middle to set cycles).
1. Check for continuity of the User Interface harness.
2. Check wire harness connections to the User Interface and
the Central Control Unit.
If these connections are ok then
3. Replace User Interface if drum is rotating. Part number is W10164402
4. Replace Central Control Unit if drum is not moving. part number is 8183259
Hope this has been very helpful
best regards michael

If you unplug the M13 connection from the ccu (main control) and the error goes away then replace the MCU (motor control unit) if it does not go away then replace the CCU

I provided a complete list of error codes for this type of washer in the image below. The error codes vary by the exact model of HE3t washer that you have. Since you have an HE3t that is displaying the F70 and F71 codes, the list below should apply to your model. These are not listed in the owner's manual because they are intended for technicians. Use extreme caution if you follow any of the troubleshooting described in this information sheet. Unplug the washer and shut off the water supply before accessing internal components.
The F70 and F71 codes indicate that you have a communication error between the CCU (Central Control Unit or main machine control board) and the user interface touch pad assembly. Here are some troubleshooting tips:
Make sure that you have the washer plugged into a properly grounded 3 prong 120 volt AC electrical outlet.
Unplug the washer for 30 seconds to allow the control boards to power down and reset. Plug the washer back in but do not touch the power button (or any other buttons) for 1 full minute. This may reset the control board. Pressing the power button too quickly after reapplying electrical power to the washer can cause the F70 or F71 code since the CCU does not have time to recognize the user interface control.
If the above tip does not help then the most suspect component failure is the MCU (motor control unit -- motor control board at the bottom of the washer beside the drive motor). You can check for this failure by unplugging the washer and then pulling the MI3 connection on the CCU. The wiring diagram below has the MI3 connection highlighted in red. The connection has blue wires. The third image below shows this connection on the control board. The connections are labeled on the control board. Press the tab at the bottom of this plug down and then pull it out. Power up the machine with this connection unplugged and don't touch any buttons for 1 minute. If you then press the power button to turn on the washer and don't get the F70 or F71 code then the MCU at the bottom of the washer will likely need to be replaced to fix this problem. A technician would normally be needed to verify this failure and replace the MCU. The MCU is expensive ($423).
This troubleshooting information is based on a common HE3t model that displays the F70 and F71 codes. If you need more help, submit additional details and the full model number of your HE3t washer.
