Hope this helps ...... F09 is a Overflow Condition If the Overflow contact on the pressure switch is Closed for more than 60 seconds an Overflow condition will occur. In an Overflow condition, the Door will remain locked, and the Drain Pump will run constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the Display is cleared. Unplug the unit to service. Potential Causes ? Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked ? Check Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU) ? Check/ Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects ? Check for Drain Pump Failure ? Check the Inlet Valve for proper shut off ? Check the Pressure switch for proper operation PLEASE rate my solution

"F11" is a serial communications error. The following link explains the possible causes and how to troubleshoot:
First, attempt to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). In many cases, this is all that is required in order to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears, follow the advice provided in the link. In the majority of the cases, I've experienced, it was the CCU that caused the problem.
If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.
