    OK, check all the wiring connections between the interface board and the CCU. If the connections are good and you still get the error, replace the CCU. Here is the part to order.http://bit.ly/RlWVcl

    As you can see I am new at this, my model # wfw9200sq, just how difficult this to replace, every thing that I have found tells me tha a code f-70 is either the ccc board or the interface board, what do you think?

SOURCE: f06 error code on Whirlpool duet washer

I have the whirlpool Duet 9150 with the same issue. I removed, reseated and reconnected every connector at least 4 times with the same random result of F06 to the point where it no longer finished the load. I then removed the motor control board again and sprayed it down with electronic cleaner along with all connections by disconnecting them , spraying them down and then reconnect and connected a few times to ensure good contact. I then tried again and the F -06 code came back. I then ordered the board for $ 150 online . When the new board arrived 4 days later, my wife tried the washer one more time and it worked. I have performed over 2 dozen loads . The board was never replaced. It appeared that spraying the board and connectors worked.

SOURCE: Kenmore/Whirlpool Duet -how do i take off user interface panel?

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Have Duet front load dryer. When pressing Hold/start button, hear 3 fast beeps from the back of the unit, display flashes and dryer will not start. Any suggestions?


This is a common problem with the Duet and the solution is to replace the Motor Control Board (MCU). The control board has a short and the new control boards are revised to address this issue. Here is a link to the new control board.
Here is a copy of my service manual to help you replace the control board.

Good luck and keep me posted.Richard Roth

Whirlpool duet getting error code F70 and F71. When hitting start button, getting a clicking sound and nothing is happening. Cannot open the washer door as it is locked with clothing inside it.


Hi jreib29,

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.


Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Whirlpool front load duet washing machine has error code f 71, what does that mean and how do i fix it


Hi

F71 is a communication error and is displayed when there is no communication from the User Interface to the Central Control Unit. First check the user interface harness for continuity and then check the wire harness to the user interface and CCU. If the drum rotates then replace the user interface, if the drum is not moving then replace the central control unit (CCU). Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Code f 71


Check to see whether the laundry drum to the washer moves. If it does move, then the user interface needs replacing. If the drum is locked and will not move, you need to replace the central control unit on the washer.

Getting f71 on washer now, whirlpool duet washer won't start. tried disconnecting it, but now nonw of the buttons on the washer light up.


The F70 error apparently is a design flaw that happens to many of these machines in this series. It has something to do with a failure of the components to communicate with each other. The main circuit board most likely needs to be replaced. Not the user interface as you replaced. The user interface is simply a touchpad control.

When first troubleshooting, I felt a communication error normally causes this but I too replaced the unseinterface and has to replace the control. Good Luck!

I have a whirlpool washer model wfw9200sq02 that is giving me a code of f70 what is this and how can i fix it


Most likely a bad user interface control. Open the machine. Remove and clean all wiring connectors and replace them for a good tight fit.They all can become loose and or corroded over time. If that does not correct the problem replace the user interface control.
