SOURCE: shuts down when start button is pushed

There is likely a short on the ECU and it must be replaced. Further testing should be conducted by a professional in this case.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Error Code F1 means that the control is either bad or the wiring harness to the control has some issues. If you remove the front lower panel taped to the inside wall is the tech manual that should help. As you have already replaced it and the problem remains then check the wire harness as that might need replacement, if that appears fine then the new part might be bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

How do I know which user interface I need for an error code F71? I'm getting an F71 error code. The washer will not start at all. Model WFW9200SQ00 Whirlpool


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.

The washer has been displaying error code F 71. We unplugged the washer for a few minutes and plugged it back up but now it will not come back on at all.

I have whrilpool front loader, when washing some times I get a error F70 & F71. The washer stops, clothes are not rinse alaway. What can I do. I don't have my munual handy. Thanks for your...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F70 is a communication error which is caused when no communication is detected from the user interface to the CCU (central control unit). Please check the wiring to user interface and the central control unit, if that is fine and you can see the drum rotating then replacing the user interface is recommended repair. If the drum won't turn then the CCU needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a Kenmore model 11049962603 that displayed an f-71 error code. I ordered a new cpu computer from sears and installed it. the machine seemed to work for one or two loads. now it displays an f-70...


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.

What does code F70 and F71 mean on my whirlpool duet?


Error code F70 means no communication is detected from the Central Control Unit (CCU) to the User Interface while F71 is the reverse; no communication detected from the User Interface to the Central Control Unit (CCU). This could simply mean a loose or poor connection between the two communicating boards.

Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the three screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the washer then slide the panel rearward and lift it off the washer.

Disconnect the User Interface ribbon connector from the left side of the Central Control Unit (CCU) and clean the connector and terminals thoroughly. Reseat the connector several times to ensure a good connection between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the User Interface.

It is highly recommended to clean and reseat every wiring harness connector from the Central Control Unit (CCU) to prevent the same problem in the near future.

Reconnect every wiring harness to the CCU and make sure all connectors are firmly seated. Slide the top panel back into position and secure it to the rear of the washer with the screws previously removed.

Let us know if the problem persists for further assistance. We will be happy to resolve your problem.

I have a Whirlpool duet washer and on the control panel the light that says control locked is on and the washer does not work - is there a way to reset it?


Press the Pause/Cancel button twice then press and hold the End of Cycle Signal button for three seconds until the Control Locked light turns off. If it doesn't work, unplug the washer for at least fifteen minutes to reset it.

Replace the user interface/LED assembly if the Control Locked indicator still lights up and not allowing you to operate the washer.

Remove the three screws at the rear of the top panel securing it to the back of the washer. Slide the top panel back and lift it off the washer.

Disconnect the user interface/ LED assembly ribbon connector from the left side of the central control unit (CCU) and release it from the wiring harness brackets.

Pull the dispenser drawer out and press down the release tab at the back of the drawer to pull it out completely.

Remove the screw that was covered by the dispenser drawer in the recessed hole next to the drawer opening.

Open the door and insert a flat-bladed screwdriver into the notch at the bottom center of the control panel to release it.

Press and release the tab behind the right hand side of the control panel securing it to the cabinet.

Gently pry up and release the top of the control panel and pull it off the washer.

Pull the cycle selector knob off the control panel and release the tabs securing the user interface/LED assembly to the control panel. Lift the user interface/LED assembly from the control panel once all the tabs are released.

Install the new user interface/LED assembly into the control panel by inserting it into the tabs from one side to the other until it is completely secured.

Install the control panel on the washer and the top panel in reverse of the removal steps.


Note: Please specify the model number of your washer for the specific replacement parts.

Dryer control locked light is on and dryer won't start!


Press the Reset Button for 1 minute see if it resets?
or
Are the lights lights DIM on the interface panel ( front of unit with buttons & lights) If so Turn power off to the dryer then you need to remove the top of the dryer lid off and locate the two ribbon cables that go between the CCU and the interface board. as well as two small ribbon cables between the two parts of the interface panel. use a paper clip or screw driver press on the center tab and reset each cable one at a time. Then turn unit back on and try it again.

if none works it could be CCU or Interface panel

Washer will not turn on.


Sounds like the main control board instead of the interface. Remove top and locate CCU. Shold be on R side or rear at the top. Unplug all connections and replug. See if that helps. If it helps and it happens again, replace the board. FYI. Whirlpool electronics are horrible for loose connection problems.
