It seems the only solution any one has is to pull the plug. If this doesn't solve problem replace board. Seems to me if so many people have this same problem with fairly new washers its a design flaw and should be addressed by whirlpool. $600 for a new board seems outrageous for a new washer.

Kenmore Elite HE 3t steam washing machine shows a code of F71


Hello,

The F71 error code means "User interface heartbeat failure" to put that in simple terms what it means is,the touchpad/cycle selector is not talking to the main control board. To check to see why that code is being displayed ya would need to make sure that all the wire plugs between the selector and the control board are tight and in fully pressed in and making good contact at the respective connection point on the circuit board.

If ya find the wire connections to be good and tight,ya would need to start the washer and if the drum rotates the cycle selector would have to be replaced. If the drum does not rotate the main control board would need to be replaced. oldtech2332_146.jpg

What do the following codes mean: F70 and F71. My washer is a Kenmore Elite HE5t. Thank you


Hello,

The F70&F71 mean basically the same thing

F70 means the main control board is not communicating with the cycle selector/touch pad control
F71 means the cycle selector/touch pad controlis not communicating with the main control board

What needs to be checked is the wires between the main control(CCU) and the selector(user interface) for good tight connections
If all connections are good and tight the CCU has to be replaced IF the drum will rotate under power from the motor

OR if the drum will NOT rotate under power of the motor the USER INTERFACE needs to be replaced

If you get similar problems in the future, and machine gets stuck in error mode with clothes inside, empty water from tub disconnecting the drain filter, located behind a panel in front lower side of appliance. After emptying water the door will normally get opened.
