Re: Kenmore dryer error
I opened the unit and replaced a 1.25A fuse which had blown. check your wiring diagram. look in back panel and check the little fuses but this is the one you need to replace. 1.25a
thats the main cause of this error
Based on my brief internet research on this issue, after recieving the same error code, it appears to result from a communication issue between the electronic systems of the machine. Personally, I'm returning mine. Too many posts about this error.

The error code f01 indicates the primary control board failure. Before you replace that board I suggest that you unplug the dryer for 2 minutes then see if the error come back. If it does replace the board part number W10110641.
The fault code E1 means the electronic control detected the thermistor is
open. It's either the wire harness connecting the thermistor and
electronic control is broken or the connection is loose or the
thermistor is indeed open. Measure the resistance of the thermistor then
refer to the temperature and resistance table for the normal
thermistor resistance values.
This is a communication error with the motor. The first spot I would check the MCU on the lower front of the unit. Remove the lower front panel three screws check the wires there unplug and plug back in if that does not work check the wires on the top board. The top has three screws in it then it will slide back and off.
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.
