My washer won't turn on. It just beeps when i

My washer won't turn on. It just beeps when i push the power button. Did the unplug thing and checked the door. When I plugged it back in it said F70, tried the thing mentioned up top about trying a different cycle. Didn't work. Unpluged it again and back in again and now it's back to not even letting me turn on the power. It just beeps. Whirpool WFW9200SQ00. So fed up with this machine I'm going to buy a new one.

    I've done the service call thing. After 7 times, and changing every part including the control panel they brought it to Ottawa, supposedly fixed, 4 loads late and it's not working again.

    It is now flashing F71

Hi, this is a main control panel issue. here is a procedure you can preform to gain control back.

Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select
DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START.

If the problem persist, you will have to have the control panel repaired by the service tech.

    This F70 code is a service call but, the above procedure may work if the damage isn't bad.

Ge adora washing machine beeps when pushing start with door closed

Hit the power button until there is NO display . Unplug and wait a minimum of 30 seconds , plug back in and within 30 seconds hit SIGNAL button then DELAY START button then SIGNAL button again then DELAY START button again. door should lock and display t01 It is now in test mode . There are 14 different test it can run through in this mode , but all we are trying to do is check for error codes now and maybe get you back to normal, So turn the knob one click clockwise and hit the START/PAUSE button and see if any error codes come up. To exit the diagnostic mode - hit signal button then delay start button then signal button then delay start button and you are out of service test mode and back to normal. Post any error codes.

Machine turns on but won't start

this means that the door is not shut check to make sure the door button is still there its behind the door on the frame you should see a little black button sticking out if its not there you need a new door switch if its there try pushing the door button a couple times really fast sometimes this button gets stuck if that doesnt work its probably your door lock

Kenmore washer HE3T mod # 110.49972602. Unit had F70 error code. Unplugged and replugged. Now, no display on panels, power button beeps 3 times but nothing else.


F70 is a communication error between the central control unit and the user interface. First check the continuity of the user interface harness and then check the wire harness connections to the user interface and the central control unit. 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.

I had an F70, unplugged it, but it won't let me turn it back on, all the lights are out, but if I push power, it acts as though it is running, and the door is locked!

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 whirlpool duet model # wfw9400sw02 . When I pushed the power button it would not come on . Then it showed an error message of F7 or F70 unsure due to unplugging the washer . Plugged washer back in...

I have the same problem. I contacted Whirlpool,they said to call an electrician. Electrician said it was a MOTOR CONTROL BOARD. My price to fix in Fl. was $430.00, $400 for part and 30 labor. I had a coupon other wise it would have been right at $500. Hope this helps!

No communication between UI and CCU


I think that by this time you already fixed the problem. The codes indicate usually a fault that is either CCU or MCU.

Please read the tip below, explaining how to fix F70 and F71 problems. The comment applies to Whirlpool built kenmore washers like the one in question.

F70 and F71 are two logic board error codes that point at a communication error between the main log...
