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.

If you unplug the M13 connection from the ccu (main control) and the error goes away then replace the MCU (motor control unit) if it does not go away then replace the CCU

We had the same exact problem. Service tech came out and diagnosed bad pressure switch, Part # W1015652. Swapped it for a $135 new one and it seems to work just fine now.
This would have been an easy fix for me to make had I known what to look for. Unplug and shut water, remove top cover, follow small diameter (1/4"?) black tube up from wash drum to where it plugs into the plastic pressure switch housing. Remove switch from its bracket, unplug wire harness and black tube, and replace.
Service tech said that this is due to using too much detergent, suds will creep up into the pressure tube from the wash drum and get into the small circuit board inside the pressure switch housing. He also recommended against using Kirkland Signature brand detergent even though it has the HE emblem on it. Best to use one of the major brands and only 1 to 1.5 tablespoons at most.
A google search for "Maytag 5000" reveals that this is a major problem because it is the 5th search result. "Maytag 5000 problems" search shows that this is the #1 problem with these washers.
