SOURCE: F70 error code

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.

How do I turn on bell on my dryer


From the Whirlpool user manual:
(OPTIONAL) Your dryer may have an End Of Cycle Signal. The
signal is helpful when drying items that should be removed
from the dryer as soon as it stops.
?
On some models, the End of Cycle Signal is fixed.
?
On other models, the End of Cycle signal is part of the
Start button and is selectable. Turn the PUSH TO START
button to ON or OFF. The signal will sound only if the
selector is set to On.

On Whirlpool duet steam front loading DRYER...What does the error code F70 mean?Do you have to have a certified whirlpool appliance service professional to repair?


F70 code says...
Replace the machine control electronics. You should first unplug the machine and then remove and plug back in all connectors on the front panel model as well as the electronic control module.

If that doesn't take care of the problem then it may be time to consider replacing the rear board. The FSP # 8183259

The control board is part # 14 in the link below.

Whirlpool Duet dryer time skips mins.


clean the stainless steel sensor pads located just inside the dryer door with isopropyl alcohol,these sensors register moisture in the garments and adjust drying times accordingly,when you use dryer fabric softener sheets it coats these sensors and throws the system off,make sure to shut off power to unit as this alcohol is very flammable,then leave door open to air out before re-powering up unit

F70 Message appears and dryer stops WORKING


The F70 error apparently is a design flaw that happens to many of these machines in this series. It has something to do with a failure of the components to communicate with each other. The main circuit board most likely needs to be replaced hope this helps
