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.
"F22" is a door latch failure error code. At the beginning of the wash cycle the door will attempt to lock several times. If the latch fails to lock, the washer shuts down and the error code is displayed. The following link explains how to troubleshoot and repair:
In some cases, the error code can also be displayed if the CCU goes bad. There is a door latch relay on the board that controls the door locking mechanism. The CCU is not serviceable and must be replaced if defective. In addition, make sure all the connector plugs between the CCU and door latch are connected and snug.
There is a tech sheet located inside the washer behind the lower kick panel under the door. Refer to your tech sheet for more detailed information concerned connector plug numbering and troubleshooting of the CCU.
If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
F11 is a serial communication error between the central control unit and the motor control unit.
Unplug the machine and open the panels.
Unplug and re-plug all wire connectors from the ccu to the mcu.
Inspect all wires and harnesses for a bad wire.
Could be bad components; ccu or mcu or motor
SERIAL COMMUNICATION ERROR The communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly. Possible Causes/Procedure 1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU). – Check connections of the CCU board within the housing. – Make sure all grounding switches are engaged. 3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components. 4. Plug in washer or reconnect power. 5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle. 6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor. 7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations. 8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted upside down. The wires should be to the lef t when facing the MCU connectors.
What is the model number of your washer?
Please let me know if this answers your question. Thank you, Binary Bob
Searspartsdirect.com is usually a great web source because of their extensive parts lists and exploded view part diagrams. However, in this particular case, repairclinic.com offers a better price for your CCU. If you go to both websites, you'll see what I'm talking about.
Go to the Sears website first and type in your COMPLETE model number. If you look under the "Control Panel Parts" heading, you'll find the CCU listed as item number 15. The part number is 8182280.
If you go to repairclinic.com and search using the PART NUMBER provided, you will find it listed about $120 cheaper (item number 1059617). I don't know why there is such a difference in price, but the part number is the same. For future reference: There two sites usually offer comparative pricing with Sears usually being cheaper. I generally go to BOTH and compare, and both offer excellent service.
I hope this helps you. If you need further assistance, please let me know.
Starting to see these fault codes pop up in these otherwise fine machines. The F/11 code
is just a generic code generated when there’s a communications error
between the two main control boards in the washer. These two boards are
the motor control unit(MCU) and the central control unit(CCU).
A common problem is the wiring harness jiggling loose; remove and
reseat it and that usually fixes it. If not, then you’re looking at
spending some money on control boards. Yes, I said boards, plural. The
really sucky part is that there’s no way to definitively and
conclusively prove which board, the MCU or the CCU, is at fault so,
unfortunately, that only leaves the parts changing monkey method: replace both boards,
But, on a brighter note, the electronics are covered under warranty
for 24 months. If your machine is older that this, then you’ll need to
shell out some shekels
"F11" is a serial communications error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and Motor Control Unit (MCU), or interconnecting wiring. In a nutshell, the CCU, (which is the main computer board for the washer) has more than likely failed. You can try disconnecting the connectors and plugging them back in on the CCU, but I haven't had much luck with that remedy. You will need to UNPLUG the washer & take the washer top off by removing the three screws in the back to gain access to it. Once removed, slide the top back and then lift up. The CCU is located directly behind the wash tub.
If you cannot get the fault to clear and wish to repair this yourself, you can find the part at repairclinic.com. Just type in your complete model number and look for item number 1176592. The part lists for about $157. Searspartsdirect.com also has the part for much more, but offers informative troubleshooting diagrams. The CCU can be found under the "Control Panel Parts" heading as item number 15 (part #8182695). If you wish to do some comparative pricing of your own, use the part number provided by the Sears website.
If the washer still carries a warranty, this would be covered. Doublecheck with the manufacturer on how long some parts are covered. Some of the electronics and mechanical parts are covered beyond the one-year limited warranty that generally comes with your appliance.
I know this may be discouraging news, but you can repair this yourself and avoid labor costs. It may seem expensive, but considering how much these washers cost (I know, because I own one), it may be worth the effort. I hope this helps you. Post back if you have further questions or need instructions.
