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.

I have a 2009 yanaha yzf-r6 that was wrecked. what is a code 70

Sorry I don't know- I am not a Yamaha technician. The most likely answer is that it refers to a sensor overload to the Engine Management System. This could cause a percieved under rev at the percieved road speed. Or it could be your attempt at a wheelie failed. In the event it was the latter, I would suggest practising on an old trailie in a field, that is how I learned

2010 yamaha r1 shows fault codes 66 & 70. what do these codes represent. thanks.

CODE 66: "Open or short circuit of steering damper solenoid lead."
Check the ESD fuse has not blown first befoe checking the wiring itself.
CODE 70: This model is equipped with an engine auto-stop system. The engine stops automatically if left idling for 20 minutes. In this case, the multi-function meter indicates error code 70, but this is not a malfunction. Push the start switch to clear the error code and to restart the engine.
Hope this helps

Make sure that the key barrel is all the way out. Then replace this example code with your factory code and try it
Example combination: 70-55-05

  1. Do two rotations to the left stopping at 0.

  1. Do two rotations to the left (Anti-clockwise) on the third time past 0 go to your first number.

So – 0 to 0, 0 to 0, 0 to 70

  1. Do one rotation to the right (clockwise) on the second time round stop at your second number.

So – 70 to 70, 70 to 55

  1. Turn directly from your second number to your third number heading to the left.
So – 55 to 05

  1. Push down the handle.

Copier problem - service code F1-70

F1-70 is communication trouble between the machine and the sorter finisher. Check the cables connecting the copier and the finisher and power off and on machine. Should clear the code. If problem persists, may need a new board.

I would also check the ground between the copier and finisher.
