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 the code reappears, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit." from here. Hope this helps, good luck.

The kenmore elite smart wash quiet pak 9 I opened the door and threw something else in and now a light is on thar says controls locked and it wont do anything


There should be a button on the control panel that says "open door" you need to push that button and wait for the washer to shut off before you open the door. Try pushing that button to see if that resets. My guess is that you broke the safety latch when you opened the door and it will need repair.

I have a Kenmore smart wash quiet pack 9 HE5t and when I try to turn it on it make a noise but won't turn on


Please check the motor belt , the drain pump and the inlet valve. If the noise seems to come from any of these it is possible that it trips off the circuit due to a fault and so must be confirmed.
You can remove the connection to the seperate items to confirm if the panel switches on.

I think possibly your machine is not on a level surface. Try rocking the machine, if it wobbles, the feet need adjusting to level the machine. It will cause damage in the long run if not levelled.

Kenmore elite smart Wash quiet pak 9 has got the control panel set to lock mode. How can we open it?


The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.

LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked. This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons. To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.
