My machine had the F21 code and the inlet to the pump was blocked with change, bobby pins, small rocks, pieces of fuzz and clothing. Removed the front cover of the mahine and removed the cap on the front side of the pump and cleaned this trap area out. The pump motor quit humming and the machine worked like it is supposed to!

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.

SOURCE: E1 error code on a
The E1 displayed indicates the thermistor is open and needs to be replaced. The connections can be loose but the most likely cause of an E1 error is a bad thermistor.
If you're comfortable and confident in your do-it-yourself skills and have access to a volt/ohm meter you can check and replace this part yourself.
For replacement parts - head on over to SearsPartsDirect.com - PartSelect.com - or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend these sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
SearsPartsDirect is Sears' website for parts and has extensive diagrams and parts lists.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
