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.

F 14 error code on whirlpool duet washing maching. repair man say it needs ccu. How can I replace it and where can I purchase the part? Can this error code mean anything other than bad ccu?


Remove the bottom front panel 2-3 screws at the very bottom. Inside there should be a tech sheet that will explain error codes and how to trouble shoot them on your specific machine. Replacing the CCU is not that hard but getting to it is tricky. See following link to video on repairing duet http://www.rakerappliancerepair.com/ApplianceLibrary/Washers/WashersLibrary.aspx

Whirlpool duet gives me an error code of F 02


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that there's an obstruction in the drainage system somewhere. Most commonly, the drain pump reservoir needs to be checked and cleaned. The access screws are on the lower toe panel directly below the door in the FRONT of the washer. They are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may need to prop up the two front feet of the washer to access them (a 2x4 works well for this). The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574284-checking_the_drain_pump_on_a_front_loade

It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

Replacements can be purchased online at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I hope you find this information helpful. I have seen this error code generated by something as simple as a loose connector on the NTC sensor. Hopefully, you can resolve this with no expense. If you do require any parts, however, you can locate parts with illustrations at searspartsdirect.com or repairclinic.com. If you require further assistance, please let me know.
