Kenmore HE5t washer and F70 error

My washer is one week old and has been used 4 times. Yesterday it stopped and displayed F70. I did the rinse and spin cycle and it worked fine the next time. This has since happened two more times. Any idea?

    I have the same problem on a Kenmore HE3t washer (F70 error). I researched on many sites & concluded the CCU needed to be replaced. I have since replaced the ccu & still have the same problem. Ran self diagnostic tests, which continues to stop at F70 error. Anyone with suggeted next step? Unit is just out of warranty.

There is NOT a fix to this issue. Sears should recall the machines but as you can see from all the posts, they won't. Do not buy and if you can, return it.

My dryer is displaying F70, and will not work, other than drum light. The dryer is a kenmore smartheat quietpak 9 model 11087081601


The F70 error indicates a heartbeat failure of the central control.

If the error occurs while the washer is running then likely it is a problem with the interface. If the error occurs while nothing is running then the central control is most likely at fault.

If the error occurs while the motor is running then the console/membrane is most likely at fault.

This problem can be caused by a short in the low voltage circuit.

It is a difficult problem to pin down and the parts are to expensive just to replace so I suggest a technician check and repair this problem.

My Dryer Kenmore Elite HE5 show the Code F70...


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.

My kenmore he5t washer will not turn on. The on


I have the same problem . If I power cycle mine enough times I eventually get a F70 or F71 code. My research online suggests that the user interface board has a problem and needs to be replaced.

The good news is the warranty covers these boards for two years. The bad news is they are $360 if you are out of warranty.
