F70 code on washer nothing will work


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F70 is a communication error which is caused when no communication is detected from the user interface to the CCU (central control unit). Please check the wiring to user interface and the central control unit, if that is fine and you can see the drum rotating then replacing the user interface is recommended repair. If the drum won't turn then the CCU needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Shows f70 and the door won't open


First there is a way to open the locked door and get your clothes out. On this model of Kenmore front load washer you can manually release the door lock.Unplug the washer from power. Remove the front lower inspection panel (see the first image), and reach up to the bottom of the door lock and pull down on the small teardrop tab. This will unlock the door lock and allow you to get the clothes out.
The F70 error is a control failure that occurs when a signal from the main control to the interface (touch pad) is not detected.
This can be caused by a loose harness connection at the interface or main control. The image below will show how to remove the top so you can check for lose connections. Be sure to unplug the washer first.
The F70 is an internal control problem. It can be caused by a failed central control board or an interface problem. The way to determine which part is bad when the error occurs is as follows:
  • If the error occurs when the machine is running then the problem is the interface.
  • If the error occurs when the washer is not running the problem is the central control unit.
The control and the interface are available from the following link: Sears PartsDirect . Use your model number to order the correct part for your washer.

I have gotten F70 and F71 messages and the door will not open. What do I do about this?


Hi.

Please read the tip below, explaining how to fix F70 and F71 problems. The comment applies to Whirlpool built kenmore washers like the one in question.

F70 and F71 are two logic board error codes that point at a communication error between the main log...

Regards.

Error code F70 on Whirlpool frontload washer WFW9600


Welcome spammailmd

You said, you tried to use the delayed wash last night but when we went to it this morning we had error code F70. There is a small possibility that the door was not closed properly, but we forgot to check. We opened the door, closed it and restarted it on a non-delayed wash and it started just fine. The manual for the washer is not very descriptive with the error codes, it simply says to restart and if that doesn't work call the repair man (what is this a microsoft windows machine?).


Whirlpool codes:
“F” codes other than F20, F21 or F22
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select
DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains,
call for service.


Let me know that it works for you or if you have any questions.
Thank You.
