Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
How do I replace the user interface control for a Kenmore HE5 / Whirlpool Duet? Where are the screws to remove the front cover?
It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
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.

is a communication error and is displayed when there is no communication from
the User Interface to the Central Control Unit. First check the user interface
harness for continuity and then check the wire harness to the user interface
and CCU. If the drum rotates then replace the user interface, if the drum is not
moving then replace the central control unit (CCU). Hope
this helps...please post back for further assistance.

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
