Electricity and water can be a hazard which could be life threatening, but you can operate electrical equipment in a wet environment if you are careful and follow safety precautions. Most import, make sure the electrical outlet you are using for the pressure washer has a working ground plug. Just because an outlet has three prongs does not mean the ground is working. You need to use an outlet tester which is inexpensive from a hardware store or use a multi meter to test the ground for conductivity to earth ground. Your power washer should have a working GFI (Ground fault interrupter), and you need to press the test button to make sure it is working. If your power washer does not have a GFI purchase one from a hardware store. I would also plug the power washer directly into the electrical outlet since an extension cord could have a bad ground connection and will cause the power washer to pull more current from the outlet. Make sure the power washer is raised of the ground so it will not sit in a pool of water. If you follow the safety precautions you should be safe but keep in mind water does not carry the electrical current, it is the impurities in the water which carry the current. Therefore, water could be more conductive depending on the impurity of water. However, it sounds like a loose connection in the power washer which could also be an o-ring or a washer is broken and it would b a good idea to have it fixed.

I provided a complete list of error codes for this type of washer in the image below. The error codes vary by the exact model of HE3t washer that you have. Since you have an HE3t that is displaying the F70 and F71 codes, the list below should apply to your model. These are not listed in the owner's manual because they are intended for technicians. Use extreme caution if you follow any of the troubleshooting described in this information sheet. Unplug the washer and shut off the water supply before accessing internal components.
The F70 and F71 codes indicate that you have a communication error between the CCU (Central Control Unit or main machine control board) and the user interface touch pad assembly. Here are some troubleshooting tips:
Make sure that you have the washer plugged into a properly grounded 3 prong 120 volt AC electrical outlet.
Unplug the washer for 30 seconds to allow the control boards to power down and reset. Plug the washer back in but do not touch the power button (or any other buttons) for 1 full minute. This may reset the control board. Pressing the power button too quickly after reapplying electrical power to the washer can cause the F70 or F71 code since the CCU does not have time to recognize the user interface control.
If the above tip does not help then the most suspect component failure is the MCU (motor control unit -- motor control board at the bottom of the washer beside the drive motor). You can check for this failure by unplugging the washer and then pulling the MI3 connection on the CCU. The wiring diagram below has the MI3 connection highlighted in red. The connection has blue wires. The third image below shows this connection on the control board. The connections are labeled on the control board. Press the tab at the bottom of this plug down and then pull it out. Power up the machine with this connection unplugged and don't touch any buttons for 1 minute. If you then press the power button to turn on the washer and don't get the F70 or F71 code then the MCU at the bottom of the washer will likely need to be replaced to fix this problem. A technician would normally be needed to verify this failure and replace the MCU. The MCU is expensive ($423).
This troubleshooting information is based on a common HE3t model that displays the F70 and F71 codes. If you need more help, submit additional details and the full model number of your HE3t washer.
