Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F71 is User Interface Heartbeat failure. If a Central Control Unit Heartbeat Failure is displayed, no communication is detected from the User Interface to the Central Control Unit. To resolve this issue you?ll have to:

1. Check for continuity of the User Interface harness.
2. Check wire harness connections to the User Interface and the Central Control Unit.
3. Replace User Interface if drum is rotating.
4. Replace Central Control Unit if drum is not moving


Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Hi.

Sorry for the late reply.

F71 points at a connection error between button pad and control board.

If you get similar problems in the future, and machine gets stuck in error mode with clothes inside, empty water from tub disconnecting the drain filter, located behind a panel in front lower side of appliance. After emptying water the door will normally get opened.

  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.

NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.
