Question about Washing Machines
The Problem: The washer may be beeping three times, showing a F70 or F71 error code, and not starting.
Cause: The communications between the electronic components is incorrect
Correction: Use the diagnostic charts below to diagnose F70, F71 and "not starting" complaints.
You have a bad (motor control board ) or motor control board wiring harness issue, the motor control is located in the cabinet bottom on the left side if looking at the front of unit. It is actually maybe more accessible if you remove the rear panel. Run the above test first, M 13 is a small connector with blue wires and is located above the large connector with black wires. it has been my experience that this is a motor control issue Hope this Helps Good Luck

Tips for a great answer:
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.
