When gas is used up in carb. shuts down

Firstly make sure the air filter is clear of any debris. If this is clear it is going to be a fault on the carb itself. It may need the fuel line un blocked or the gaskets replaced.

Whrilpool f21 fault fix

its a very common fault but there is a lot of frustration around its fix the fault is a block causing your pump to not work correctly the whole pump pipe lines and so on need to be taken off the filters need to be cleaned to perfection the pump must be taken apart and cleared of any small parts that could have pumped into it. then when your sure there are no blocks filters all clean re assemble the unit re connect the hoses and plug the washer back in and it will work fine.

The start/pause button is not working on my candy smart class a washing machine

the pump is blocked up or the filter
once you take the blockage you need to reset the machine

too do this turn off the mains power
press and hold usually the start pause or menu button
and turn the mains on
wait a few seconds and let go
should clear the fault detection
if it is the filter or a blocked bad pump
and its clear then the machine will reset

F70 fault

Obviously the machine believes the drain cycle is not complete. It is running the drain pump until the level it "sees" is all the way down. Somehow you or your technician will need to get inside the beautiful stainless panels to adjust, clean or replace the drain level sensor...

My dryer panel is blinking F70 and smells of gas

F70 code is warning you that the exhaust vent airflow is insufficient.
  • Check the exhaust hose in the rear of the machine and make sure it it not crushed or kinked. The vent pipe should be rigid metal not flexible foil or flexible plastic.

  • If using dryer sheets, rinse the lint filter with hot water to remove filmy residue that can restrict airflow through the filter

  • Inspect the outside vent hood for any blockages.

  • The exhaust system may need cleaning. Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers.

No communication between UI and CCU


I think that by this time you already fixed the problem. The codes indicate usually a fault that is either CCU or MCU.

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...

Will not dump water

Blocked filter???
Normally on the front, behind a flap or the kick panel.
Pump fault???
If the filter is ok, then the pump could be faulty or blocked. Tip the machine back, resting against a wall at 45 degrees looking up into the machine you should sea a black or grey rubber pipe that looks like a bellow, if you squeeze this you may clear the pump without the need to remove it.

Gaggenau Ed 220/221 Error Code F 70

I had the same fault F70. Poured several liters boiling water no result. I decided to take the oven out the kitchen and put on the table. Be carefull, its edges are sharp. You need to disconnect water supply, first close the tap, then remove the water pipe from the oven by hand. Remove also the drain pipe from the sewage connection. You cannot detach it from the oven. Unplug power supply. Then start unscrewing the top panel. Once removed you can unscrew also the side panel left side (by looking at the oven from the front door side) and finally remove the back panel. You will need a special screw driver as the screws are star type.
I found out that there was some little water on the bottom panel of the oven. There is a safety sensor which is in contact with the bottom panel on the left side of the oven near the electronic board.
If this get wet, the faul code F70 appears.
Also some water was in the hole of the level sensor in the pump chamber next to the other sensor (white plastic box)
So dry all the water with the help of kitchen paper and finally with hair dryer.
Put back all teh parts and voila', it works again.
