Tips for a great answer:
PROCEDURE: Before proceeding, press OFF, OFF, START to enter Diagnostic
mode and verify the error codes. Ensure AM software, UI software and EEPROM
CHECKSUM versions appear on the lower text line. If AM software and EEPROM
versions do not appear, UI and AM may not be communicating. Verify this for the
lower oven UI and for the microwave (upper oven) UI. The lower oven UI will show
the AM software version for the lower oven appliance manager, and the microwave
UI will show the AM software and EEPROM versions for the microwave appliance
If the lower oven UI is not displaying the AM software version, go to UI IS NOT
DISPLAYING AM SOFTWARE VERSION.
If the upper oven UI is not displaying the AM software and EEPROM versions,
go to UPPER OVEN UI IS NOT DISPLAYING THE AM SOFTWARE AND
If lower oven UI and microwave UI are both displaying an error, go to LOWER
OVEN UI AND MICROWAVE UI ARE BOTH DISPLAYING AN ERROR.
UI IS NOT DISPLAYING AM SOFTWARE VERSION:
A. Unplug oven or disconnect power.
B. Open the back panels and make sure the P6 and P2 connectors are fully
inserted on the appliance manager and on the lower oven user interface board.
- If they are not plugged in, plug in connectors and go to step F.
- If they are plugged in, go to step C.
C. Visually inspect all wires between P6 on the appliance manager and P2 on the
lower user interface.
- Make sure wires are not cut or pinched.
- If the wires appear to be intact, perform a continuity check between
P6-1 of the appliance manager and P2-1 of the user interface board.
Complete for P6-2(AM) to P2-2(UI), P6-4(AM) to P2-4(UI) and P6-5(AM) to
P2-5(UI). All the measurements made should be less than 5 ?. If any of
these measurements exceeds 5 ?, go to step E.
D. Replace the appliance manager. Ensure all connectors are properly inserted.
E. Replace the wiring harness (signal). Ensure all connectors are properly inserted.
F. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
G. Plug in oven or reconnect power.
H. Observe for longer than 1 minute to determine if error has been repaired.
I. If error does not appear, initiate a bake cycle. Let the cycle run for at least
- If no error occurs, cancel the cycle, the problem has been repaired.
- If error occurs again, restart the troubleshooting procedure at step A.
At step D, replace the lower oven user interface board if appliance
manager has already been replaced.
- If both are replaced the problem has been repaired.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

This type of diagnosis will require taking voltage readings at the control board with a meter to find the root cause of the failure. Please see the rest of the information provided & the images below for the accessing, testing & replacement instructions.
1). Put the washer into the Diagnostic Test Mode per the Tech Sheet. 2). Did the Right Hand Interface light up? 3). IF the Right Hand Interface did not light up in Step 2 check for 5 VDC on the UIP3 wire connector coming off of the control board to the Right Hand Interface from (Pin 1 to Pin 2) and from (Pin 1 to Pin 3). 4). IF you do not have the 5 VDC then remove the MI3 connector from the Machine Control board. IF the display lights; replace the Motor Control board. IF the display does not light; replace the Machine Control Board. 5). IF you do have the 5 VDC then replace the Right Hand User Interface. 6). IF the Right Hand Interface does light up. Lock the controls by pressing the control lock button for 3 seconds. 7). Once the control has been locked press the power pad. IF the control lock light blinks when the power button is pressed it tells us the power button is sending the output from being pressed to the right hand interface but the right hand interface is not responding and will need to be replaced. 8). IF the control lock light does not blink when the power button is pressed replace the center user interface.

The F70 error is a control failure that occurs when a signal from the main control to the interface (touch pad) is not detected.
This can be caused by a loose harness connection at the interface or main control. The image below will show how to remove the top so you can check for lose connections. Be sure to unplug the washer first.
The F70 is an internal control problem. It can be caused by a failed central control board or an interface problem. The way to determine which part is bad when the error occurs is as follows:
