Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

No Power Repairman is preparing to change control board and if that does not work, he will replace interface. Why should this problem be occuring in a 4 year old Duet machine that is only used for two people? What is the answer to this problem short of buying extended warranty?

One can cause the other to fail but that is rare
If the control board is not the problem then why would he change both?? sounds like a parts changer

    Same problem as above, Whirlpool Duet Dryer, family of two. Purchased on 12/26/2006. We purchased the extended "4 year" warranty and of course, since the warranty is up - the dryer is giving us trouble. The technician I had come out and look at the dryer; pressed on the "CONTROL ON" button and decided that the board was the issue. I could have done this, as I have, and saved myself $75 for the service call. At the cost of a replacement board, probably not worth the money. The front loading machines may look great, but they are definitely not economical to repair. I am going back to the old fashiond machines when the dryer finally just quits working! Very disappointed in the quality of the Whirlpool!

What does F70 flashing mean?


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:

  • If the error occurs when the machine is running then the problem is the interface.
  • If the error occurs when the washer is not running the problem is the central control unit.

Kenmore elite he3 dryer says PF


The PF and E2 (F02) error codes are related. The PF indicates that the dryer is experiencing a power failure. The F-02 error code indicates a Keypad/User Interface failure. The error codes for this dryer are shown in the third image below.

You could have a loose wire harness connection between the machine control board and the user interface control board that could cause there error messages and symptoms. The first image below shows how to access these components. I recommend that you unplug the dryer and then access these components. Check the wire harness connections on between the user interface control board and the machine control board. If the connections are okay then you will likely need to replace the user interface control board to correct this problem. The part number for the user interface control board is 8564396. You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website. It costs just over $100.

I had a F70 error code on my Kenmore HE Elite dryer. In the manual it does not show a F70 code. I unplugged and let sit for a while now it will not even power up.


The F70 and F71 error codes on this model of washer indicates a communication problem between the user interface control board and the central control unit (main control board). These error codes can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Try unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power. Wait 1 minute and then plug the washer back in to the see if the fault code clears. If it does, then the washer may work normally.

If the code reappears, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit. I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair this type of problem so that the correct component can be replaced.


Be sure your unit is plugged into a 3 prong grounded outlet as well.


F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself. To access the part, just pull the unit forward and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel by pulling it back, up, and off. Then remove all the screws going into the top of the control panel. Remove the dispenser drawer and remove the screws coming in through the dispenser. Remove the screws coming from the inside of the dryer going forward into the control panel, then remove the control panel (it's just clipped in on the bottom. After that you can disconnect the wire harnesses to the front interface control board and replace that part.

Power will not come on to control panel. Door light comes on and the locked light comes on


Check and make sure you have proper voltage at the plug, reset yoru breaker.
Also are the led indicators dim (lights) on the interface board. Watch your terminology as there is a control board but it has no lights on it. Id hate to see you order a control board when you need an interface board. Well if the leds are dim then remove top and reseat all ribbon cables 4 each on the interface board and the control board. then turn it back on and see if it works. If not replace interface board then the control board in that order.

Replace thermal fuse and door latch and still does not run. Power on and beeps once.


Was the thermal fuse blown?
Look at the led indicators on the front of the dryer are any of them lit but very dim? If so it will be a loose connection on the flat cable assemblies 4 each from the interface panel (one with the lights and knob) to the control board located on the top left side of the dryer. If that does not work then Interface board then control board in that order.
If the led indicator appear normal then id look at the control board.
