Washer --

The interface fried, probably lightning causing a power surge, a new one @ $152, + service call. Getting the part is a problem. It's 14 months old.

Our last washer was purchased second hand, we used it for over 20 years and it was still working when we replaced it.

Code f 71


Check to see whether the laundry drum to the washer moves. If it does move, then the user interface needs replacing. If the drum is locked and will not move, you need to replace the central control unit on the washer.

Error code f 70 and 71


F 70 overloaded
F 71 suds detect

To review: You got too many clothes up in here and you is using too much soap. These machines measure the weight. Take some things out or if you only have a small load add some things. It also measures the water quality in a load to determine IF a load is clean enough. Too much detergent throws the machine off. Then it trys to correct the problem many times and that heats up the motor and wrecks the sensors.

Basic rule of thumb:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash load

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

This reduces/prevents:

1) Musty Odor

2) Errors/Interrupted Cycles

3) L-O-N-G Cycle Times (longer than time displayed)

4) Insufficient Cleaning Results

5) Small Water Leaks from the air vent behind the washer or at the
front door gasket

6) Damaged sensors

7) Reduced Spin Speeds (laundry not spin-dried effectively)

F-70 f-71 what do they mean


Hi!

F70 Error code means Central Control Unit Heartbeat Failure. If a Central Control Unit Heartbeat Failure is displayed, no communication is detected from the Central Control Unit to the User Interface.

F71 error code means 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.

In both the above situations the following things are required to be checked and replaced where required:

1. Continuity of the User Interface harness.
2. 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 do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Whirlpool Duet front load washer won't start


The error codes it is showing don't even exist. Does the little round door latch plunger go in and out if you push it?If not, then replace the door latch. If so, you most likely have a bad machine control. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!
