There may be several small screws holding it in place. Make sure those are all removed first. Then, take a small screwdriver and place it at the point where the plastic tabs meet the circuit board. Give the screwdriver a slight twist with one hand and gently pull up on the circuit board with your other hand. Repeat this process along one side of the circuit board, one tab at a time. Once you get one side of the circuit board loose, the rest of the tabs are easy to get loose. Once you get the old board removed, insert the new board in place, securing one side of the board first. Then, snap the board down, making sure the remaining tabs snap in place. Do not touch the surface of the circuit board with your hands. Handle the edges of the board only to avoid the possibility of damaging the board. I hope this helps answer your questions. If you are still having difficulties, please reply to this thread and let me know.

Amana front load washer model num NFW7500VW00 CODE F70 WONT COME ON OR START


I have had a good look around and this seems to be a common problem with Maytag Amana etc machines.
Trying search Maytag f70 code and you will see.
It seems to be a faulty Control unit. Cause number 4 below seems to be what you have.

Here is one answer from a tech guy.

"The "F70" error code is indicating a loss of communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the user's interface board on the right hand side of the console. The main top can be taken off by removing the screws along the back edge of the top. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the top.
Possible Causes/Procedure:
1.Check for continuity of the user interface harness
2.Check the wire harness connections at the user interface board and the Central Control Unit.
3.If the unit will run and rotate before the "F70" displays usually indicates the user interface board will need to be replaced.
4.If the unit will not run and rotate usually indicates the Central Control Unit will need to be replaced.
if you feel you cant do this you will need a technician to come and look at this. "

Tip

Kenmore Oasis Constant Audible Beep


If you own a Kenmore Oasis washer that has an audible beep that occurs randomly, or remains constant, whether or not the appliance is in use, the following information explains what causes the problem and how to correct it.

This is a common and very well known problem with the Oasis that commonly occurs due to a failed or shorted relay on the operator/user interface board inside the control panel. These boards are not serviceable and usually requires you to replace the operator/user interface to correct the problem. The board is located directly behind the control knob. You can usually order the part at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

Just type in your model number and look under the "Control Panel Parts" heading. All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing. The first three sites I listed also inlcude helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.

If you do not find your model number listed at some of the websites, use the part number you obtain from the Sears website and do a Search by Part Number at the other sites. Sometimes the model number may not be listed, but the parts are still listed. Sears tends to have a more extensive data base of model numbers, but may not always have the better price.


To replace the user interface board, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer.

2. Locate and remove the retaining screws in the back of the control panel. With the screws removed, the control panel will lift from the back first, then off. NOTE: Be careful when lifting the panel, there is a small interface cable plugged into the control board.

3. Remove the interface connector and pull the control knob off.

4. Lay entire panel face down on a soft surface (such as some folded towels).

5. Remove the user interface cover (this is item 10 if you use the drawings in the Sears website).

6. With the cover removed, take a small flat blade screwdriver and pry back the tabs that hold the board in place. There will be several around the entire perimeter of the board.

7. Once the old board is removed, carefully insert the new control board making sure you don't put it in upside down. Mark the location of the interface connector plug as a reference. NOTE: Do not handle the surface area of the board with your hands. This can cause damage from electro-static discharge to small components of the board and render it unusable. Hold the board by the edges only.

8. Reinsert the interface cover and flip the control panel over to its upright position.

9. Reinstall the control knob and make sure you plug the interface connector back in.

10. Reinstall control panel by inserting the front edge of the panel into the grooves on the washer top casing and lower it back. Tighten all mounting screws.

This is a pretty simple repair job. The hardest part you may encounter is removing the old board. The small tabs can be difficult to bend sometimes. Also, use care not to apply too much pressure on the new board when you install it. They can be difficult to snap back into place at times. Just take your time.

If you have questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this information is found to be helpful.

HELPFUL HINT: You may try unplugging the washer and remove the control panel and try cleaning the interface connector to see if this helps BEFORE you order parts. Sometimes it helps.

Cabrio top load washer (WTW6600SB1) start button broken - I can feel that the device behind the "Start" display has broken. It doesnt depress like usual. I removed the entire control panel. When...


Unplug the machine or disconnect power then remove the three hex-head mounting screws from the rear of the console. Tilt the console forward toward the front of the machine then disconnect the user interface board cable connector from the machine/motor control and lift the console off the cabinet.

Carefully pull the cycle selector knob off the shaft then turn the console on its face for access to the user interface control board. Unhook the wires from the clips then remove the three screws securing the board. Using a flat-blade screw driver, pry the cover's two locking tabs out then unclip and remove the cover from the console.

Lift the locking tab of the encoder then turn the encoder counterclockwise and lift and remove it. Carefully pry the font edge of the user interface board up then pull the board forward and remove it from the console. You may glue the broken part back in place or replace the console with part number W10070060.

Probably a control panel error


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.

Kenmore Elite Oasis Model 110.27072600 Wigging out


The user interface is covered by a cover plate. There are a series of tabs that hold this cover in place around the perimeter of the control board. Use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the tabs back (one at a time). Also, you have to remove the control knob form the front panel, first, before the board will come out. There's an illustration you can use at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the model number you provided and look under the "Control Panel Parts" heading for item number 10. This is the user interface cover that I'm speaking of. There is only one small wire harness to speak of that goes to this control board. Is this what you are talking about?

I have the same problem... could you send me instructions, too?


Okay...Fixya discourages us from having direct contact with customers outside the realm of this website, so I hope you will accept my reply in this forum.

If you are talking about replacing the operator interface board, its very simple. Just follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. Remove the three screws in the back of the console.
3. With the screws loosened, the console will come of by lifting from the back first. Use care not to damage the small wire harness under the console.
4. Remove the wire harness from the User Interface board and remove the knob (by pulling) from the front panel. Lay the entire control panel face down on a soft surface (like a stack of towels).
5. Carefully remove the white plastic cover plate that is installed over the control board.
6. Once the cover is removed, carefully remove the old interface board by prying gently on the series of tabs around the perimeter of the board. There may also be some mounting screws to remove as well.
7. With the old board removed, carefully install the new board by inserting the control knob shaft through the hole first. Then, gently snap the board in place, making sure all the tabs around the perimeter of the board are in place. Reinstall any small mounting screws. NOTE: Do not handle the surface of the board with your hands. Handle the edges only, to avoid electrostatic discharge from your body causing damage to the board.
8. Reinstall the protective plastic white cover over the interface board.
9. Flip the console upright and reinstall the wiring harness and control knob (The knob only goes on one way).
10. Carefully insert the console in the front grooves on top of the washer, first. Then lower the back and reinstall the screws.

The repair is pretty straight forward. However, if you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Now...it was recently brought to my attention by a consumer on this website that there is a recall on this circuit board. The following paragraph is the direct direct quote:

"I too had the misfortune of dealing with the continuous beeping on my washer (model # 110.27062600). No code was given.I called the Sears hotline and asked for the manufacturers warranty department. I then called the recall line at (800)659-7026 and after giving my model number and serial number they discovered is was indeed recalled or being "upgraded"! They have ordered the part and are sending someone out. For those who have already paid to have it repaired I would call Sears and ask for a refund. Good luck!"

-joycdex

If I understand this correctly, you may not have to purchase a new control board. Or, if you did, Sears may refund the cost and provide someone to install it for you. It may be worth your while to contact them to find out. I hope all this information is helpful to you.

Kenmore Elite Oasis Washer


The problem is the User Interface board behind the control panel. This is a noted problem that often occurs with this model washer. The only option, I hate to say (unless you want to listen to the washer beep all the time) is to replace the board.

The part(s) you need are available at searspartsdirect.com. Simply type in your model number and look under the "Control Panel Parts" heading for item number 7 (User Interface - part #8564393). You may also consider item number 12 (User Interface Harness - part #3407184) to rule out the possibility of a bad wiring harness. You can try to do end to end continuity checks before considering a replacement just to be sure. The contacts are sometimes difficult to get to with a multimeter, though.

This is a fairly simple repair to accomplish on your own. Just follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. Remove the three screws in the back of the console.
3. With the screws loosened, the console will come of by lifting from the back first. Use care not to damage the small wire harness under the console.
4. Remove the wire harness from the User Interface board and remove the knob (by pulling) from the front panel. Lay the entire control panel face down on a soft surface (like a stack of towels).
5. Carefully remove the white plastic cover plate that is installed over the control board.
6. Once the cover is removed, carefully remove the old interface board by prying gently on the series of tabs around the perimeter of the board. There may also be some mounting screws to remove as well.
7. With the old board removed, carefully install the new board by inserting the control knob shaft through the hole first. Then, gently snap the board in place, making sure all the tabs around the perimeter of the board are in place. Reinstall any small mounting screws. NOTE: Do not handle the surface of the board with your hands. Handle the edges only, to avoid electrostatic discharge from your body causing damage to the board.

9. Flip the console upright and reinstall the wiring harness and control knob (The knob only goes on one way).
10. Carefully insert the console in the front grooves on top of the washer, first. Then lower the back and reinstall the screws.

The repair is pretty straight forward. However, if you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS I tried to find parts for this washer at others websites, but could not find a listing for it.
