The F70 error on this model washer is a central control unit (CCU) heartbeat failure. This means there is communication loss from the central control unit and the user interface. The troubleshooting procedure for this error is to first check the wiring and connections between the main control and user interface. Look for broken, loose or corroded wires.

Questions For Error Code F70

Model Wfw9200sq/02

I'm getting error code F70. I unplugged the washer and then plugged it back in after waiting several hours. The machine still will not start. Is this fixable? Approximately how much will it cost to repair?

It is repairable. If the drum on the washer rotates when in a cycle replace the user interface. If the drum is not rotating or moving at all in a cycle replace the central control unit. Both parts are listed below:

If you need directions to change the part let me know which one you ordered and I will give you step by step instructions probably in video format. 


Power Up

I was getting a F70 error. So I pressed the cancel button and started my cycle again only to get the same error code. So I then unplugged the unit waited about 30 seconds and plugged it back in. Now the unit will not power up. It just beeps upon pressing the power button. Any suggestions?

That means you either have a bad user interface or a bad central control unit. When you try and start a cycle and the drum on the washer rotates replace the user interface. If the drum is not rotating or moving at all replace the central control unit. If you need part numbers I would need the model of your washer. You can post a new question requesting the part information just include your model number this time. Thanks.

The F70 code means:

Check for continuity of the User Interface harness. 2. Check wire harness connections to the User Interface and Central Control Unit. 3. If the drum is not rotating, unplug the MCU from the CCU (the MI3 or M13 connector). If the code goes away, then replace the MCU. If the code does not go away, replace the CCU. 4. Replace User Interface if drum is rotating.

The part number for the interface is WPW10428011.

The part number for the central control unit is WPW10424936.
