Question and Answers

Q:

Washer F70/71 error

A:

Marc H. posted some good links for previous answers that should help you with this F70/71 failure. As you can see by the engagement in those threads, this failure is fairly difficult to diagnose and repair in most situations. That second answer provides the more detailed testing. I recommend that you perform those tests and see if you can determine the cause of this problem. You could have a bad motor control board (also called the MCU -- Motor Control Unit). A number of other failures could also cause that F70/71 code.

You can order parts from this page: Kenmore Elite Washer 110.49962602 Parts . Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components.

If you need more help, reply with additional details based on the recommended tests.

Q:

chainsaw almost impossible to start even after going through all the cleaning and instructions 71 years old need help on this.

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the chainsaw. If the fuel mixture in the chainsaw is older than 5 weeks old, it should be drained. Then refill with fresh fuel mix. If this does not help I suspect there is a problem with the fuel system. I recommend checking in the fuel tank first. When you look in the tank, you should see a fuel line with a white filter attached to the end. Then inspect the fuel line. If it is hard and brittle, it has to be replaced. Here is a video that shows how to replace the fuel line. If the fuel line is fine, I suspect the carburetor is to blame. The carburetor will have to be cleaned or replaced. Here is a video that show how to clean the carburetor. Before you remove the carburetor, make sure to note the fuel line and cable connections. This will save a lot of frustration later.

Q:

Weedwacker Craftsman 71 71102 engaging the head

A:

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. I looked up the model number your submitted. This model has a clutch that drives the head. Once the engine speeds up the clutch kicks in and drives the head. This is normal. Your older trimmer did not have a clutch.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark.
