SOURCE: same problem but I have a 3 week old maytag 9000

From everything I have read on the F70 code (can't seem to find an exact explanation of what it is) It seems like people are getting replacement dryers due to a electrical problem within the dryer control circuitry. Since it is only 3 weeks old, get it replaced. Good luck

Turn off the water or disconnect the water hose to your dryer.
Call your serviceman and tell him to order a new water solonoid for your dryer.
You can dry without the water hooked up to the dryer.
The steam cycles, however, will not have steam due to the absence of water.

Dryer displays F 70 code. How do I get it to stop?


Unplug the dryer for 30 minutes. Then reconnect the power cord to the outlet. This will reset the code temporarily. Unfortunately, the code means that the central control unit (clock) isn't communicating with the rest of the components correctly. You probably will need a new clock or dryer (depending on the warranty status). If the unit is under warranty, contact Whirlpool or the store where you bought the dryer (if it is brand new).
I wish that I had better news for you.

We have a gas dryer whipool duet . It dry the towel but it still litle damp and the flame it good , no vent hook up , and it run for 70 minute cycle ,. Any idea why that happen . Please hepl


If you are not venting the moisture from the towels away from the rear of the dryer that could be causing your problem. If the dryer is up against the wall try either moving it away from the wall or hooking a vent hose to the discharge and at least pulling the other end of the host around to the side of the dryer. The dryer pulls air into it self from the rear and bottom of the dryer so it could be pulling the moisture from the towels right back into the dryer making it take longer to dry. Hope that helps

Check your dryer venting for obstruction.  Take the vent hose off and run the machine,  If it works with the venting disconnected, It is between your wall and the outside of the house.  If it still has the same problem it is somewhere in the exhaust.  If the dryer can't circulate air, nothing will dry.

Duet gas dryer shuts off after 15 min


I cleaned out the vent that was clogged pretty good, put dryer back together (a solution I read in this blog), and now it is working fine. I was testing with bottom open.
