I have replaced the control board and still have the issue. There is NOT a solution to this F70 error. Sears should Recall the machines.

How old is the unit?
if it is less than one year it is under warranty and you can get it serviced for free call kenmore,
the problem is the main controller.

Whirlpool F 70 error code indicates communication problem between the component electronics and the control electronics.

Disconnect power to the machine for about 30 minutes, reconnect it, and try again. If it doesnt correct it self change control board.

My dryer is displaying F70, and will not work, other than drum light. The dryer is a kenmore smartheat quietpak 9 model 11087081601

The F70 error indicates a heartbeat failure of the central control.

If the error occurs while the washer is running then likely it is a problem with the interface. If the error occurs while nothing is running then the central control is most likely at fault.

If the error occurs while the motor is running then the console/membrane is most likely at fault.

This problem can be caused by a short in the low voltage circuit.

It is a difficult problem to pin down and the parts are to expensive just to replace so I suggest a technician check and repair this problem.

What does F70 flashing mean?

The F70 is an internal control problem. It can be caused by a failed central control board or an interface problem. The way to determine which part is bad when the error occurs is as follows:

  • If the error occurs when the machine is running then the problem is the interface.
  • If the error occurs when the washer is not running the problem is the central control unit.

F70 Message appears and dryer stops WORKING

The F70 error apparently is a design flaw that happens to many of these machines in this series. It has something to do with a failure of the components to communicate with each other. The main circuit board most likely needs to be replaced hope this helps

What does the code f70 on a kenmore elite dryer mean?

F70 is a "communications error" message and the first thing to check is loose wire connections.

If a loose connection is not found, the controller board will probably need to be replaced.

Please report back here what you find, OK?
