Dryer runs for about 10 seconds and then turns off
Dryer is only 2 years old. I tried several different cycles. In any setting the dryer only runs for about 10 seconds. I checked the filter which is clean. I also check that I'm getting good airflow out the vent. I also experimented with a full load of clothes, just a couple of items and then also empty. After the dryer stops, all the lights on the cycle selector knob blink for a couple of seconds and then go off.

There might be a latch switch loose or defective that does not let the dryer engage the rest of the circuitry to function properly. Click here to know where to find that latch switch.

The dryer completes the cycle you have set. If you do not remove the contents at the end of the cycle, the dryer performs the start-stop routine you describe until you get around to removing the contents. Eventually even the start-stop routine ends and the contents just lie in a heap until removed
there are 2 different kinds of units made back then. one has a push to start button that could have a stuck contact causing the unit to think you are pushing the button and want it to run again. the other could have a stuck motor switch and thats not available separately. you would have to replace the motor. try to clean any lint out of the motor if you have that type. use compressed air to blow the lint out of the motor. it usually works to get the lint out and it can cause the switch to stick.
first, check your exhaust, you have to make sure there is no buildup at all inside it. this is the most common problem to cause this. if lint gets backed up, there is a sensor that shuts down the heating element after only a few seconds. hope this helps
You said, We frequently have to start the dryer several times during one load.
The dryer will run fine for a while then all the sudden give 3 beeps
and then the F 70 code. Sometimes when you go to start the dryer you
can press power and the panel will light up for about 3 - 5 seconds and
then shut off again, this will happen several times in a row. We have
been unable to solve this issue ourselves and are becoming very
frustrated since this washer/dryer set are less than a year old. Any
help you could offer would be greatly appreciated. (If we are unable to
fix this problem soon, it is likely that the dryer will make a sudden
leap from the second floor window to the backyard)
Try this first!!
This is an error code.
This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.
If this does not help, you said the machine is not one year old. All appliances have a 1 -year warranty and the service and parts are free for that first year! I hope you succeed with my recommendations. Please contact me with your progress1
