The F70 code is warning you that the exhaust vent airflow is insufficient.

  • Check the exhaust hose in the rear of the machine and make sure it it not crushed or kinked. The vent pipe should be rigid metal not flexible foil or flexible plastic.
  • If using dryer sheets, rinse the lint filter with hot water to remove filmy residue that can restrict airflow through the filter
  • Inspect the outside vent hood for any blockages.
  • The exhaust system may need cleaning. Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers and this website:
