Good evening. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your dryer today
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 2 months ago.
This F70 error means that your front interface control panel isn't communicating with the main board properly. Try to unplug the dryer for 5 minutes to see if the electronics reset. If not then the front interface control board would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say.
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
any idea what the cost is to replace that board? in other words, is a new dryer going to be cheaper?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 2 months ago.

A new dryer wouldn't be cheaper but I'd need the full model number located on a sticker just inside the door way to look up the exact cost. Typically it's about $250 or so? Not cheap.

That is just the part itself, and it's part number WPW10279709

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
