Customer Question
My whirlpool 9610 electric...

My whirlpool 9610 electric dryer had an f70 error but the whole electrical panel is flashing, not just a single button.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

May 2011

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depends

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.

any idea what the cost is to replace that board? in other words, is a new dryer going to be cheaper?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 11 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.

Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 11 months ago

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?
