I have a question on my Kenmore Elite HE5 dryer. Model

Customer Question
I have a question...

I have a question on my Kenmore Elite HE5 dryer. Model number 110.97088601

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

The exact model is 110.97088601 I would say it's approximately 10 years old

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

We have had a repair man out already--three times. We keep getting an F70 code. He has already replaced all the control boards. Apparently there are 3 of them. The code is still happening.

Ok
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

F70 is an error for communication between the boards. If you have already replaced the board and are still getting the F70 error code, the only thing left is the wiring harness between the boards needs to be replaced because something isn't making a good connection I'm sorry to say. Wiring harnesses aren't listed on parts diagrams so you'd have to contact a parts store like Searspartsdirect.com to have them look up the harness for the boards.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.

Quick question- could it be caused by too much lint in the ductwork? I have heard of this before.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

That can cause other problems but that will never cause an F70 error code.

does the harness connect to the boards?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

Yes, you would need the harness that connects directly to the boards.

Not a problem but I'm very sorry about all the trouble you're having with this unit.
