F70 means that your touch control panel isn't communicating with the main control board under the top panel of your dryer mounted to the left side wall properly. You'll need to remove the screws coming in from the back of the top panel of the dryer. The top panel then pulls straight back, up, and off. Now check the wire connections from the front interface touch control board to the main board on the left side. If everything is secure and unplugging the dryer won't reset the issue---the front interface board would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say. Below is a link to the front interface board for your model.
