Customer Question
Our Whirlpool clothes dryer...

Our Whirlpool clothes dryer is overheating and we are getting a F-70 code. Can you tell me what is wrong?

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

It is a 2010 YWED945OWL1

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

If I can?

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I have checked the vent and the filter. They seem fine.

The F70 is a control failure and the overheating would also support its failure. Access is gained by removing the screws from the rear edge of the top panel and sliding the top back and lifting it off. The control is mounted above the drum on the left. All connections simply unplug and plug in. Be sure to unplug the dryer before removing the top.
