Could you tell me...

Could you tell me what a F70 code means when using a Whirlpool duet dryer

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

WLI bought dryer June 2011 and model is WHI WED955OL

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

I have someone coming tomorrow but I want to make sure there isn't something I can do

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

My husband laundry going so the machine started and stopped after two minutes, then the code F70, we tried other settings other than timed dry but the dryer just stopped, code three lines.

That error means there is a problem with the electronics (see the attached page). Most oftentimes, it is a failure of the main control board. The control is easy to replace yourself and may be done so with very little disassembly. Would you like information to repair it yourself?
