    Default Whirlpool Duet WED9200SQ0 code F70

    Model Number: WED9200SQ0
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: Less than 1 year

    My brand new Duet is giving an F 70 error code after only a few hours of use. I can't find anything documentation describing what the code means. Does anyone know? Thanks!

    I talked to Whirlpool this morning and they said that the F 70 error code indicates some kind of communication problem between the component electronics and the control electronics. They referred me to a repair tech in the area.

    I called the repair tech and talked to him on the phone. He suggested that I disconnect power to the machine for about 30 minutes, reconnect it, and try again. I did that, and it seems to have solved the problem. I'll be doing more laundry this evening and hopefully it will continue to work! It certainly hasn't given me a good first impression.

    Thanks for the reply.

    My problem returned so I called the store I bought it from and insisted on a return/exchange. They brought me a new machine which I've been happy with to date.

    Unhappy lucky you

    You are so lucky that you got the unit replaced. The support guys have come and tried to fix the issue for 2 times now but I am still struggling with the problem and they are not ready to replace this unit at all until they come to a conclusion that the problem cannot be fixed
    I was on the phone with their corporate supervisor and I am so god damn frustrated now, they are not ready to replace my dryer

    I have had the same problems since I bought this dryer. Seriously not impressed.

    Right after I bought mine, about 3 years ago now started doing the F70 thing on me.
    I worked around it for nearly 2 years....Checked the Vent( Had the Chimney sweep do this), was totally clear, turned the dryer off a number of times, at the breaker for 30 minutes or more, that didn't help. It would flash F70 on me, even if I hadn't used the thing in a couple of weeks.
    Paid to have an Appliance Tech change out the two companion circuit boards. Everything seemed find after that.... until......

    The last few months, it has been showing the F70 again... doing everything I did above.... and again, even if I haven't used the dryer for a couple of weeks....it keeps coming on and flashing the F70.

    Since I have had the two main boards replaced, what else do I need to do to finally get this thing to work right?

    We would need the model number of your dryer.

    Click here: Appliance Parts at RepairClinic. 125 Brands. 365 Day Returns.

    Then you will see a link that says: Help me find my model number.

    I'm attaching the tech. data sheet for the Whirlpool Duet Dryer, read on page 3 where it lists the F70/F71 error codes and follow what it says to check.
