Hi lost contact yes E70
Hi thanks no problem.May I have the full model # ***** your Dryer so I can be sure of the issue?Thanks Tech Mike
This I can can tell you no matter the model. The error 70 is a code relating to a faulty NTC sensor on the appliance. It could be the one in the element or the wiring to it.if its a washer dryer it could be the dryer NTC sensors or broken wiring.common one is broken wiring to the sensor on the condenser of a washer dryer.remove the rear panel and look for the wiring broken off (sometimes orange color).In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.Please rate my service thus far.EXCELLENT (5 Stars) would be greatly appreciated.There is NO cost to rate Kindly;-)Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you..Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.Thank you and have a nice day!Tech Michael
