My Kenmore Dryer has a Fabric Care Dryness Control that no longer advances the timer while using that feature. The timer will advance if there are no clothes in the dryer which lead me to believe the moisture sensors were bad. However, after replacing the moisture sensors, the dryer is still not advancing the timer with clothes in the dryer. I will add that one of the wires connected to one of the old sensors was very difficult to remove which may mean it has some corrosion, but I tried to clean the connector the best I could by scraping the inside of the connector plug (carefully).
What other part would I need to replace if the moisture sensors are not the problem in this scenario where the Fabric Care Dryness Control feature is not functioning properly with damp clothes in the dryer?
ANSWER KenmoreDryerHelp, Once you're sure the sensor bars and the wires are OK and the circuit checks properly, the defect would most likely be in the electronic control board 3398084 located inside the control panel. If there is a damaged resistor or triac on the board, this could cause issues similar to your description.
