For Whirlpool Sensor, Moisture (Part Number: AP4054174)

About 6 months ago, my dryer started to continuously run when it was on the automatic cycle. The timed cycled runs just fine, it is getting hot inside, and the ventilation has been checked. Is there anything else I should check before replacing the the moisture sensor? Seems odd to me that a piece of metal will go bad.

ANSWER Barrett, You will want to clean the sensor bars before replacing. They can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol. The sensor bars can get a build up from fabric sheets on them that can cause the unit to run continuously even though the clothes are dry.
