Dryer starts and heats appropriately. Lint trap is clean.
Dryer will not honor time specified. E.g., dryer is set to run for 40 minutes. After operating for several minutes with display correctly reflecting the amount of time requested and then remaining, abruptly display will jump dramatically reducing the amount of time left. Say, after running only five. Unites of the 40 minutes, suddenly machine's display indicates only 3 minutes left. Three minutes later machine shuts off. Clothes are not fully dry.
Is there a part that controls only the manual timer? Other ideas, please?
Answer Rafael, The model number you supplied is incorrect or incomplete but, the flame sensor 6501EL3001A controls the ignition and heat, it doesn't control the dryer run time or dryness of the clothes. The moisture sensor bars 6500EL3001A determine when the dryer will shut off, based on the dryness of the clothes, You'll need to check the bars to make sure the bars haven't been accidentally removed, or damaged and the wires are attached to the terminals. The sensor bars are located on the front bulkhead inside the dryer drum just below the filter, in the grid area. If the sensor bars are damaged or missing the control will "think" the load is dry, and will run for a few minutes and then turn off.
