My dryer is taking twice as long to dry. After checking your site it seems replacing the dryer sensor is recommended. My model has two sensor bars. Is this a two pack or should I go ahead and order two?
Answer Hello Mindy. Before ordering any parts, It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
Dryer appears to be getting warm not hot and taking about three hours to dry clothes. Any ideas or suggestions?
Answer Hello Dan. Make sure the vent is clear. You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter to see if it is good. If it is not glowing, test for power. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Changed dryer from lp to Ng. The dryer will not heat up. Steps 1. changed ports from lp to Ng 2. opened valve all the way for gas in dryer.
Converting the unit from LP to natural gas would not cause the unit to not heat. You will want to check the igniter to make sure that it is good. Test the gas coils to ensure that they have the proper resistance and double check all the wiring to make sure that nothing was disconnected when converting.
I removed a sock that was caught in the blower fan. The dryer was working, just making a rubbing(?) sound.
While apart i vacuumed everything; blower fan, lint basket, exhaust pipe, cleaned sensors with alcohol.
Now when i hit the power button, it starts beeping right away and the "check filter" light is blinking and the signal volume is lit, nothing else lit or flashing and the dryer won't start. If i hit the power button and quick turn the selector knob it will light up, as will appropriate temp, spin speed, etc but dryer still won't start. I do not see/feel any loose wire connections.
What could be the problem?
You will want to check on the blower housing to make sure that the thermistor is not disconnected or the wiring being damaged. This is the most likely cause for the filter light to flash and unit to not start.
