I was told and watched the video for the replacement of the moisture sensor. The video showed replacement of one, but on the video and my dryer showes to have two. Is this right?

How do you clean a moisture sensor bar ?
Answer Hello Dzyck. You use a rag and rubbing alcohol to clean the bars.
Dryer stopped. When you select start the sensing light only comes on. Is the sensing unit located inside the lint filter area bad? Watched video.. need suggestions
You will want to check the door switch and the thermal fuse on the blower housing to make sure that they are good. The dryer is acting like it has started but if one of these is bad then it will cause the issue you are having.
When trying to use the sensor function of the dryer it does not dry the clothes. Only the timer function works to dry them. Could it be the sensor bar?
Answer Hello Noel,
The only thing that can make the automatic cycles not work when the timed dry cycles work is the exhaust duct. There has to be a crimp or clog in it. To prove this, remove the duct from the back of the unit and start it on an auto dry cycle. The timer will move noticeably in 5 to 10 minutes.
