Dryer performs reasonably well until it gets to a certain part of the cycle, then the timer seems to stick. I wondered if this was the moisture sensor, but perhaps timer or motherboard? I look forward to your answer.
Answer Hello David,
This is likely to be a ducting issue since the moisture and heat inside the unit can stall out the timers' advance. If you could re-post with the model number from the units' I.D. tag, we can look up specifics and give a more precise diagnosis.
Dryer does everything right except it stops before clothes are dry using sensor mode. I have replaced heating element, thermal fuse and internal-bias thermister. Is the moisture sensor the suspect?
Answer Hello Joe,
There may not be a problem at all. This is dependent on how many clothes are in the unit when it cuts off before the items are dry. You see, there have to be enough clothing in the drum to pass wet clothes across the sensors every revolution. If not, the timer will time out before the load is dry.
Hi there! My dryer turns on but won't start. I noticed that the status is not lighted up and not sensing anything. It only beeps for a second. Could it be the reason why it won't start? Thanks.
Answer Hello Albert. Check for a broke belt and test the thermal fuse and door switch. Either can cause the issue your having. If the fuse is bad, check the vent and make sure the temperature is cycling on and off. If it does not cycle, you will need to order and replace the main board in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
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?
Answer Hello Ron! The videos available on our site are intended to give you a brief idea on the removal and installation procedure of the part. Your model and part may differ than what is displayed in the video. Hope this clears up any confusion. Thanks!
