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!
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.
