I run the dryer and it will shut off early in the auto dry setting and the intellcare setting. It however, will not heat up in the timed dry setting. I unhooked the dryer vent and vented in to room with nk difference. I also replaced all thermal fuses and temperature controler stat. I also changed out the moisture sensor and still no difference.
My next step may be replace the moisture control board.
Answer Travis, You'll need to check the circuits at the timer, with a multi meter. On all timer settings, there should be a closed circuit between terminal black 23 and blue 44. On timed dry there is no circuit, an"open"circuit between blue 44 and orange 14. When the auto dry intellidry settings the circuit (orng 14 and blue 44) should "close" so the sensor and electronic control board interface with the timer motor and advance the timer as needed. With your post description, the issue should be in the timer as far as the heating issue is concerned.
If this moisture sensor part goes bad does it stop the machine for turning on at all? We've tested all the parts and they are ok and even replaced the start/timer button and it still isn't working. Could this part be bad and cause the machine to not work at all?
Answer Hello Kristin,
First turn the breaker off and back on. Now if that doesn't do it remove the plug from the receptacle and look for burned spots on the prongs. This would be the indication of a bad receptacle. If no burned spots, remove the cover where the power cord goes into the back of the unit. BE SURE THE UNIT IS UNPLUGGED! Check the terminals for any that may be loose. If they are all tight, check the door switch. If it tests good, check the thermal fuse. The only things left are the push to start switch, the timer and the motor. The most likely cause if the unit is getting 240Vac is the thermal fuse. The moisture sensor has nothing to do with the unit tumbling.
