I need to know how to replace the sensor,279366. Can you provide step by step information. I'm not going to order the part until I know how to install it.
Answer Hello George. The model number you provided is not working. You will need to remove the back panel and unclip the retainer clips and remove the wires off the sensor bar terminals. Then remove the old sensor bars from the unit and install the new ones in revers order.
My dryer heats and has strong air flow but the clothes do not dry all the way. Bad sensor (Part # AP3094143)? Do you have a video on how to replace? Thanks!
Answer David, If the two metal strips are present on the sensor, you may want to try cleaning the sensor assembly and area with some rubbing alcohol using a cloth or tooth brush. There may be a coating of softner residue on the bars, and cleaning the bars usually solves that issue.
If you choose to replace the assembly, you will need to remove the back panel and unclip the retainer clips and remove the wires off the sensor bar terminals. There are still other possibilities, partially restricted vent pipe or hood, and vent thats too short can create an issue as well, there are also the usage cituations, overloaded, mixxed loads, etc.
The clean lint filter signal buzzes all the time but filter is clean and all the vents have been cleaned.
The filter signal is there to represent lower air flow than normal. The filter needing to be cleaned would be one reason for this and the other would be a clogged venting system. Try to take the hose off the back of the unit and see if the filter buzzer still comes on. If it does then the blockage is on the dryer side, maybe in the blower wheel. If it does not then the blockage is somewhere between the inside and outside of home.
