My gas dryer is not shutting off on auto, but stops on timed dry. The sensor bars seem fine and have continuity when shorted at connector on control board. Any other things to look for?
Answer Hello Dan,
The problem is your duct. It is either crimped, clogged, or too long and complicated. Think about it like this: The dryer has moisture sensors inside it. If the exhaust cannot allow the moisture to escape, it will blow past the felt seals into the cabinet, which is actually the air intake, (note the louvers on the back of the unit), where it is recirculated back across the clothes and sensed again. I have argued with customers for years over this exact issue and the only way I can prove it is to dis-connect the exhaust duct. After about two minutes it is obvious that the timer has advanced. Check the exhaust and I'm confident you will locate the problem.
I purchased this part and I am having trouble installing the part. It appears the part should have been a two prong instead of the single prong that I got. Could you please supply me with the installation instructions? How do you get the wires up into the vent housing? The wires are not long.
Answer Hi Richard. These are the correct moisture sensor bars part # 503625 for your unit. We are sending the service manual to assist you. The flat ends individually hook up to the center female holders built into the face of the dryer air duct assy. part # 37001141. the 90° end goes through one side and allows the wire to hook up to it from the front side of the dryer cabinet. Thank You.
