Question about Dryers
On auto cycles the timer seems to go faster than normal. It would start at 55min for example, but then go down fast and be done in 15min with the cycle while the clothes are still wet. The weird thing is that if we pick the exact same setting on a manual cycle, it would run the correct amount of time and dry the clothes. So what is the difference between these cycles? Is it just some type of sensor used on the auto cycles? The timer works manually, so it couldn't be the timer. We can use it on manual cycles but it woudl be nice to use the auto ones again. Thank you for any suggestions.
Try cleaning the 2 silver senser bars located inside the dryer drum on the door side with isopropyl alcohol and lint free wipes,these bars sense moisture and control timer speed,and when they get coated with the chemicals in dryer sheets they become coated and can no longer sense the damp clothes (these sensers use capacitance to sense moisture)
