Question about Dryers
My dryer has stopped sensing the moisture content of the clothes.
I'd like to know the part #, cost and location of the moisture sensor. And possibly the degree of difficulty for repair.
My guess is your PC Board (PCB) is shot and needs to be replaced. From the manual: The PCB measures moisture across the sensing bars on the front duct assemby (it is possible, but unlikely that the sensing bars have lint over them which may be causing a problem). As the clothes slide past the bars the PCB reads the current across the bars. When the clothes are dry the current ceases so the PCB advances the timer. There should be a min of 1 M ohm across the bars when dry. The resistance should be lower when mositure tracks across the bars. To test the bars check the resistance when dry, then wet your finger and place it across the bars and check for resistance. Again...it is very unlikely the bars are the problem. More likely it is the PCB. Part Number WE1M418 for the DE09 (similar to the DE08, but check to make sure with your local appliance parts person). How to replace the PCB: Open the console; unscrew and remove the PCB cover; disconnect the PCB connector; unclip PCB from its holding clips. Reassembly is the reverse procedure. NOTE: The PCB is NOT, repeat NOT, the timer!! It is located on the inside of the console on the left hand side of the instrument cluster
