Moisture sensor not working

Can I replace this or repair this myself of do I need a repairman?

Thanks My sensor stopped working when we moved to a new house. I've been using the timed dry, but it is getting slower drying the clothes. I just open up the back and checked for lint clogs. I did find a lot of nails and other things my two year old must have shoved down the lint filter slot! I'm drying right now with the vent off to see if there are any clogs to the outside. I've read that if it dries well, then it's problem with the hose going to the outside. It's probably clogged or damaged. Our dryer hose is extremely long (I blame the architect) and goes through our crawl space. I suspect a problem there.

Once I discovered that the problem was not the dryer, I went into my crawl space and discovered the plastic duct was clogged with lint. Apparently the duct was not changed since the house was built over five years ago! The 4" duct was also duct taped to a 3" connector. Additionally the line ran into the crawl space at a 90 degree angle in a space that was only 2" wide! My husband adjusted the way the line ran into the crawl space and replaced it with a rigid aluminum duct. The auto sense works on my dryer and it takes only 30 min. to dry a load of laundry instead of 1-1/2 hours!

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F2-E6 error code indicates an open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the temp.sensor needs replacement. If you want to be sure then before replacing the sensor you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then 1120 ohms then it needs replacement however, if the reading is between 1080-1120 ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. However, after reading your problem it seems that the sensor is causing this and replacing it is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I just bought a Samsung DV665JW dryer. Before it is completely dry, it stops, shows "end" on the display. I didn't take out the clothes for a while and then after about 15mins, it started drying again,...


This sounds like it is on a permanent press cycle. When it says end the clothes are dry.

Having said that....... If it is NEW this is a warranty repair. The moisture sensor is most likely the culprit causing the end of cycle trigger pre-maturely. Check around the moisture sensor for anything like bobby pins, straight pins, toothpicks (i.e anything foreign. Check the 2 strips and along the edges thoroughly for any foreigen matter.

If it is 2nd hand the moisture sensor is probably bad and passing false dry signals to the control. Again check for foreign debris before even thinking about replacing parts.

If you find nothing then before you buy parts there is a test for the moisture sensor. Just respond here and we can go from there.

Most likely a repairman - but review the info below to determine

convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

It heats, but won't shut off when using the moisture sensor


The moisture sensor is shot and needs replacing It works till it sees dry air going past it (As set by the maker)if it thinks the air is still moist it will keep on trying to dry it. Call out a repairman or buy a sensor and fit it yourself

it's probably your sensor assembly. go to www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-MDE7400AY-%3d%3d&z=100 . That is the best possible solution and not too expensive. Good luck.

Dishwasher has stopped partway through cycle, not pumped out


Not a moisture sensor, a water depth sensor to gauge fill level.  Not the problem here.  There is a solenoid valve under the machine.  It routes the water either to the wash arms or to the drain.  It is likely  jammed so that it will not open to drain the water.  Often, these items can be disassembled and cleaned.  Just shut the power before going in there.  If the valve can't be cleaned or the coil is bad, it will need replacement.

Moisture sensor not working


No parts needed for this repair! Get a warm damp cloth and reach inside the rear of the dryer and clean the **** off the 2 strips of metal in the back called sensors. Next get the rear of the timer panel off and yank out the small computer board next to the timer. This is the moisture sensing board. Get some alcohol and clean the copper contacts. Shove the board back in and retry.

If you checked the batteries, thats about all you can do unless you want to get a schematic, and trouble shoot the remote if you have electronic know how. go to http://www.remotes.com and enter your model number to see how much an original replacement will cost. A universal should work for the power volume and channels, but will not work for the menue or setup.
