Can't change dry options...

I can't change it from sensor dry, adjust the time drying, or dryness level. Is there a reset button any place?

Dryer is set to run 40 mins when it shouts off at 0 on the dryer is has only run 20 mins according to my stove timer


Dryer has a moisture sensor that detects the clothes are dry so it shuts off earlier. If the clothes are still damp then the dryer vent may be plugged and causing the unit to run hot or not able to fully evacuate the air from the machine. Clean the vent and make sure it's completely free and try again. If it short cycles again and clothes still damp you may have a sensor controller issue.

Dryer continues to run past the preset time.


If you are not running the load on "Time Dry", the machine will automatically use the sensor dry settings. Meaning that it automatically adjusts dry time with the dampness of the load. If you look near the time window you will notice that it says "est. time remaining". If you would like to have the unit run for just 20 minutes use the time dry button you will notice the dryness level light will turn off. The means your unit does not care how wet or dry the clothes are it will just run for 20 minutes. Hope this helped explain things.

The start button is flashing red and beeping and the drying cycle won't start. Help!


  • If the machine shakes or makes a lot of noise, make sure the dryer is level. Some shaking is normal, but it shouldn't bounce around like it's itching to go somewhere. Adjust the leveling legs. They just screw and unscrew. Check to make sure the load inside the dryer is properly distributed and is not all clumped together.
  • Match the control settings to the type of load, and make sure you're not overloading the dryer.
  • Check that the ducts aren't blocked if the clothes take too long to dry. Look for lint or missing socks. Check to make sure the ducting isn't kinked, and make sure the outside dryer vent flap moves freely and isn't blocked---by snow, for example.
  • Sort your clothes by weight if they aren't drying properly. Lightweight clothes should be dried separately from items like comforters.
  • Make sure the lint drawer is empty.
  • Press the "Stop" button or press the "Lock" button for three seconds if the controls don't work. Press the "Power" button to wake the dryer up if it won't start. Make sure the "Delay Start" button isn't flashing if the machine fails to start. Press "Start" again.
  • If you see only lights displayed on the screen and no numbers, it's normal. The dryer has detected a low level of moisture. Other normal behavior is when the time remaining jumps to a lower number---it's revising its estimated time remaining. When you can't make a selection and the dryer beeps twice, the dryness setting is incompatible with the chosen dry cycle hope this helps please tell me if it does

I have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR6646BI-12 the clothes feel warm but not hot and they are still damp


The Dryness Level allows adjustment of how damp or dry the clothes are at the end of the cycle.
  1. Make sure the correct Cycle has been selected for the type of fabric being dried.
  2. If the correct cycle is selected and the clothes are still coming out too damp, use the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button to increase the Dryness level.

  1. If the highest Dryness Level setting was selected and the clothes are still damp, the Customer Focused Drying Mode settings that are built into the machine can be adjusted.
Dryers come from the factory set to Drying Mode 1 (default). Drying Modes 2 and 3, include additional drying time.
Note: This change will affect ALL Auto Dry cycles.
  1. Machine MUST be in Standby mode before beginning. (Standby mode = Plugged in, Power off)

  1. To select drying modes, momentarily press the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button (Whirlpool) again. The dryer will beep, and the display will flash and show the next drying mode number.
  1. With the door open and the display flashing the desired drying mode number, press the Start button to save the drying mode and exit diagnostics.
  1. Press the Pause/Cancel key at any time to cancel changes and exit from this mode.
Hope this works............

Does not dry thoroughly in sensor mode heard that softner sheets may require cleaning the sensor . How do you find and clean sensor.


First, I always set the dryness level at the maximum dry level, because the Korean's "Normal Dry" is what we call "Damp Dry". The sensor is located just inside the door, by the lint filter. If you stick your head into the dryer drum and look back toward the filter you will see it. (two curved metal bars, about an inch apart and about 5 inches long.) Clean with soap and water, or I've heard rubbing alcohol works. If your sensor bars need cleaning, the dryer usually will go quickly to the 6 minute mark after starting.

AD is auto dry you may need to clean the sensor or you may have a fauilty one ...Auto Dry Loads dried using the Towels, Heavy Duty, Normal, Perm Press, and Delicates cycles will dry automatically at the selected temperature to the desired dryness level. The dryer uses sensing bars to sense the moisture level of the load as it tumbles through heated air. Auto Dry cycles save time and energy and protect fabrics. The estimated drying time will be displayed for about 5 minutes, then the outside of the display will light up in a circular track to indicate the drying time is automatically being determined by the sensors. When the load has reached the selected dryness level, it will continue to tumble, unheated, during a Cool Down period. This helps reduce wrinkling and makes items easier to handle during unloading. The estimated Cool Down time will be displayed. Drying time varies depending on size and dampness of load and fabric type. If the load is too small or almost dry, the sensing bars may not detect enough moisture to continue the cycle and the cycle may end after a few minutes. Select a Timed Dry setting to dry such loads. Room temperature and humidity, type of installation and electrical voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying time. For cycle selection turn the knob on the front of the dryer control panel. The light will illuminate next to the cycle selected. The following is a brief description for what cycles should be chosen for certain items and materials to be dried.

What is the best setting to dry jeans on a kenmore 9000 electric


Use Auto Dry for most things and vary the "dryness" level to more or less depending on the thickness of the material you are drying. Auto is most efficient and will adjust itself for finish time.

Auto dry and select "more dry" before hitting start, for jeans or towels.

Kenmore HE4 Dryer leaves clothes wet


From the techincal document found in the dryer bottom panel

TEST #4a Dryness Level Adjust

NOTE: If the customer is complaining about the clothes being damp and the moisture sensor passes TEST #4 "Moisture Sensor Test- step 3, then the total dry time can be lengthened by changing from a "Lo" for short auto cycle to "Hi" for longer auto cycle.

1. Activate the Diagnostic Test Mode. Press the following button sequence: MORE TIME ~ LESS TIME -+ MORE TIME --+ LESS TIME - all within 5 seconds

1. In diagnostic test mode, press and hold the Auto Dry Level key for 5 seconds. The dryer will beep and the current auto cycle mode will be seen on the display. The factory default setting is "Lo".

1. To select a different auto cycle mode, press the Auto Dry Level key again. The dryer display will flash and show either "Hi" or "Lo"

1. With the display flashing the selected auto cycle mode press the Start key to save the setting and exit diagnostics (the Start key in this mode does not start a drying cycle). The result will be stored in EEPROM of the control board.
