Newer Kenmore dryer automatic sensor not working.

Hi, I have a newer Kenmore dryer (model GNSR465EB3WW) and the timed dryer function is working normally but the automatic sensor is not operational. Ie when you put it on automatic, the sensor is not shutting off the dryer when things are dry but it keeps running. Where should I first look to solve this problem

    I have a Maytag Neptune Electric Dryer.
    The timed dryer portion works fine, but the automatic temperature does not dry the clothes enough? They are damp when the dryer shuts off.
    What should I look at?

That is a bad motor. Run winding is gone. This video shows how to replace it on a newer model:

If electric then the thermostat or the heating element has failed.
If gas: First thing to check is the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

Could be a bad flame sensor, or a bad thermostat. If it is a newer model with a thermal fuse, it could also be bad. Then there is the timer too, but that's not usually suspect. What model is it?

Kenmore elite dryer no heat


You may want to check if the heating element needs replacing. Most Dryers have 2 heating elements that are found by taking the back off, some of the newer dryers have 3.

I have a kenmore electric dryer. It dries for about 20 minutes then stops. If you wait for about 10 minutes and start it back up it continues to dry again.


Hello There,

1st- Check to see if your not running on overload with a clogged dryer hose the one that goes outside
2nd- your timer may be going bad or you have a bad sensor thats resetting itself.

Is this a newer model???? What year and model number?

On a kenmore conventional dryer they had for a million years the heating element is on the rear of the machine on the right. Some newer models "princess type" have a lower front panel and a heater that just yanks out for easier servicing.
