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?

Dryer works in timed mode but not automatic. Kenmore 417.93142400


Please define does not work? But if I may guess, try testing your sensors. There are usually drawings packed with the dryer to tell you how they function.

DRYER WILL NOT SHUT OFF ON AUTOMATIC SETTING


Most of the time when a dryer won't shut of in automatic, it is because the sensors inside the drum are bad and cannot sense when the clothes are dry. If your dryer works good on a timed dry then is probably the moisture sensors.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer Lockout function stuck


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

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.

Kenmore gas dryer have replaced coil set and


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?

Need the manual to understand operation, problems with drying


Hi,

84052/94052 is the stock number and 417.94052500 is the actual model number

How long did you let it run on sensor? Some models may need to sense for a while before they decide to start heating.

The knob can be turned either way

Sounds like the moisture sensor has gone away. Not sure where it is located on this model, though.
