Could be that the heating element has gone bad or a Heat sensor connected on the side of the Heating element itself. If you can't work on these things your self it will need to be checked by a person who can. If it's very old it might not be worth paying someone to do this. The element may run you $60.00, the sensors maybe two of them are around $15.00 each and the labor?? Ya got a handy neighbor that will help for a nice Apple Pie?

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune gas dryer sense dry time at 99, little or no heat

If this is a gas dryer, I'd suggest an inspection by the gas company or qualified technician. If the jets aren't firing correctly, you are wasting gas and possibly creating a hazard.

SOURCE: my dryer dries for a short period time and senses

no. what you are getting is an over heat sense and is shutting the unit down this is a safety type of thermostat and will shut down the heating cycle prematurely as it will with a clogged vent or lint filter

SOURCE: whirlpool duet dryer - when using the settings

Easy fix: Look inside the drum below where the filter goes in. You will see two metal strips. They sense the wetness. Now get this: the dryer sheets rub against them and a thin wax buildup on them prevents the controls from properly determining wetness. The control has no clue the clothes are still damp and thinks everything is kosher; so it advances to the end. Solution. Clean the stuff off of the sensors so that they can sense the true wetness once again.

Whirlpool Dryer GEW9200L always at "Wet" step - skips "Sensing"


Hello. To test properly, the dryer must be put in diag mode--a key dance of pressing "more dry, less dry--more dry, less dry" within 5 seconds with the door closed and dryer off. All lights will be illuminated and "88" will be in the display. If you open the door and a tone is heard, along with seeing a software revision number in the display, this means that the moisture circuit is shorted. *If this does not happen*, then open the door and, using a wet cloth or finger, bridge the moisture sensor bars located on the filter holder(metal strips approx 1/2 apart and several inches long). If you do this and a tone is heard and the software revision number is seen, THE SENSOR PASSES THE TEST. If it doesn't, you're going to have to troubleshoot further with a voltage/ohm VOM meter, or better, call for service because, unless you've done this before and know what to expect, you are gonna be INVOLVED in disconnecting sensor wires and checking electrical resistances and so on. You'll have to remove the toe panel(bottom panel on front of unit) to access the sensor wires. To exit diag mode, simply unplug the dryer for about 30 seconds. One thing though, if there is a lot of lint build-up, the sensor bars could be shorted by a bunch of lint crammed between the contacts--have seen that one on occasion.

My kenmore elite he3 quit working model number DADT-ELE-2406024-EL54 do you know why?


The heating coil safety switch/fuse may have been activated if it got too hot in there. It is very common for escaped lint to finally build up where it should not be. The first thing is to learn how to remove the front of the machine and inspect for a build up of lint. Happens often over time.

My kenmore elite #110.73012181 electric dryer with autonsense feature no longer sensing, keeps on drying for hours after clothes dry when on less dry mode or normal dry mode


The drying circuit has to have a sensor to control heat and the timer controls time (on timed drying). Often sensors fail "open" and dryers stop drying. This sensor or the circuit seems to have failed closed (runs all the time). I suspect the sensor has failed in the drying control.

Whirlpool Dryer GEW9200LW1 skip digits when set to dry


Hello,

If the clothing comes out dry within a normal time,usually 40 minutes or less. Whats happening is the computer is recatulacting the time remaining to dry a load of clothes as it senses they may still not completly dry or even will drop off some time if clotes are dry before time computer calculated at start of cycle.

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.

My roper REX3514 Dryer will only dry on the time cycle.


If you use a lot of dryer sheets, it will build up an oily residue on the sensor strips causing a "false" reading. Light sandpaper and alchohol over the strips should clean them well. Another possibility, is if you have a mixed load, ie..towels, socks, jeans , if a sock or something light keeps hitting the strips, the dryer thinks the whole load is dry (it doesn't know there are different thing in there) Try keeping loads similar when using auto dry.

DRYER RACK DOES NOT DRY CLOTHES


try timed dry cycle instead of the auto-sensing setting. In your drum if you have auto dry such as less dry normal dry and more dry, There is a sensor sometimes in the drum and sometimes in the exhaust right after the blower. If in the drum then your clothes brush by this and if moisture is sensed then it keeps on drying. With your rack the clothes can't touch the sensor so it tells your dial to turn and that items are dry which in fact are not. Try this and see how it does.

More dry/less dry setting on atlantis dryer


The more dry less dry settings are basically how much heat you want to use. This is the sensor drying. There is a moister sensor in the dryer that senses the moister on the clothing. When it senses no more moister it will shut off and tell you your clothes are done. The trick with this is that you want to make sure you don't mix your heavy clothing with your light stuff. A t-shirt will dry much faster then jeans and it will sense that the shirt is dry and shut off. I put mine on about the second or third line on the more dry setting and my clothes come out fine. If you are mixing your clothing just put it around the third line. It all really depends on what is being dried. If it's heavy set it for more, if it's socks and such set it lower. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck.
