As long as the dryer doesn't have electronic controls, this very common symptom indicates a bad(open) heating element.

    Replace it, unfortunately the days of the $15 replacement heating elements are long gone.

    It's also possible that the temperature sensors are open too, however a bad heating element is more common. Usually the heating element will be physically broken. Another thing that you can try is to go to your main circuit breaker panel and turn the breaker for the dryer off then back on. Basically you want to make sure that the dryer is getting approximately 240 volts.

Permanent press cycle keeps shutting down and doesn't finish.


Hello. I don't know what make/model dryer you have but the problem could be with load size and type of clothing. The sensor bars are usually located on the front of the lint screen housing(you have to put your head in the dryer and look back to see them--they are 2 metal strips, approx 1/2" apart and at least several inches long). The damp/wet clothing keeps shorting across the strips, telling the main board to keep the dryer running. If there isn't enough of a load, the dryer may think that the clothes are dry prematurely and count down too quickly. The sensor bar technology *is not* an exact science--it works best on large loads with like clothing. For smaller loads, use time dry and adjust the temp setting accordingly. I hope I helped you.

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.

My frigidaire dryer will not dry properly( still damp) in automatic mode


Depending on how damp they are, it could be normal or you could have a plugged dryer vent. I say that because on these dryers, the software in the control is programed to leave cloths a little damp in the sensor dry. This is for energy efficiency and less shrinking on clothing. If they are coming out to damp and you need to run them through two cycles to dry them, then the vent is plugged, either in the dryer or the house, and needs cleaned out. When the vent is plugged, the moisture isn't getting out, and the cloths will not dry.

Intelli sensor doesn't read that clothes are wet,just damp.does not get clothes dry in intelli cycle.does get them dry in timed cycle.already replaced sensor.


do you stack clothes on top? If so take them off and try another load and never ever put anything on top. It insulates it and makes the dryer not run right. Good Luck

Maytag Bravos Dryer (1 mo. old) timer does not change from start


Maytag Bravos 400 Series Dryer purchased August 2009 - November 2009 required repair as I also experience the timer readjusting itself to excessive extended drying time when clothing was bone dry and hot. Sometimes extended to 1 hour 40 minutes! Serviceman stated problem was the Sensors in the dryer. Part number 8577274 Thermister and "Old Ohmed out open" whatever that means as listed on my repair ticket. Have not had that particular problem since. Make sure your dryer vents from dryer to outside are clean and clear of lint. Will help immensely. I have many other issues with this dryer it has been down FOUR times in 9 months. Fighting with Maytag to replace this lemon!
