Question about Dryers
The Manual Time Cycle on the gas dryer works fine. The preset cycles such as Towels, Normal, Sanitize, turn off within 5 minutes. I think the sensor might not be working. How do I figure out what the problem is and how to fix it? It isn't the lint trap. I clean that every time.

Andeb, 90% of the time long dry times are caused by blocked vents. If you are sure that this is not the case there are a couple of things to check. First check the sensor; press the more time button and less time button 4 times until 88 shows in the display.(more time,less time, more time, less time). Open the door and you will hear a beep and a see a code. On the inside just below the vent screen is the moisture sensor. Moisten your finger and lay it across the sensor strips covering both. If you hear a beep, the sensor is good. Sometimes they build up with fabric softner and need to be sanded lightly. Another issue might be the burner coils. Remove the bottom panel and check to see that the burner is igniting and remaining lit. Sometimes these coils become week and will not sustain the flame. I will attach a diagram, look at number 13 and 14 on the picture. These are the coils. Catriver..post back.

See that white skinny component by the blower? That is the thermal fuse
Below it is the control T-stat. Now when that filter housing is clogged
The temps rise considerably faster. This control turns the heating element on and off during the drying session. So if you have this:
The autodry feature is not gonna work so good. Why?
See that orange wire attached to the high limit thermostat?
That feeds power to the timer motor if the heater element is not on.
Bad control thermostat AND/OR air restrictions are the Autodry type dryer's worst enemy.
Try first cleaning the dryer and see if that makes a difference.
If it still has problems then change out the control thermostat.
