Question about Frigidaire Dryers
When I use the auto dry setting on my frigidaire gas dryer, it is no longer sensing that the clothes are dry. It is stopping the cycle when the clothes are still damp. I had this issue with our dryer at our previous home, and I was able to clean the sensors on the inside of the dryer and all was fine again. The man who had come to install the dryer at that home warned us that if we used fabric softener that we could expect this to happen so we should clean the sensors regularly. Unfortunately, cleaning the sensors does not seem to be working this time. Does anyone have a good solution for how to address this problem? Perhaps there is a more thorough way to clean the sensors that I'm not aware of that someone could share? Are there other sensors in the dryer in addition to the two near the lint trap that I'm maybe not seeing? I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

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.

I went over the part list and I didnt see a sensor, if it is there it will be two silver wire bars either on the back bulk head or at front right just below the door, possibly your timer has gone south too.
The only item I saw was a dryer cycling thermostat that shuts off heat when a certain temp is reached, here is a link;

You said,We have a Frigidaire Gallery dryer with a moisture sensor. I've had this model in the past with no concerns, but our current model doesn't seem to work as well. When set to an "automatic" cycle (where the moisture sensor is used) the clothes don't always come out dry and it has to be turned on again. Would there be any reason for this?
What's the model # and the age?
There are two types of moisture sensors.
One has to strips of metal on a black disk looking thing on the dryer rear wall and the other works on steam rather than contact!
Could be you had the better on before that was the contact one rather than the steamm sensor!
How long to dry a load of clothes ?
