Question about Maytag Atlantis MDG7400AW Gas Dryer
Sometimes the dryer doesn't want to start with a load of wet clothes. I tried putting the wet clothes directly over the moisture sensor (black piece with 2 metal strips inside the dryer) and most of the times that does the trick. The clothes sometimes are still a little moist after the dryer stops and it is near impossible to get it to start again unless I put the moist clothing directly over the metal bars.
I suspect that there might be softener build up over the years on the 2 metal strips on the sensor. I've seen this part for sale in a few online parts store for $7 or so, but the shipping will make it about $14. I will check out the local parts store and replace it. I heard that you probably could wipe the 2 metal strips down with alcohol or Windex to remove the build up. I'll try replacing it. It's cheap enough and I can probably do it myself.
All you need to do is take some real fine sand paper and sand it down litely
