Hello, this is because you have a bad moisture sensor and it should be replaced. The moisture sensor can normally be locaed at the rear of the drum and can be accessed by removing the front panel of the dryer. If you have any other comments please feel free to post them. Good Luck! Mike

I have Samsung gas dryer model DV410. no heat, replaced two thermal fuse and hi low limit. Now it only works with timed cycle mode. the rest mode, it runs only for least the 5 minutes and shut off.


timed cycle mean dryer not on sensor dry mode. check wire connection on moisture sensor bars (i think you forget to put 2 wire connector put together). when you use other cycle dryer use moisture sensor to dry cloths so sensor not working dryer will stop in 5 minutes or so because dryer think there are no wet cloths to dry. hope this help you.

I wonder if maybe your wire is attached to the sensors? If it vibrated off the connection that could be the problem. Here is a video I made which shows how to connect the wire:

My dryer does not completely dry the clothes when we use the dryness sensing option. It does fine when we use the timer. Is there a moisture sensor that I might be able to replace ?


Dryers with electronic control and auto dry cycle indeed use moisture sensors for the auto drying to work. The problem is absolutely associated with the failure of the moisture sensors, especially when the timed dry cycle works fine. Either the connection of the sensors to the electronic control is loose or the sensors are covered with thin film that prevents it to sense the proper moisture content of the clothes.

Clean the moisture sensor bars thoroughly and make sure its connections are snug fit. Reseat the connections several times to clean off dirt and corrosion build up in the connectors and terminals. The last thing to look into is the electronic control if all resort fail to address the issue, that is, clean sensor bars and good terminal connections.

Indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further or more specific troubleshooting and repair advice.

Dryer will not turn off


If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)

  • The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

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.

Machine drys fine on timed cycles but shuts off before clothes are dry on automatic cycle.


First try cleaning the moisture sensors with rubbing alcohol, these are two silver colored strips located inside the drier just below the lint cleanout

mamch,
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!
