Question about Dryers
Dryer's heating element works fine. Dryer has an ''automatic Dryer'' selection that is suppose to turn the dryer off when the clothes are dry. This has worked for several years and now the dryer just runs forever, clothes still dry but does not shut off
Dryer is a Whirlpool LGR7620LWO
There is a humidity sensor which acts as an auto cutoff switch in most driers, as your load auto dries , it senses the change in humidty and kicks the power off. It is often shaped like a flying saucer with wire terminals on the wings. That is likely your culprit, generally located close to the element. Based on your description, I would start there. Also test a load on timed dry, but it sounds like that's your problem. Remember to unplug before looking under the hood. Post back if you need further info
