Question about Washing Machines
HI. The technician was correct in your case. The sensor and timer work together to insure proper drying time. The timer will continue to run the unit if it receives a resistance signal from the sensor(dryness) that indicates the contents are not dry. If the sensor is covered with lint, it will unbalance the signal, in return, causing the timer to initiate a overrun.
Now, with that being said, you have stated that the sensor was not covered with lint, and the duct was clear. This will confirm that the dryness sensor is damaged, and should be replaced.
I have tried to look up the part numbers to no avail. the actual model number you have posted above, seems to be incomplete. Please try to located the complete model number and post it asap. This will help with the parts search.
