Question about Kenmore 67082 Electric Dryer
Our dryer turns off frequently before the clothes were dry. Initiatilly it would happen in the automatic mode that is supposed to sense when the clothes are dry and now it happens in the time mode as well.
Any advice on what the issue is or how to fix it?
it sounds like a clog in vent.if yours vents up thru roof you may need to have a chimney sweep come out and sweep vent.check and make sure the vent hose is net kinked or full of lint.

no. what you are getting is an over heat sense and is shutting the unit down this is a safety type of thermostat and will shut down the heating cycle prematurely as it will with a clogged vent or lint filter

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

find the metal sensors in the drum

Easy fix: Look inside the drum below where the filter goes in. You will see two metal strips. They sense the wetness. Now get this: the dryer sheets rub against them and a thin wax buildup on them prevents the controls from properly determining wetness. The control has no clue the clothes are still damp and thinks everything is kosher; so it advances to the end. Solution. Clean the stuff off of the sensors so that they can sense the true wetness once again.
