The dryer does not pass 6 min mark and does not shut off. How would I test a humidity sensor? Thank you for help.

A dryer moisture sensor can stop working without notice, until you notice your clothes being over dried or still wet at the end of the cycle. It is a good practice to test the dryer moisture sensor periodically. There are two types of moisture-detecting sensors for dryers. Once you understand how they work you will see how to test each one.
1. Sensor BarThese sensors contain digits that protrude outwardly. They work on an electrical current and the moisture from the clothing.
The first step to test is to place completely dry clothes in the dryer and turn on the dryer; it should run for a few moments and then shut down right away.
Secondly, place damp clothes into the dryer, turn on the dryer and watch the timer. As the clothes begin to dry the timer will move and shut off.
2. ThermostatThe timer is regulated by the thermostat. The thermostat rests in a closed position. To test this type of moisture sensor, place damp clothes in the dryer. Watch the timer; as the clothes begin to dry, the thermostat should open and the timer will move forward ,eventually shutting off.

I have a fridgedaire dryer, front loader. It gets wet inside on the door down through the lint filter, under the drum and out the exhaust. Think the problem is with the vent but can't figure out why. ...

2 questions are there more then 3 elbows in your vent run

and is any of it flexible pipe?

Humidity will infiltrate but should be infiltrating that much. One thing they make for dryer vents is a flap that opens one way to let air out, while dryer is running and closes when dryer is off. I don't think its humidity causing your issue. When you say the vent is straight does it run horizontal (even with the floor) or does elbow down and then run straight/horizontal?

Also about how long is the pipe run?

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Kenmore Elite Electric Dryer, Model # 110.8586400, Control Panel Lights inoperative, But Drum Light works fine. I am going to try this procedure, Will let you know if it works. Jay/ Jacksonville Florida...

I followed that procedure, Taking the Electronic Control Unit out of the dryer, Blow Drying the printed circuit Board (PCB) Board out and reseating P3 and P4, Worked fine.. No moisture was found in the Drum area. I forgot to tag the TECH SHEET FOR this particular dryer . But punch in Tech sheet , Part # 8546206 into google, this gives Schematic and valuable Troubleshooting steps, The only thing i could not find was the pin to pin test on chekcing the individual switches on the main functions, Suppose to be 14 pins I only found 13. But in all drying the PCB board and reseating the plugs worked for me. Again the symptons were no Light indication on ANY button depressed but the drum light was on. Great Site, Not a first time user

Dryer runs for awhile, then shuts down.

I can think of two possibilities, the first one you should do regardless.

1. If the vent is blocked, the dryer will overheat and there are temperature sensors in the dryer that will shut it off. Make sure that the vent is clear all the way to the outside. If it has a plastic hose at the dryer, throw it away and replace with a metal one. Make sure that the vent hood on the outside is clean and the flap is opening freely.

2. The black shavings could be from the drive belt or the bearings on the drum. If either are bad, it could cause the motor to overheat, which would then shut off.

Wet floor at base of dryer

check the door gasket for damage.. do you notice any moisture or residue on the front of the dryer ?
does the spotting on the floor appear to be coming from underneath the dryer and flowing out toward the front where you stand? My point being is that moisture coming from the front of the dryer or from a leaky seal inside it ? Once we have some idea what path that water is coming from, we should be able to identify the source and fix it...
Please post your reply to my questions..

Front Panel lights not working? Dryer inside light does work? I fixed this twice already on my dryer. Please read this whole explanation I live in New Orleans where the humidity is very high. I have a laundry room where my Washer and Dryer reside. Kenmore HE4T. I noticed that when I shut the laundry room door, my central A/C pulls hot air from outside the house via the dryer exhaust duct. This causes moisture to build on the inside of the dryer and especially the front control panel. Did you ever see moisture on your dryer?s door even when there were no clothes in it? The moisture collects on the Silicon board that controls the dyers function and basically causes a short. This is what I do to fix it. You will need a ¼ nut driver or socket. 1. Confirm that you have power to the dryer <- is the inside dryer light on when you open the door. YES- keep reading.. NO ? find the circuit breaker and reset it. 2. UNPUG THE DRYER! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! 3. Find the 3 screws in the back of the dryer that hold the dryer lid on. Unscrew them and slid the lid back and lift off. Is there moisture on the inside of the lid? 4. Find the 2 screws that hold down the front control panel. They should be silver and will be on top. Do not remove the inside gold screws. 5. Find the 3 screws that hold down the power control panel on the top left side of the dryer. Probably has a high voltage warning sticker on it. 6. Lift the power control panel (sheet metal) part and move it to the right so it lays on the dyers drum. There are some wires attached to it and unless you are a very handy person, I wouldn?t remove them. 7. Lift the front control panel straight up until it comes out of the dryer. There should be some wires that attach this piece to the power control panel. If you are handy, you can remove these 2 clip-on wires from the power control panel by squeezing the black connector locking clip and releasing it from the panel. 8. If you flip the control panel around you may notice moisture on the green silicon chips. Get a hairdryer and take your time to dry them. 9. Dry all components of the dryer with a hairdryer. 10. Put everything back together except for the lid and all the screws. Remember that the front control panel slides down first and then the power control panel sits on top second. Plug the dryer in and see if you get lights, but don?t start the dryer. Unplug the dryer and replace all the screws and the lid. The problem is that once the dryer gets wet from the moisture, it never dries enough for it to start working again. This is a bad design from Sears/Whirlpool. I learn my lesson that just because its more expensive doesn?t make it more better. I now keep my dryer and washer door open all the time even when there are no clothes in it. This lets the moisture escape into the house rather than collect in the dryer. I hope this helps at least one person. Thanks Jason Kennedy from New Orleans
