Question about Whirlpool LAB2700ML Pedestal Drawer for Duet Washers & Dryers
My 4 yr old Whirlpool Duet frontload electric dryer is not completely drying the loads. I read on consumer reports website that the sensors may need to be cleaned, because of fabric softener buildup on the sensor itself. How do I clean these sensors and also where are they located?
The sensors are two metal strips inside the drum. They are on the right side just behind the filter. They are silver colored and have a slight curve to them. You cannot see them unless you put your head inside the drum. I clean my sensors with a non metal pot cleaner like 3M Scotch Brite. These sensors also fail if you dry silicon backed carpets.

I have found that my Duet dryer is sensitive to lint buildup. I bought two brushes, a long thin one to clean the area that the lint filter fits in, and a round one that is the diameter of the dryer exhaust pipe. I have found surprising amounts of lint on the louvered exhaust vent cap that is on the side of the house.
I have been doing the cleaning at about 3 month intervals, and no more problems.
