Question about Dryers
I have had this dryer now for about 16 months. Clothes do not get dry if I use the sensor dry settings. Even the More Dry setting will still leave the clothes wet. It will dry the clothes if I do a time dry. I have checked the vent hoses, and the all appear fine, including the outside vent. I am thinking that it must be the sensor dry. I was hoping that you could tell me how to check the sensor and see if it is defective.
Ok, Jeff, I see you have a front loader, electric. On this model we have inlet thermistors, outlet thermistors, and the sensor bars are non serviceable, which means they are part of the blower housing. Not a big deal. Let's put it into a test mode and test the voltage drop of the sensors. They are on the inside of the drum just below the vent gate. 2 bars. Unplug the dryer for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and within 10 seconds press in this order: signal button, delay start, signal button again and delay start again. The consol should show t01. This is test 1. You want to turn the main dial clockwise until the test shows t09, this will be the sensor test. With the drum dry it should show around 5 volts DC. Now take a wet rag and place it over the bars, the display should show a voltage drop to around .5 or 1volt DC. If it does this the sensor is working properly. See if you can run this test successfully and post back. Catriver.
