The first thing you need to check is your vent system. If your dryer vent is clogged with lint, the dryer has a hard time expelling the moisture.
Then, if the vent is clean, try using a timed drying cycle instead of a sensor cycle. If your clothes get dry using the timed cycle, then you might have a sensor problem.
Also, make sure your wash machine is properly spinning out the clothes. I saw that once before where the customer thought the problem was with the dryer, but it ended up being their wash machine's ATC switch adding water at the end of the spin cycle.
BELOW ARE STEP BY STEP GUILD LINE ON HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEM OF THE WASHER
Nothing is more annoying when washing your clothes then finishing loading your clothes, only to find the machine is not turning on. There are a few different culprits behind this problem, most of which do not require you to purchase any new items to fix the situation.
1 Inspect the cable running from the washing machine to the electrical outlet to make sure it is connected to the washing machine properly. If the cable is cut or damaged, you need to replace it before performing your next wash load.
2 Find the fuse in the circuit breaker and make sure it is still active. You may have blown a fuse at one point using the washing machine, causing it to not run or turn on. Reset the circuit breaker by identifying the washing machine's circuit (it is written next to the breaker itself) and push the flip switch back in the opposite direction.
3 If you need to change a blown fuse, pull the current fuse out of the circuit breaker. The metal filament inside will be either black or burned through. Find a replacement fuse of the same voltage (the number is printed on the front of the fuse and found at any home improvement store), then insert the fuse back into the fuse's location inside the fuse box.
4 Remove any clothing that is blocking the washing machine door from closing completely, such as sleeves or pant legs tucked in by the joints of the front swinging door.
5 Contact your local repair company if the washing machine is still not working correctly. There may be an internal problem with the machine you cannot see.
You have a problem with the exhaust vent in the house walls. Try this. Disconnect the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer and see how well it dries a load of laundry. If it comes out alright, then you know that the vent in the house is clogged and will need to be professionally cleaned out. Good luck
You may have to do this 2 times and you will never find this in any manual. Use 1/4 cup "Powdered" Dishwashing soap and 1 cup of bleach in an empty tub cycle. Run a load of older dark clothes or non flammable rags FIRST after doing this the first time. If they come out with streaks run the cycle of 1/4 cup Powdered dishwashing soap and 1 cup bleach again. Same routine after 2nd cleaning cycle... dark clothes check for anything out of the ordinary. You should not have to do it a 3rd time unless your machine is really gunked up. Hopefully your using HE type soaps in your front loader. Non HE laundry soaps will cause the smelly machine also.
