The "moisture sensors " are located just to the right side below the lint filter housing. pop your hea inside and youll see 2 metal strips. thats them. with a scotchbrite pad, you can clean them off, usualy become fouled by dryer sheet residue. twice as long to dry couldalso be an indicator of a vent thats not completly free, kinked or becoming clogged .

Turn on power, the lights come on but when you press start nothing happens just a click sound.


Click sound at power button and start button should get it going. If not then Dryer drum is not turning.

Dryer is taking too long to dry clothes, even on AccuDry setting for Jeans/towels - it still is heating, just not heating enought to dry clothes, I have been doing two cycles at least for a very small...


Your house vent is restricted causing the long time to dry complaint.
Please clean the entire vent to the outside.
Also make sure the vent behind the dryer does not get smashed when the dryer is pushed back to the wall.

Sensor dry timer problem


Clean off the moisture sensor bars. They are the silver curved strips about 4 inches long inside the drum near the lint fitler. If you use fabric softner sheets, a waxy build up will coat the bars. The dyer can no longer sense the damp clothes, so it goes into the cool down and then shuts off. Time dry bypasses the moisture sensor.

Kenmore dryer only heats on delicate


I am not familiar with this particular dryer but most of the Kenmore family use different thermostats for different temperature. They are usually located in the rear and are clustered on the blower housing. Take the two wires off one thermostat at a time and test. It should be closed when cold if not replace it (Usually around $15 each) You probably have a very dangerous clogged exhaust. This will cause thermostats to fail. and can cause a fire. CLEAN It out and dont use flexible plastic duct pipe. The other cause of thermostat failure is if the washer doesn't spin properly and the clothes are too wet when dried. A properly operating dryer will not take much longer than 45 minutes max to dry a load.
