If there is a dryness sensor, it will be just inside the door, on the bottom right. You can clean the sensor by rubbing the metal bars with a scrubbing pad. This will remove any wax buildup from fabric softeners.
Possible reasons your clothes may still come out wet:
1. The dryer isn't tumbling the clothes.
2. The dryer isn't heating.
3. The airflow is restricted.

From your description, the third seems most likely. If your machine is the one pictured above, inside the dryer door is a plastic grate over the lint screen. Remove the lint screen. Remove the two screws on this grate (Phillips.) Use a vacuum cleaner with a crevice tool to get out as much lint as possible. Be careful to not shove any lint or debris further down into the blower wheel.
Lint can also clog up in the vent pipe. This pipe should be cleaned or replaced anually. Also, check the exhaust vent on the side of the house.

May tag Neptune dryer forming moisture inside tub


Moister in the dryer:

This means that the moist air is not escaping correctly and that is why it is taking so long to dry your clothes - if they dry at all.
a good start at cleaning out lint blocked areas, I suggest go to the back of the dryer and take off the vent pipe or hose and check things out with a flashlight. Clean out all the lint and dust you can, even use a vacuum cleaner on it. Make sure the vent pipe is completely clear of any obstructions.Non-rigid ventshas much worse air flow than smooth piping, so you might want to upgrade tosmooth piping.
Once you have all the lint and dust cleaned out of the dryer, go to where the dryer vents outside. Again, clean the area thoroughly. There is usually a trap door that opens when the dryer air is on and closes when it is not operating. It should be completely clear of lint and opening smoothly.
Also, look into the exhaust area on the dryer carefully to see if there is a hole or gap in the dryer's internal air ducting. Without the vent pipe connected and with no clothes in the dryer, start it and let if run for a few seconds and make sure there is strong air flow from the exhaust port. You should feel it strongly on your hand.
Re-connect the vent pipe and start the dryer again. Feel all around the bottom to see if any air is blowing out from under the bottom. This would indicate there is a break or gap in the dryer's internal ducting. If you do feel air, you will need to call a service technician to see if it can be repaired. If your dryer is very old, there could be a rust hole in the duct.
In conclusion Cause ·Poor venting is a common reason why water might leak into a clothes dryer. Since the dryer works to expel moisture, it is important that the dryer's vents are properly installed so that the humidity can escape.
Effect ·If the humidity in the dryer is trapped, it will eventually turn to water. This will lead to poor drying results or longer drying times, depending on the amount of leakage.
Prevention/Solution ·Faulty dryer venting can be prevented by making sure that the humidity is directed outdoors. Also, vents should be cleaned of lint and other debris before each load so that water can readily escape. Taking these precautions can ensure that the moisture will meet dry, open air.

Dryer is set to run 40 mins when it shouts off at 0 on the dryer is has only run 20 mins according to my stove timer


Dryer has a moisture sensor that detects the clothes are dry so it shuts off earlier. If the clothes are still damp then the dryer vent may be plugged and causing the unit to run hot or not able to fully evacuate the air from the machine. Clean the vent and make sure it's completely free and try again. If it short cycles again and clothes still damp you may have a sensor controller issue.

My FEQ1442ES dries but after about five minutes the dryness button flashes 4 times then 30 sec flashes 4 times it does this 4 times before shutting down then the start/ cancel buttons flash 6 times th


Sounds like it is flashing a code but you would need a professional to diagnose it completely. If it shuts off after drying it could be reaching too high of a temp or the thermal limiter is not registering the temp correctly.

Won't dry


That lint may be covering the humidity sensor, which is why it may not fully dry when relying upon the sensor. If it gets up to temperature and will dry on timer, the sensor is just covered from lint based on the description.

If there are no panels with removable sections, the only way in to that area where the lint is accumulating is from above.

If you have acceses to an air compressor with the capability of 100 PSI, or enough to operate pheumatic tools, use an air blower nozzle and through the perforations in the dryer drum blow loose any lint you see and periodically during the process set the dryer to "air fluff" and purge the lint out of the unit as best you can. Make sure the duct leading to outside is clear and that it is not simply the plastic with a coiled wire flexible exhaust either. It can catch lint, as can the rigid metal sections with screws. The ducts should be cleared every few months or so to prevent build up as that can lead to a fire.

Once the compressed air has been used to clear out what is visible, purge the lint with the "air fluf" no heat setting first for a number of minutes, then switch over to a low heat setting with no clothes in dryer when you are sure there is no more to purge out the vent or into the lint trap- let it run for a few minutes and smell for smoke or indication the lint did not purge. You should be able to turn the dryer on by pressing the door switch when pressing the "Run" button and observe for areas of concern, and listen for whistling or indications of air restrictions in the ducting. Also make sure the small flap door on the exhaust closes fully as well as opens easily.

My whirlpoor dryer is not drying the clothes. i have to dry it 3 or times to get it dried out. please tell me solution for that problem.thank you.


First check for lint build up. You need to check the lint filter, inside the dryer, inside the dryer vent duct and the vent itself. Make sure that the flapper is able to move freely and not clogging the vent itself. Check that the tubing is not kinked if you have flexible ducting connecting the dryer to the vent.

Next what is the temperature of the room that the dryer is in? Most dryers work best when above 50 degrees F.

Next thing: clean the two metal bars if your dryer has a humidity sensor to determine clothing dryness. The fabric softener sheets can cause a residue on these sensors that block the reading.

Next: is the dryer getting warm/hot to the touch during the cycle? If not, then the thermostat or the dryer heating element may have failed. (Is this a gas or electric dryer?) Please provide a model number for your dryer if you need a parts list and other troubleshooting assistance.

I hope this helps.

(blocked vents are the most common source of dryer malfunctions, in my experience. It's also the simplest issue to check even though checking the entire path means moving the dryer.)

Two problems: No regulation of heating. No matter the temp setting, the outcome is always hot. Dryness sensor will not work. Are these repairs that I can do, or should a repairman be called?


you can do it but before we start disconect the dryer duct and run it to see if the duct is cluge and full with lint make sure the air comming out from the house is in the same presure that it come out directly from the dryer.
in the unit there it thermo fuse and it is on the air vent duct that come out from the vent. what model you got i give you the part # and the location.

Dryers - My Timer is not Advancing


You must have a dryness sensor similar to this9a2ef08.jpg Wet clothes rub the sensor and this chff9524f.jpganges the resistance of the sensor. The dryness board sends power to the motor to move the timer towards the end when no more dampness is detected. 2 things you can do before buying any parts is clean the sensor and yank out the little board next to the timer,clean the contacts and get rid of the corrosion. If you do not have a control board then you need to replace the heating element control klixonc21ad26.jpg

SLOW TO DRY


HI, i recommend making sure that this dryer has a clear exhaust duct and hose. place your hand on the outside exhaust hose and check for a good flow. if the flow is low, you will have some sort of clog in the exhaust system and you will need to clear this blockage. if the exhaust duct and hose is clear of debris, you will the need to check the lint screen for debris as well. make sure you Clean this regularly after every cycle.

I also recommend checking the dryness sensor as well.

Maytag atlantis will not turn off


This is not the solution to your exact problem but for those looking for why there timer will not advance and why it keeps running: The usual problem is not the timer but the mosture sensor.

1: Check the mosture sensor light/indicator. If is still shows some mosture or flashes even when the items are dry, you have a mosture sensor problem, probably not a timer issue - luck you.

2: Check if the timer will advance and the dryer will turn off when you have it in the TIMED mode (i.e. 10mins - NOT the more/less dry modes.) If so, then it is indeed a sensor problem.

2: Check that the wires to the mosture sensor have not fallen off (as in my case - a simple repair). The senor is usually two metal bars somewhere near the front part of the inside of your dryer. You may have to take off the door and the front pannel (be sure to unplug the dryer first) to get at the two wires to clip on to the sensor. Clean any lint and make sure they are conneted. If well connected then replace the sensor ($15-$20 and very easy to do).
