1 start with claening the sensor strips located just inside the unit itself under the lint filter. pop yourheadinside dryer drum andyoull see 2 metal strips. witha scotchbrite pad, give it ascouruing, to remove any build up form fabric softener / dryer sheets
2 check for good, not kinked or clogged venting
3 replace the thermsitor about 30 bucks.

When put in sensor dry setting, dryer shuts off in a few minutes before clothes are dry


I'd suggest the dryer "sensor thinks" the clothes are dry, or uses a diffenernt standard, or it's bad. I'd revert to the tried and true method of "time".

Maytag dryer se1000 runs for 15 minutes then shuts off


Clean your sensors if you have them. They might have junk on them that could be forming a moisture barrier preventing the sensors from feeling the wetness of them clothes. The dryer may think them clothes is dry because it cannot sense wetness.

Gas dyer not staying on, all the light are flashing


Does your model have sensor strips inside? Wash them with windex to remove any moisture barrier on them. They sense wetness and if they don't feel any wetness they make the control think them clothes is dry and it shuts down the dryer thinkin them clothes is dry.

My dryer will run for a couple of minutes then shut off we already replaced the heating element


If your dryer has electronic sensors like this:
themobilian_2661.jpg
They might have a coating builtup on them preventing them from feeling the wet clothes.As the wet clothes tumble in the dryer they rub up against these sensor strips. As long a wetness is there the capacitor is dicharged on the controls upstairs and it continues to dry them wet clothes. If junk gets on them sensors no wetness will e felt by them sensors. It is a simple as that. The dryer thinks the clothes is dry because no dampness is being detected so is shuts down thinking all is propah. Get some windex and scrub them sensors good so dampness can be sensed by the two sensors once more and party on!

My dryer is not drying my clothes completely. I have to set it to time dry for at least 120 minutes to get a load of clothes to dry. I can feel that the dry is warm .I usually dry my clothes on optimum dry...


Your dryer has a double set of heating elements
themobilian_2122.jpg
1 side of the coils is probably broken and you are getting half the heat.
This is making the dryer take longer to dry them clothes.

themobilian_2124.jpg
Air restrictions in the dryer and vent can cause the heater control to shut down quickly also.
If you have a bad breaker the power will sometimes work and sometimes not.

If all of these are good you might have a problem with the timer.

Most of the GE timers have leaf switches in the that get a burr on the contacts. The come apart simple enough.

Dryer is not heating up to dry clothes


The spark ignitor maybe at fault. Listen for the clicking noise upon starting it up the first 30 seconds it runs. If not heard it is in need of a replacement

DRYER RACK DOES NOT DRY CLOTHES


try timed dry cycle instead of the auto-sensing setting. In your drum if you have auto dry such as less dry normal dry and more dry, There is a sensor sometimes in the drum and sometimes in the exhaust right after the blower. If in the drum then your clothes brush by this and if moisture is sensed then it keeps on drying. With your rack the clothes can't touch the sensor so it tells your dial to turn and that items are dry which in fact are not. Try this and see how it does.

Dryer starts drying and thinks clothes are dry, but they aren't


Check the timer, and the sensor. Sounds like it is having a problem with the timer or sensor no noticing that the clothes are still wet. Please rate if satisfied. Thank you
