you have a clogged wall vent or clogged dryer vent or a clogged lint trap,you are trapping all the hot wet air in the dryer and that's why it's taking so lont to dry-mike

SOURCE: Dryer turns on and rotates. However, does not dry

This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.

Beko sensordry 6kg gets hot on sensordry programs but won,t get hot on timed programs and keeps stopping and starting, any ideas please?


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

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.

The dryer does not pass 6 min mark and does not shut off. How would I test a humidity sensor? Thank you for help.


A dryer moisture sensor can stop working without notice, until you notice your clothes being over dried or still wet at the end of the cycle. It is a good practice to test the dryer moisture sensor periodically. There are two types of moisture-detecting sensors for dryers. Once you understand how they work you will see how to test each one.
1. Sensor BarThese sensors contain digits that protrude outwardly. They work on an electrical current and the moisture from the clothing.
The first step to test is to place completely dry clothes in the dryer and turn on the dryer; it should run for a few moments and then shut down right away.
Secondly, place damp clothes into the dryer, turn on the dryer and watch the timer. As the clothes begin to dry the timer will move and shut off.
2. ThermostatThe timer is regulated by the thermostat. The thermostat rests in a closed position. To test this type of moisture sensor, place damp clothes in the dryer. Watch the timer; as the clothes begin to dry, the thermostat should open and the timer will move forward ,eventually shutting off.

GE dryer dcvh680ej0ms runs 3 minutes and shuts off and resets time


On esimple thing to try is clean the dryer moisture sensing bars inside the dryer. Wet clothes rub against these bars and tell the control the clothes is still damp. IF no moisture is detected then she shuts down. So what goes wrong? Dryer sheets have a waxy buildup on them which tends to coat the bars. Moisture cannot penetrate the barrier and therefore the control thinks all is kosher and shuts down. Energy saver feature don't ya know. LOL Rocket scientists no longer have a space shuttle program so they engineering dryers now. LOL
Houston we have a problem.

Your moisture sensing bars may have junk on them. The way your machine detects drynesss ir with we clothes.
As them wet clothes rub them bars they short out the board and that way it knows them clothes need a bit more time.
If thm bars get a bit of softener oem and glaze over the bars then wetness won;t be detected no more and the control won't know them thangs is wet or dry and most likely declare a No Joy.

sounds like an air flow problem meaning the dryer is not exhausting the hot air. Best way to check is to disconnect exhaust tubing from dryer and run a cycle. If the clothes dry normally the vent to the outside is plugged. Hope this helps

Machine drys fine on timed cycles but shuts off before clothes are dry on automatic cycle.


First try cleaning the moisture sensors with rubbing alcohol, these are two silver colored strips located inside the drier just below the lint cleanout
