Automatic sensor drying

Please settle argument. My LG dryer has setting marked "sensor", Does that mean the dryer will shut off automatically when clothing is dry?

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. As with most things each manufacturer seems to have their own terminology or "exclusive features" for their products. To answer your question, in a word...Yes. As a general rule "sensor" does indicate an "auto dry" cycle when properly maintained ( as long as the sensors aren't contaminated by way of "wax" build-up over the surface...clean regularly with a rag moistened by "white vinegar" if you us fabric softner or dryer sheets etc. ) and vented that will shut the dryer "off" automatically when sensing the items are dry...depending on the options and cycles selected of course. Hope this answers your question and thanks for visiting FixYa today. Please take a moment and rate the answer if satisfied or let me know if you require further assistance. macmarkus :)

DRYER WILL NOT SHUT OFF ON AUTOMATIC SETTING


Most of the time when a dryer won't shut of in automatic, it is because the sensors inside the drum are bad and cannot sense when the clothes are dry. If your dryer works good on a timed dry then is probably the moisture sensors.

AUTOMATIC HEAT SETTINGS NOT WORKING PROPERLY


lg's have a dry sensor that senses the wetness of the load they are not that reliable.. and will shut down the machine does it work on manual timer? meaning set it on high for 30 minutes.. it will probably run the 30 minutes... I have had this issue with my lg and so I just use the manual settings cheaper than having a 300$ service call. Its a problem with the dry sensor on the lining of the drum...

Dryer continues to run past the preset time.


If you are not running the load on "Time Dry", the machine will automatically use the sensor dry settings. Meaning that it automatically adjusts dry time with the dampness of the load. If you look near the time window you will notice that it says "est. time remaining". If you would like to have the unit run for just 20 minutes use the time dry button you will notice the dryness level light will turn off. The means your unit does not care how wet or dry the clothes are it will just run for 20 minutes. Hope this helped explain things.

Clean the sensors ... they are likely coated with something. Alternatively, the sensors could have become disconnected during the move. Remove the back and check this out. Use a 5/16 nut driver - not a screw driver - youwill save yourself a bunckof grief.

It will not automatically turn off when running, the knob does not turn while running.


Miss Stephanie you must replace the timer.
If you have a timed dry setting. Run timed dry. If it does not shut off timer is bad.
If it does shut off you have a sensor problem.

On sensor dry, dryer remains at 1 minute for hours...will not shut off automatically


I'm sorry to hear of your problem with your LG dryer. I have one as well and it works very well. I found my owners manual. It has a web site WWW.LGSERVICE.com. They also have a toll free number 1-877-714-7486. Perhaps either of these will help you find an answer. Good Luck
