Kenmore Dryer Moisture Sensor

We dried sneakers in our Kenmore Model# 11068622700 and it broke the moisture sensor off the back of the dryer. One of the metal ends sticking out the pack of the part is bent. Can I just purchase a new part and stick it back in? I believe the new part number is Part# 279366

Thanks.

If you can get it to go back in sure why not,its simply a metal strip plugged in to a wire measuring resistance, so if its not physically broken you should be able to pop it back into place

I have Samsung gas dryer model DV410. no heat, replaced two thermal fuse and hi low limit. Now it only works with timed cycle mode. the rest mode, it runs only for least the 5 minutes and shut off.


timed cycle mean dryer not on sensor dry mode. check wire connection on moisture sensor bars (i think you forget to put 2 wire connector put together). when you use other cycle dryer use moisture sensor to dry cloths so sensor not working dryer will stop in 5 minutes or so because dryer think there are no wet cloths to dry. hope this help you.

My Kenmore elite dryer mod 110 62932100 won't stay running.


Some dryers have a moisture sensing strip in the drum area of the dryer. If this sensor gets coated with an insulator, like silicon from the backing on carpets, it does not sense moisture. When this happens, the dryer times out and shuts down. This prevents the dryer from running even after the clothes are dry.

Kenmore dryer 110.86864100 - Where is the moisture sensor?


Ain't no moisture sensor. This is is not an electronic sensing machine. It uses another method to determine dryness. An orange wire connects to the base of the heating element. The timer motor is driven by power from it in auto dry. The timer motor is VERY slow. Slower than most dryer timer motors.As the clothes get dryer the heat is not needed so the element is turned off by the control thermostat which is mounted next to the skinny white fuse on the blower housing. This allows for the turtle like motor on the timer to advance. Once the clothes get to the point of dryness the heater stays off way longer and the timer motor advances on over to the cool down and carry on over to the end of cycle. So the clothes won't always be dry due to factors like lint buildup in the blower housing, venting to outside and so forth. having said that my mom bought a brand new Kenmore dryer and I set it on 55 minutes timed drying. At the end of that them clothes is still damp. I then set it to auto dry high heat and that usually gets em dry. I think the main probo with this dryer is the thermostat ain't set as high as older models to keep the heat at a moderate temp so that the limits won't blow on models in apts and such. Just a theory.

My 460kenmore electric dryer wont shut off auto dry


Your moisture sensor is not detecting the moisture levels in the dryer, this may be a simple matter of lint on the sensor of could be a faulty sensor.

Have a Whirlpool AWZ3413 tumble dryer that will only run for a few minutes before the filter light goes on and the heat stops. The filter isn't clogged, but if I scrape off the tiny amount of fluff...


Here are more possible routes:

Duet Dryer Moisture Sensor Bar part WP3387223 How To Replace (See the KENMORE note below)... You MAY want to try cleaning the Sensor with a Q-Tip and alcohol! Not too much though... just a dab.

more from the Internet...

"This is most likely due to the vent being clogged between the back of the dryer and where ever it exits the house! This accounts for the light and the long drying times. A dryer not only relies on heat but also air flow to dry. if air flow is restricted, drying times get much longer since the moist air can not exit the dryer."

whirlpool awz3413 filter light keeps coming on even though

Here is a VIDEO for a similar KENMORE (Whirlpool). IF you suspect the SENSOR is bad and HOW to replace it:

We have a Frigidaire Gallery dryer with a moisture sensor. I've had this model in the past with no concerns, but our current model doesn't seem to work as well. When set to an "automatic" cycle...


mamch,
You said,We have a Frigidaire Gallery dryer with a moisture sensor. I've had this model in the past with no concerns, but our current model doesn't seem to work as well. When set to an "automatic" cycle (where the moisture sensor is used) the clothes don't always come out dry and it has to be turned on again. Would there be any reason for this?

What's the model # and the age?
There are two types of moisture sensors.
One has to strips of metal on a black disk looking thing on the dryer rear wall and the other works on steam rather than contact!
Could be you had the better on before that was the contact one rather than the steamm sensor!

Moisture sensor


With out a sensor you auto dry will not work (less dry/more dry)

the sensor is just inside the door to the right two metal lines ... take a wet towel and make sure that the sensor is clean...

I would suggest you check the vent that it is clean and clear and open...

also check the #8577274 Thermistor

hope it helps
