No parts needed for this repair! Get a warm damp cloth and reach inside the rear of the dryer and clean the **** off the 2 strips of metal in the back called sensors. Next get the rear of the timer panel off and yank out the small computer board next to the timer. This is the moisture sensing board. Get some alcohol and clean the copper contacts. Shove the board back in and retry.

My dryer does not completely dry the clothes when we use the dryness sensing option. It does fine when we use the timer. Is there a moisture sensor that I might be able to replace ?


Dryers with electronic control and auto dry cycle indeed use moisture sensors for the auto drying to work. The problem is absolutely associated with the failure of the moisture sensors, especially when the timed dry cycle works fine. Either the connection of the sensors to the electronic control is loose or the sensors are covered with thin film that prevents it to sense the proper moisture content of the clothes.

Clean the moisture sensor bars thoroughly and make sure its connections are snug fit. Reseat the connections several times to clean off dirt and corrosion build up in the connectors and terminals. The last thing to look into is the electronic control if all resort fail to address the issue, that is, clean sensor bars and good terminal connections.

Indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further or more specific troubleshooting and repair advice.

Our Superba (what a joke) Model KEMS308 / KEMS378 has the exact same temperature probe problem where the plug where the probe is inserted is supposedly getting dirty BECAUSE THERE ISN'T A COVER OVER IT...


Common Problem, design defect allows moisture or corrosion on terminals, to cause this problem. Two ways of repairing this. 1: Plug probe in, hang probe out the door, input 160 degree probe temp, turn convection bake to 450 degrees and let it bake for a while. Turn unit off, unplug probe and test to see if the problem is resolved. If it is moisture, the high heat bakes out the moisture and resolves the issue. We have also had some luck with a hair dryer blowing on the probe receptacle to dry out the receptacle. 2: You can pull the entire unit out of the wal with the power off at the circuit breaker, remove the backing panel, and disconnect the wiring to the probe. Some units you have to remove a side panel instead. You won't be able to use the probe in the future if you do this, and you do have to insulate the wires terminals or plug. As always, if you don't know what you are doing with electricity, call a technician to do this repair, it is better to be safe. Also as an aside, I work on all brands of ovens and we find that the Kitchen Aid models have the fewest repairs and the greatest reliability, everybody has design defects and most of the other brands have deliberately built in these defects for faster replacement. The only advice on the Kitchen Aid units that I recommend is that when you do replace it that you buy a separate oven and seperate microwave oven. Most microwave ovens are only lasting 8 to 15 years before major repairs, yet the ovens last 30 to 40 years. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

We just recently bought it used and had it moved. Now there is a constant shadow and on words its even worse. I can't get into the program to align it manualy. Can I find a way to do it myself or do I need...


Most likely a repairman - but review the info below to determine

convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

It heats, but won't shut off when using the moisture sensor


The moisture sensor is shot and needs replacing It works till it sees dry air going past it (As set by the maker)if it thinks the air is still moist it will keep on trying to dry it. Call out a repairman or buy a sensor and fit it yourself

Maytag MDE7400AYW taking 2 or 3 cycles to dry


it's probably your sensor assembly. go to www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-MDE7400AY-%3d%3d&z=100 . That is the best possible solution and not too expensive. Good luck.

Moisture sensor not working


Once I discovered that the problem was not the dryer, I went into my crawl space and discovered the plastic duct was clogged with lint. Apparently the duct was not changed since the house was built over five years ago! The 4" duct was also duct taped to a 3" connector. Additionally the line ran into the crawl space at a 90 degree angle in a space that was only 2" wide! My husband adjusted the way the line ran into the crawl space and replaced it with a rigid aluminum duct. The auto sense works on my dryer and it takes only 30 min. to dry a load of laundry instead of 1-1/2 hours!

I have an f3 code coming up on my stove. the manual says to call a repairman..the stove is 9 years old it may not be worth the repair. can you tell me what this f3 means...thanks


This error indicates the Oven temperature sensor has failed,
You will need to replace the Oven temperature sensor (RTD).

This part can usually be replaced from inside the oven.

If you checked the batteries, thats about all you can do unless you want to get a schematic, and trouble shoot the remote if you have electronic know how. go to http://www.remotes.com and enter your model number to see how much an original replacement will cost. A universal should work for the power volume and channels, but will not work for the menue or setup.
