    The dryer shuts off before the cloths are dry. Exhaust tube and interior of dryer have been cleaned. If dryer vent screen is scrubbed with tooth brush after each cycle dryer will dry cloths correctly. Dryer only has a timer and no moisture sensor cycle. What is causing the the problem?
    For model number 11069622800
    Hi Carl, Thank you for your question. There are a few parts that you can check. I would suggest checking all of your thermostats and your thermal fuses. According to your model number, your appliance actually does have a moisture sensor, it is the part that you have questioned underneath. So you should check that as well. I would also suggest taking a look at your exhaust hose and make sure you don't have a build up of lint inside of the hose that goes to the outside. Sometimes that will make your appliance over heat and so your thermostats and thermal fuses will shut down the appliance. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

    I've thoroughly cleaned the exhaust vent and replaced the thermal fuse and internal bias thermostat. When i use the "more dry / less dry" setting, the dryer does not heat at all and i smell natural gas. When i use the "timed dry" setting, the heat kicks in. But near the end of the cycle i can smell gas again. Thanks for any suggestions.
    For model number 11074922200
    Hi Rich, Thank you for your question. There are a few other parts that you can take a look at for no heat. You should take a look at your radiant flame sensor, your igniter itself, and your door switch. You should be able to test all of those parts with a multi meter to see if any of them are malfunctioning. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

    A piece of the dryer got tangled up and ripped off of the bulkhead. I think it is part 24 however i remember it had a wire also attached to the part which is not shown on the parts diagram. What is the name of part 24?

    Hello John, thank you for your question. That is the Moisture Sensor, part number PS11723108 for your model dryer. The Jumper Wire is part number PS11741634. I hope this helps!

    Can you use the dryer when the inside sensor number 25 has fallen off
    For model number WED5000DW2
    Hello Thomas, Thank you for the question. In most cases the dryer will not dry the clothes properly without the sensor. Hope this helps!

    Mfg # w10816105 moisture sensor fell out of the dryer. While looking at the replacement part it looks just like what i have that will not stay in place. Is there another part that will keep it in place. The bottom slot on the dryer is way bigger than the top slot.
    For model number LEQ9508PW0
    Hi Melissa, Thank you for your question. There is a video on our website that you may reference on how to install the moisture sensor. You will find the video under part number PS11741408. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    When using accudry sensor function, dryer does not always heat. It still heats on timed dry and other settings, just not always in the sensor position.
    For model number WED5000DW2
    Hello Matt, Thank you for your question. Our sources suggest replacing the timer under part PS11749833 for your model to fix the sensor cycle issues. We hope this helps.

    Dryer will not start. Belt is good and door switch appears to turn light and timer on and off but barrel will not turn. What else could be the problem other than the motor?
    For model number LEQ7030KQ1
    Hi Larry, Thank you for your question. You should probably take a look at your thermal fuse, your push to start switch, and your thermostats. Those would be the most likely parts that could cause the issue. You should be able to test them with a multi meter. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

        Dryer shutting off prematurely
        1. Popped off hinged dryer lid at front and supported to allow access to lint chute
        2. Removed back sheet metal panel
        3. Removed dryer chute to expose sensor; removed same-deformed terminal on top needs to be straightened with pliers to remove through slot.
        4. Installed new sensor; terminal needs to be twisted to ensure solid installation and good ground. Bottom pops in but took a bit of finagling.

        Accessing and replacing the sensor was straightforward enough; bulk of the job was cleaning off old gasket material (severely degraded) in two locations. Used plastic scraper and razor blade scraper, then cleaned sticky with goo gone. Installed new gasket strip from Home Depot; available in rolls. I used 1/4" x 3/8". Surprising how much lint/hair/debris was in bottom of lint chute. Glad to get it all clean.
