Hi James, Thank you for your inquiry. Where the dryer is shutting off too soon, There are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the internal bias thermostat, the sensor electrode, the high limit thermostat, the thermal fuse, and the lint filter. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

My dryer sometimes runs on and on even when cloths are totally dry . Could this be a faulty moisture sensor?

When I turn my dryer on the timer is set for 35 min. Within 10 min. The timer will say you have 11 min to go & then dryer stops to early & clothes didn't get to dry for 35 min. Could you tell me why? Thank you, Pam
For model number WED8300SW0
Hi Pam, Thank you for the question. This sounds like an issue with the timer. The timer is built into the control board, PartSelect Number PS11746631 on this model. The board is not repairable so it will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

I noticed it was taking a much longer time for my clothes to dry. I also noticed when i pushed the button on the front of the machine to select "dryness level", the light was out. My husband thinks the moisture sensor is bad. Would that cause the "dryness level" selection light to not illuminate?
For model number WGD75HEFW0
Hi Lori, Thank you for your question. If your clothes are taking too long to dry, the moisture sensor is just one of the parts you will need to check. There are some other parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the coils, the radiant flame sensor, the internal bias thermostat, the igniter and the belt. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

My dryer turns off after a while, senor says check lint filter, I cleaned the trap, taken off grill cleaned down in lint trap also cleaned outside vent also shop vac inside dryer. Thanks
For model number MGDB700BW0
Hi Tim, Thank you for the question. You can try to press and hold Save Energy button for 3 seconds if you have one,that resets it. The "Check lint screen" light is just a reminder to check and clean the lint screen before or after each load. There is no sensor that will detect if it's clean. The Check lint screen should turn off as soon as the dryer is started. You can try to check the wire harness between the console and the electronic control board. The control board might need to be replaced if the light will not go off. Hope this helps!

Lights are on but the unit will not start. I turned it off as during the cycle it seemed hot. Do you have any suggestions?
For model number gew9250pw1
Hello Dan, The thermal fuse is the most likely reason for both symptoms happening. You may wish to use a multi-meter to test the part for continuity, and replace it if it is not showing continuity. I hope this helps.

    Moisture sensors need replacement
    Inside the dryer tub, remove the filter housing by removing two phillips head screws. Unplug the sensor wires, note when replacing wires, black wire goes on upper sensor.
    Separate filter grill from housing. Using the pliers, compress the tabs on the sensor plugs and push it thru the grill. The small blade screwdriver may come in handy here to pry up on sensor to assist in pulling the plug end through the grill. Replace the sensors by hooking short end into grill and pushing the long end through the grill. When replacing the housing to the dryer, the most difficult thing is getting the screwdriver onto the recessed screws. Be sure to put the tab on top of the housing under the dryer frame when rotating the assembly into place.

    The sensor would not slide into grill
    Initially, i watched the how to do it instruction in the fix website to determine the complexity of repairs. The instruction built up my confidence. I ordered and recieved the grill amd the two new sensors. I placed the two new sensors into the new grill sensor slots. Then removed the old grill by unscrewing three screws. Connected the two sensors positioned the grill and screwed in the three screws put the lent stray in the grill and closed the dyer door. I have been a happy camper ever since. I saved the $75 home insurance fee plus maintenence installment. Thanks

    Dryer would run 1 min then stop running with some heat in drum
    Videos are excellent to open and access internal parts. It turned out a rat was killed in the blower fan when we first encountered the problem. This prevented the blower from turning which interfered with motor function.

    This required removing drum & belt, disconnecting motor clips, blower belt, and blower housing. The blower housing needed to be disassembled. Having a 5/16” & 1/8” ratcheting nut driver makes this process much easier. Don’t try this with a wrench.

    After getting rid of the rat and decomposition, we sanitized the entire housing with soap & chlorine bleach.

    Reassembly was uneventful and relatively easy. We ended up replacing 4 rollers, 2 belts (drum belt & blower belt), the thermistor which was damaged as a result of the blocked blower.
