Sensor dry would not work

When on the sensor dry setting, the clothes would not get dry, but would get dry on the timed dry setting. So good heat and rotating drum.

We first cleaned the moisture sensor inside the door, located on the vent screen. Once clean, we ran again. It still did not function. We checked the vent and piping for obstructions and all was clear.

From there, we took off the upper panel where the moisture sensor connect to the sensor control board. Used a continuity meter to determine if the signal was getting from the sensor to the board. With the sensor on a low setting, we ran a wet cloth across the sensor and we had continuity from the sensor to the board.

At that point, we replaced the board. It had to sets of wires connected to it, that snapped out easily and it smply snapped out of its position. The new board went into position as easily as the old came out. Reconnected the wire harnesses and re-assembled the upper covers.

Once re-assembled, we ran a load and it cycled as it should.
