Manufactured by LG

The sensor controls the temperature in your dryer and will turn off once your clothes have reached the desired dryness level. If you notice that your dryer is not giving off enough heat to dry the clothes or is taking too long to dry, this may indicate that a repair to the senor is required. To access this part, you will need to remove the front bulk head. To remove this, you will need to remove the screws securing the top. Uninstall the screws that support the control panel and lift. Remove screws holding the support bracket in place so you can detach this piece. Detach the wire harness and remove the wire, then set the bracket aside. You will now open the dryer door and release it by taking out the bottom two screws. Disconnect the wire harness and moisture sensor wire harness, remove screws from front bulk head, and remove screws that secure the duct housing. You should be able to completely remove the bulk head. You will find the sensor underneath the lint filter grill, which will also need to be removed.

This part works with the following brands: LG, Kenmore, General Electric

This part fixes the following symptoms: No heat or not enough heat | Takes too long to dry | Shuts off too soon

Question:

My dryer cooling light always on and have no heating at all

Ken for model number 796.80021900

Answer:

Hi Ken, Thank you for your question. If the light is always on and there is no heat, then you may have an issue with the moisture sensing circuit. If this is the issue, you will need to test the dryer to see if it will heat and work properly in a time dry cycle. If the dryer is working properly, then you will need to check the sensor bars to see if there is any lint on them. If there is lint on them they will not detect any moisture. The bars are located on the lint screen. If they are clean, then you will need to check the control board and the wiring connected to it. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Answer:

Hi Dave, Thank you for your question. So you have multiple thermostats and thermal fuses in your appliance. I would suggest testing all of those parts with a multi meter to see if they are working correctly. You can test them all with a multi meter, they should all read close to 0 ohms to be working correctly. You may also want to test your heating element itself as well. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Gary for model number DLG5966W
January 15, 2018
Answer:

Hi Gary, Thank you for your question. If your dryer is shutting down too soon, the sensor does fix the issue the majority of the time. There are some other parts that you will need to check as well. You will need to check the thermostat, the lint filter and thermistor. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Dryer not heating
I followed video instruction in disassembling and set screws from each section into diferent small bowls in the order they were removed. Hardest part was some of the screws were really hard to get loose without stripping them and my control panel did not match video but I figured it out. Replacing the parts were easy and putting it back together. While it was apart I cleaned everything including fan blower wheel. Thanks for the right parts and your online video. With your help and a prayer this 62 year old woman fixed the problem and dryer runs like new.
