UK Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Unplug the appliance for at least 2 hours to reset the electronics. Does the behavior change when plugged back in? Will it start?
Inside the dryer are two metal strips that sense the moisture in the clothes. The clothing passes over the strips and create an electrical path with the moisture in them. The metal strips sense the resistance in that electrical path and send that resistance reading to the control. The control then reads the resistance reading, interprets the resistance and from that reading determines how long the dryer needs to run. The less moisture in the clothing, the higher the resistance. The problem is that over time, detergent and softener residue builds up on the metal sensor strips and creates an insulating barrier between the strips and the clothing. Since the strips cannot sense the moisture in the clothing because of this barrier, it sends a high resistance reading to the control. Can you clean those strips with sand paper or scouring pad and see if it changes?
Does it shut off fine in a timed cycle setting?
Thank you. The control board for the sensor cycle will need to be replaced.
I cannot find your model exactly and I would hate to give you misinformation. The link below is to a Maytag parts outlet that will be able to locate your exact model for the correct part information.
