Smartload model dryer has been in service since Jan. 2005.

Resolved Question:

Smartload model dryer has been in service since Jan. 2005. Lately after starting in auto sensing mode, I get a period beep warning that auto sensing is not working. Sometimes shifting the load (medium including denimn, towel and cotton) helps, but not always. The vent is clear and lint trap empty.

If you look inside the dryer by the lint screen you will see two parallel metal "bars" inlaid inside the dryer.


These are the sensor for automatic dry, if they are coated with fabric softener it can cause longer dry times and errors, the first thing you want to do is clean that very well, I have seen that cause many problems.
