Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 5 months ago.

The unit will always say there is an open circuit between the dryness bars unless there is wet clothing touching both bars at the same time, but it does sound like the issue is related to the dryness system since it's dropping to 1 minute after it runs for a minute. So the way the system works is that there are 2 metal bars which sense if the clothing are wet still or not. If wet clothing doesn't touch both sensors at the same time within a couple minutes the dryer shuts down early. So open the door and locate the 2 metal parallel bars below the door way. Clean these bars with white vinegar and a towel. Put in a load of wet clothing (a full load) and if it still shuts down after 2 or 3 minutes, you have a bad control board so the main control board would need to be replaced.

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 5 months ago.
I'm not sure what you mean by "lower dry, upper dry working"
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 5 months ago.
This is a full cabinet unit? Nothing you stated in the original question says anything about that or the fact that the lower dryer wasn't hearing so I think it's time to call a technician out
