Fix – Kenmore Elite Dryer not working in Automatic Drying mode
Here’s our symptoms:
Dryer works in automatic with very full loads
Dryer leaves clothes wet when in automatic mode
Dryer works fine on timed mode
Here’s the fix:
Re-level the dryer – even maybe a slight bias to the front of the dryer.
Here’s the why:
There’s a set of moisture sensing electrodes (metal strips) in the front of the dryer (see article). If your dryer has a backwards bias (tipped backwards), then the wet clothes will not touch the sensor unless there’s enough of them to tumble onto the sensor.
