Kenmore Dryer Shuts Off Prematurely


Hey all,

I have a Kenmore 90 Series gas dryer that seems to turn off after minutes when on the auto cycle. This cycle, I assume, is controlled by a moisture sensor. When I put the dryer on timed cycle everything works as it is supposed to. I can buy a new moisture sensing bar for like $4 if that is the problem. Are there any other malfunctions that would cause this to happen? Thanks for all your help. Scott

If the timer works then I would check the "microcomputer." That's what the problem was when this happened to my neighbor's Kenmore.. Good luck, let us know how things go

Looks like that board is 100 bucks + shipping from sears. I would get the model number off the board itself and check applianceparts .com Probably Whirlpool. Parts are
outrageous. They want 52 bucks for a damn knob

pull the sensor off and see if the wires are loose or came off. Doubt it is going to be the board.
