I have a Kenmore HE3 dryer (model 110.82832100) that doesn't move through the status indicators. On the auto programs the dryer will always indicate "clothes wet" and the timer will eventually get to 14 min. Then it will just continue to dry for hours until you either manually stop it (I think there may be a hard limit on running time 'cuz I think it stops after a few hours).

The Limed dry buttons work fine. It will shut off after the specified amount of time. The poblem only occures with the pre-programmed buttons. The clothes will infact be quite dry and toasty, the dryer just thinks they are still wet.

I really want to fix this since when it is my wifes turn to do the laundry she tends to get distracted and keeps shrinking my shirts, not to mention the electricity cost. :(

** the dryer just thinks they are still wet. **

There are 2-metal strips (see the following links - not great illustrations unfortunately) by the lint filter housing which when wet clothing comes in contact with them, closes an electrical *circuit* which tells the control the clothing is still wet.



Sometimes coins can be stuck between the sensor strips which causes a permanent short making the dryer always think the clothes are wet. Another possibility is that they or their connecting wiring has come loose and is shorting somewhere. Lastly a problem in the electronic control itself could be responsible. :(
