Question and Answers

Q:

Humidity sensor on Kitchen Aid dryer, still waiting for an answer.

A:

I am sorry that we missed your response where you provided the model number. This dryer does not use moisture sensor bars. The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. In the auto cycle, the timer is advanced when the operating thermostat opens to shut off the heating element. The timer contact TM - CS is open as shown below. The resistor shown in the circuit traced in red provides a neutral potential so that the timer advances when the heating element is off. You could have a bad resistor (Key 8 in the parts diagram shown in the second image). I recommend that you unplug the dryer and measure the resistance through that component with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure between 4050 and 4950 ohms through the resistor. If you don't measure that resistance then you will need to replace that component (part 279872), You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the resistor is okay then you likely have a failure in the wiring circuit. You can check the connection of the wire to the resistor from the heating element (with the dryer still unplugged). Remove the back panel to access the heating element in the back of the dryer. You can also check the wiring connection between the resistor and the timer.

These tips should help you resolve this dryer problem. I you need more help, let us know. I will monitor this question for your response in case you respond and need more assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
