Product Description

This is an authentic OEM replacement moisture sensor for your dryer. The sensor detects the moisture levels in your clothing while the appliance is operating, and once the appropriate level has been reached, your laundry should be dry and the dryer will stop. If the machine is stopping and your clothes are still wet, the sensor may need to replaced. The sensor can be found behind the lint filter, please note that some models contain two sensors. They are sold individually, so please order the correct quantity. Before beginning this repair, be sure to disconnect the power supply to the dryer.

    I have a Maytag dryer that heats up but won't dry. It keeps running and resets its dry time over and over. I think it is the dry sensor. How many do I need for this model?

        Would not dry clothes completely in any setting.
        As this site recommends the parts that would be needed to fix the problem, it recommends the most likely to the least likely. Of course I bought the least likely and proceeded to buy all parts up the the most likely. All though I only spent about $100.00 total, it was the most likely that fixed the problem. The fixes were fairly easy to do and were all made from the front side of the unit. Not much space to work in but made all the fixes with out issues. Unit seems to be running well. Glad I did it myself, would do it again!
