Thanks for responding...any help you can provide will be much appreciated.
The wife reported last night that the load she was trying to dry (small, well wrung out) wasn't drying so we took the clothes out and left the dryer so I could check it this morning. I checked for blower action which seemed fine. I turned on the timed dry function and there was hot air coming out of the outside discharge vent which seemed to indicate that the problem might be with the sensor circuitry. I went ahead and ran the sensor controlled cycle and it also blew hot air??. One thing - I can't be sure without actually drying a load (which will be tonight) but although the vent is discharging hot air, it doesn't seem to be as hot as I seem to remember the last time I cleaned the outside vent. The only other thing I noticed is that the LEDs that indicate wet, damp, cooldown, dry, and wrinkle prevent no longer illuminate which might support the problem being with the sensor circuitry but if so, would it still heat - perhaps at some default setting if the sensors don't work?? I guess I should ask if the timed cycles are completely seperate from the sensor controlled cycles?
I did vaccum out the filter housing (didn't really need it) and wiped down the moisture sensors inside the drum(they looked OK) "just "to be sure".
