Moisture Sensor / Automatic Dry cycle?
« on: May 09, 2011, 11:36:34 AM »

This dryer has the automatic dry cycle, but it is not drying in this cycle, but does dry in a timed cycle. When I look for parts there is no "moisture sensor" listed for this dryer, which I thought would be the problem.

I have yet to open it up.

What does this dryer use for feedback in the "auto" cycle?


Model LGR4634JQ2

It relies on the temp thermistars and a hi-temp  cutout, both of which are triggered by a vent restriction. Try pulling it out so you can unhook the vent and run a load without it. If a difference is noted, report back with your findings.

A good description of your vent setup at this point would be long, vertical or  horizontal, etc...
