Do you know if my dryer has a sensor bar and how do I remove the front to clean out all the lint that is in there

there are 2 phillips screws o the bottom of the front about 4" up
from the bottom. remove them and pull out from the bottom until it gets to knee height and the top part
should come loose (hinged to the top with clips).

remove the door switch wires.

remove the (4) 5/16 screws holding the bulkhead to the frame. pull the bulkhead off.

wallah.....thats it.

Pay close attenion when reinstalling the bulkhead...the round
felt blower housing seal that the lint screen duct goes inside of has
a tendency to fold over on the bottom side when trying to insert the duct.

if it folds over it can cause an airflow restriction.

Thanks

Have you found the sensor yet??? Can you find your wire diagram, in the console.....I had a Maytag dryer last week and the model number sounds familiar...... Does the console at the dryer timer indicate a a AUTO-DRY cycle???? I looked for one on the inside of the unit I had but no sensor. Look on the wire diagram and find a cycling thermostat, it will have four wires............ one pair is for the heater element, the other pair , one wire from the t-stat goes to the timer motor but i forget where the other wire goes....................ANY way if you look at the t-stat when it calls for heat, the contacts close................ when it reaches temp. it opens, but it also closes a circuit for the timer motor to advance... timer will advance when the element is 'off' ................... Whirlpool had a system like this one.............. If you find a sensor dis regard this post. keep us posted...

I just can't seem to find it.

after another look,
the parts diagram shows the Moisture Sensor, but no reference to it in the parts list.
That model version might not have one...
A look at the wiring diagram would confirm, but can't find one for that older c.1992 model
It may use an electrical technique to sense wet clothes.
