This dryer will cut off way too early in the automatic cycles. I put it in diagnostics a few times and the moisture sensor checks ok everytime. No visible pits in the sensor either. It is cycling on and off at the correct temperature, and the vent is not obstructed. I taped a quarter across the moisture sensor to simulate wet clothes, and it still skips the time. On normal, it starts at 35 minutes, runs for about 5 minutes and then skips all the way down to 5 minutes remaining (this is with the quarter taped over the sensor).

Normally, I would try a moisture sensor before a board, but with it still skipping time with the quarter taped over it, I figure it's got to be the control board.

I've come to the conclusion the control board is faulty. Just wanted to get other opinions.

Thanks!

Check page 8 of the Tech sheet for the procedure to diagnose between board, sensor or harness. I would say about 70% of the time it is the board, but I've also done a number of harnesses. Never had a bad sensor on that unit yet ... If you need the techsheet, maybe someone can post it for you - or I can do it when I get home tonight.
