So, first off.... We bought this dryer only 3 years ago, so its out of warranty. Who purchases those extended warranties?
Well...I wished I would've!!!
I always use the Normal setting, high heat, auto dry.... it supposed to shut off when it senses the clothes are dry. Just yesterday, it stopped running after 10 (or so) minutes and has done this a few times since (inconsistantly). I always clean the filter every time. We checked the duct work and cleaned things up a bit. Cleaned the sensor strips (they weren't really dirty at all..??).
When I first turn on the dryer, it'll show 42 minutes on the dial (like it always does). I never really stood there long enough to see if the time changes drastically (or not). Currently, I'm trying the 'more dry' setting to see if anything changes.
I would assume this is 'sensor' related....?? But I honestly don't know...... Getting this thing out to diagnose is going to be a PITA.
Thanks ahead of time!! Loved this dryer....until now. Why can't things last anymore?
