I have a Roper model REX5634KQ1 Electric Dryer. When Running the dryer in the Auto Sense Dry Cycle it requires running the dryer thru 2 or 3 cycles to completely dry the load. Is this a thermostat problem, ducting problem or is there some kind of sensor for this cycle that is going bad. Thanks in advance.

This is a no air flow problem from the dryer to the outside, check your vent hose and the house vent for a blockage. Make sure there is good air flow from the dryer with the vent hose removed to see if the blockage is in the dryer vent housing itself.

I also have the same similar problem. Does this model have a moisture sensor to detect dryness? If so where is it located? I was thinking that part of the problem may be that it is either shorted out or has a film on it from the dryer sheets.

Want to add that I did check the airflow from the dryer to the outside and it appears to be good. Cleaned some lint from the external ductwork and also cleaned the lint screen with warm water and soap. Also I cleaned the inside of the housing that holds the lint screen to remove any lint that was present.

The dryer appears to work fine on the timed dry cycles (either high or low heat) but on the auto sense cycle with the * its seems to either not heat or not heat long enough and I have noticed that the timer knob on the face of the machine does not move and I wonder if there is some kind of connection between whatever senses the dryness of the clothes the auto sense cyle and the element and the timer knob
