Whether your Maytag, LG, or General Electric dryer stops prematurely or doesn’t dry clothes efficiently, the issue often lies in the moisture sensor.
Understanding Moisture Sensors in Dryers
The moisture sensor is a key component in dryers, impacting brands like Amana, Haier, and SubZero alike. Located usually on the lint filter housing grille or rear bulkhead, it gauges humidity inside the drum. This is essential in Miele, KitchenAid, and Kenmore dryers for determining when the drying cycle should stop.
