Cause 1

Dryer Sensor

The dryer sensor is responsible for telling the Programme Control Board how wet your laundry is, so it can stop the cycle when dry.

Safety First! Please make sure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before beginning any repair.

To access the dryer sensor take off the upper lid by removing the screws.
  • Depending on the model, locate the washer dryer sensor within the ducting area.
  • Occasionally the electrical wires leading to the sensor may be damaged due to being worn or excess tension.
  • Check the dryer sensor resistance using a multimeter.
