So we have a Maytag dryer that is about 6 years old. Recently, when we're drying clothes in the 'AutoDry' setting, it no longer turns off. Usually, the setting will adjust according to the moisture level of the clothes and turn off when it senses the clothes are dry. Now, it just stays at the setting you put it at (More Dry or Less Dry) and doesn't turn off unless you manually turn it off. We didn't realize it one night and the clothes were drying for about 6 hours before we finally figured out that the dryer was still on.
Anyone out there know a thing or two about dryers and what could be wrong with this? I'm hoping that it's just a simple part that has gone bad and we only need a quick replacement piece instead of an entire new dryer. Any help you could lend would be appreciated. Thanks.
