6500EL3001A Dryer Moisture Sensor For LG

Repair Skill Level: 2 | Beginner to Moderate
Minimal disassembly (if any) and some basic tools may be needed.

Part Description: The moisture sensor detects moisture in laundry for auto dry.

Failure Symptoms: Dryer not advancing properly; Dyer won't stop; Dryer taking too long even when clothes are dry.

Testing: Before replacing, try to resolve the problem by cleaning the moisture sensor. Take some steel wool or dish scrubber and scrub away any dirt and dryer sheet residue on the sensor bars. Then use a damp cloth to wipe away loosened dirt and remaining residue. Next use the dry cloth to dry off any moisture and give your sensor one last good scrub and polish. Test your now clean sensor bar by placing some dry clothes in your dryer turning on the automatic cycle. If your moisture sensors are working correctly, the machine should switch off after just a few minutes. If not, you know there’s a more significant issue with your moisture sensors, and they should be replaced.

Bonus Tip: Make sure to rule out other part failures related to air flow restrictions prior to replacing the moisture sensor bar.
