Default Whirlpool Gas Dryer Moisture Sensor Access
Model Number: LG7681SXW2   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I need to measure/replace my moisture sensor but I've run into a problem. My dryer has a sheet metal brace 6 to 8 inches high that runs across the back of the dryer about 2.5 to 3 feet from the floor. This brace is tack-welded to the dryer frame and it is preventing me from removing the exhaust duct that runs between the lint filter and the exhaust port. No amount of twisting or turning the duct will free it. This dryer is about 20 years old. The brace on newer versions is located higher and does not block the exhaust duct. How can I remove the duct without disassembling the entire dryer?

Skuddle, " To remove lint chute" 1. Remove four(4) screws securing the chute to the blower housing. 2. Remove two(2) screws on the right upper bracket securing the bulkhead. 3. Pull the bulkhead forward and lift out the chute through the top. Be careful not to damage either seal on the lint chute as it is removed. One lint chute seal is on the back of the bulkhead around the outlet manifold. The other seal is located where the chute flange mates with the blower housing. NOTE: If the lower lint chute seal works loose, it will flap against the blower wheel. It can be easily cemented back into place with an adhesive. " This should get you the access to the sensor assembly clips and wires.

Thank you for your instructions. I'll pull the dryer out again and give them a try. IIRC from last week, I thought the drum would fall out of its position if I did that, so I'll be careful.

Skuddle, Removing the drum will make things go a lot easier on you. The few seconds it'll take to remove and reinstall may be worth it.
