Maytag MEDX655DW0 does not dry on the sensor dry setting

Hello all,

I have a Maytag MEDX655DW0 electric dryer. The dryer works fine when I use the timed setting but does not heat when I use the sensor dry setting. Could this just be a dirty or faulty sensor?

Hi Chase,

I think you're on the right track with the moisture sensor. The PartSelect website has the part, and they offer Q&A for their customers. Here's a customer question that applies to your situation.

Unit works on timed dry. Does not heat on sensor dry. Do i need a moisture sensor.

For model number 110.86582110

Hello Art, thank you for your question. The moisture sensor would be the first part I would suggest replacing. A functioning moisture sensor is imperative for the sensor dry setting to work properly. I hope this helps!

Here's a link to the part and page in question.

Electrode/Sensor 279366

Personally, I would shop around, as it's quite likely you can find that same part cheaper on other sites such as eBay or Amazon, but this is definitely the right one for your dryer.

Obviously you'll want to make sure it doesn't just have a wire that fell off or something, so if nothing obvious can be found, replacing the sensor is your best bet here.

Thank you for the response. I actually took the easy way out at tried going over the sensor bats with sand paper to make sure they weren't just dirty. So far it seams that that did the trick


Great to hear, Chase! Easy, cheap fix; nice job!
