I have an LG DLG5988. It stopped working on all sensor dry settings.
Specifically, it starts out at around 40 minutes, then drops to 15 minutes after only a minute or two, then to 6 minutes, then shuts off with the clothes still wet.
It works fine on timed dry/manual settings.
I ordered and replaced both drying sensors, but the issue persists.

I do not see any error codes displayed

What else could be causing this?

Thanks for your help and expertise. I was afraid that might be the case. It’s not worth repairing. I’m sure not going to go to all the trouble to buy and install a used part from EBay
