There’s a little story first before I get to my question…
It seems my dryer has issues telling when the clothes are dry if I put it on any of the moisture sensing settings, but it does not usually finish drying the clothes if I use the maximum amount of time that I can set (I believe it’s 90 minutes).
I already have a webCoRE piston and an Energy monitor plug setup to know when the dryer is running (it’s a gas dryer). One of the things I check for in my piston is how long the dryer ran. Well, last night I tossed a load of clothes in the dryer and went to bed. This morning the dryer was still running seven hours later.
So the question is, do a get the dryer repair guy out there, or do I just add some code to my piston which says something like?
IF dryer has been running more than X hours then turn off the plug that provides AC power to the dryer.
I know all of this is possible…but before I go down that path I just want to make sure that there won’t be some adverse effects to me cutting the AC power to the dryer like that while it is running.
