My experience with HOH dryers with dryness sensors, has been that for some reason, they were far more accurate than the ones in dryers today. I think it's because there were so many of them located right in the tumbling fins. The HOH dryers were whisper quiet. Unfortunately, their capacity was incredibly teeny and didn't match the 18 pound washers with which they were often sold.

I agree that Maytag dryers’ automatic dry cycle is spot on. No under- or over-drying ever.

I unfortunately don’t really have any experience with the electronic dry control on the HOH dryers and the electronic dry control did work for the first few times on my 1973 Maytag DG606 but soon was having a mind of it’s own and wasn’t shutting off. I ended up just converting my 1973 Maytag DG606 to a DG306 timer dryer and haven’t had any issues with it since I converted it to a timer dryer last year. Most of the wiring was about completely done for since the original owners’ left the pilot light on and after years of it on it just ate up all the wiring and what took it out of service is the clips that hold the motor down to the base got so rusty they ended up just snapping and since the motor was no longer driving the belts and that’s what took it out of service.

Some photos of when I took the back panel off of my 1973 Maytag DG606 when I brought it home last year in 2019
