Fingerprint scanner not working

So for the last month give or take my fingerprint scanner is not working (properly). Every time it either says that it doesn't recognize my fingerprint or it doesn't even scan it (no vibration, no message on screen and, of course, no unlocking my phone). I have tried deleting and adding again my fingerprints, as well as cleaning and drying my fingers every time before unlocking it, but it doesn't work. Nevertheless, the slide down to open notifications works just fine every time. I can only think that this problem is due to an error on the June security patch on which I'm still stuck (build 22A, anyone?). What could this be? Thank you.

If you can delete then add a new fingerprint then surely the scanner is working. Are you placing the pad (not the tip like a normal tap action) of your finger properly on the sensor?
