Question about KitchenAid KEYS750LQ Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Heating Element no longer working

I have a KitchenAid Electric Dryer KEYS650LQ which I bought brand new approximately a year & a half ago.
The lint collector has always been an issue as it seems the lint never goes up that way. I could do several loads of laundry without the filter becoming full. Come to find out, it was because it was all getting caught in the tube the runs inside the house.
About a month ago, it began to lose heat until finally there was no heat coming from it at all.
I moved the dryer out, disconnected it and removed a ton of lint. Now the heating element won't come back on.
Is this a part that I can buy and Install myself or will I need to have a technician look at it.
If it IS a part that I can buy, about how much do they run and what is the difficulty level on installing it?

Thank you so much for your help
Paige Gray.

Hi Paige
Expect to pay $30 for the kit. it's a 279816 and will take some level of mechanical and technical ability to locate it and affect the repair. This kit addresses 2 issues and should be installed by a certified technician. Your owners manual has a big WARNING!!! block saying what not to do, like Don't use plastic or foil venting. But nobody reads manuals anyway. Most likely you have an aluminum foil colored accordian style vent pipe. That's what caused your thermostats to burn out. Get your drier checked out by a certified tech for safety. Afterwards, keep that vent, clean clean clean and install a sure vent from Whirlpool 4396028. 16,000 homes each year have fires from improperly vented driers according to the U.S. Dept of Consumer Safety.

Clothes dryer shorts every time I turn it on


I assume this is electric dryer vs gas. You most likely have a electric heating element that has broken, and the wire is shorted to cabinet. If you can see inside element, you can often spot the broken wire. Don't try to fix element, you can't splice heating wire, it wont work. Buy a new element.

Electric dryer runs shuts off then starts again on its own


This could be a bunch of different things. #1 detach dryer vent and clean out. Try running dryer with vent not attached for 10 seconds. (Warning, lint and sand will likely come blasting out the back. Reattach and try. #2 Likely is that you have lint buildup inside. Unplug dryer. Remove back cover. Clean air path from exhaust through lint trap. Look inside or remove heater as well. You are likely overheating the dryer and the sensor is shutting it down. #3. Unplug the heating element and then run dryer. Does it shut off still? No Then the sensor on the heating element is bad. Yes then the timer is bad.

As you can see, your heating element has 5 heating coils. If one or more of these coils have opened you dryer will still work and heat but not at well as it would if all coils worked together. You can check each coil with an ohm meter to verify if one or more is open.

Turns on but wont get hot


Hi


The first thing to check is the fuses or breakers in your homes fuse box. If this fuse is blown, it is possible for your dryer to spin but not produce heat. If you've checked the fuses and they are not blown, the next possible cause is the heating element.
To check the heating element, move the back panel of the dryer. You'll need a volt/ohmmeter to check the element terminal. Locate the element and set the volt/ohmmeter on the RX-1 scale. Remove one lead from the element and then place one probe of the volt/ohmmeter on the terminal of the element. Place the other probe of the volt/ohmmeter on the remaining terminal of the element. Look for a continuity reading of the volt/ohmmeter of approximately 2-5 ohms. If there is no continuity reading, the heating element is defective and should be replaced.
Also clean the lint filter every time you use the dryer. Even if the lint filter is cleaned after every load, lint will still accumulate around the dryer's moving parts, the exhaust duct and vent. Each year inspect the vent pipe and vent cover operation. Disconnect the exhaust duct and remove lint from the internal exhaust pipe, the duct and the vent. Make sure the duct has no kinks, where lint and moisture can build-up.
Turn off the power; remove the front and rear panels and vacuum out the lint from around the motor and idler. Poor air flow uses more energy and can cause lint build-up in the internal ducting, leading to a fire hazard.

Brand new dryer heating element burned out.


If air flow is restricted this can cause it. Or if your voltage is high or if you have received an element that has been stretched and is loose this could cause it. You say immediate and how long in loads or time is this? Are you sure the element still has full voltage (220V aprox) to the element?
