Dont see a model # or make  but here some tips

 

You really need a volt / ohm meter to check for Continuity & Volts

Its well worth the investment... $15.00 bucks give or take a few

I would check to see if you have 220v to back of dryer where the cord mounts to dryer,

If dryer is getting only 1 leg 110 volts instead of the 220 will it not heat.

Check themostates & heater for Continuity... Most models, Now have a..

Hi-limit fuse that need to be checked for Continuity and replaced if bad

if you dont have a ohm meter you can hook the wires together
with a small piece of wire and by pass the themostates and hi limit fuse to see if thats the problem or not

SOURCE: Dryer warm but not hot, long dry times

some times there are multiple heating elements in there and if one is out it does not get as hot. another simpler place to start would be to make sure your line is clear of debries all the way from dryer to out doors. this is a good idea any way since lint build up can cause the occasional house fire.

Sounds like the heating element is not working, make sure you are getting 220 volts to the recptical. Let us know if that did the trick. If not let us know thankyou

SOURCE: Kitchen Aid Dryer KEYE67988LD wont start

you could have several problems but the first thing to do would be to check the door switch. Most of the time you can use a small screwdriver to push the switch in and out. you should hear a click when you do this if the switch is good. you can also use an ohm meter to check the switch if you know how to use one.

another culprit is the thermal fuse located on the back of the machine. you must remove the rear panel. it is usually a small white object with 2 wires attached to it. if for any reason the machine over heats this thermal fuse will shut the dryer down. it is not resetable and must be replaced if no continuity flows through it. if it is bad usually something caused it such as a stopped up vent , crimped hose or possibly a thermostat failure. check these items and clean out the lint on the outside of your house vent as well. don't use plastic vent hose and don't try to push the dryer up too close to the wall causing the vent to partially collapse.

My dryer, Kitchen Aid KEYS850LQ does not cool down! The buzzer goes off, I open the door to remove clothes, and they are so hot I can hardly touch them!!! The dryer is only 6 years old - it never has...


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Roper dryer Mod #RES7646KQ you have to dry the close twice after two times close come out hot and dry what is the problem


Check to make sure that the dryer vent is clean or open. Make sure the dryer lint screen will let air through it...... take it to the kitchen sink and run water through it if water runs through it easily it is OK if it holds water then clean it with dishsoap and try again..... The dry is not getting enough air passed through the dryer.... Also I am assuming that the Washer is wringing out all of the water from the clothes.

Kitchen aid kgys750gq0 works but there is no heat


The KitchenAid KGYS750GQ0 is a gas dryer, so the solution of looking for a heating element is not helpful. There are several heat switches and a gas burner assembly (which includes a gas valve and an electric ignition), any of which could be the problem.

Kitchen Aid Electric Dryer Model # KEYE678BALO, won't start.


This is most often caused by a bad thermal fuse or thermostat high limit cutout. Check them for continuity (with the machine unplugged, of course) They should have continuity -- replace them if open. They should be available at www.appliancepartspros.com Also, if one or both are bad, check the dryer vent as they often are damaged by high heat due to a restricted vent pipe. The website above also has diagrams to help find the parts on the machine.
