Question about KitchenAid KEYS850LQ Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kitchen aid electric dryer won't start. The door is securely closed and the light switch turns the light off and on. When you cycle the timer all the way around, the start switch clicks when depressed, nothing happens and repeated pressing of the start button does not click until you cycle the timer all the way around again.

Won't start


Is door securely shut? Safety switch could be preventing start. Might try unplugging for about 1 min, then plug back in and try. On some models, this will allow circuit to reset. Good luck!

Lights come on, press start and nothing ..


Start Switch is bad, When they go out it leave's a open circuit and all light will come on but no action.
After the circuit is closed then it tells the dryer to start cause the circuit activates both the timer and the motor.

Good Luck

The reasons can be a fault on the program controller unit but as the door does not close the program also will not move further. This must be the clue to the fault. Remove and check the lock and the settings. manually close the door with force and see if the program cycle starts, if not check the door switch and the control panel. Also check for output when the timer counts down. If not the controller unit must be checked for possible problems.

I have a Kitchen Aid range model KGST307GBS0. The


The door light switch was broken (upper right face of oven). The door switch is automatically activated when the door is opened to turn on the oven light. When the door is closed the switch is depressed to turn off the light. It seems the switch position is detected by the oven and if it is in the open position it will not allow the oven to function properly (reach temperature or allow the cleaning cycle to run). I temporarily locked the broken switch in the closed position, which allows the oven to function. A new switch was ordered for replacement.

You have a bad thermal fuse , located on the blower box . A small white plastic piece with 2 wires going to it . May have to remove the front panel to access it . Usually caused by kinked vent hose or clogged vent .

Whirl pool dryer LEC9000PW0 will not turn on


Has a household fuse blown or has a circuit breaker tripped?
There may be 2 household fuses or circuit breakers for the dryer. Make sure both fuses are intact and tight, or that both circuit breakers have not tripped. Replace the fuse(s) or reset the circuit breaker(s). If the problem continues, call an electrician.
Is the correct power supply available? (Electric dryers only)
Electric dryers require 240-volt power supply. Check with a qualified electrician.
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
Your dryer door may not be fully closed. It may look shut, but may not be latched. Push on the door to engage the latch or latches. Some models have an upper and lower latch. Both latches must be secure for the dryer to run.
Was the Start, Push to Start or Hold to Start button firmly pressed?
Large loads may require the Start, Push to Start, or Hold to Start button to be pressed and held for two to five seconds.
Is the Cycle Control knob set on a Sensor Dry or Timed Dry cycle? (on some models)
The Cycle Control knob must be set in a Automatic Dry or AccudryTM or Timed Dry cycle. The dryer will not start if set on the Wrinkle ShieldTM option.
Is Controls Locked status light on? (on some models)
Press and hold the Cycle Signal button for three seconds. This will turn off the Controls Locked feature.
Did you recently install a power supply cord on the dryer? (Electric dryers only)
The power supply cord may be incorrectly installed. If the power cord is incorrectly installed, the dryer may not start or heat. Review the Installation Instructions to check that the power supply cord is properly installed.
