KEHS01PMT2 Dryer Won't Turn On

I have a KitchenAid KEHS01PMT2 dryer which was working fine until one day it wouldn't turn on. I unplugged it for a day or so and after replugging, it worked again for only a few hours before it wouldn't turn on again. It seems that after I unplug it for a while and replug it back again (not right away), it turns on again, but eventually it stops turning on and I have to go back unplugging it for some time in order for it to turn on. Any ideas of what part could be causing this issue? I never touched the breaker to that outlet. Thank you for your response.

SOURCE: Kenmore dryer

IF THE DRYER COMES ON BY ITSELF WHEN THE TIMER IS SET AND THE DOOR IS CLOSED, THE PUSH TO START SWITCH IS SHORTED. THIS WILL CAUSE THE END OF CYCLE SIGNAL TO BUZZ WHEN THE TIMER IS IN THE OFF POSITION(END OF CYCLE).UNPLUG THE DRYER, REMOVE THE BACK PANEL OF THE CONSOLE, AND REMOVE ONE WIRE FROM THE PUSH TO START SWITCH. ISOLATE IT SO IT ISN'T TOUCHING ANYTHING AND PLUG THE DRYER BACK IN. SET THE TIMER AND CLOSE THE DOOR. IF IT DOESN'T START UP OR BUZZ, UNPLUG THE DRYER AND REATTACH THE WIRE. PLUG THE DRYER BACK IN AND SEE IF IT STARTS BY ITSELF. IF IT DOES, THE PUSH TO START SWITCH IS SHORTED AND WILL NEED REPLACED.

SOURCE: dryer won't turn on - interior light on

It sounds like you have either a broken drum belt or a door switch that isn't working. If the dryer belt breaks, the drum will not turn, but you will probably still hear the motor running. I don't think your model has a broken belt switch that disables the motor (at least I couldn't find one). You didn't mention anything about hearing a motor running, either. The likely cause, then. would be a door switch. If the switch was not making contact when the door was closed, it would give the very same symptoms you described. Have you tried pushing on the switch with the door open to see if the drum light goes out? If the light DOES go out, we probably have a primary power problem to the drive motor. If the light DOES NOT go out, replace the door switch. You can find the part at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and you can locate the switch under the "Cabinet Parts" heading as item number 10 (part #3406107). Let me know how you diagnose this and get back to me. If it is the switch, I can give you steps on how to replace it. If its not, then we'll have to troubleshoot a little further. I'm trying the simple approach first before attempting to disassemble the dryer. I hope this helps you.

Kitchenaid gas dryer won't ignite and heat. Everything else seems to work fine -- drum rotates, timer works, just no heat. Model# KGYL517BWH1.


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Our 8 year old kenmore dryer won't do anything when you press the start button. We don't hear even a hum. It worked one day and then just wouldn't start the next day. We checked the fuse box...


Here is a good link for basic troubleshooting... But 10 to one the culprit is a thermal fuse or thermal cut off.... they are usually pretty cheap and easy to replace....

http://www.partselect.com/dryer+dryer-wont-start+repair.htm

One final note on these: if you find your thermal fuse\cut off (or element) open, before replacing it, be sure to check the airflow out your dryer's vent system. Even though these devices do 'wear out' with age, poor airflow's the #1 cause of failure of these devices, and if your vent's partially clogged, a new thermal won't last very long, but will do its job again, and leave you 'cold' (a new element won't last long if the vent's clogged, either).
