Question about Dryers
KitchenAid dryer model KEYE677BWH2 was working fine. Then started where part way through the cycle, buzzer would sound, dryer would stop and then almost immediately restart. This would go on repeatedly until I stopped it. Then after a week of this behavior, it wouldn't start at all unless I fooled with the timer and would be OK for a bit. Now it will not run at all. Checked thermal fuse and both thermostats and all show continuity. What next?

That is the thermal fuse. It must read closed for the dryer to work. You can connect the two wires together to check the rest of the system, but don't run it with them crossed for normal drying. Many times this is an indication that the high limit switch is sticking or the duct is clogged with lint causing a high temp situation.
Post back if you have any questions.

There should be a timer motor on the timer. That is most likely burnt out and will cause the timer to not shut down. Just replace the timer and that will solve the problem

Buzzer comes on because the control senses that the door is
not closed and won't start the cycle. This issue is caused by door switch-latch
assembly (part#6 and part#9 in this diagram) that is bad and should be replaced.
Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
