Question about KitchenAid KGYS850LT Gas Dryer

Kitchenaid KGYS750LQ Drying very slowly

My gas dryer has been drying cloths very slowly for a week now.  I checked the vent the blower and they are both functioning fine.  I have tried high medium and low heat settings and the problem still exists heres what I see:

When in the dryer turns on I hear the gas valve/relay click open and I hear the gas fire.  The back of the dryer begins to heat but the gas quickly turns off.  Some time later the cycle repeats itself and the gas will turn on the dryer heats up a bit and it turns off.  I would say it is not making it anywheres near the 155°F gas shut off point in the dryer when the gas turns off.  Any idea what this amy be?

Fixed myself after talk with parts counter guy. One of the gas valve coils fails when they warm up. Repair kit comes with both.
1.) Unplug dryer. 2.) Remove dryer front panel. 3.) Remove the two screws on the coil hold down bracket. 4.) Slide one up and off. Then the other. Don't mix them up, one has two wires in slide connector, the other has three. 5.) Reinstall coil hold down bracket and front panel.
Fixed my problem. My cost was $17.00+tax. My part #279834.

Take the back panel off, and look for a small white piece, that is an inch and a half long, and a half inch wide, with 2 wires coming to it. Make sure the dryer is unplugged when you do this. Take the two wires off, and put them together, and put a little tape around them. Then plug the conected wires into one of the conectors were you took the two wires off of, plug the dryer in and turn the dryer on, if it works, that part is a thermal fuse. Replace it.
( it may take 30 sec to a minute for the gas to ignite)

Kitchen aid dryer Partial drying the cloth


First you should make sure the exhaust vent and ducting and lint trap is not clogged or restricted, birds/insect nests, or lint build up. If the dryer is heating up it is most likely an airflow issue.

Clothes Not Drying well


HI, Check the following to address this issue further.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.

FRIDGIDAIRE GAS DRYER MODEL # GLGR642AS2 IS NOT DRYING CLOTHES BUT GAS IS IGNITING. THANK YOU. DON


Hi Don,
So let me get this straight, you are getting heat from the gas burner and the drum rotates but your clothes remain wet? You can check a few basic things to identify where the problem lies.. First off, have you checked the lint trap and cleaned it? Secondly, have you checked your vent system ( meaning : are you sure it is not clogged anywhere in the duct or at the end where it exits outside? If that's OK.. when your system is drying clothes.. do you get hot air flow at the end of that duct? If not, your blower may not be working ..You need to move that hot air out of the tub for the system to dry. Heat, Motion to move clothes, air flow from the blower and an unimpeded path via the vent duct to outside.. Hope one of these things to check gets you going. Regards...
