Question about Dryers
Kitchen aid model KEYW977BWHO. Could not find a user manual on their website. The dryer starts and runs for about ten to fifteen seconds and then beeps about six times and shuts off for five minutes or so. My clothes aren't drying like they should. It has been taking me about 2-3 dry cycles to completely dry one load. any suggestions?
This sounds to me like the heating element is bad. You need a meter to test it. You should not attempt this if you are not comfortable with it. Unplug it and remove the front of the machine, some have kickpanels under the door that come off with little effort after two screws are removed, Others require that the top of the machine be lifted off and then the front taken off. Then you need to locate the heating element. It is mounted to the bottom of the machine. You at this point should start cleaning the unit because it is most likely covered in lint. Then you can pull out the heating element box. NOTE where the wires are connected. Then you can check to see if the heating coil is bad. You can see if it is broken or you can use a meter to test it. There are also two switches on the unit that houses the heater coil. One is a thermal fuse and the other is a thermostat., Check those too.

SOURCE: LGE59777S Not drying
There is a little sensor that tells the dryer when to heat and when not to heat. that sensor is bad. If you take the back of the dryer off you will see it. It is about the size of a half dollar and has 2 wires that plug into it. While you have it apart make sure that the dryer vent on the back of the dryer is not plugged with lint. Major cause for fires in dryers.

if the clothes are warm after the cycle then you need to make sure the vent to the outside of the house is not plugged if they are not warm then it is in the heating circuit of the dryer wether it be the element or a fuse will have to be tested. to dry clothes it takes heat and air flow if you dont have one of the two they will not dry correctly

Check the blower fan which is mounted underneath the drum on my DLE2514W front loading LG dryer. I experienced poor drying along with a loud thump at the start of each cycle. At first I thought it was a bad roller but later found that the blower fan had separated from its bracket so it was not turning with each turn of the moter but rather spinning freely.
