Video test 3387134

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.

SOURCE: 2 to 3 cycles to fully dry clothes

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

SOURCE: It takes at least 2 60 minute cycles to dry clothes. Not even 2 years old yet. Not a new problem has always been this way. What is the deal.

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.

The once-quality name has been a division of Whirlpool for years so you can expect the customarily lousy customer service from KitchenAid now that Whirlpool buyers have had for years. I can normally find about any manual on line but your model is an exception. You might try again through the KitchenAid website, if you have no luck, email them from there to see if they will respond.

There are a few possible issues you will need a quarter inch nut driver and and ohm meter to figure out the problem. First step remove the back panel. Once your back there to ohm anything out you have to remove one wire from the device your testing. You will have a skinny white thermal fuse with two wires going to it if that has no continuity its bad replace that (3392619) and the cycle therm next to it w/ 4 wires (3387134) and check your venting because the problem occured due to over heating. The next thing is you thermal fuse located at the top of the heater housing that comes in a kit with the hi limit thermostat which will probably requere some rewiring. The last thing to check would be your heating element which is a (279827) fairly expensive but easy to replace. Also before you replace anything make sure you are getting true 240v to the dryer.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Kitchen Aid Electric Dryer Model # KEYE678BALO, won't start.


This is most often caused by a bad thermal fuse or thermostat high limit cutout. Check them for continuity (with the machine unplugged, of course) They should have continuity -- replace them if open. They should be available at www.appliancepartspros.com Also, if one or both are bad, check the dryer vent as they often are damaged by high heat due to a restricted vent pipe. The website above also has diagrams to help find the parts on the machine.

Control Lock light is on and nothing works on my stovetop


Hi. Research your stovetop on the kitchenaid website. You should be able to download a user manual for your model. The manual should tell you how to reset the lock. If a manual is not available, try disconnecting the power supply to the stove. This might clear the memory of the stove. Good luck. ricardok45
