Question about KitchenAid KEHS02RMT Electric Dryer

1 Answer

YKEHSO2RWHO starts o.k. but stop within a few minutes

YKEHSO2RWHO starts fine with auto or manual but stops within 4 minutes or shorter. Thermister is new, Thermal fuse O.K., Thermal cut-off ok, high-limit thermostat o.k, passes all the diagnostic tests.

Run only air dry mode, dryer behaves the same. Starts then stop within 2 minutes.

Is this the control board?

    The moisture sensor is just fine. It passed the moisture sensor factory test.

    I have a kitchenAid dryer model YKEHS02RMT1 just
    about 2 years. (it was brand new when I bought it.)
    I tested this thermal fuse and it is still
    I just replace the thermister even though the old
    one is still O.K.
    I ran the diagnostic tests that came with the
    trouble shoot sheet, all the tests are passed.

    The problem that I am having is that the dryer
    would stop voluntary in around 2 or 4 minutes in either auto or manual

    When it stops, the symptons are :
    1) The front door open
    2) the remain timer indicator flashing
    3) no sound

    I also noticed that, the front door would
    automatically opens when the dryer is in idle when the inside the dryer is still

    Would you have any idea why the door automatical
    open by itself? Does the controller control the opening of the

    Thank you in advance,

That dryer has a moisture sensor probably is not sensing moisture

Diesel engine runs then stops then runs stops every few minutes

Mate I use to drive a freightliner and it cut out on me one day, I eventually got it started but cut out again after about 5 minutes, I rang a mechanic to come out and he found a heat sensor wire came off the radiator and that caused the motor to cut out... Hope I haven't wasted your time.......

Convection oven shuts off after a minute when trying to bake. Does this during Compubake also.. Does not preheat

Possibly a bad oven temp sensor. If the uinit doesnt read a temperature it will shut down to prevent a fire or over heating. The temp sensor is a thermister A temperature variable resistor that changes value as the temp changes. so If the main board doesnt get a response within a vertain resistance range it shuts things down. Sometimes since those parts are in the actual cooking area and subject to the heat and steam from cooking they can rust and break, or just get old and break. Or slam the door and break, you get the idea!!

After washer runs for a few minutes it stops and runs agains, stops and runs again with stop and start intervals getting shorter and never finishes cycle. Seems it's unable to spin continuously.

there are usualy sensors for the spin so that the drum is balanced properly if one of the sensors is faulty it will not spin or if the wate is not draining aswell so check the owners manual to see if there are any tests for he sensors that can be run to give you a code for the fault
