Gas Dryer not drying efficiently

Model: Kitchen Aid KGYS700JQ0

Dryer looks to be working properly and vent is not blocked. However, the unit is not drying medium to large loads even after a full 70 minuite cycle. I can hear the gas flame turning on and can feal heat inside if I open the door. Don't know if this be a fan issue or a problem with the heater.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

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.

    To test the thermostats or fuse, set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. You should get a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, the thermostats should have a reading of zero. When the thermostats are heated to their limit temperature, they should switch off and you should get a reading of infinity. replace if the test is unsuccessful.

First thing to do is vacuum out all lint from dryer, unplug, remove back and vacuum all lint out of it, also where vent hooks up. Then clean out duct work from inside of home to where it exits. Excess lint holds moister and causes dryer not to dry.

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

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.

My kitchen aid dryer does does not reach the higher temperatures it used to--it takes a much longer time to dry clothes.-even when set at "high"


Please clean the entire vent system from the dryer to the outside.
Make sure the vent is not smashed behind the dryer.

Long time to dry complaints are usually due to restricted house exhaust vents.

To test...Remove vent from dryer and operate dryer with a wet load if the unit dries ok the vent is @ fault.
If not one stage of the heat element could be burnt out.

I have a magtag gas dryer with that heat sensor cycle. when we set dial control there it does not move. It just runs ands runs. Clothes tumble for hours before their dry. Yet if I set dial control to timed...


Hi Joy Ann,

The automatic cycle of your dryer depends on air circulating in, through and out of your dryer efficiently. If air isn't circulating properly, your timer will stall and run forever.

Timed Dry, on the other hand is independent. The timer only does what it's told to do... count down time.

So, yes. You do have a blockage in the vent to outside. When you said the "Vents are clean", I presume you mean the lint filter. That's good. It's always good to keep that clear. What I'm talking about is the four inch vent tube from the dryer to the wall. How close is the back of the dryer to the wall? If it's less than 4", the vent is crushed. Take a flashlight and look behind the dryer without moving it. See that flex hose back there connecting the dryer to the wall? If it is pinched, so is your air flow. Either pull the dryer out about 8" from the wall, or shorten the hose.

If all of that checks out OK, though.. (your flex line to the wall isn't pinched) that means that the vent in the wall is blocked somewhere. Trust me... I've seen all kinds of things block vents to the outside. Bird nests mainly, squirrel's, reptiles, rodents... they all love to build nests in the warm place <--that would be your dryer exhaust.

Recommendation: pull the dryer out at LEAST 8" from the wall and see if that helps. If not, your Home's internal dryer vent should be professionally cleaned (should be done once a year for 2 story Homes).

Bottom line is this... if your dryer is heating, it's trying to do its' job. The only reason it can't is because air isn't circulating properly.

Look into it, Joy Ann... Dryer fires are serious and they are caused by blocked ventilation.

Hope this helps,
SG

The first thing to do is check the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house including the venthood make sure it is clear. Blocked airflow can increase dry time decrease efficiency.

Gas dryer not heating properly, burner ignites at start up, then not again


Please provide the brand and model number of your dryer.. However.. you state that your dryer is not heating properly and yet the burner ignites.. If you have a flame after ignition and your dryer is drying slowly, I would be inclined to look at the blower and or vent for restrictions in air flow. The heat generated by the burner will not be optimized in terms of drying clothes if you do not move that air out . Any and all restrictions to normal vent flow will make the dryer less efficient and dry times will be longer. If you are bound an determined to get into the flame sensor and thermostat logic, then please provide a brand and model number..
Hope this helps...
