Re: kitchenaid prestige dryer model keys677EQ1

I have a KItchenAid Presitge Electric Dryer; Model #YKEYS677EQO. It just shut off. I tried resarting it but all I get is a humming noise. This humming noise only lasts for about a couple of seconds then I get nothing. The barrel can be turned manually.

I have a kitchenaid prestige gas clothes dryer. Model #KGYS677EQ1 . It is producing no heat at all, but it is tumbling fine. Can you please help me figure out the problem?

It could be a few things, but the most common is the heating element is burned out. Un-plug the dryer. Remove the cover to expose the wires attached to the heating element. Take a Ohm meter to test the heating element after the wires are un-plugged.

Dryer stops tumbling, but heating element stays on

Usually when an electric dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat

Dryer stops before clothes are dry...have to wait a few minutes before it will start again but only stays running for a short time.

if the dryer is running and then the motor stops when it gets hot it sounds like you have a bad motor.when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer and vent line?also i need the model number,on some kenmore dryers they have even heat that can cause this to happen if it's in your machine the timer will count down faster than normal and shut down ,or you could have a bad thermister so send the model number and i can check it out for you.

I am trying to figure out the capacity on my Kitchen Aid dryer, model KEYS677EQ1.

dear customer the capacity for a dryer is mostly comen sense for example if you dry blankets they are farly heavy you can put as much as you like in your dryer but dont forget that wet cloth is heavy on your dryer or wet jeans it will work no problem but on the long run your dryer will wear out faster because of the weight normal clothe what goes in the washing machine goes in the dryer thankyou have a great day from gilles

Kitchenaid dryer

Yank the filter out the top.
remove the 2 phillips screws in that filter housing on the top of the machine so you can pop the spring clips and get the top up. Remove the front and get the drum out. Oil the wheels and idler and rerout the belt using this PIC.

TDC 30 Dryer starts but after 5 mins "clicks and stops"

its probably the relay (brown plastic box at the front under lid)! Symptoms are usually.... the dryer will go for a few minutes then shut down.... then you have to wait for it to start
