Do you have the part number, is so Put in (Find kitchen aid dryer Part# 111111* ) Or( Find kitchen aid dryer heating element* ). If this is a old dryer some parts are not made anymore. Any Dryer over 7 years old is no longer energy efficient. Hope This Helps.

SOURCE: cannot get front panel off

Remove the front panel by following these steps:

1. UNPLUG dryer before servicing.
2. Open lint screen and remove lint screen filter.
3. Remove the two screws at the lint screen opening.
4. The top panel with console, should lift up at this point (you may have to pull it towards you slightly if there are retaining clips holding it in place).
5. Unplug the door latch plug (small white connector plug).
6. Locate the retaining screws that hold the front panel in place. There should be one screw on each side of the cabinet interior at the upper left and right corners of the front panel.
7. With the screws and connector plugs removed, the front panel should lift up slightly, then come off.

NOTE: Note the position of the small retaining clips at the bottom left and right corners behind the front panel. These clips will insert into two slots at the bottom corners of the front panel to hold it in place when re-installing.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you still have questions, please let me know.

PS You can go to searspartdirect.com and type in the same model number you provided. There are helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can assist you. The "Top and Console" and "Cabinet" headings will help you with disassembly (if needed).

SOURCE: my keys 700gq0 Kitchen aide dryer wont heat and I

Unplug the dryer and the first thing to do is check for the presence of 220 volts at the wall outlet. If you lost one leg of the 220 volts, it is possible for your dryer to run but there will not be any heat. Once you verified there is definitely 220 volts at the wall outlet, remove the rear cover. On the lower right hand side you will see a silver canister which contains the heating element. Remove the lower two wires directly from the heating element and check this for continuity. If it is good, on the left hand side of the same canister they often install a thermal safety which may have tripped. Do the same test as with the heating element. Remove the wires and test the thermal safety for continuity. If this is good, move to the blower housing on the left side of the exhaust vent and look for a white piece of plastic which has two wires on it. Remove these two wires and check this item for continuity.

I have a kitchen aid dryer SUPERBA electric dryer. It stopped drying. still runs ok but no heat. Checket the Element . looks fine . what could be the reason.?


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.


check out this electric no heat tip...

Kitchen aid kgys750gq0 works but there is no heat


The KitchenAid KGYS750GQ0 is a gas dryer, so the solution of looking for a heating element is not helpful. There are several heat switches and a gas burner assembly (which includes a gas valve and an electric ignition), any of which could be the problem.

Kitchen aid kgys750gq0 works but there is no heat


your heat strip is possibly blown out.
This strip is located at the base of the dryer and looks like the inside of a toaster. These wires heat up your dryer to dry the clothes. If this element is burnt out the dryer will not heat. I would suggest having an appliance tech look at the dryer since some of the different types of heat strips need to have the thermal high limit switch replaced when the heat strip is replaced
