    ignightor problem--what teels the ignightor to start to work

  • Anonymous Jan 12, 2008

    I am having the same problem this morning with a Kitchenaid model # kgys677eq1.



    Drum turns but no heat. Gas supply is on. Does this unit have a pilot light or an ignitor? I don't think it has a pilot light. Where would you buy a new ignitor or how to troubleshoot this problem?

    I have a kitchen aid gas dryer, it worked fine yesterday, but the pilot light went out and I can't figure out how to light it, I can't seem to fine a push button to hold down to start it.

    Thanks for any help.

    I have the same problem as the person above....in regards to model # KGYS677EQ1....
    I have checked the ignition fuse - which is brand new,
    I have taken out both coils and had them tested - they are good

    my vent is brand new so that is not clogged....

    So what else can I check? The dryer runs heats up for the first few minutes but then must lose heat because my clothes come out chilled and partially dry - jeans take 2 cycles.
    Please help me

Gas dryer does not dry in "timed Dry" setting


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Our Kitchen Aid Gas dryer is heating, but not drying the clothes. Can this be fixed?


Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

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.

Everything works but no heat to drying clothes. Gas is turned on and every so often the clothes are kinda warm, but minimum 2 dry cycles to get stuff dry


i would check my exhaust vent here, make sure you have good airflow
let it stand for a while, and start it up let run
are you getting any heat, put you hand tword the back
if you getting dry by very low heat, i would suspect you gas coils, two bullets on the top of the gas valve

Hi I am trying to clean my drain unsder my washer. I do not know how to pull the cover off.?? It appears I need special alan wrenchs for two little screws..?? any ideas??


Though the idea of repairing a clothes dryer can be pretty intimidating, the truth is that some types of repairs are surprisingly easy. Yes, dryers appear to be built like huge, impervious metal boxes, but they are typically pretty easy to open and relatively simple to fix.


As shown at How Clothes Dryers Works, a clothes dryer has a motor that turns a big drum containing the clothes, a heat source for blowing warm air into the drum to dry the clothes, and controls for operating the motor and heat source.
Some dryers have an electric element to do the heating while others utilize a gas flame; the latter must be vented.
Clothes dryer problems generally occur because the heat source doesn't heat properly or the motor fails to turn the drum.
If a gas dryer doesn't dry properly, the first thing to check is the pilot light or igniter--it may not be lighting the burner. The second thing to check is the dryer's vent-if it is clogged with lint, the heating system won't work properly.

Pay attention to basic safety measures when working on a dryer. Always unplug the dryer, and turn off the gas supply to a gas dryer at the appliance shutoff valve.
As with most appliances, maintenance will keep your dryer purring. Clean the lint trap after every load, and clean the vent system once a year.
