Kitchen Aid Dryer Gas/Front Loading Model KGYS750JQ1

Dryer was working fine yesterday. Today, it won't tumble.... I select a temperature (e.g., High) press start and it makes a noise, but the drum doesn't spin. Wondering if it may be a fuse, or thermostat (easy to replace I hope) or if it is a mechanical problem.

thanks

Does the noise stop when you let off the start button? If so you either have a bad motor or something has gotten into the blower keeping it from turning. If the motor is running but drum not turning, you have a broken belt. Please post the complete model number from the dryer and I will try to help you with diagnosing and repairing the problem.
Thanks/Mike

    Unplug the dryer. Pull out the lint filter and remove the screws holding the top to the air duct. Look between the top and the front panel. There are two clips holding the top down, one about 3" in from each end. you can slip a screwdriver in and pop the top up, The top will hinge back. Unplug the door switch. Remove the two screws that hold the front panel to the cabinet. The panel will lift off clips that hold it at the bottom. You now have access to the belt.

    You can view parts diagrams and lists here.

    Just enter your model number. I find it is easier to see the pictures better if I let the diagram load, then save the picture to my computer to view it.

    Post back with any questions.

    Thanks/Mike

Hello! Yesterday we cleaned out our home dryer vents. Today the heat wil not come on in our kenmore elite dryer. It tumbles and blows cool air, just no heat. Suggestions? Thank you!


If you have a gas dryer, your problem is probably caused by the ingition panel.Generally, with a gas dryer, there is an ignition device that heats to a specific temperature and this causes the gas to ignite. When this electric ignition fails to work, the gas will not ignite and there will be no heat. I had this happen and had to call a professional. It was a simple matter of installing a new ignition device and it worked perfectly for years. I hope this helps! If it is a new dryer, check to see if this part might be covered under warranty.If this helps solve your problem, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice

We have a kitchen aid KGSA906PSS00 gas range. for the first time today the wife decided to run the self clean function. At some point through the self clean the oven shut off and the control panel died....


Sounds like my problem two days ago. I have a Kitchen Aid free standing gas oven/range model
KGRI801PWH00. I read online that the thermo-fuse might've blown. I found the thermo-fuse after removing the rear panel. It was at the top/center. Mine is T-O-D (brand) 60F24; Westinghouse #8300802. I ordered mine from appliancepartspros.com for only $34.75; arrived in 36 hrs with regular shipping!! Easy to fix, sure beats several hundred $$ to repairman.

Don't bother to call Kitchen Aid - they'll just blow you off just like the hundreds of complaints said that I found online.

Dryer not heating


  • There are two house circuits/fuses in an electric dryer's circuit.
    If one of them is tripped/blown, the drum may turn, but the heater will not operate. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the house fuse.
  • Outlet wired incorrectly.
    Have a qualified electrician verify that the supply voltage is correct.
  • Gas supply valve to a gas dryer is not open.
    Open the gas supply valve. See Installation Instructions for details.
  • LP gas supply tank is empty or there has been a utility interruption of natural gas.
    Refill or replace the LP tank. Call your natural gas utility company.
  • Dryer does not have enough air supply to support the gas burner.
    The dryer needs space around it for proper ventilation. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the dryer. See Installation Instructions for details about installing a dryer in a closet or alcove.
  • Incorrect cycle or temperature has been selected.
    If the Air Fluff cycle or temperature is selected, the dryer will tumble without heat. Each cycle ends with a Cool Down period during which the load tumbles without heat. Check the location of the indicator on the Cycle Selector knob.

Kenmore dryer help?


Sounds like motor is stalled. Remove the lint filter, look inside down toward the bottom left corner at the blower wheel. Something may be jammed in the blower wheel. If difficult to see, TURN OFF POWER TO MACHINE, remove bottom access panel. 2 to 3 screws on bottom of panel. Remove lint housing (3 to 4 screws) and inspect blower wheel for debris.
