Stopped drying - KitchenAid Dryers

    Stopped drying or is it taking too long to dry. Is there any heat at all even warm?

    There is no heat at all...not even warm and I checked the heating element coils and they appear o.k. The unit is a Sears Kenmore Elite

    I have completely cleaned the dryer vent and checked the circuit breaker and all is well. Everything is working but just no heat period. Unfortunately, I have no circuit tester probes to check for electrical continuity. Could it possibly be the Thermal Cut-Off or Thermostat switch?

    Check the thermal cutoff located on the side of your heater cannister. This is usually the problem. Hope this helps.

My Dryer won't stop drying until I open the door.


If it does this in a Timed Dry setting the timer is bad. If it does this in an Auto dry setting it could be a bad moisture sensor or a bad timer.
