Question about KitchenAid KGYS850LT Gas Dryer
My kitchenaid dryer will stop tumbling when I open the door but the heat element stays on. If I move the timer to OFF then everything stops with door open or closed.
The model number you put up is for a gas dryer, but you said element, so I'm assuming it is actually electric.
If this is in fact an electric dryer, you most likely have a heating element that has shorted to the case. There is a small chance that something else in that circuit has shorted to ground but I doubt it.
If this actually is a gas dryer, please discontinue use immediately and get a licensed tech over there to look at it.
