Check the timer , the unit is shutting off when the timer is malfunctioning. If so replace the timer after trying to bypass to confirm that the gas supply is not cut off.

Heating problem


There is a thermal cutoff built into the dryer to protect from fires due to overheating. This could be activating after the dryer starts running for a while. Is it possible that the exhaust duct is clogged up with lint? Check the airflow at the dryer vent.

The dyer is working, but the dyer is not blowning any hot air


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...

Kitckenaid dyer KGYe6778WH1 Dyer won't heat


This is most likely due to the coils on the gas valve, they can become unstable and cause the symptoms you are describing. The coil kit is part number 279834 and runs about $20.00. It is replaceable from the front and not too hard to do.

Side note: the '8' in your model number is actually a 'B'

My dyer heats and tumbles, but doesn't dry


I'd check first for clogged vent hose or clogged lint filter or clogged vent flap on wall (outside).

If that's not a problem, it may be a faulty thermostat. Heating element is probably okay if it heats some of the time.

More info, let me know.
