Question about KitchenAid Dryers

1 Answer

WE HAVE A KITCHENAID MODEL NUMBER YKEYS700GQ0 WE BOUGHT BRAND NEW AND EVERYTHING WORKS LIKE, THE BLOWER AND HEATER BUT THE TUB WILL NOT TURN. ALL THE CONTROLS ALSO APPEAR TO BE WORKING FINE. ALSO WHAT APPEARS TO BE A WHITE ROUND WHEEL ON THE END OF A LONGER BLACK HOLDER WHICH LOOKS LIKE IT CLIPS ON SOMETHING. It came of and was sitting on the floor of the dryer when I took the back off. IT WOULD APPEAR THAT A PULLY OR BELT FITS ON IT SOMEHOW. I AM THINKING IT MIGHT BE A BELT OR BROKEN PULLY. I WAS WONDERING IF THAT IS THE CASE HOW I WOULD BE ABLE TO GET TO IT AND TAKE THE OLD ONE OFF AND PUT A NEW BELT OR PULLY ON. DO I DO IT FROM THE BACK, TOP OR FRONT? Is it the belt or pully that turns the tub? If it is a pully or belt, or a shaft that turns the tub I need to know how to take it off and how to put it back on.

That is your idler pulley which holds the tension of the belt to the motor.If you have a access panel in the back of dryer than that would be the place to install the pulley.

GFCI in primary power cord keeps going off turning off the hot tub.


This could be a number of things. First make sure your water flow is not impeded. Clean your filters or replace them check that there is no debris in the intakes or returns. There are fuses for each item from your power pack, you can unplug everything, lights, blower, pumps etc.. plug them in one at a time and when the GFCI trips that is the fuse you need to replace. Lastly, you could have a siezed motor or a bad GFCI for this you may want to call out a professional hot tub service company in your area.

I bought a brand new house and the gas water heater seems to be stuck in vacation mode.


Copy following link to troubleshoot by type of gas control valve, instructions how-to-light-water-heater, including error codes etc:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent
To reset the intellivent gas control, press and hold both arrow buttons for about 5 seconds
This water heater requires pilot flame. Look through site glass and upward (or use mirror) to see if pilot is ON and burning clear blue flame and not lazy yellow flame.
Check that gas shut-off is parallel to gas line:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Gas-water-heater-89-valve-2.jpg
Check if outlet has 120Volt, and that polarity of outlet is correct. Power vent water heaters require correct polarity: use circuit analyzer. Check if there is ground continuity between ground and manifold tube (center tube that connects between burner and gas control valve).
Scroll to top of same link to read about FV system and air intake cleaning. Must have good supply of incoming air.
Same page half way down has troubleshoot section for pressure switch testing, blower troubleshoot etc. The pressure switch and blower communicate electrically with gas control thermostat to determine when to release gas to burner where pilot ignites gas, causing poisonous combustion by-product to vent outdoors and help nature.
This model has thermopile instead of thermocouple. Basically thermopile is several thermocouples. When heated, thermopile generates enough current to run small electronic circuit inside gas control valve. This circuitry is very common in hvac units but fairly recent to water heaters. Advantage is error code troubleshoot and more optional controls, for example future response to in-home zwave remote controls and home automation
Get model number and brand from label on side of tank and post question on pro water heater forum with list of what you have tried so far.
http://www.thetankatwaterheaterrescue.com/forums/forum3/
Call plumber to bleed air out of gas line and check gas pressure.

Vacation mode hot water heater


GE is made by Rheem.
Sounds like water heater is short cycling.
Copy following link to troubleshoot by type of gas control valve, including error codes, and instructions how to replace each type of gas control valve.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent
Unforturnately Rheem does not post service manuals, and refers customers to call service technicians... so wonder where these guys get service manual... or maybe they guess at it.
However 2 year old water heater is under warranty. The date of manufacture shows on poduct label serial number. 3rd and 4th digit of serial number are year of manufacture. Parts are covered in second year. Rheem might require plumber to validate single-family residential installation.
In any case other companies post service manuals that cover same gas control valves. These manuals apply to Rheem.
Only difference between Rheem/GE and other brands is type of FV system.
If the air arrestor screen gets clogged (not likely with new heater), the intake air slows down causing vent to slow down. Same amount of gas is still being released and burned, causing combustion chamber to overheat. As a result, the TRD glass vial breaks and air intake trap door springs closed. At this point the gas control valve will usually signal error flashes indicating lockout. Shutdown is usually less problematic to homeowner than allowing too much gas to accumulate inside burner at once, causing risk of explosion. Gas appliance are dangerous without doubt.
Call plumber to check everything might be safest route, especially since low gas pressure is one possible cause of short cycling. And you will be comfortable afterwards knowing who to call and that gas appliance is check out professionally not to have defects that will cause problems down the road.

Kenmore Dishwasher 665.1383 is about 4 years old. The past 2 months it has developed a strong plastic or chemical smell. The smell has tainted brand new glasses that then have the odor when they are...


that's not the full model number,there should be four more numbers.anyway does it have a heating element in the bottom of the tub,if so feel it with your hands,a piece of plastic could of hit it and is still melting when you run it,you can try using dishwasher magic,it's a bottle that you stick in the washer,the heat opens the bottle and it cleans the machine,also what kind of soap are you using?maybe try a new brand.also make sure the heater is in the metal holders,i've seen it knocked out and it will burn a hole through the tub.

My dryer is about 7-8 years old. It has been taking longer to dry clothes for a little while now but within the last few days will not heat up. Spins fine, just no heat. Breakers are good.Any solutions?


Have you cleaned the blower vent pipes lately. Sounds like the vents may be stopped up with lint and it got too hot. Clean vents and where the fan blade is to be sure the fan can turn. I have found everything you can think of in the blower housing that would keep the fan from turning.Be sure and get the lint out they all have some. As far as the heat not working check all thermastats , the thermal fuse on blower box and thermal cutoff usely on the heater box. and the heater coil also check with an ohmeter from heater coil connections to the metal box it's in ,the coil could be grounded inside the box.
Hope this helps.

Dream Maker Hot tub - Display is blank - no #'s - flashes 4 times


Hard to say without being there. Two things to check though. First be sure the new board is the correct one. Many times parts will change and replacements will have special instructions for retrofitting.
The other thing to check is be very sure the plug on the new board lines up with the receptor. On a multi pin plug if the pins don't line up you can get just the problem you describe. I hope this helps, sorry it can't be more.
