Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Kitchenaid Superba Dryer also stopped working (3 years old)

Sounds like we have the same problem with our Kithchenaid Superba dryer (model - KEYS850LT1). It's getting power as the timer still ticks, but dryer won't work all of a sudden. It got very hot to the touch on last cycle when it quit working. It's also been taking a good while to dry clothes lately.

Is the white fuse with 2 wires coming out the one that is located on the outside of the blower housing to the right of the blower wheel?

Yes it is, you can bypass it for testing purposes only, also clean out your vent too the outside it is probably clogged that is what usually blows them out.

Gas dryer pilot light


Hello Lara. Your dryer does not have a pilot light. It uses a hot surface ignitor to ignite the gas. Unplug the dryer and cover it with a plastic sheet before fogging.

How do I relight the pilot light on an old kicthen aid superba dryer?


This isn't a dryer but it's the same idea. Follow the gas line into the dryer. Take the little cover off and you need stick matches. Watch the video to get the technique....

Hello, I have a Kitchenaid Superba mod.


Hi Todd,
First UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

Vic

Thanks

KitchenAid Dryer Timer stopped working - won't stop drying


Timers cannot be repaired. The mechanism is a spring - once it weakens, or fails - a new timer is required.

CLICK HERE for your part.

It is $83.72 USD.

Here is a Buy-it-Now eBay auction for $34.99USD & Free shipping!!
CLICK HERE

Your part number for the timer is 3976570a

A used part would have to come from an appliance store that salvaged from an abandoned washer.... and it may fail shortly anyway.
The new timer will have a warranty, and give you 10 more years of service.
Well worth it.

KitchenAid Superba dryer(electric) will not run. I have power. All I hear is what sounds like the timer running.


You probably have a bad thermal fuse, small white two teminal fuse on the blower housing.
