SOURCE: Kitchenaid KGYS750LQ Drying very slowly

Fixed myself after talk with parts counter guy. One of the gas valve coils fails when they warm up. Repair kit comes with both.
1.) Unplug dryer. 2.) Remove dryer front panel. 3.) Remove the two screws on the coil hold down bracket. 4.) Slide one up and off. Then the other. Don't mix them up, one has two wires in slide connector, the other has three. 5.) Reinstall coil hold down bracket and front panel.
Fixed my problem. My cost was $17.00+tax. My part #279834.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: dryer heats up but clothes not getting dry after several cycles

Hi, First thing you want to check is the 4" vent that goes to the outside. Make sure that it is clear of lint and that it is no pinched or kinked at all. Is this electric or gas dryer and what model is it?

SOURCE: dryer working but no heat

Your dryer has two separate fuses, one to turn the drum, and one to heat it. It sounds like you have a broken fuse. Unless this is a new installation, then you need to make sure you have the proper electric cord attached. If it's mistakenly connected with a range cord, it won't supply enough power to the dryer.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Gas Dryer will not heat. Model

Sound like the therm switch under back cover. They are small round and silver with wire on each side, also one is white around 2 inches long with wire attached to each side. check with a tester to see if good, if not jump from one side of wire to other, plug dryer back in and turn on, if it works change switch, this should solve your problem, cheap easy fix.

Kitchen aid dryer Partial drying the cloth


First you should make sure the exhaust vent and ducting and lint trap is not clogged or restricted, birds/insect nests, or lint build up. If the dryer is heating up it is most likely an airflow issue.

KGYS850LT / KGYS850LE / KGYS850LQ Gas Dryer: The drier is working fine just no heat?...


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...

Dryer continues to heat when door is open


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.

Good Luck

Drying is not heating up.


try replacing thermal fuse. its cheaper than the heater element. this fuse blows when there is restricted air flow over the heating element. meaning clogged vent. you can ohm out this fuse. fuse is located at top left of heater duct with two wire leads going towards it. if its ok then remove heating element and look at coils. usually you can see one broke

Dryer heats, tumbles clothes, blows air out exhause vent, but wont dry clothes


what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know
