The door switch is likely stuck or jammed by some piece of material or lint build-up. you need to locate the switch, clear the debris away and make sure that the door pin is the only thing that pushes it in.

This caused by one of two possible things. Either you have poor air flow, or a clogged vent preventing air from flowing freely and therefor making the dryer short cycle, which in turn will take you two or three times to dry yor clothes, or the heating element has gone bad, burnt in half and is making contact with the case to provide it just enough power to barely heat. The second thing is a very rare occurance. I would turn the dryer on, find out where the air vents out to, and with the dryer running, go to where it vents and check to see if there is a strong flow of air. 9 times out of 10 that is going to be your problem. Another way to check air flow is to just pull the vent off the back and let the dryer run and see if your clothes dry faster. If you do it that way and they still take a long time to dry, then you'll probably need to replace the heating element

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

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.

Machine thinks door is open and won't run a cycle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


There is a catch latch on your dryer door and that may be softening up when the dryer gets warm and the clothes tumbling against the door is enough to push the door out to the point that it thinks it is open. Try this exersize... The next time you wash clothes place a chair sideways against the doon with your clothes basket on it and see it it completes the cycle If it does then your door latch and actuating arm / post need replaced.

I am trying to figure out the capacity on my Kitchen Aid dryer, model KEYS677EQ1.


dear customer the capacity for a dryer is mostly comen sense for example if you dry blankets they are farly heavy you can put as much as you like in your dryer but dont forget that wet cloth is heavy on your dryer or wet jeans it will work no problem but on the long run your dryer will wear out faster because of the weight normal clothe what goes in the washing machine goes in the dryer thankyou have a great day from gilles
