THE FIRST THING TO CHECK IS YOUR POWER. THE OUTLET HAS TWO ANGLED HOLES THAT SHOULD TOTAL 240VOLTS ACROSS THEM. THE L SHAPED HOLE IS THE GROUND AND THERE SHOULD BE 120VOLTS FROM EACH ANGLED HOLE TO THE L SHAPED HOLE. THE DRYER'S MOTOR ONLY RUNS ON 120 VOLTS ( FROM ONE ANLGLED HOLE TO THE L SHAPED HOLE). THE HEATING ELEMENT CIRCUIT RUNS FROM ONE ANGLED HOLE TO THE OTHER(240VOLTS)
THE DRYER WILL RUN BUT NOT HEAT WITH ONE SIDE OF THE CIRCUIT BREAKER TRIPPED.

IF POWER IS O.K., THE NEXT THING TO DO IS PULL THE BACK PANEL OFF OF THE DRYER. THE HEAT ELEMENT IS IN A BOX ON THE RIGHT SIDE WITH TWO RED WIRES GOING DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF IT. IF YOU HAVE A METER, CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO THE BOTTOM OF THE HEATER. IF YOU HAVE
240VOLTS THERE, THE HEATER IS BAD. IF NOT, THE ROUND ITEM NEAR THE BOTTOM IS A HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT. IF YOU HAVE 240VOLTS AT THE TWO TERMINALS ON THE THERMOSTAT, IT IS BAD. PART #
279769 COMES WITH THE HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT AND THE THERMAL FUSE FOUND AT THE TOP OF THE HEATER ASSEMBLY. CHECK THE THERMAL FUSE THE SAME WAY.
IF IT IS BAD, YOU WILL SEE 240VOLTS ACROSS IT.

IF ALL THOSE COMPONENTS ARE GOOD, IT COULD BE THE TIMER, TEMP SELECTOR SWITCH, OR THE MOTOR'S CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH. YOU WOULD HAVE TO READ THE WIRING DIAGRAM INSIDE THE CONTROL PANEL TO CHECK THOSE ITEMS.

Check the dryer vent pipe where it goes through your outside wall.If they get clogged up with to much lint the dryer will not vent properly and allow the air to circulate.This causes the sensor in your dryer to give false readings and will not allow the dryer to work properly trhe poutsiodevent must be cleared every once in a while when you feel the dryer air flowing rapidly through the vent outside,this should resolve your problem

Hi, more then likely it will fall to the lint hose. You can pull the dryer out and take the hose off to get it out, or leave it as its not going to do any damage.

Check your heating element and also the high pressure switch which is located on the metal part behind the panel on the back of the unit where the vent hose connects sounds like your unit is over heating

I believe a Kitchenaid with a "J" in the second position of the serial number would have been manufactured in 1999.

if its not producing lint then more than likely that it has a hole in a inner pipe and the lint is going inside your drum take the back off with the machine un-plugged and check if lint is inside then clear it out has this can set afire then find were it is coming from u can do this 2ways look for the hole or plug back in and start it if u will notice were it is coming from within a few minutes

It’s likely caused by a fan. Air circulation fans usually only run when the door is closed or the door switch is depressed. The fan blade could be hitting some built up ice or maybe it needs replacing.
