Kitchenaid prestige dryer will not tumble

Set the timer, close the door and push the button to start the dryer and it will not heat or tumble. I can hear the time clicking and the light comes on in the dryer.

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

Push start button the dryer will tumble, but immediately stops


there is a relay that latches on when you push the start button .. that relay is released by the "door open" switch .. i would suspect that the "door open" switch is bad .. thats usually a button that is pushed in when the door is closed ..

Won't run


If "won't run" meaning; "does not tumble/spin" this can be a couple things;

1. Defective Drive Belt (Likely): Broken or jammed (not properly attached to motor/pulley). Nothing will happen when pressing start; unit will not heat or rotate/tumble. "Normal ware and tear"

2. Defective Door Switch (Very likely) - Very common due to constant "slamming" of door. The door switch enables power to be passed through-out machine when door closes for safety purposes. Switch located at door area and can be tested for continuity. "Nothing will happen when pressing start; unit will not heat or tumble/turn". * Fairly easy to replace; two mounting screws.

3. Defective/Jammed Motor (Rare, but possible): You may hear a "humming noise" and burning smell. Also, excessive lint in blower housing may jam the motor from rotating. "Does not come on; does not tumble/turn"

Remember to disconnect power from unit before servicing.

When you open the door to check if the clothes are dry, the dryer keeps tumbling even with the door open.


This is commonly caused by a door switch that is shorted. The switch is located in the door frame opening and is activated (or closed) by a push button when the door is closed. This will enable the drive motor and heating circuits when the start button is pushed. When the door is opened, the switch no longer makes contact and the drive motor and heating circuits shut off. I would recommend checking to see if the push button the switch is just stuck (pushed in). You may have to replace the switch to correct the problem. If you would post your COMPLETE model number (located somewhere around the door opening) I can look to see how this switch is installed and any parts necessary to replace it. i hope this helps you.
