Have a look at both printer's manuals.
Often you can set for paper selection something like "automatic"
or "nearest size which fits" or "automated scaling" or "fall back
to A4" or similar stuff.
I assume the Kyocera prompts for Letter paper (watch the printer's
display) and after a timeout it discards the job because what else
could the printer do if it is set to print only on exact matching
paper except waiting infinite which would block subsequent printouts.
