    no not the door switch, when we connect the screwdriver to the prongs on the starter switch and ground it to the metal and have the door closed it runs, when we open the door it stops, it has something to do with the start switch, we replaced the start switch today and the same thing happened, could it be a bad wire, and someone told me to replace the start switch with a toggle switch and that would work, how accurate is that

    no it's not the door switch, when we replaced the start switch and it still didn't work, we connected the prongs to the start switch with a screwdriver and grounded it to the metal of the dryer closed the door and it ran, when we opened the door it stoped, so we know it's not the door. but don't understand y when you connect the prongs to metal iwth a screwdriver and ground it it will work

Rather then guessing as to what the problem is learn to test ! Check the electrical circuit , hook up a fuel pressure gauge , use a spark tester to see if it has spark . Do you like buying parts you don't need ? Other wise your better off having a qualified repair shop check it out .

Dryer will not turn off when I open the door. As the light will not come on, I believe the problem is the switch on the door. The door switch assembly can be ordered from Roper, but I cannot find a...

Good day,
Sounds like the door switch. Easy repair. Remove the lint filter.
Remove the 2 screws under the lint filter opening. With a screw driver, insert it between the lid and front panel on one side at a time. Pop that end up and then do the other side.
Lift the lid up and away from you.
You will see the switch. Replacing it is a pure nuts and bolts operation. Just make sure you mark the wires before removing the old switch.
The kit (It's a Whirlpool product) should be available at any decent sized appliance parts house.

Roper washer lid switch is burnt. how to get to it? already have taken the two small screws out. The switch is accessable now. But how to change it ?

If it is soldered in, just unplug washer, cut wires at switch, solder on or use **** connectors to attach new switch. Be sure to use heat shrink tubing over new connections, do NOT just use elec tape...put shrink tubing on over the wires before connecting then slide over connection afterward, use a lighter or hair dryer/heat gun to shrink completely so as to form fit over new splice, this will prevent shorting against chassis. You can get both the tubing and connectors from Radio Shack.
