Question about Roper RGX4634KQ Gas Dryer

1 Answer

I still need instructions on how to remove the motor

My Roper RGX4634KQ Gas Dryer hums when I press the start button. I suspect the motor has gone bad. Before I spend $100 on a new motor, is there anything else that could be causing the dryer to do this?
How do I remove the motor?

I moved and cannot locate the pilot/ignition source on the dryer to relight it.


It's been many, many years since dryers had pilot lights. Look for an igniter that may have gone out. It should be behind a service door.

The dryer is humming but not spinning when i removed the top cover i see the belt in the middle of the drum. Do you know where it supposed to go?


is belt disconnected? Is belt broken? Will dryer rotate manually? if so ,

I suspect that the belt broke. order a new belt Home depot has a good parts service or try other local appliance places. You will have to disconnect power first, Remove front panel to access drum Dont forget to unplug door switch there should be a plug front top right, in the rear on the bottom there is a motor and an idler/tensioner. install the new belt and under tensioner Yes the path will seem awkward and re assemble. Also now is the time to vacuum lint out
