I have a roper and I will bet its your heating element. Pry the top up with a screwdriver (pops up) and you will see the element on the back of the dryer. Take it out and it will have a break in it.

I have a Roper RED4640YQ1 dryer and it will not advance to the cool down cycle on any setting. The dryer completely shuts off as if the cycle was over. I've replaced the thermal fuse, nothing changed.


Not familiar with the Roper unit but most dryers have TWO thermal sensors.
One to keep check of the Drum temperature and one in the coil chambers to regulate the coil temperature
