Question about Roper RGX4634KQ Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer steaming up my house

We bought this Roper dryer and then 2 weeks later we had to have the glow plug replaced. Now the dryer works but it takes up to 2 hours to dry a normal size load. After the 1st 1/2 hour cycle I open the door and the inside of the door is damp and condensation dripping from it. And some days it steams up the windows in our house. We've only had this dryer for almost 2 months. I made sure the dryer vent is always clear and even made sure the vent going outside was free and clear and I can't figure it out.

I replaced the timer and it still dosen't work and clothes don't get dry

you have to check the igniter fisrt, if your dryer is white you have a plug at the lower left corner, remove it,turn the dryer on and look for the igniter to glow. if you see no glow after 1 minute replace the igniter. if it glow and goes off and no gas is ignited then replace the coils.

Dryer is not putting out heat. Gas is connected and working in other parts of the house near the dryer.

Check the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

If everything above is OK then the thermostat2.gif or the auto sensor is not working correctly.

I have a 6yro roper gas dryer. model : rgx5634kq2 everything works except it wont heat up ignitor is good as well as thermal fuse

Hello, If your igniter is glowing does not mean it's good, Take a look at it while it is glowing..Is it orange in color..Uneven glow? then it's bad...the igniter needs to be pulling 3.5 amps in order for a) the gas valve to open B) gas to ignite once gas valve opens. The glow should be a brillient yellow that you find hard to look at. If the igniter is bad the only other possibilty is the flame sensor. It is the gadget hooked to the side of the tube where the flame is. Using an ohms meter disconnect the 2 wires from the terminals and check for condinuity..If you have no reading (condinuity) you should replace it. Good Luck!!! If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Mike

Taking the back off the dryer towards the bottom in the center there is a white pc.of plastic about 3 inches long and 3/8" wide. Its clipped on the inside panel and has a screw securing it. It has two wires clipped to it.Thats the fuse ! I got a replacement form the local Sears parts store for about $15.00.

Roper gas dryer not heating

the glow plug (ignitor)must draw 3 amps or more to function properly if its ok check the flame sensor for continuity located on the side of the burner housing and if its ok then the gas coils on the top of the gas valve are faulty let me know if this helps

Dryer won heat timer dosen't avance

huntman, the model posted shows as a gas dryer. In the lower left side there is a square plastic peep hole. Take a putty knife and pull it off. Set the dryer to high heat and take a look in the hole. Does the ignitor glow? If it doesn't you either have a bad thermal fuse or a bad ignitor. Start with the thermal fuse. You will have to remove the back panel to get at it. I will attach a photo. You can ohm it out, or just jump the wires temp. to see if the ignitor glows. If theral fuse is good and the ignitor does glow, you probabley have a bad set of coils. These sit on the gas valve are easy to replace. The timer won't advance without the heat. Check this out back.
