Hello, and thank you for choosing fixya
My name is Michael . I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Normally if the dryer does not work at all then you will have to check the thermal fuse it is a white plastic thermal fuse to ensure it has continuity to ensure it is good ill post a pict of it below
It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris....
make sure it's good.
If it's good and the push to start switch is also good, then that means you have a faulty door switch or a bad timer. Check the door switch and see if it still clicks. If it still clicks then it's good, and if not then replace it. Otherwise you'll need to replace the timer.

Timer clicks on dryer but want work


A lot of times the small white fuse will melt and kill the door switch circuit on these.

I removed a bunch of junk from this one's blower housing/filter chute:

So if your door switch is fine check the thermal limit:

Rex4635eq2 electric dryer. all switches and fuses check out. Nothing comes on and the timer doesnt move or make a clicking noise when i push the start button. what do you think? Timer? Gary


You need to check your door switch and thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is located behind the back panel at about 6 oclock. If the thermal fuse is bad, you need to make sure the vent is clean.

I have a roper dryer that was working fine than all of a sudden just stopped turning. I've checked everything I know circuit breaker. Does the roper dryer have a reset button???


No, reset button on these. It may be the lid switch or the thermal fuse. This is what I find most of the time. Check out the diagram on apwagner.com and you'll see the parts locations. Oh, if it's not the thermal fuse of the lid switch it may be the timer. I've seen this a couple of times.

If the thermal fuse is ok then the door switch or door switch actuator maybe.

Roper dryer


ROPER DRYERS ARE MADE BY WHIRLPOOL. ON ALL CURRENT DRYERS, THERE IS A THERMAL FUSE THAT WILL
DISABLE A DRYER IF AN OVERHEATING PROBLEM OCCURS. THE THERMAL FUSE IS GENERALLY A SMALL WHITE ITEM FOUND IN THE REAR OF THE MACHINE, DOWN
ON THE EXHAUST DUCT BEHIND THE BACK PANEL. THERE ARE TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A METER TO CHECK IT, FIND SOMETHING THAT IS INSULATED
ELECTRICALLY TO SHORT THE TWO WIRES TOGETHER.
IF THE THERMAL FUSE IS BAD, THE DRYER WILL RUN WITH THE TWO WIRES SHORTED TOGETHER. REPLACE THE THERMAL FUSE. ALSO, CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE DOOR SWITCH LEVER ISN'T BROKEN OFF. IT IS LOCATED IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE OPENING OF THE DRYER WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR. THE DOOR SHOULD
PUSH IT BACKWARDS WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR.
TRY PUSHING IT WITH YOUR FINGER. YOU SHOULD HEAR IT CLICK. IF NOT, REPLACE THE DOOR SWITCH.

EITHER PART SHOULDN'T COST MORE THAN 30 DOLLARS.
