Re: My dryer keeps shutting off, it is a Roper.
The motor is getting hot and shuuting down on overload. Checak see it the drum turns freely. If it does then motor replacement is imminent.To get int the dryer you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter
housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top. Remove the screws
holding the front panel on. VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch
before pulling forward or the panel clips will break! Some models have
a panel on bottom. If they do then this panel must come off first. Then
you remove the door springs and back off the screws holding down the
bottom of the door panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top
to get the panel out of your way. Get the idler loose and remove the drum. Oil the wheels and idler and check the drum glides. Clean out the dryer. Sometimes you can oil the motor but it is tricky. Cheaper than a new motor though. Since yours does run a little it is a prime candidate for a little R&R. Drill out the endbells with an 8th inch drill bit. Careful not to hit the shaft. The manufacturer does not supply oil orts so you must make some. Get some high temp resistant HVAC zoomoil and refill the cotton wells on both sides. Work the motor till it turns freely. Good luck.

I see your dryer buzzer will only go off if the door is open. ... Dryer #11079622800: End of cycle buzzer won't stop buzzing after cycle is complete. ... sears kenmore dryerwhen dry cycle is done buzzer keeps buzzing. will not turn off unless you ...
bad timer at the perm press point? timers have points in them like the older cars used to have in the distributors, my point is them sometimes burn out at certain parts of the cycle and tend to stick at that point when reached, I' rebuilt a few timers it can be done but its a headache somewhat, but I saved almost 200 bucks well worth it, by the way a lot of lint is bad clean it out, but it will not keep dryer running in fact it will burn out thermal shutoff and shut down dryer. there is also a slight chance the cycling thermostat or hi-lo thermostat is bad, one cycles the heat and when it gets to hot it shuts it down but if it is stuck it can keep the machine on continually. but its a rarity AND LAST BUT NOT LEASTLY u may have a bad control board?
I understand that your Frigidaire dryer door keeps popping open during the cycle. I suggest making sure that the door has been completely closed before starting the cycle. If this is done, and the door is still popping open, there might be something going on with the door latch. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why the door keeps opening mid-cycle. Hope this is helpful.
Remove all duct work connected to this dryer. Clean thoroughly. You will find amass of lint inside of it causing your problem. If not the moister sensor is not working properly and needs to be replaced.
I do hope you will find a clogged vent tube for it is easier to clean the tube than to replace the sensor. The sensor is a fail safe part. It keeps the dryer from catching on fire when the lint tube is clogged up
take off the vent line from the back of the dryer,if it runs fine your vent line is blocked or the outside vent where the flapper opens might have a cage on it to keep animals out of the line,it keeps the animals out but it's a lint trap.if you have a long run use a leaf blower and blow out the vent line,if that's ok check the t-stats on the heater box,
