Question about Roper REX4634KQ Electric Dryer
I have to keep turning the dryer back on it keeps shutting off during the cycle
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.
