    I am having the same problem, but it is not from cold. It has happened in the past, but eventually goes away and operates normally. This time, however, it is staying!

    I have experienced the same problem for the last year. It happens intermittently and at one time I did think it was due to the cold weather, but all my tricks are not working this time. I also tried heating up the room and using a warm blow dryer to heat up the back and front of the panel area. I tried unplugging and replugging the electrical connections and even left it unplugged over night. Nothing is working this time. :(

I had this problem last year on several cold days (14 degrees F). I solved it by heating up the laundry room with a portable heater and heating up the display console with a hair dryer. Within minutes my dryer was back to normal and would run.

However...I am now having this problem again on cold days (25 degrees F) a year later and I so far am unable to trick my dryer into running. This time I might need to call the repair man.

Displaying the alarm code

The alarm code is displayed by a repeated sequence of flashing of the ANTI-CREASE/END OF CYCLE LED (0.4 seconds on, 0.4 seconds off, with a pause of 2.5 seconds between sequences). The buzzer emits a series of ,bips" in synchronization with the flashing of the LED.

  • ANTI-CREASE/END OF CYCLE LED: indicates the first number of the a alarm code
  • START/PAUSE LED: indicates the second number of the alarm code
Now you must count how many times the LED lit up and we will know the fault code.

DOESN'T HEAT


Could be bad heat element. Lift top of dyer, or look from back side with access panel removed, or look thru door if glass door while dryer is running on a heat cycle. You should be able to see red glow of heat element coming on. If not then you will need to open up dyer and remove drum. Inspect heat element for break in coil or coils touching each other or metal frame of dryer. You can also use an ohm meter and read the restence of the coil ...should be just a couple of ohms.
If it is a bad coil you should be able to replace fairly easy. If it is not coil than you will need to check themistor or cycle control switch. Hope this helps.

Dryer check filter light keeps blinking and dryer will not start cleaned lint filter and nothing happened display on control board blinks when dryer is turned on and that's about it can you assist dyer...


There is a reminder light to "Check Lint Filter" near the lower right of the cycle knob. It will come on every time the power button is pushed. After cleaning the lint filter, if the "check lint screen" light does not go off, it is likely that the touch pad control will need replacement.

My dyer wont get hot


check for proper power in the rear of dryer should have 220 plus voltage across the red and black wires ... if you have power there then your going to have to gain access to the heater assembly and
check the thermostat and heater ...turn power off or unplug and remove access panel and check the thermostat for continuity and then check the heater for continuity with the wires to each removed so you are not reading through anything else...if you do not have continuity on the both of them they are bad...your meter should beep if it has sound or should read 0 if it is good on the ohm setting ....

This is most likely due to the coils on the gas valve, they can become unstable and cause the symptoms you are describing. The coil kit is part number 279834 and runs about $20.00. It is replaceable from the front and not too hard to do.

Side note: the '8' in your model number is actually a 'B'

Roper rex351 dyer not getting warm


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil. You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty. If the heating coil is ok, then: You can check the thermostat/thermistor by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape. If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor. DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST. This could cause a fire, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine. I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

It sounds like the drum may be stuck. Turn the dryer on with the door open, just keep the button pushed. Then try to turn the drum by hand, and see if it will start to turn.

All this is doing is letting you know that the Auto dry sensors are kicked in and checking to see how dry the clothing is.

Are the coils getting voltage do you know? Or you can check the thermal fuse to see if its open.
