    Yes! I have the same problem. No power it seems but the timer runs, even on the OFF position.  No fuse has been tripped in the basement.

My roper dryer starts runs few min. Then stops


ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle.

When pushing the start button the dryer will come on for about 10 minutes and then stop. Then sometimes it doesnt come on at all


If it starts right back up after stopping there is an electrical problem maybe at the motor start switch. If you have to wait for an hour before it will start again then the problem might be that the motor needs to be cleaned of a lint build up.

Strong possibility your dryer fuse has melted due to a lint buildup in the filter chute of your dryer. Check out my photos of a dryer tuneup I did last summer. ROPER DRYER TUNE UP

Roper dryer stopped working during cycle REX6634RQO


replace your t-fuse again but also chekc to see if the vent going outside is restricted. if hte vent is smashed or clogged the heat has nowhere to go. i would say that is your issue. clean your vent before you change he t-fuse.

Dryer won't start


IT SOUNDS TO ME AS IF YOU HAVE A BAD DOOR SWITCH. YOU CAN TRY JUMPING THE SWITCH OUT TEMPORARILY JUST TO SEE IF THE UNIT RUNS.

bjsouth Most likely the problem with your dryer is bad motor. It is not repairable and has to be replaced. If you feel you can do it yourself, let me know and I'll help to buy new motor and provide you with instructions how to replace it. Gendos...post back
