I think this unit has a lint filter that pulls out the top of the unit. if so then your heating element is in the back and has 2 red wires going to it at the bottom of the element. unplug the unit and remove the element and check it to see if it is broke. the element needs to be in one piece.
if it is good, then check the thermostats that are mounted on the side of the element housing. one at the top and one right by the lower wiring. the thermostats are available in a package with both and those are most likely what is wrong.

depending on which model roper dryer it can be a thermal fuse,high-limit thermostat,cycling switch,burned off wire in control panel,check each side of the heating element to ground and find 125 v.a.c. then on the side of the element that has low or no voltage on it to ground start at the element and back track the components leading to the dead leg on the element till you find 125 vac to ground and replace or repair component or wire,then you should get 240 to 250vac across heating element terminals

How do I know which thermal unit is the one that shuts the dryer off when the clothes are dry? one's called a cycling thermostat, another is called a fixed thermostat and the third is called thermal...


Usually the Fixed Thermostat (also known as the High Limit Thermostat) and Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) are used in conjunction to regulate and protect the heating circuits.

The Cycling Thermostat (also know as the Internal Bias) controls the amount of heat required/desired to dry your clothes.

You need to remove the rear panel of the dryer to access the heating circuits on this model dryer. With the back panel removed, the heating circuits will be on the right hand side and the blower fan assembly is located on the left. The Hi-Limit Thermostat and TCO are located on the outside of the heater box with the Hi-Limit Thermostat mounted next to the heating element terminals and the TCO located at the opposite end of the heater box. The Cycling Thermostat is located on the blower fan housing next the Thermal Fuse. It will be the metallic round component, while the Termal Fuse will be a white plastic component.

For better clarification, you can view an exploded view diagram of your appliance at pcappliancerepair.com. If you type in your model number, all the parts I've mentioned are listed under Section 3 (Bulkhead Parts). The components are listed as follows:

Item 6 - TCO/Hi-Limit Thermostat Kit (both parts should be replaced at the same time).
Item 15 - Hi-Limit Thermostat (sold separately)
Item 23 - Thermal Fuse
Item 24 - Cycling (Internal Bias) Thermostat

If you are experiencing heating problems or longer dry times, please review the following link:

Pay particular attention to the section that discusses dryer ventilation. The majority of dryer heat related problems and failures are attributed to poorly installed, clogged, or kinked dryer ventilation. If you haven't had the ducting checked in a while, now may be a good time to do so.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My son put soaking wet clothes in dryer....since then clothes wont dry (happened 2-3 weeks ago) took hose off back and ran with it off....still no heat.....help! john


I would check for a blown thermal fuse or faulty heating element. These components can be tested using a multimeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. The thermal fuse is about one inch long and is located in the rear of the dryer, usually attached to the exhaust duct. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Roper (REX5634PQO) dryer will not start


This fuse mounts right beside the filter housing. Maybe you unpluge a wire while fiddling with the housing. If this fuse blows then the dryer will not run.8ab116a.jpg
