Dryer will heat up but drum will not turn. Unable


Good day,
Sounds like a broken belt, Excellent tutorial on changing the belt on the link below.
Caution: Some models used a very poorly designed belt tensioner. If the tensioner is that style, replace it while purchasing the belt.
Appliance parts house counter men are well aware of the problem. The Roper line is made by whirlpool.

Your machine uses a belt tensioner of the type that the belt 'glides' on, creating a squeak noise that #1 will get worse and #2 is wearing out the belt. Replace the old tensioner with the one pictured here. The squeak will go away and the belt will last longer.

Sounds like you broke a belt, which is very easy for some of us to replace. If your uncomfortable with gas call a repairman.

Manufactures place alot of safe guards on gas appliances. Please dont be afraid of it, gas is still more efficent at drying than an electric dryer.

Gas dryer not turning


I can explain how to do this but I would suggest going to the library and looking for a generic repair book with diagrams. It's hard to explain but very easy to do. Most Whirlpool, Kenmore and Roper dryers are basically the same as far as belts and moving parts. The only difference is the features. What you neet to know applies to both gas and electric dryers. You should also replace the idler pulley and both rear drum rollers while you are in there. One of these probably caused the belt to break. Your dryer will run so quietly after this you will hardly know it's running You will also need the diagram on the belt package to replace the belt as it is very tricky the first time especially if you haven't seen it in place. Replacing all the parts I mentioned will cost around $20 - $35 and take about an hour. While you have it apart clean out all lint and check vent hoses and outside damper. DO NOT USE FLEXIBLE PLASTIC DUCT PIPE!!!!!!! It is now against most building codes for darn good reason. It's a fire hazard!
