Question about Roper RES7646KQ Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Roper / Whirlpool dryer. No power / intermittent power.

I have a Roper RE7646KQ front load dryer. It has worked fine for three years. We recently moved and while I was installing it at the new house It would not power up. No light no heat no motor no buzzer. Nothing completely dead. Then suddenly the light would come on and it would work, but when I pushed it up against the wall it would be dead again. Cord is new and we have power all the way up to the terminal block and to the the timer. I took the top off the dryer and can find no burnt or broken wires or loose connections. The only two things left I can think of is the door switch and the timer. Am I missing something?

The door switch would be my top candidate.

The thermal cut-off , which is the small t-stat looking piece located at the top of the element housing ( on vertical mount elements ) or the far front of the element housing ( on horizontal mount elements ) , is usually the cause for no heat .

My duet front loader dryer has no power

If you have 220v going to the unit you want to take the bottom pannel off. It should be three tork screwws. Then there is a little white fuse mounted on the blower houseing. This is the most common problem especally if your vent has not been cleaned in a while. (over 3-4 years.)

Roper Electric Dryer Heats but drum won't spin

Yank the filter out the top. Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing. Use a putty knife to pop the top and then remove the screws holding the front on. NOTE: raise up on the front panel slightly so you won't damage the bottom clips. Get the front out yer way and remove the drum. Clean out the dryer and oil the rollers and idler. Use this handy ROUTING GUIDE to see how to put the belt back.

Cleaning lint

Your Roper dryer is made by Whirlpool, there is no reason to clean lint from around the heater, very little lint collects in that area. Every once in a while you can take the front off by removing 2 screws from under the lint screen, then pry up the top and there are 2 screws that hold the front on inside facing out. After removing the front you can vacuum inside below the drum.

In my case, the problem was a dead main board. The board cost $190 and the overall repair cost $335. I will never buy another Whirlpool due to this experience.
