Question about Roper RGX4634KQ Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer not heating

We had to move the dryer out of the way yesterday (about one foot) to make room for the new washer, but only had to unplug it and disconnect the vent - the gas remained connected and on. Moved the dryer back in place, plugged it back in and reconnected the dryer vent, but now it is not heating. Any ideas?

I moved my Cabrio electric dryer to another room. A new outlet was installed in the new room. When first plugged in, the dryer runs and tumbles but will not generate heat. Suggestions?


Your electric dryer uses110vac to run the motor which makes the drum turn. It uses 220vac to run the heating elements. I'll assume you had a qualified electrician add the new outlet. If not, I'm betting whoever did the install used the same electrical phase for both 110 sides of the plug. You can't use an electrical tester to test this as both sides will read the same. Manually trip the breaker (should be a double breaker) and then check the outlet. The wiring to the hot leads should be black on one phase and red on the other. Let me know what you find out

Dryer Maytag LDE 9316 ACE -what is the capacity of that model dryer? Thank you!



bg_title_capflex.gif
Capacity is a key consideration when shopping for a dryer. The more you are able to dry in a single load, the less time and money you will spend doing your laundry. Most importantly, look for a dryer with approximately twice the cubic foot capacity of your washer.

Typical dryer capacity ranges from approximately 3.4 cubic feet (for a compact model) to over 7 cubic feet for an extra large capacitor

In addition to saving time by drying on fewer loads, and money on lower energy costs, a large capacity dryer often means spending less time once the laundry is dry. There is typically less wrinkling when clothes have more room to move around inside the drum.

Whirlpool brand offers dryers with a range of capacity and flexibility.

No heat in dryer


Check the wiring first. If that looks ok unplug dryer from wall then remove the heating element and test it for continuity. If it is wide open then it is bad.

Longer cord/age of washer & dryer


Is your dryer electric with the big plug.
If so, what kind of changes are you making?
The dryer needs to be by the vent outlet so you can't move it far unless you are going to cut a new venting outlet.
If it is electric (not gas) then do not try to extend the cord. Have a licensed electrician move the electrical jack.
The cord has a large amount of current running through it and the longer the cord, the more resistance the current has to flow through. More resistance means more heating of the cord and less voltage for your dryer. This can result in the cord overheating to the point of melting and starting a fire itself or getting hot enough to ignite the very fine and very dry lint particles that are present in any laundry room.

This is a situation where you spend the money and have it done professionally because of the danger of fire, death, etc.

Good Luck!

Whrilpool washer/dryer stack the dryer doesn't get hot


You will find that the drier wont get hot because the timer is not forwarding onto the heating part of the cycle. Possibly if you click one click at a time, you will possibly get to the heating part of the cycle but its not safe as it wont go any further. Install a new timer and you will be happier I'm sure.

My new hot point gas dryer takes several hours to dry a med load of clothes. It has now started to gather moisture on the inside of the door, when I open it. I keep the filter clean, sometimes twice when...


Your dryer is not venting like it needs to, or the room that the dryer is located is too air tight.

Clean out the outside louver for the dryer. If you can, remove it so that you can see down the pipe. Remove as much lint buildup as you can. Go back inside, and remove the dryer vent hose from the wall, and again, remove as much lint as you can. Then do the same with the vent hose at the dryer connection. Reconnect everything, and it should start working better.

I mentioned the room being too airtight because it can happen, but is a rarity if dryer has not been relocated and problem occurs. Dryers take in room air, heat it, send it through the drum, and then out the dryer vent. If the room is air tight, then it won't be able to move much air, and cant' expel the moist air like it needs to.

No Heat


Make sure that there are no kinks in the export for heat (usually a tubular plastic device that exports the evaporated water out of the machine) and that it is properly attached. If this does not work, check to make sure that you did not break a belt in the dryer. If it is old a new belt may need to be replaced. See replacement instructions if necessary.
