Check the door switch. You should hear a click when you press and release it. I replace these switches all the time. Here is the part should you need it.

SOURCE: Roper Dryer Won't Turn On

2b3eba2.jpgThis fuse mounts on the rear blower housing. If lint builds up in the dryer this puppy will melt and shut down the dryer door circuit. It will be just as if you opened the door. Simply replacing it will get the dryer going again but failing to properly clean out the dryer will result in more fuse failures.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have a roper dryer red4440sq0 that will not turn

I bought this dryer 2 years ago. After exactly 1 year, the heat stopped working completely. It turned out to be the Thermal Cutoff device ($20). Then, just last week, the thing stopped working completely. It took me all of 10 minutes to determine that it was the Thermal Fuse (http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3132867), just by using my continuity detector on the two terminals. I unhooked the terminal wires, stuck them together, and the dryer turned on fine. They count on people buying new dryers completely whenever one of these dinky little parts made by child laborers in Asia fail. The fuse is $10 at the site I just linked.

My Kenmore Elite dryer has power & you can select a cycle, but pressing the start button does nothing. The timer flashes and makes a buzzing sound.


Check door switch plunger, it protrudes into the switch to make contact and may be broken, if OK, check for broken door switch. Order parts from repairclinic.com

is the buzz more like a growl? if so, you probably have a bad motor. if it is truly a buzz, then try turing your timer to a different cycle. if the problem continues, replace the timer

I switch the dryer on the light comes on as normal


HI. the filter is fine. Anytime you can hear a buzzing, That is behind the timer module, this will indicate that there is a serious issue concerning the timer mechanism. This device is damaged. The actual timer motor is failing. This will not allow for proper advancement of the cycle selected, in this case. The entire timer control device will need to replaced asap. Once replaced, the unit will operate correctly.

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.
