Question about Roper RES7648E Dryer
Was working earlier, put another load in and pooped out. Reset the breaker from fuse box. Getting power. I can set the cycle select to time dry and hear the time click. Light inside works, appears the short is in the start putton. How can I verify or is there another culprit I am missing??
Breaker blows when start is pushed? A shorted switch is possible, but more likely the element has failed & contacted ground inside the machine. The easiest way to tell is direct visual inspection. New elements are cheap & fairly easy to install. Check for severe lint buildup in the motor, & make sure it turns freely.

Your dryer may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your dryer is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your dryer. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your dryer in.
If your dryer's door switch is defective, it will not allow your dryer to start. Test your dryer's door switch. If it is defective, replace it.
check the thermal fuse in the back of the machine,, remove the back you'll see it
