Question about Roper REX3614KW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Runs for five minutes, then shuts off...

Is it the timer? This problem is the same for all settings - set the dial, push the button, and it runs for about five minutes, then shuts off.
Will check more possibilities this weekend, but the air flow seems to be fine.
Any suggestions?

    I push the start button and as long as I hold it the machine runs. During it's running I can hear clicking. If I let go of start it stops. Any ideas?

    what does it sound like when you try to restart it? if it groans when you try to start it, its the motor.

Clean your sensors if you have them. They might have junk on them that could be forming a moisture barrier preventing the sensors from feeling the wetness of them clothes. The dryer may think them clothes is dry because it cannot sense wetness.

Dryer is working but does not turn off, when it reaches OFF. It goes passed it. No matter where the dial is set, even the timer section, the dial goes passed the OFF marker.


Hi,
This model does not have a timer, so what model do you have? This is a electronic panel with push buttons. Is the unit still heating when this happens, or is it just running like anti-winkle (air fluff) setting?
Good Luck

LG dryer won't shut off - gets stuck at 6 minutes


Your problem seems to be the timer switch is faulty.
Timer switches are normally non-repairable. You would need to replace the faulty switch

Turns off after a few minutes


sounds like your motor is overheating or going bad. sometimes lint built up around the motor can cause it to overheat. or the motor is dying.

Starts automatically when I set the timer


This could be a problem with the start button switch (it should click when pressed/released) or with the switch on the motor.
