SOURCE: My Roper Electric Dryer will not heat

i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

SOURCE: roper dryer will not start it is electric

The thermal fuse is probably open again, This condition is caused by restricted air flow out the vent system. Replace thermal fuse again and clean the vent hose and vent hood outside

Find your breaker box, flip the breaker that goes to your dryer off and then back on. If this does not fix it, I would call where I bought it and have them repair it under warranty. What they will find is either a bad thermal fuse and or thermal cut off or a bad element. The dryer has a year warranty on it and if the place where I bought it will not repair it for free, I would contact Roper or Whirlpool because Whirlpool is who makes Roper and let them know that the people refuse to repair it. I don't believe you will have a problem. Good luck

Belt broken, or off the motor shaft pulley. Or the motor might not be turning. Or the shaft may not be turning the pulley. Lay the thing on its side (on a towel so it doesn't scratch the side) and see if the motor is turning and if the belt is on the pulley. That should tell you what you need to do.

I have a electric dryer Model WED5810SW0 THAT I WAS TOLD I COULD CONVERT TO 120V from 240v is this true and if so how do i do this?

If you consider doing this the first thing is SHUT THE MAIN BREAKER OFF. Use an auxiliary light source to see when working in a dead panel. Always keep in mind an ARC FLASH ACROSS HOT MAINS HAS ENOUGH HEAT TO PEAL THE SKIN OFF OF YOU. Before an explanation of how to do it you should keep in mind that this is for a single receptacle only. If any other receptacles are on the same circuit they will also be changed to 240 volt receptacles and if you plug any 120 volt device into them, the 120 volt device will be destroyed. That said OK, any 120 volt outlet can be changed to 240 volt by removing the 120 volt circuits neutral, re identifying the white wire with red or black phase tape and connecting it to a new 2 pole 15 amp breaker. The maximum that this circuit will now load up to is, on #14 wire at 80% = 12 amps at 240 volts. The 120V receptacle must be changed to a 15A - 240V receptacle so that 120 volt devices can not be plugged into it. Never use 2 single pole breakers together because code requires that on a fault trip both legs of the 240V circuit must be disconnected simultaneously. OR USED A Quick 220 Voltage Converting Power Supply
Voltage converter buying guide. Voltage Transformer Buying guide.Voltage converters also known as voltage transformers are devices that convert foreign electricity to power devices from different parts of the world. A step down voltage converter is a 220 to 110 volts converter. A step up converter is a 110 volts to 220 volts converter. Our 2-way converters are voltage transformers that convert power from both 220 to 110 volts and 110 to 220 volts. They also work with 100 volts, 110 volts, 120 volts, 220 volts and 240 volts. This model is a 2 way voltage converter / voltage transformer available in many different sizes including 100 watts, 200 watts, 300 watts, 500 watts, 750 watts, 1000 watts, 1500 watts, 2000 watts, 3000 watts and 5000 watts.

How to connect a dryer in 240 v? Its a whirlpool dryer model WED5520SQ0. I believe I need a 240 volts supply, but I can't understand how to connect... I someone has the installation guide step to step,...

I have to say if you don't understand 120v and 240v it might be best to let someone more knowledgable help in person.
120v is 1 leg
240v is produced from 2 legs opposite phase.
do you have "A" and "B" phase and if so do you know how to tell?
Do you have electric heat with breakers?
If so i'll try to talk you through it

Heating element is not working

I would say it could be one of two things. The heating elements could be bad, not likely though as the were working when the dryer was reset. You may want to try changing your circuit breaker, as your heating elements work off of the 2 phase 240 voltage while everything else in the dryer works off 120V. Check the voltage on each phase of the breaker in your electric panel see if your putting out the full 110-120V per phase.

Can an electric dryer be converted to a gas dryer? My new lease house has only a gas connection. If the dryer cannot be converted is it cheaper to buy a new dryer or have an electrician add an electric...

no you can not convert :-( putting in a dryer receptical is probably your line of least resistance it is typicaly 30 amps at 240 vac. so it will require special wireing 10/3 nmd7 , 2 pole dedicated 30 amp breaker, and a special receptical not a problem unless the basment is finished dry walled ect,, and you are trying to put the dryer on the second floor (far away from breaker panel) that could get costly fast ..get a qoute. just a side note I highly recomend using a licensed eletrician depending on where you live making modifications to electrical or plumbing in a leased house can leave you liable long after you move out
Good Luck

I have Whirlpool front load dryer ) I just moved into a house that has a hook up for an electric dryer...can this dryer be converted to electric?

Hi, how are ya?

To answer your question,
i your dryer is a gas then no, you won't be able to convert it to electric because a gas dryer uses 120V whereas an electric uses 240V.

Sorry, good luck :)

Check connections at dryer terminal. sometimes they will melt and have now power and wont cause a breaker trip. plug needs 120v at L1 and 120 at L2 and equals 240 with L1 and L2 combined. can check at outlet with a meter.

Maytag model MDE7057AYW 5600 Watts dryer runs ,but

5600 watts will not operate off 120 volts.
This is a 220/240 volt hookup.
There are 2 legs of 120 volts each that operate the dryer.
The only part requiring 220v is the heater.
Otherwise 120v routes through the various controls and relays.

How to connect My kenmore dryer in a home that uses 240volts only

it should be the same as in the u.s.
you should have two legs of 120v and one ground ( thats three wires)
the only dif. should be 50 hz instead of 60hz

Electrical requirements for a Nexxt MO# WTMC 5321US

it would be simpler and cheaper to get a new dryer
most of the world uses a single phase 240v 50hz system, your dryer is designed to run on a 2phase 120v 90degree system.
the common statement that high voltage items like dryers use 220-240v is not strictly true, instead they run off both 120v phases of the 2phase system.
A transformer to produce a 2phase 90degree 120v 20A secondary from a 240v single phase source is expensive and very large.
It would be cheaper by far, to sell the dryer, and replace it with the equivalent model built for 240v single phase, than to buy the transformer and ship the dryer.
