SOURCE: Roper Dryer Won't Turn On

Ok...almost same problem...resolved by replacing thermal fuse by blower....so I guess the thermal fuse can just go with a little surge from opening closing door switch if it was already on its way out...or something...but simple fix anyway....thanks for giving me the order of things to try!

SOURCE: I have Roper dryer. Evidently door switch is

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer or dryer ID doesn't
mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a
schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and
discovered that more than 4,700 people were asking
for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer
repair of my own and found an excellent video which
showed me how to take my machine apart. This
video made it possible for me to do my own repair. I
was so impressed with the video that when I saw all
these people needing help, I wanted to tell them
about it. If you have a top loader (washer) of the
direct drive type, this video might be a Godsend for
you. If you look at the back of your washer and the
panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove)
chances are you have a direct drive and this video
is just what you need. You can see this video at
www.acmehowto.com You will probably need
more help in determining what the problem is and
how to fix it. If your repair problem is a washer or
dryer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com
where they have very good trouble shooting and
repair information on most washers and dryers.
I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry
about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good
luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my
advice on fixya.

SOURCE: Dryer will not turn off

Good day,
Sounds like the door switch. Easy repair. Remove the lint filter.
Remove the 2 screws under the lint filter opening. With a screw driver, insert it between the lid and front panel on one side at a time. Pop that end up and then do the other side.
Lift the lid up and away from you.
You will see the switch. Replacing it is a pure nuts and bolts operation. Just make sure you mark the wires before removing the old switch.
The kit (It's a Whirlpool product) should be available at any decent sized appliance parts house.

The thermal fuse is likely blown. Disconnect power then remove the rear panel to access the thermal fuse on the blower housing.

Once the panel is off, bypass the thermal fuse by joining the wires together then insulate them properly. Reconnect power and start the dryer. The thermal fuse is indeed blown if the dryer starts. Replace it including the cycling thermostat.

My Roper dryer heats up but does not turn when I push the start button. What would cause the dryer to not spin?


one is the belt may be broken or have slipped off the pulley.the door switch could also be bad. try and hold the door open and depress the door switch at the same time someone is pushing/turning the start button and then try to rotate the drum be hand and see if it will turn. the motor could have alot of lint build up and cause the motor not to turn.

Dryer will not turn off when I open the door. As the light will not come on, I believe the problem is the switch on the door. The door switch assembly can be ordered from Roper, but I cannot find a...

Dryer qquite working.


The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch will not activate and the dryer will not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever.


I would also check the thermal fuse as well. it is located on the vent duct or blower housing. If this fuse is damaged or tripped, it will not allow the dryer to run as well.

Dryer is getting Power but not coming on.


Check the following---


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

Roper dryer


ROPER DRYERS ARE MADE BY WHIRLPOOL. ON ALL CURRENT DRYERS, THERE IS A THERMAL FUSE THAT WILL
DISABLE A DRYER IF AN OVERHEATING PROBLEM OCCURS. THE THERMAL FUSE IS GENERALLY A SMALL WHITE ITEM FOUND IN THE REAR OF THE MACHINE, DOWN
ON THE EXHAUST DUCT BEHIND THE BACK PANEL. THERE ARE TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A METER TO CHECK IT, FIND SOMETHING THAT IS INSULATED
ELECTRICALLY TO SHORT THE TWO WIRES TOGETHER.
IF THE THERMAL FUSE IS BAD, THE DRYER WILL RUN WITH THE TWO WIRES SHORTED TOGETHER. REPLACE THE THERMAL FUSE. ALSO, CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE DOOR SWITCH LEVER ISN'T BROKEN OFF. IT IS LOCATED IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE OPENING OF THE DRYER WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR. THE DOOR SHOULD
PUSH IT BACKWARDS WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR.
TRY PUSHING IT WITH YOUR FINGER. YOU SHOULD HEAR IT CLICK. IF NOT, REPLACE THE DOOR SWITCH.

EITHER PART SHOULDN'T COST MORE THAN 30 DOLLARS.

Electric Dryer No-Start/No-Heat


Try check your timer, and see if you have voltage going to motor. Also check to see if you belt is installed. If broken there is a switch to the belt also. Try check you Door Lid Switch.
