Roper Electric Dryer Heats but drum won't spin

I have a Roper electric dryer, RES7745PQ0. It's about 3 years old. I set the cycle time and can hear the timer working. I hit the start button and the heat turns on but the drum doesn't spin and I can't hear a motor. No air is blowing besides what the heat is moving. I open the door and the heat stays on until I set the cycle timer to off. Can someone help me get started troubleshooting?

Thanks

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.

I have a roper dryer and when I turnn the knob to any setting it makes a noise as if it is getting an overload of electricity. The heating element heats up but when I push the button for it to spin it will not spin. I took the back off and cleaned evrything real good and checked all the wiring. put it back together and it worked fine to dry one load of clothes but now it is doing the same thing.

check the blower wheel sometimes objects get caught in it not allowing it to spin. If it is clean open the dryer door push and hold the door switch and push start while it is humming rotate the drum. if it starts to spin then you need a new motor it will run you probably 150 - 200 dollars

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.

Roper Dryer heats up but won't spin


The problem is likely the dryer belt . Go to www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html there is a video that will show you how to replace it. It may be a different model but the process will be the same. You can also enter in your model # for diagrams and illustrations. Not all models are available There is also videos to show you how to disassemble your dryer.

Dryer heats, drum turns, hot air circulates, but clothes don't dry


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Dryer making funny noise


If your dryer is old, your probably right. Your drum rolls on 3 rollers and they tend to get "out of round" after years of use. If you want to change them, you will have to remove the drum from the front of the dryer (after removing the door) and they will be attached to the rear wall. Good luck. Your fix it cost is around....$50.
