    Thanks so much! I kind of thought that something needed replaced after pulling the dryer out last night and cleaing the excess lint from inside the dryer, the hose and from outside. Unplugged it and plugged it back in and shut the breaker off too. After all that I knew that it was not due to lint build up. I just could not remember the name for the possible problem. HEATING ELEMENT! Thank you so very very much! =)

    I have model rel4632blz Roper dryer and it will not heat up although the heating eliment is fine and the thermostat is fine. What else could it be? I also had to turn the timer knob around an extra time or two for awhile before it quit heating all together.

Dryer stay hot


It's very possible your element shorted to ground causing the element to get constant currant from the wall outlet if it was hot without running, if thats the case you need to replace the heating element.

Washed clothes with gasoline on them. Put into dryer now washer and dryer smell like gasoline. How do I get it out?


To remove gas (petrol) smell from clothing, soak overnight in baby oil (use like you would downy), then wash in baking soda, then wash with normal detergent. It will rid "gas smell" from an entire basket of clothes. Air Dry ONLY
From ehow website:
Step1
Buy a bottle of baby oil. Since gas is an oil based product it is going to take an oil based product to clean the gas out of your clothing. Baby oil is a great product to use as it shouldn't, in most cases, cause further damage to your clothing.
Step2
Soak your clothes with a bit of laundry detergent, water, and a generous portion of baby oil. Also dab some right on the stain before soaking.
Step3
Swash your clothes in the water for a while and let them sit for about five minutes. Transfer the clothes into your washer, once again remembering not to mix them with any other clothing, and let the cycle finish.
Step4
Wash the clothes. If you have a top load washer, let it partially fill up about 1/4 of the way with water. Put some of the baby oil in the wash with the clothes and swash it around a bit. Once the washer cycle begins, add the detergent and let the cycle finish. Make sure that your gas coated clothes are the only clothes you put in the wash.
Step5
Dry your clothing. Make sure you only AIR DRY on a clothes line these clothes. It could take more than one wash to get all the oil out of your clothing. If you use the dryer after the first, or even the second time, you could risk starting a fire in your dryer.
Step6
Check and see if any smell remains in your clothing. If the smell of gas remains on the clothing repeat the wash with baby oil again until the smell is gone.

Dryer does not dry


any number of things actually, lets start with the basics, does it start at all just not dry???with a meter you can troubleshoot most problems right behind unit taking off back panel and checking the thermostats for continuity, the heater can also be checked right there , any one not having good continuity needs to replaced, perhaps after 3 loads it got too hot and overheated a thermo or the heating coil went bad
