Question about Roper RES7646KQ Electric Dryer

# Dryer won't start

I put a pair of tennis shoes in the dryer and after bouncing around a little bit the dryer quit, smelled a little like hot oil. Is there a reset switch or a fuse that may have burned?

it sounds like the problem may be with the door lock. Having shoes bouncing around in the dryer they are bound to hit the door over and over possible causing damage to the lock. Try pushing on the door and holding it shut while you turn on the unit and see if it works.

### A pair of running shoes costs \$5.00 more than a pair of regular tennis shoes. The total cost for both is \$115 Find the price of the regular tennis shoes

You will never learn any mathematics if you do not solve math problems. I am here to do your homework. I will however help you set the problem up.
1. Define variables (unknowns).
2. Let t be the price of the tennis shoes
3. Let r be the price of running shoes.
Translate the text into mathematical expressions
A pair of running shoes costs 5\$ more than a pair of tennis shoes
5 \$ more ---> ... +5
Cost of a pair of running shoes (r) = cost of a pair of tennis shoes (t) +5
So the first statement can be expressed as r=t+5

The total cost of both ------> Sum of the costs r+t
The total cost of both is 115 \$ ------> r+t=115

Now you have a system of two linear equations in two unknowns
( r=t+5
)
(r+t=115
There are a few methods to solve the system (comparison, substitution, or combination/addition/elimination). I gave the 3 possible names for the third methods.
Choose a method and solve the system to find t and r.
Note: Although all three methods, if carried out correctly, will give you the same solution (t,r), one of them should be preferred. It is worthwhile to recognize immediately which method should be favored depending on the system you are dealing with.

### Dryer drum stopped rotating, dryer blower continues to work.

The belt probably broke, and coincidentally happened while drying the shoes. The belt is easy to replace. Open the back and you'll probably see the belt laying on the bottom

### I have a Neptune model MDE9700AYW dryer that wont start

Check to see if the little tab in the door jam, which causes the dryer to turn off, is broken or bent. If its bent you may just need to bend it back.

### Maytag Neptune dryer won't start/

I do not have that specific dryer but try these simple steps.
1. Shut the electric breaker off to the dryer for about 30 seconds and and back on.
2. Open the dryer door and inspect the switch that tells the dryer the door is closed. work it by hand just to make sure it is not stuck.
3. Spin the timer controls to another setting and see if the other setting will work.

That's all I've got for now...
