Roper model red4640yq1 heats in auto mode but not on timed dry

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Duet gas dryer only drys on timed

One thing you can do is clean the sensor strips located inside the dryer. Get some windex and clean the coating off them. Dryer sheets rub against the strips and form a barrier. The machine THINKS the clothes must be dry because it ain't SENSING dampness from wet cloths rubbing against them sensors.

See that white skinny component by the blower? That is the thermal fuse

The temps rise considerably faster. This control turns the heating element on and off during the drying session. So if you have this:
The autodry feature is not gonna work so good. Why?

See that orange wire attached to the high limit thermostat?
That feeds power to the timer motor if the heater element is not on.
Bad control thermostat AND/OR air restrictions are the Autodry type dryer's worst enemy.
Try first cleaning the dryer and see if that makes a difference.
If it still has problems then change out the control thermostat.

Dryer works but has no heat. Voltage is good. Could it be the TCO?

I suspect that your heater strips in the dryer have burned out. Just to give you an idea, I have replaced my heater strips in my 40+ year Whirlpool dryer two additional times over the years. You will have to take the back off of the dryer after disconnection the 220V plug and examine the heater strips.

My roper REX3514 Dryer will only dry on the time cycle.

If you use a lot of dryer sheets, it will build up an oily residue on the sensor strips causing a "false" reading. Light sandpaper and alchohol over the strips should clean them well. Another possibility, is if you have a mixed load, ie..towels, socks, jeans , if a sock or something light keeps hitting the strips, the dryer thinks the whole load is dry (it doesn't know there are different thing in there) Try keeping loads similar when using auto dry.

Moisture sensor not working

No parts needed for this repair! Get a warm damp cloth and reach inside the rear of the dryer and clean the **** off the 2 strips of metal in the back called sensors. Next get the rear of the timer panel off and yank out the small computer board next to the timer. This is the moisture sensing board. Get some alcohol and clean the copper contacts. Shove the board back in and retry.
