This link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site.

You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.


Here are some common solutions to help resolve the issue with your appliance.
Clicking on the underlined links will take you directly to that page.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Very rarely, a voltage issue could cause this symptom, but you should rule out the other possibilities first, unless you have a volt-ohm meter, then a quick check of the voltage MAY rule out these other issues.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
This could be a motor or drive system issue. To test for a motor problem, you will need to remove the drum belt. See exploded view diagram link below, for disassembly.

http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_16.asp

If the motor fails to start, replace the motor, See link below.
http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=2584&PPStack=1

If the motor starts, then you will have to look for:
1. Blower obstruction
2. Rear drum rollers.
3. Idler pulley
4. Drum belt, See link below

5. Front tub glide bearing and seal assembly. See link below.

One of them drum wheels is bad.To get to it: Depending on the type of door the dryer has, is how you approach the access of these dryers. Mostly though you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top. Remove the screws holding the front panel on. VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch before pulling forward or the panel clips will break! Some models have a panel on bottom. If they do then this panel must come off first. Then you remove the door springs and back off the screws holding down the bottom of the door panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top to get the panel out of your way. Get the drum out and inspect the wheels.

After replacing my belt and drum rollers my roper dryer has a clicking noise as it rotates


Could be a lot of things causing it, blower wheel, motor, idler pulley, rollers. Dryers have several moving parts that could cause a clicking sound. The blower fan could be coming into contact with something. There is a motor, tensioner and a belt that turn the main drum, the tensioner for the belt could be loose thus causing the clicking noise as well.
