SOURCE: roper dryer won't heat

first thing is check the voltage between the black and red terminals at the back of the dryer. you should read 240v. then check the voltage between the balck and the white and the red and the white. there should be 120v at each. if all that is good remove the back of the dryer. make sure you unplug it first. then no the lower right you will see the heater. near the top of the heater you will see a red wire and a red/with a white stripe wire attached to the high limit cutout. remove one wier and check the switch for continuity. if you read nothing its bad and thats why there is o heat. Ifnit checks good replace the wire and then remove one red wire from the heater. then check the heater with your meter. most times on the whirlpool products its one of the two that is bad. check the two thing I described and if you still need help feel free to get back to me and we can go from there.Good luck

Taking the back off the dryer towards the bottom in the center there is a white pc.of plastic about 3 inches long and 3/8" wide. Its clipped on the inside panel and has a screw securing it. It has two wires clipped to it.Thats the fuse ! I got a replacement form the local Sears parts store for about $15.00.

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.

SOURCE: Roper brand electric dryer, runs but not heat.

Must be the heating element. Remove the rear dust cover and check the heater for continuity. NOTE: if the heater is good then the small fuse mounted above the heater chamber is blown. Look for a blocked vent if this is the case. Reset the small limit by smacking it on a hard surface till you can get a replacement part. If your heater element is open get a metal **** connector to crimp it back till you can get a replacement part. It is saturday dude, you gotta improvise or get a rope and hang them clothes outside. Hay the dryer still runs so you can fluff them sun dryed beautys up. LOL G'day mate! Good Luck!

I have a Roper RED4640YQ1 dryer and it will not advance to the cool down cycle on any setting. The dryer completely shuts off as if the cycle was over. I've replaced the thermal fuse, nothing changed.


Not familiar with the Roper unit but most dryers have TWO thermal sensors.
One to keep check of the Drum temperature and one in the coil chambers to regulate the coil temperature

My roper dryer is not giving off any heat. and everything else works just fine. The dryer is only 6 years old. I also just cleaned out the lint trap straight through.


Hi,
You did not say if your dryer is gas or electric. So if your dryer is electric go check out this electric no heat tip...

and if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

Warm air but clothes not drying


Make sure u have seleced the high heat setting..The fact that it is heating more or less indicates that the element is o/k.
Check and clean any filter(s) that u can see,it is more likely to be a thermostat problem than anything else. and there are at least 2 of them, also check line voltage is correct.
Plz rate this solution.
thanks.

Roper dryer, timer doesn't time out and not heating up?


Dryer will run forever if it doesnt heat up, Dryer has to heat up and thermostat has to get hot and open to start the timer. Odds are rally great, it is your heating element.
