This may be caused by a partially burnt out heating element, a faulty thermal fuse, or a faulty high limit thermostat. I would start with the thermal fuse. It is located just inside the back of the dryer and is usually mounted on the exhaust duct. The components can be checked with an ohm meter or multimeter for continuity. If the component shows zero ohms, it is defective and must be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.

    Before you tear into the machine to check anything, first check out how you have the dryer vented. Make sure the vent is clear and not collapsed anywhere. Best wishes and good luck.

Clean/repair the dryer vent. If the airflow is restricted the result is the one you just described.

Hello. Generally, when clothes take a long time to dry the problem is excessive lint in the exhaust pipe. pull the dryer out from the wall, disconnect the vent pipe and remove lint going to the outdoors and also back inside of the dryer. Regards, joe

Roper dryer stopped working during cycle REX6634RQO


replace your t-fuse again but also chekc to see if the vent going outside is restricted. if hte vent is smashed or clogged the heat has nowhere to go. i would say that is your issue. clean your vent before you change he t-fuse.

Dryer has some heat but is taking a long time to dry clothes


This type of problem can be caused by a partially burnt heating element, a blown thermal fuse, or a faulty high limit thermostat. All of these components can be checked using an ohm meter or multimeter. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

It takes usually 3 complete cycles to dry an average load of clothes.


try taking the vent hose off your dryer and running it through a cycle with it off...if it drys ok then you have a clog somewhere in your venting.

The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem

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.

Most common cause of this is a clogged venting going to the outside to test this remove the vent from the back of the dryer and run a load if it drys ok them you know you have a venting issue and will need to be cleaned out if not plz repost and we can look deeper into it
