Question about Dryers

Roper Dryer REX4625EWO

My dryer stopped working today and I know why but know know how to fix it. I had a t-shirt stuck in door while dryer was running and tried to pull it out. The dryer stopped immediately. When I opened dryer the t-shirt was stuck on the piece of metal that lets dryer know the door is closed. The piece of metal is now bent and I can't figure out how to bend it back to connect so dryer knows door is closed. Any advice would help.

Thanks,
Kyle

You will have to remove the cabinet and fix the switch. Go to www.repairparts.com and enter you model number. They will have a diagram on how to remove the cabinet.

Check the drum surface of your dryer for possible object that may be stucked in the drum holes that may cause damage to the clothes. You may do similar checks of the washer drum if your dryer drum checked negative.

Good hunting.

High pitch squeak


This is typical when the drive belt becomes worn and slips more than it grabs. This causes the squeaking noise you are describing. Below is a short but helpful video which shows the location andl how to replace the belt on a Roper dryer. Best of luck!

Roper dryer


ROPER DRYERS ARE MADE BY WHIRLPOOL. ON ALL CURRENT DRYERS, THERE IS A THERMAL FUSE THAT WILL
DISABLE A DRYER IF AN OVERHEATING PROBLEM OCCURS. THE THERMAL FUSE IS GENERALLY A SMALL WHITE ITEM FOUND IN THE REAR OF THE MACHINE, DOWN
ON THE EXHAUST DUCT BEHIND THE BACK PANEL. THERE ARE TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A METER TO CHECK IT, FIND SOMETHING THAT IS INSULATED
ELECTRICALLY TO SHORT THE TWO WIRES TOGETHER.
IF THE THERMAL FUSE IS BAD, THE DRYER WILL RUN WITH THE TWO WIRES SHORTED TOGETHER. REPLACE THE THERMAL FUSE. ALSO, CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE DOOR SWITCH LEVER ISN'T BROKEN OFF. IT IS LOCATED IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE OPENING OF THE DRYER WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR. THE DOOR SHOULD
PUSH IT BACKWARDS WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR.
TRY PUSHING IT WITH YOUR FINGER. YOU SHOULD HEAR IT CLICK. IF NOT, REPLACE THE DOOR SWITCH.

EITHER PART SHOULDN'T COST MORE THAN 30 DOLLARS.

right above the door where it closes, there should be a door switch actuator, although your closing the door it might not be activating door switch.

Dryer is leaving brown streaks on cotton clothes


To all victims of the brownish colored streak marks: I share your frustration!!! I have the same problem with my dryer which started when my dryer was only 3 or 4 years old - - totally unacceptable for an expensive top of the line dryer! A repair guy showed me how the brownish streak marks come from the felt liner which goes around the drum. Look inside your dryer for the beige or tan colored felt which sticks out around the circular drum. If you rub the felt with an old white t-shirt or paper towel, you will see the same brownish colored marks. My repairman recommended getting the felt replaced eventually, but until then, he gave me the following tips which really help avoid getting the streaks: For white or light colored clothes susceptible to the brownish streak marks: I dry these items as part of a very lightweight dryer load - with just a few other lightweight items. By doing a small lightweight load, clothing is less likely to get caught up & rub against the felt edges. For example, I dry 4 light colored men's dress shirts with 2 or 3 other lightweight shirts. OR for white or light colored athletic "dry fit" type athletic apparel, I dry 6 - 8 total lightweight shirts/shorts. If I throw my white Nike top or white pair of summer pants into the dryer with all my "whites", they will be doomed to getting brownish streaks due to the heavy load pushing them against the darned felt liner! Whenever possible, I wash susceptible items on permanent press to avoid wrinkling, then hang dry. Prior to putting these clothes in the dryer, I also "pre-clean" the felt with an old white cotton t-shirt by reaching into the dryer and rubbing along the felt edges until I'm not getting as much brownish color on the t-shirt rag. For a permanent fix, call a repairman or see the following do-it-yourself YouTube video on "Dryer Repair - Replacing the Lower Front Drum Felt Seal": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoYP_YsGP68 . I have a repair person coming today to fix 2 other appliances, so I'm finally getting my dryer fixed, and I will post an update soon.
