Question about Roper RES7646KQ Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer will not turn on

The motor sounds as though it wants to run when you set the minutes, but when you push the button, dryer does not turn on. I assume this may be something to do with the button itself?

Check for a blown thermal fuse. It's about an inch long and is inside the rear of the dryer, usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a blown thermal fuse. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

My dryer will only run for 5-10 minutes


sounds like you have a bad motor,when it heats up it's stalling and when you go to restart it there are start windings and run windings in the motor it's not switching over to the run windings so when you hold the start switch in you're sending constant power to the motor,all it does is when you push the button it's a momentary switch power goes to the motor and hits the start winding in the motor should be just for a moment,then it switches over to the run winding and this keeps the motor running,your motor isn't doing this,

Frigidaire electric dryer. 1.5 years old, stopped turning and only hums when button is pushed


Hello
Is it a pleasant sounding hum, like the sound of a motor running? If so , probably your belt broke.If that hum goes on and on for several minutes, it's definitely belt. Bad motor or start relay, would cut out quickly. Either way ,youv'e got to pull out machine and pull off back to inspect.

sounds like your motor is overheating or going bad. sometimes lint built up around the motor can cause it to overheat. or the motor is dying.

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Dryer shuts off after releasing "push to start"


this problem sounds like it can only be 1 of 2 problems. the start button or the motor is not going into run winding. i found over the years that the blue wire i believe is burnt at the motor. this can be repaired quite easily .cut the wire and strip it putting a new connector on. if you need to you can buy an assortment at a hardware store. if every thing is good check the start button for burnt wire if ok then you most likely have a bad motor. i'm pretty sure though that a wire is burnt off at the motor
