Roper dryer #RES7648JQ0 will not start


Your dryer very likely wont start due to a bad Thermal Fuse. This video I have attached shows how to replace the thermal fuse. I know the video says Whirlpool dryer, Whirlpool is the maker of the Roper brand and it should be exactly as shown in the video. The video shows using a jumper wire to bypass the thermal fuse if you have such a jumper wire it is effective to check if the fuse is the problem,if not just temporarily connect the 2 blue wires together and test if the dryer starts. BE ABSOLUTLY SURE BEFORE EITHER USINGA JUMPER WIRE OF CONNECTING THE BLUE WIRES TOGETHER ***DISCONNECT THE POWER TO THE DRYER*** USE JUMPER,OR CONNECT WIRING THEN RECONNECT POWER TO DRYER so it may be tested to see if the dryer starts.

I base my diagnosis on my 30 plus years as a appliance service technician.

Thanks,Gene

DLE2512Wcan this dryer be plugged into an electrical socket or does it have to be wired directly into the fuse box. Does it need its own line?

Change a 3 prong plug to 4 prong


Is it an electric dryer or gas dryer? If it's a 120 volt gas dryer, then no, you need to keep it on a 3 prong cord. If it's an electric dryer, then yes it is possible to install a four prong plug onto it. Although it isn't recommended.
The main thing you need to know is which wire is ground. From the machine, it should be the green wire. On the plug, there should be on prong that is slightly longer than the other 3. The ground has to be the first one in the wall receptacle and the last one out. So the slightly longer one is where the green ground wire needs to be wired in. The other two wires are both power so it doesn't really matter which prong you wire those wires at.
Once again I'll remind you that it isn't recommended to convert 3 to 4 prongs like that. Just be careful and make sure you aren't touching any live wires.

Diagram of wiring on Miele dryer


Hello cpopp101,
Please follow the link and goto page 30 for the electrical requirements. The manual is for the T8012 but all the dryers are the same for electrical. Goto page 30.

Trying to wire a 3 wire dryer from panel box to dryer plug


Sounds like you have a 10-2 NM wire. One black, one white, one bare copper. At panel box, black to one hot terminal of breaker or fuse holder (L1). White to other breaker terminal or other fuse holder (L2). Bare copper to the grounded neutral buss bar.
At the dryer the bare neutral goes to the center terminal, the other two go one each on either side, it won't matter which way. Hot Neutral Hot. The neutral terminal of the dryer should have a wire or metal strap connecting it to the dryer frame if you are not using a four wire supply.

Hooking an electrical dryer to a breaker


You will typically need a 40 amp 220V circuit for this ( check with local building inspectors).  You will need to run some hefty wire probably #8 three wire  (again check) and install the type of plug receptacle that is on the  dryer cord.

Inside the breaker box you will need a dual breaker 220V breaker rated at 40 amps.  The wire coming into the breaker box will need to be clamped in place with appropriately sized wire cable clamp where the enter the box through a knockout- available at any hardware store.

 

Now the big question-  why are you switching to electrical?  Gas is pretty much half as expensive as electricy  and will dry the clothes faster (usually gas dryers generate more heat than electrical ones).   Just wondering..
