ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication

If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Remove the dryer from the vent leading to the outdoors and try drying a load. This will reveal a restricted external/internal exhaust. If it dries in a normal cycle, it means the duct to the outside needs replaced or cleaned.If it still takes too long, the washer may need some maintenance to make it extract more water. If none of the above resolves the issue, the dryer will need to be disassembled inspected for worn, parts/air seals, etc. Follow the link below for disassembly instructions

My dryer seems to run rough. I changed the belt but won t turn with wet clothes. What could it be. Thx


I would say the dryer has a failed central ball bearing. You can say it by turning the drum manually, with the belt not installed and hearing for the tipical "grainy" sound of the rusted or stucked bearing.

What would cause intermittant heating in a Roper Electric Home Dryer?


the dryer vent, not the parts behind the dryer, where it goes into the wall to where the vent leaves the house has lint build up in it. this will cause the element to short cycle cause long dry times. if its really bad ive seen people have to run dryer 3 or 4 times to get clothes dry. clean out vent. this should solve problem
