I have a Roper Electric dryer that will not heat up and will run through the cycles somtimes. I have ordered and replaced the heating element, thermal fuse, high limit and cycling thermostats. I have


First check the thermal fuse on the back of the filter housing.

Attached is a good troubleshooting video. I think that you will find that the Roper is the same as the Whirlpool and Kenmore
Note that the first thing that he does is to test the incoming voltage.
I suggest that you do this with the dryer running. I have seen breakers that will pass voltage without a load and as soon as a load is applied there is no voltage showing. As he says in the video the dryer can run on 110V as the motor is 110V however if it is missing the other leg of the 220V it can't heat. Another way that you could test this is to reverse the two incoming hot wires.

Samsung gas dryer heats up and then stops. No lint in dryer trap or hose. What could it be? Heating Element? Reset button? Please help! !


The key to your issue is the gas dryer. you need to know how it works to be able to diagnose it. A gas dryer will only fire up if the thermostat calls for heat and the hi limit thermostat is not tripped and the gas valves open and the igniter fires. Any of these not working will not lt dryer fire up the heat.
lets assume the running thermostat is ok since it fires up initially and they seldom are intermittent. A restricted vent would trip the high limit t-stat quickly and would not fire up again till it cools down and resets, since you have stated that the vent is clear and unrestricted we will again assume the hi limit stat is not the problem
(it still could be if it was faulty and opened up prematurely, but again that is not one of the more frequent issues). The flame detector needs to be satisfied to continue the burn after flame is ignited. The detector is a simple device that is located on the burner plenum and is a bi-metal with a clear window that lets light (flame) through to a bi-metal switch that will interrupt gas supply in case there is no flame. these again are not on the most frequent list of parts going bad.
The most likely cause of this problem is a bad igniter. they glow orange on start up and ignite the gas. even though they glow orange does not mean they are good, most develop cracks in the ceramic material and are very brittle. If a crack is present you seldom can see it and often will look normal in operation, but once heated the second cycle of heat fails to ignite. This can be measured cold by resistance check compared with standard value. I often just change them on a hunch , saves time and part cost is not high. Labor time is often higher checking it's value. Another possibility is an intermittent gas valve and that is harder to diagnose and it is an expensive part. Seldom is the valve intermittent though.
This should give you a good start, good luck

Dryer works, but no heat.


Thermostats/thermal-fuses in back of dryer, usaully 2 of them, call a local appliance supply place, should be able to supply them. if electric 220volt, 1 side is 110v for heat otherside 110v is the motor, timer, light, ect.

No heat


This information is Courtesy of expert heatman101

If your gas dryer is not working because it is not heating then you need to check this out. Today?s gas dryers often do not use the simple thermocouple with a pilot to prove the flame anymore. They use a much more complicated method of lighting the burner and proving the flame.

The use of electric igniters has become the standard for many dryers today. The thermostat calls for heat, power is supplied to the igniter, then after a certain amperage draw on the igniter, the gas valve is energizes to open and allow gas to flow starting the flame. As long as the amperage draw on the igniter is high enough then the gas valve stays open till the thermostat is satisfied.

Sometimes the igniter will crack and no current will go through and the igniter will not even heat up or glow. Sometimes the igniter will wear to the point where it will still heat up and glow, but the current draw will not be high enough to allow the gas valve to open. This creates a confusing situation where you look into the dryer and see the glow from the igniter, but get no heat because the burner never lights up. If this is the case then you will need to replace the igniter even though it seems to be okay. The only way to know for sure is to know what the current draw requirements are for that gas valve and to have an amp meter to check the current draw.

Whirpool gas dryer not heating up


Take a volt meter and call for the unit to come on. Take the connector off to the igniter and check for voltage to those wires. If you get voltage but it does not start, then you know the igniter is bad. It could also be a limit switch. There will be 2 wires that terminate to a small disk with a button in the center. Depress the button firmly to reset it. It should be located near the burner. If it is the timer, you will need to locate and isolate the power wires leaving the timer and check voltage there. Hopefully this information is helpful.

Gas dryer heats up then heat cuts off


It sounds like it's going off on high temp. As I recall, there is a run thermostat and a high temp cut out thermostat. Un-plug the dryer first. Check the run thermostat first. There should be a wiring diagram inside the dryer on the back cover plate. I believe it's accessible from the back of the unit. It will be a small disc-shaped device with a wiring lead into and out of it. If you check its continuity, it should be closed. If it's open, it's probably bad.

Make sure it is firmly affixed in its postion. If it isn't you could be getting a false reading.

If you are not familiar with this kind of work, call a competent repair shop. Be careful!

Put in a new heating element,no hot air


now that you replace the heater you should be able to check the thermal fuse and possibly the high limit thermostat. both mounted right by the heater assy, if open(no continuity) on either of them yo will get no heat. also first check your incoming power. you MUST have installed on rear into the terminal block and-in this order(black and red can be switched but white MUST be in middle. RED(110v), WHITE(nuetral), BLACK(110v). black to white 110v, red to white 110v, and then black to red should measure at least 220,

No heat


Check the high limit switch located on the combustion chamber tube.  There is a button that you can reset and that should take care of the problem.
