Question about Roper REX4634KQ Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Turns off during cycle

Our dryer appears to be overheating and turning itself off during the cycle, it then will not start for awhile. We have taken the back off and thoroughly cleaned the vent. Is there possibly a thermostat or something else that would be turning it off? Thanks

My dryer takes forever to dry anything and often times will not turn on when i press start after it's been ran for a 70 minute cycle but will turn itself on after sitting for awhile my dryer is


This caused by one of two possible things. Either you have poor air flow, or a clogged vent preventing air from flowing freely and therefor making the dryer short cycle, which in turn will take you two or three times to dry yor clothes, or the heating element has gone bad, burnt in half and is making contact with the case to provide it just enough power to barely heat. The second thing is a very rare occurance. I would turn the dryer on, find out where the air vents out to, and with the dryer running, go to where it vents and check to see if there is a strong flow of air. 9 times out of 10 that is going to be your problem. Another way to check air flow is to just pull the vent off the back and let the dryer run and see if your clothes dry faster. If you do it that way and they still take a long time to dry, then you'll probably need to replace the heating element

I have a GE Dryer DBVH520. While drying clothes, it turns off for a couple of minutes and then turns back on by itself. Sometimes a couple times during a drying cycle. Is this normal?


The short verision is you most likely have a short on the dryer start switch OR a bad control board if there is no start switch at all. Both are very repairable items and something you could also do yourself if you wish... If you need help ordering a part feel free to call me Greg at 402 228 3302 and I can look it up for you.

thanks!!

Shuts off too soon when the clothes are still wet


Make sure the door does not come open while running.

If it turns off only during the auto-drying cycle, the moisture sensor may have failed.

If it turns off during the timed cycle, the operating thermostat has most likely failed and the high limit thermostat turns the machine off when it gets too hot. After the machine cools down, it will start until it heats up and turns off again.

Try to turn on but it wont stay on


If that dryer has a 4 wire start switch which simply twists a quarter turn to get off then replace it.

If your dryer stops during its cycle, wait ten minutes and start dryer again. If dryer starts, then the motor was overheating.

Solution, Check for lint blockage around the motor and for possible overloading. If dryer repeatedly stops during its cycle, especially during consecutive loads, replace motor.

Good luck

When you first start out with a cold dryer the dryer runs fine, then when you start a second load if wont?

It sounds like you motor is overheating, Your dryer probably needs to be cleaned, taken apart and all of the lint build up around motor removed. also so clean the venting and weather hood outside.
