Question about Roper RGX4634KQ Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Roper dryer The dryer won't start, it doesn't make any sound at all. Just like pressing the start button with it plugged in. It has worked well for 6 years but just stopped the other day and now nothing. I checked the power and the outlet is getting power. Would it be better to just get a new one or to fix or have this one fixed. Thank you for any assistance that you can provide. Terrence

ROPER DRYERS ARE MADE BY WHIRLPOOL. ON ALL CURRENT DRYERS, THERE IS A THERMAL FUSE THAT WILL
DISABLE A DRYER IF AN OVERHEATING PROBLEM OCCURS. THE THERMAL FUSE IS GENERALLY A SMALL WHITE ITEM FOUND IN THE REAR OF THE MACHINE, DOWN
ON THE EXHAUST DUCT BEHIND THE BACK PANEL. THERE ARE TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A METER TO CHECK IT, FIND SOMETHING THAT IS INSULATED
ELECTRICALLY TO SHORT THE TWO WIRES TOGETHER.
IF THE THERMAL FUSE IS BAD, THE DRYER WILL RUN WITH THE TWO WIRES SHORTED TOGETHER. REPLACE THE THERMAL FUSE. ALSO, CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE DOOR SWITCH LEVER ISN'T BROKEN OFF. IT IS LOCATED IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE OPENING OF THE DRYER WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR. THE DOOR SHOULD
PUSH IT BACKWARDS WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR.
TRY PUSHING IT WITH YOUR FINGER. YOU SHOULD HEAR IT CLICK. IF NOT, REPLACE THE DOOR SWITCH.

EITHER PART SHOULDN'T COST MORE THAN 30 DOLLARS.

My dryer mod rex5634kq1 stopped working


what stopped? Does it not Spin? if so it could need a new motor. If it spins but doesn't heat up. it could just be a heat sensor in the back that needs to be replaced or a heating element. if nothing happens at all it could be the start button needs to be replaced. Turn the dryer around and open up the top back panel. should be about 6 screws. inside there will be a diagram on the schematics of the dryer.

Hope this helps.

Where is the the reset button on roper dyer


There is no reset button on any dryer. Your Roper is a Whirlpool with a different nametag. Depending on how old it is there may be 1 or 2 non resetable fuses. They are in the back behind the rear cover. They blow when there is another problem. Such as a clogged exhaust or a bad cycling thermostat. Don't do any work on it without double checking that the machine is unplugged

My Roper dryer worked fine until my basement flooded about 6 inches of water on floor. Now my dryer just hums when I try to start the dryer. The heat does come on. When I spin the drum and hold in the door...


It sounds like the motor was damaged in the flood. You may be able to salvage it by spraying both ends of the motor shaft with penetrating oil several times moving it in between, but you may not be able to salvage it.

Dryer won't start


IT SOUNDS TO ME AS IF YOU HAVE A BAD DOOR SWITCH. YOU CAN TRY JUMPING THE SWITCH OUT TEMPORARILY JUST TO SEE IF THE UNIT RUNS.
