Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems to be the Thermal fuse that has gone bad. The thermal fuse is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. When this fuse goes bad it should be replaced as it cannot be repaired. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

The dry wont run on high heat cycle but will run on the low heat cycle


Could be the Hi Limit Thermostat causing problems. There are over 350 Roper Dryers. Not much can be diagnosed without knowing the actual model number of your dryer. Please drop a comment with full model number. You can view the parts by selecting the correct model from this site.

My kenmore 600 dryer will not heat up, what could be the problem?


No heat problems are caused by several things.
First lets do the easy thing and turn off the Dryer CB by pushing it HARD to off and then back on. Re-test for heat.
Next try different cycles as in Air Fluff, Delicate, regular etc... Air fluff is no heat but see if it heats on other heat temp selections. If you get heat on a different heat selection then the problem is probably an open thermostat. If you still get no heat the most likely suspect is the heating element. If the heating element is fine then your looking at the motor switch or wiring as the problem. Component of last resort to replace is the timer.
At this time I suspect either a high limit thermostat or an open heating element.
Mond you since you did not include your complete model number this response if for an electric dryer. IF your dryer is gas respond with a model number please so I can point to other things that cwill cause a no heat symptom.

Our maytag propane dryer will not heat It appears its not igniting


Usually when a dryer will not heat the problem is a thermostat but... it can be the igniter, the flame sensor, temp select switch or a motor switch. Try a different heat selection (low / perm press / regular and see if the burner lights. If it does light then it is most likely a thermostat. Without a model number I can not pass you specfic information to help you. With the model number I can pass service manual and parts source information. This is the best I can do for you without that model number information from the data plate inside the dryer door on the face of the door cavity.

Gas dryer tripping breaker when plugged in.


I have the same exact problem. Dryer works great....when empty. Put wet clothes in and 3 or 4 hours later they are as wet as when I started. I am going to kick the piece of junk to the curb and go get a GE dryer right now.....I suggest you do the same.
