I have a kenmore 86873100 dryer (no manual) and I'm unsure of the different heat settings. I get that "air" is no heat, but all of the other settings feel like high heat.

I have a Roper Dryer Model #REX3514PQ0 and it's about 5 or six years old. I was drying my laundry. The first load dryed fine. One the second load I notice that the setting nob up top was not moving and...


What I would do is pull the dryer out and unplug the power cord. I would remove the rear cover and check the components back there for continuity.f08dda1.jpg83a4f65.jpg15ccca9.jpgIf all of that is good then the timer or breaker might be bad. Why? The timer calls for heat through the RH leg. The amp draw from the heating element arcs up the contact point inside the timer. The motor runs on 120 volts the heater runs on 240 volts. So the breaker will take a beating on the heater side of it. The dryer will hower still run. To recap It could be the heater the limits the time or an electrical problem.6db32c2.jpga2de035.jpg

I have a 5 to 7 year old kenmore dryer it runs but does not heat. should i repair or just buy new?


Be sure to check your breakers for dryer some times only one side of the 220v will trip and the dryer will run but it wont heat. The element is the only thing that is 220V. Hope this helps. A 7 year old dryer is not that old most dryers is good for 12 to 15 years.
It would be good to pay a service call and an est. them make the choice to fix or replace

Roper Dryer will not heat


I don't have a picture of the rear panel available, but if you have to remove the exhaust duct to remove the panel, I would be checking to ensure the exhaust ducting is not clogged/restricted. The duct does not have to be completely blocked to cause the dryer not to heat properly.

Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating.

Roper Electric Dryer Heats but drum won't spin


Yank the filter out the top. Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing. Use a putty knife to pop the top and then remove the screws holding the front on. NOTE: raise up on the front panel slightly so you won't damage the bottom clips. Get the front out yer way and remove the drum. Clean out the dryer and oil the rollers and idler. Use this handy ROUTING GUIDE to see how to put the belt back.

Dryer isnt drying on frist cycle


This is most likely an element problem. it is best that a tech replace it but if you feel comfortable take it out and to your local repair shop. match it up and reinstall it.

Roper dryer, timer doesn't time out and not heating up?


Dryer will run forever if it doesnt heat up, Dryer has to heat up and thermostat has to get hot and open to start the timer. Odds are rally great, it is your heating element.

It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!

Dryer not drying


Check your lint filter. Put it under running water to see if the water goes through it. Chances are it is clogged up. Wash it and put it back. Should do the trick.
