Question about Roper RES7646KQ Electric Dryer
Sounds like the door switch. Easy repair. Remove the lint filter.
Remove the 2 screws under the lint filter opening. With a screw driver, insert it between the lid and front panel on one side at a time. Pop that end up and then do the other side.
Lift the lid up and away from you.
You will see the switch. Replacing it is a pure nuts and bolts operation. Just make sure you mark the wires before removing the old switch.
The kit (It's a Whirlpool product) should be available at any decent sized appliance parts house.

The image below shows the wiring diagram for your model of dryer. The door switch is shown in the closed position. When the door is opened, the contact is broken that completes the neutral circuit through the door switch. (I am not showing that your model of dryer has a drum light. If it did, then the drum light would illuminate when the door is opened.)
Based on your symptom, a bad door switch is apparently causing this problem. It is not breaking the neutral circuit to stop the motor from running. Replacing the door switch assembly should fix this problem. NOTE: Be sure to unplug the dryer before accessing any internal components.
