Yes,I have a good idea.
First,take your volt meter and verify 220 volts are in fact coming to the dryer terminal block.
If it is,unplug the dryer.
Remove the rear panel.
Set your volt meter for ohms.
Unplug the thermal fuse located on the left of the main exhaust vent.
It is 1 and 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide and white in color.
Touch the 2 meter leads to the 2 terminals on the thermal fuse.
No trading is a bad fuse.
Replace it.
If the fuse gets a reading it is OK.
Then,open the top lid from the cabinet and check the door switch for continuity.
If there is no continuity,replace the door switch.

Hello,I just picked an electric ROPER dryer last night.I assembled it plugged it in and it worked fine.This morning I put a small load of laundry in it and it worked fine.I then put in a second load and...


Hello,

The most likely part that has gone out is the thermal fuse. What will make that go out so quickly is a blocked vent causing excessive heat build in dryer. Did the dryer that this new one replaced havea similar problem of not starting or perhaps it ran but took forever to dry a load of clothing? if that was the case the venting caused the problem with both old and new dryer

Good luck
I hope this helps,if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating

I have a Roper dryer and it just turns off we can


first thing to do is to find out whats wrong with the cord, get to the part of the cord that goes into the machine, wires are loose. a 220volt dryer will not heat if one of the wires are loose. you need to get into machine and make sure wires are tight. this is also a safety hazzard, do not leave machine plugged in until problem is solved

Roper dryer model res7648kq0. wont turn on or heat ?


On the back side of the dryer sits the heater and various safety clixons. Any of them that would be OPEN ( no continuity) would be the problem. Here are some repair pictures

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.
