My roper dryer works fine, it heats and the timer advances, it just wont shut off at the the end of a timed dry or auto dry. What do you think?


A timed drying cycle uses the timer alone to stop the drying cycle. Once it times out like an egg timer a set of contacts open up shutting off the dryer. Or a set of contacts closes to activate a relay which in turn shuts off the power.
Auto dry usually uses a moisture sensor which would do the same thing as the timer. Once it doesnt sense moisture in the load for a predetermined time it in turn triggers a relay which shuts the power off. Some auto dry cycles just use the timer alone and guess-timate the drying time by the selection.
If yours does not use a moisture sensor then most likely it is your timer/cycle switch. There may or may not be a relay involved.
Most dryers have a basic wiring diagram on the inside somewhere on one of the panels which will help.
Since yours is acting up on both cycles Im guessing you have a bad relay or connection to that relay somewhere IF it uses a moisture sensor.

How to troubleshoot my timer motor on my roper electric dryer


to test the timer motor set dryer to a timed dry setting(dryer does not to be running) test for 120 volts ac on the 2 wires to the timer motor,or with dryer unplugged check for somewhere between 100 to 5000 ohms resistiance onh the 2 wires,its better to check for 120 vac though.if 120 vac and doesnt advance timer motor is bad.Usually timer motor isn't available as a seperate parts but only as a part of the entire timer assambly

Dryer runs...timer wont rotate and wont heat up


Good day,
Timer woun't run if there is n heat.
1. Check to see you are getting 230 volts to the machine. The motor uses only 115 so is not a good indication.
2. Remove back cover. You will need an ohm meter to test the components.
A. In the center bottom is a skinny white bakelite device held on with one screw. Remove one wire and check. It should check zero ohms. If not replace.
B. On the bottom right is a canister with the heating element terminals sticking out. They should test at 30 or less ohms. If not replace the heating element.
C. There are about 3 other limit thermostats in the area you're working. They should all check at zero ohms. Replace as needed.

Below is a tutorial on changing a heating element.

Hi. Our dryer will start normally and then the


HI. This will occur when the there are issues that concern the integrity of the timer motor. This mechanism is responsible for the rotation of the timer module.It is damaged at this time, and it must be replaced asap.

A damaged timer motor will affect the nature of the drying cycle. It is the main initiator of all functions during the selected cycle.

Dryer does not heat up nor does the timer rotate as dryer runs could the timer be broken causing the dryer not to heat up?


IF you have the timer set in the auto dry setting, then it will Not advance if it does not heat. Set it on the time dry and monitor if the timer now advances.
A no heat issue can be one of many failed components--i.e. thermo fuse, ignitor, coil assembly etc

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.

My Amana Model NDG5800AWW dryer has ceased to dry clothes dependably. The Only setting that still sort of works is HIGH timed drying, and this heats up to what used to be the "delicate" setting....


if you are using the auto dry setting and the dryer is still running after 5 hours you either have a timer issue or a thermostat problem.

The timer is driven by a motor, if the timer motor is bad the timer wont time out.

in the auto dry cycle the thermostat has to cycle off and on which then sends power to the timer again advancing the timer.

set the timer in a timed dry cycle for say ten minutes, if the timer advances and turns off then you know the timer works. if it doesnt advance you have a timer motor issue,

if the problem is the auto cycle, you could replace the thermostat, about $20 american. however a clock timer would be cheaper.

Based on how old is your machine and do you want to stick a timer in it after already paying the service man is up to you.

A basic bath towel load should be dry in about 50 minutes, this varies on how good your seals are and how long a vent you are running, if the dryer vent was plugged you already have shortened the life of your heating element.
