Gently pry up the entire lid using a stiff putty knife. once it is opened up you can see the belt. Joe

Roper dryer turns and heats up. When drum turns sounds clunky and smells hot. Cover is off and nothing is obviously in the way. When spun by hand feels clunky also and does not feel constricted.


If replacing the belt doesn't fix it, the motor is bad, and on this unit I wouldn't recommend spending the money/ time to replace it. Another thing is, on most dryers, there are springs attached to the drum that stretch over time, overloading can aggregate the problem. Just a thought....most likely the belt or motor.

After replacing my belt and drum rollers my roper dryer has a clicking noise as it rotates


Could be a lot of things causing it, blower wheel, motor, idler pulley, rollers. Dryers have several moving parts that could cause a clicking sound. The blower fan could be coming into contact with something. There is a motor, tensioner and a belt that turn the main drum, the tensioner for the belt could be loose thus causing the clicking noise as well.

How to replace a dryer belt on a roper dryer


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT. If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine. Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum. Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn. While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7. Good luck, I hope this helps Please do not forget to rate me Thank you

Dryer will heat up but drum will not turn. Unable


Good day,
Sounds like a broken belt, Excellent tutorial on changing the belt on the link below.
Caution: Some models used a very poorly designed belt tensioner. If the tensioner is that style, replace it while purchasing the belt.
Appliance parts house counter men are well aware of the problem. The Roper line is made by whirlpool.

I have a Roper Dryer Model REX3514PQO. The dryer


Sounds like you have a broken drum belt.
If you have to replace your drive belt and if you have a front loading machine.
First you will need to unplug your dryer from the electric.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley.
While you have the drum out, I would also recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
If the belt is not broken, then I would check to see if the timer switch is working properly, if not then you may need to replace it.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Solution #1 makes no sense as a dryer does not have a water pump!

But the exact same problem happened to my same model dryer. Pull out from wall. Remove lint filter. Take out two screws holding top to lint filter casing. Pry up top at the front (pops out of two plastic retaining dowels and is hinged on the back so you can tip the top up). Remove front panel by taking out two screw-bolts at top of backside of front panel and lift up -- careful to support drum as you do, as the front part of the drum is supported by the flange built into the front panel. Check:

1) Is belt broken (the incredibly skinny belt that runs around the middle of the drum, not the rubber track at the back of the drum). If belt is broke, replace. New belt at internet parts stores is about $10 bucks.

2) If belt is not broke, get down on belly with flashlight and find the spring-loaded wheel that keeps the belt snug against the motor pulley -- push on the spring-loaded wheel and slip the belt off.

Now try to spin the motor pulley by hand. If it turns freely in both directions, it is probably good and the problem might be in the start switch (don't know how to test that).

If the motor pulley does NOT turn -- or is very hard to turn and binds -- the motor is dead. Probably the bearings burnt out (that's what happened to mine after only 4 years of light use). You have to remove the back panel to replace the motor, but it's a simple job if you know what a screwdriver and socket ratchet are for. New motor at internet parts stores is about $80 bucks.
