Have roper electric dryer. That will not start. Have replaced thermostat and thermal cutoff. Checked the power and it is getting pwer to dryer. Any suggestions?


What is most likely the problem is the THERMAL FUSE which when it has gone out will cut power to the motor as opposed to the thermal cutoff and thermostat which controls ONLY the heat and has no bearing on the motor.
The thermal fuse is the housing where the lint filter fits into at the bottom of it, it's white in color and oval shaped check and replace it and the dryer will start very likely

Roper dryer movel RED4440vq1 drum does not turn. replaced motor, still not workking. belt is good. wiring harness is supplying 120 v on the 2 end red leads. door switch good. push to start button good.

The thermal fuse is likely blown. Disconnect power then remove the rear panel to access the thermal fuse on the blower housing.

Once the panel is off, bypass the thermal fuse by joining the wires together then insulate them properly. Reconnect power and start the dryer. The thermal fuse is indeed blown if the dryer starts. Replace it including the cycling thermostat.

How to connect dryer wires to thermal cutoff

The first thing I would like you to do is get your model number from the dryer, it is located near the inside the of the dryer door. you need to make sure you have the right heater and thermal cutoff kit. The manufacture has more than one type of heater and thermal cutoff kit out, (( some will not work with others ))... Call another parts store or sears and make sure you have the correct parts !!

Most of the thermo cutoff kits have direction and if they are not making scence then the chance of you having the rong one is good !!!!!!!

If you remove the thermal cutoff from your origanal heater and then look at how many conetion pins are left. The new heater and old heater should be the same.

The most common heater is the 2 conection. But they made one with three. and if you have the one with three, it has to be replaced with the same one !!!

Without knowing the model of your machine, I cant tell you how to wire your machine.

I recomend you use the direction that came with the Cutoff kit.

I have a roper dryer red4440sq0 that will not turn on.. I have checked all power its going to the dryer and hitting what it needs to hit and suggestions?

I bought this dryer 2 years ago. After exactly 1 year, the heat stopped working completely. It turned out to be the Thermal Cutoff device ($20). Then, just last week, the thing stopped working completely. It took me all of 10 minutes to determine that it was the Thermal Fuse (, just by using my continuity detector on the two terminals. I unhooked the terminal wires, stuck them together, and the dryer turned on fine. They count on people buying new dryers completely whenever one of these dinky little parts made by child laborers in Asia fail. The fuse is $10 at the site I just linked.

Where is the heat element on this dryer? Dryer is not drying clothes. Dryer do spin but no heat. Changed fuses. Fan belt still intact.

Either on the back of the machine or on the floor under the drum.  If the lint trap is on the top it will be in the back of the unit, if the lint trap is in front, it will be under the drum.  Before you replace the element check the thermal cutoff which is on element.  If it is blown you will also need to replace the Hi limit thermostat also on the element.

you will need too take off your back panel of your dryer and the heater is on your right the thermal cutoff is on the left of the heater housing at the top and then there is a little white thermal cutoff on your blower housing in the bottom left of the dryer now if this is not how your dryer looks let me know cause there is several different style of kenmore dryers but this is the most common one
