Question about Roper RGX4634KQ Gas Dryer
How do I open the dryer to access the door switch to replace it?
REMOVE TWO SCREWS UNDER THE LINT FILTER DOOR.
USE A FLAT INSTRUMENT SUCH AS A PUTTY KNIFE TO PUSH AGAINST A SPING CLIP IN EACH OF THE FRONT CORNERS OF THE SPACE BETWEEN THE TOP AND FRONT.
ONCE THE SPRING CLIPS ARE PUSHED TOWARD THE BACK, YOU CAN LIFT THE TOP AND SWING IT BACK UP AND OUT OF THE WAY. IT IS HINGED AT THE BACK. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE DOOR SWITCH FROM THE OPENED TOP. IF NOT, REMOVE TWO SCREWS LOCATED TOWARD THE TOP FROM THE INSIDE OF THE CABINET.THEN YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SWING THE FRONT
TOP TOWARD YOU. THE DRUM WILL FALL SLIGHTLY BECAUSE IT IS SUPPORTED BY THE FRONT. THIS SHOULD
GIVE YOU ENOUGH ROOM TO ACCESS THE SWITCH.

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.

Investigate these areas if your dryer is not starting:
Proper Voltage from the House
Your dryer may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your dryer is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your dryer. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your dryer in.
If your dryer's door switch is defective, it will not
allow your dryer to start. Test your dryer's door switch. If it is
defective, replace it.
A dryer cannot start if its start switch is
defective. Test your dryer's start switch. If it is defective, you will
have to replace it for your dryer to start again.
A thermal fuse is a heat-sensitive fuse attached to
your dryer's exhaust duct (in most models) that is designed to blow if
the dryer overheats. A blown fuse would cause your dryer to not heat, or
to not work at all. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal
fuse. Test the component. If it has blown, replace it.
A defective dryer thermostat could be what is
preventing your dryer from starting. Open up your dryer's cabinet. Test
each of your dryer's thermostats. Replace any that have become
Your dryer's timer will not function properly if its
motor is malfunctioning. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its
motor. Test the component. If it is not functioning as it should,
replace either the motor itself, or the entire timer assembly.
A burned out motor could be what is keeping your
dryer from starting. Test your dryer's motor and if it is defective,
replace it. You will have to open your dryer in order to gain access to
