Question about Roper Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer model # RES7648JQO Serial # MK2707517 I put up a load of clothes to dry and when the cycle is done the clothes are still wet and there is water on the door inside the dryer. I've tried adding a dry towel to the load of clothes but the clothes still come out wet and the door is also wet. Help please.

    Ok, we tried what you suggested and it really didn't do anything but make the vent and exhaust line cleaner. The clothes are still not getting dry just warmed. Any other sugestions?.

It sounds like an airflow problem. check everywhere the air flows. inside the lint catch. the vent behind the dryer may be clogged or kinked. the exhaust line in the floor or wall of the house might be clogged. Dryer model # RES7648JQO  - 689b12c.jpg

    you may have to disassemble the dryer in order to remove the blockage. something may have fell down the lint catch. it sounds like your dryer is completely blocked in the lint filter area or blower box.

    there are no other suggestions. the air is blocked... period. the moisture is carried out through the air. the dryer will never get hot as long as water keeps evaporating and condensing inside the machine. water forming inside the dryer and on the door is a classic example of this.

    I have Samsung gas dryer model DV410. no heat, replaced two thermal fuse and hi low limit. Now it only works with timed cycle mode. the rest mode, it runs only for least the 5 minutes and shut off.

    timed cycle mean dryer not on sensor dry mode. check wire connection on moisture sensor bars (i think you forget to put 2 wire connector put together). when you use other cycle dryer use moisture sensor to dry cloths so sensor not working dryer will stop in 5 minutes or so because dryer think there are no wet cloths to dry. hope this help you.

    Permanent press cycle keeps shutting down and doesn't finish.

    Hello. I don't know what make/model dryer you have but the problem could be with load size and type of clothing. The sensor bars are usually located on the front of the lint screen housing(you have to put your head in the dryer and look back to see them--they are 2 metal strips, approx 1/2" apart and at least several inches long). The damp/wet clothing keeps shorting across the strips, telling the main board to keep the dryer running. If there isn't enough of a load, the dryer may think that the clothes are dry prematurely and count down too quickly. The sensor bar technology *is not* an exact science--it works best on large loads with like clothing. For smaller loads, use time dry and adjust the temp setting accordingly. I hope I helped you.

    Dryer turns on and rotates. However, does not dry clothes completely. Cycle signals wet,then damp,cool down and finally dry,but clothes are still wet. Sometimes the dryer works fine and completely dries...

    This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.

    My dryer will heat up, but it is not drying the clothes during the cycle. It takes 2 or 2.5 cycles to dry the load

    if you have the top model lint filter take it out put your hand in and see if you have good air sucken,if not you have a clogg somewhere in the dryer hose or wall vent,most of the time it is the wall vent, if the hot wet air can't get out the cloths will take forever to dry-mike

    Intelli sensor doesn't read that clothes are wet,just damp.does not get clothes dry in intelli cycle.does get them dry in timed cycle.already replaced sensor.

    do you stack clothes on top? If so take them off and try another load and never ever put anything on top. It insulates it and makes the dryer not run right. Good Luck
