Question about Roper REX3614KW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My Roper dryer is a little over a year old. When I turn it on it makes a humming noise but the drum does not turn and then I smell a burning smell. I cam move the drum with my hands and it will turn. Of course it is just out of warranty. Any ideas?

Two things are likely going on here,1- something is dragging down your motor check for a twist in the belt, idler pulley bad, belt installed wrong or wrong belt. Also check your front drum felt and glides if the felt is bunched up that will drag down the motor. Now the smell you probably have some felt or lint in the burner clean it carefully you do not want to damage your igniter.

Its common for coins left in pockets to dislodge from the clothing. Most times you see them in the drum. On rare occasion they can get into places that could damage dryer. However since there is a burning smell it is not something to guess about. Being that it is less than a year old it should be warrantied, if it is not a mal-funtion you would still want to fix it. Call Lowes and set up a service call

There's possibilty that the bearing is going bad. It would cause the belt to slide alittle when the drums starts to turn. The strain on the motor because of the bad bearing can cause the motor overload and shut down until it cools, then it can be restarted.

Model # 72852 Burning smell Drum does not turn but a humming noise When door is closed it hums without the start button being pushed.


f you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.

Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.

belts dont really burn the main reason for buring smell is lint on the element did you take the whole barrel out? as 90% of the lint that burns is formed around the heating coil behind the barrel

Dryer got very hot and smelled burning..


This is usually a result of a stalling idler pulley or drum, causing a burned spot on the drum drive belt.

The situation will only worsen. The belt is best replaced before it breaks.

Items to pay attention to, when the drum drive belt is replaced, are:
(1) Clean and lube the idler pulley and drum roller shafts.
(2) Confirm that the drum glides will yield additional service life.
(3) Check motor condition and de-lint the blower housing and blower intake pathways.

Maytag dryer mod #mde600ayw only makes a humming noise when start switch pushed will not turn.


a hum with a burning smell means the motor winding has failed.
you can try this: open the door and hold in the door switch, have another person hold the start button. You manually roate the drum by grabbing a fin and moveit while the unit is humming.IF the dryer starts, you need a motor.
Good Luck!
