This is usually caused by a blown thermal cut-off located on the top of the heater housing. It blows and cut power to the heating element when the high-limit thermostat fails. The thermal cut-off must be replaced, together with the high-limit thermostat, if found open. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this problem.

Roper model red4640yq1 heats in auto mode but not on timed dry


Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

I have a Roper RED4640YQ1 dryer and it will not advance to the cool down cycle on any setting. The dryer completely shuts off as if the cycle was over. I've replaced the thermal fuse, nothing changed.


Not familiar with the Roper unit but most dryers have TWO thermal sensors.
One to keep check of the Drum temperature and one in the coil chambers to regulate the coil temperature

Attached is a good troubleshooting video. I think that you will find that the Roper is the same as the Whirlpool and Kenmore
Note that the first thing that he does is to test the incoming voltage.
I suggest that you do this with the dryer running. I have seen breakers that will pass voltage without a load and as soon as a load is applied there is no voltage showing. As he says in the video the dryer can run on 110V as the motor is 110V however if it is missing the other leg of the 220V it can't heat. Another way that you could test this is to reverse the two incoming hot wires.

The dry wont run on high heat cycle but will run on the low heat cycle


Could be the Hi Limit Thermostat causing problems. There are over 350 Roper Dryers. Not much can be diagnosed without knowing the actual model number of your dryer. Please drop a comment with full model number. You can view the parts by selecting the correct model from this site.

Roper dryer res7648kq0, replaced heat element, thermal fuse, cycling thrm, thermal kit, checked outlet, circuit breaker, still not heat, will not advance on AUTO, but will on timed cycle. Now what?


Wow.
In electric dryers with an AUTO cycle; the heater runs on 220 volts, but the timer motor runs on 110 volts. There is a resistor in the system to cut down the voltage. If the resistor is bad, you will see the same symptoms as if a thermostat was bad. The timer motor will not run in the automatic cycle. You need to make sure that you test for continuity in the resistor.
I've looked at two parts diagrams for your washer and cannot find a sensor anywhere in either, so the thermostat is what tells the timer to advance once the dryer reaches a preset temperature.
The thermostat will only tell the timer to advance if the dryer reaches the proper temperature, if you have some clogging in the vents, the dryer may never reach the proper temperature, and thus not advance on the auto cycle. but i'm sure you've probably checked that. I'm baffled. Let me know how it pans out if you can. Thanks. I'm still trying to find a wiring diagram for that model.

thanks,

Mike
