You need to check your door switch and thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is located behind the back panel at about 6 oclock. If the thermal fuse is bad, you need to make sure the vent is clean.

Roper electric dryer wont start


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

What to Test When Whirlpool or Kenmore Dryer Won Start or Run

Feb 09, 2016 | Roper Dryers

1 Answer

All lights come on but dryer will not start it just clicks a samsung dryer model # DV350AEW-XAA


Having had a dryer do this before, it can be one of a couple of things. The fusible link connected to the heater has burned out because of too much lint in the exhaust, and when that safety fuse is out most dryers do nothing. They're easy to check, with the power off, check for continuity.(Warning: Unplug before testing) If it's open, it's not working, there's usually two sensors, and two thermostats, make sure you test the fuse/sensor. It will usually have a wires coming from the starter switch, same color (possibly red or blue). The starter switch solenoid is working, which is the click; but, the fuse may be bad.
The other thing is the timer, you would probably have noticed problems with the timer before this, like noises, having to move the dial to get it to start, wiggling it to get it to start, missing cycles, stalling and having to manually move it to the next stage, or spot, things like that; but, if the fuse is good it could be the timer.

It also might be the door switch, though one doesn't usually hear the solenoid click if it's the door, that varies by model though.
The timer being a more expensive replacement, we like to test other things first; save money and get the right thing fixed.

Good luck!

Whirlpool dryer doesnt heat, time and shut off when you open the door


if you have it on time dry and it doesn't count down the timer is bad but it should stop when you open the door unless you have a broken door switch too,just open the door and push in on the switch with your finger,it should make a clicking sound,if not the door switch is also broke,if you have the timer on auto or more or less then it won't move without heat.on auto the heat comes on when the dryer reaches temp. the heat shuts off and the timer will advance a little,then the heat starts again and the timer stops,it will do this until the clothes are dry by using a sensor instead of time.

Dryer won't start..light clicking noises


There is a switch inside the unit that stops it when the belt breaks or comes loose. Check that.

Roper dryer won't heat up. Model REX4635EQ2. how do you change the heating elements?


Before you start diagnosing your problem, ascertain that you have made a proper and positive heat selection on the control panel, then proceed.

Below is a link courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, which shows disassembly/diagnostic procedures.
http://www.repairclinic.com/Dryer-Electric-Whirlpool-Style-Version-2-Appliance-Diagram

A volt-ohm meter (VOM) will be helpful in diagnosing most issues.

http://www.ehow.com/how_2076998_use-voltohm-meter-safely.html?ref=fuel&utm_source=yahoo&utm_medium=ssp&utm_campaign=yssp_art

Purchase a VOM
http://www.omega.com/ppt/pptsc.asp?ref=HHMA&Nav=vhtj06

Below are the next 4 common failure modes to check.
If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

If all the above checks allright, then proceed to the next steps below.

Thermal overload/cutoff thermostat.

Dryer will not turn on although the timer is working


IF your hearig a click when you push the start button then the button and relay are good check the saftey switch on the door to see if it has come loose and follen down or moved back if the switch is not pressed the motor will not work also I have seen the switches go bad you need to unplug the dryer and cross the too wires togeather plug the dryer back in and press the start button if she starts order a new swith. The motor could also be bad you nees to remove the back cover and check to see when the button is pressed if you are getting the correct voltage you will need a volt meter to check this they cost around 10- 20 bucks if you have correct voltage from the wires and the conections to the motor are ok the motor is no good and needs to be replaced hope this helps...

Dryer will not turn on.


Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.
