The second digit/character (K) indicates the year and the 2-digit numbers (07) immediately next to it indicates the week the dryer was made. The year code K is 2000 and your dryer was made on the 7th week of the year 2000 or February 2000. Click on the link below for the table of year codes of Whirlpool and Whirlpool-made appliances.

I have a roper electric dryer model number is RGL4632DWO and I have purchased the coils for it, my question is where are they located at? I don't want to tear it a part without knowing about where they...


Remove plug from wall socket.
Remove back from dryer.
On the right side you should see a sheet-metal duct/tube.
Label and disconnect wires to parts going into this duct.
Remove duct.
Heating element (coils) should be in lower portion of the duct.

Rex4635eq2 electric dryer. all switches and fuses check out. Nothing comes on and the timer doesnt move or make a clicking noise when i push the start button. what do you think? Timer? Gary


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 model res6745pqo ser.ms4808124 dryer Dryer works except no heat


You have a bad heater element, or high limit/thermostat. Check your vent for restrictions also. A restricted vent will cause higher heat and thus reduce lifetime on these componants. Rich

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.

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.

How do I know which thermal unit is the one that shuts the dryer off when the clothes are dry? one's called a cycling thermostat, another is called a fixed thermostat and the third is called thermal...


Usually the Fixed Thermostat (also known as the High Limit Thermostat) and Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) are used in conjunction to regulate and protect the heating circuits.

The Cycling Thermostat (also know as the Internal Bias) controls the amount of heat required/desired to dry your clothes.

You need to remove the rear panel of the dryer to access the heating circuits on this model dryer. With the back panel removed, the heating circuits will be on the right hand side and the blower fan assembly is located on the left. The Hi-Limit Thermostat and TCO are located on the outside of the heater box with the Hi-Limit Thermostat mounted next to the heating element terminals and the TCO located at the opposite end of the heater box. The Cycling Thermostat is located on the blower fan housing next the Thermal Fuse. It will be the metallic round component, while the Termal Fuse will be a white plastic component.

For better clarification, you can view an exploded view diagram of your appliance at pcappliancerepair.com. If you type in your model number, all the parts I've mentioned are listed under Section 3 (Bulkhead Parts). The components are listed as follows:

Item 6 - TCO/Hi-Limit Thermostat Kit (both parts should be replaced at the same time).
Item 15 - Hi-Limit Thermostat (sold separately)
Item 23 - Thermal Fuse
Item 24 - Cycling (Internal Bias) Thermostat

If you are experiencing heating problems or longer dry times, please review the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Pay particular attention to the section that discusses dryer ventilation. The majority of dryer heat related problems and failures are attributed to poorly installed, clogged, or kinked dryer ventilation. If you haven't had the ducting checked in a while, now may be a good time to do so.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a Roper dryer and it just turns off we can


first thing to do is to find out whats wrong with the cord, get to the part of the cord that goes into the machine, wires are loose. a 220volt dryer will not heat if one of the wires are loose. you need to get into machine and make sure wires are tight. this is also a safety hazzard, do not leave machine plugged in until problem is solved
