    WHAT is the reason you think you need to clean lint inside the dryer?????????????????????

    There is no need to get inside for lint!
    Any lint that falls back inside Will blow out the exhaust pipe leading out the wall or burns off!
    That's why it is so important to clean the lint filter before every load!
    Who told you to open it and look for lint inside!

The circuits are on and there is electricity coming out of plug in, what else could be wrong





















when the dryer is run is it warm inside when you open it ? If it is try cleaning the vent tube and make sure its not clogged with lint if the dryer is cold inside you probably need a new heating element.

Dryer dont get hot


Try cleaning all the vents inside the dryer all the way to the outside. Be sure and clean around the blower wheel lots of things get in where the blower is pencils nails everything. They will block the wheel so it can't turn. Also vacuum the lint out of the motor. Lint most likely the problem. Hope this helps.

My Whirlpool gas dryer is not working


Instructions

1
Check that the dryer door is closing completely. Remove anything that blocks the dryer door from closing.
2
Ensure the "Start" button is pressed firmly to start the dryer cycle, the dryer is not overloaded and the clothing is not balled up. Any of these things can prevent the dryer from operating and/or drying the clothes.

3
Use a level to confirm your Whirlpool dryer is sitting flatly and evenly on the ground. Adjust the dryer as necessary for it to be level as the dryer will vibrate and make unnecessary noise when sitting unevenly.
4
Examine the inside of the Whirlpool dryer drum and in the space around the drum for loose change, pens, hair ties and other items that could have been left in the pockets of clothing. These items will cause noise and potentially cause the dryer to become inoperable.
5
Examine the Whirlpool dryer's lint trap for excess lint. Remove any lint from the trap and place it back into position. Always clean the lint trap between dryer cycles. Inspect the area around the dryer and in the ventilation and exhaust systems. Remove any built up lint and clean the area thoroughly. Built up lint is a fire hazard and can cause operating issues.
6
Check the gas shutoff valve if your Whirlpool dryer is gas powered. Ensure the shutoff valve is turned all the way to the "On" position.
7Check the electric plug and ensure it fits securely in the outlet.
8
inspect both the fuse box and circuit breaker for any electrical problems. Replace any blown fuses, if necessary, and reset the circuit breaker if it has been tripp

The dryer still runs and the drum is turning. No heat. Yesterday I did notice the outside of the dryer got very hot for a while.


The thermal cut-off has blown open due to the high-limit thermostat failure to cycle off in order to regulate the heating element temperature as the noticed extreme dryer temperature indicates. These two components are wired in series with the heating element as a safety measure to cut power to the element should the dryer temperature go extremely high like your case.

Disconnect power then make sure the lint filter is clear, the vent system is not restricted, and the inside of the cabinet is clean. A vacuum cleaner may be used to extract lint built up inside the dryer cabinet particularly the bottom. Replacing both the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat is a must but only after the all areas mentioned are cleaned.

No lint in the lint filter


Check air flow out of unit and ensure you do have some foreign object stuck in the blower wheel. UNPLUG unit, and clear out exhaust tube from dryer. Have a professional clean house vent if you cannot see where the vent exits the house. It is common on Whirlpool, top of cabinet vent opening to have objects fall into the lint screen opening and restrict airflow.

Cleaning lint


Your Roper dryer is made by Whirlpool, there is no reason to clean lint from around the heater, very little lint collects in that area. Every once in a while you can take the front off by removing 2 screws from under the lint screen, then pry up the top and there are 2 screws that hold the front on inside facing out. After removing the front you can vacuum inside below the drum.
