Question about Roper RES7648E Dryer

1 Answer

Won't begin.. suspect back start switch.

Was working earlier, put another load in and pooped out. Reset the breaker from fuse box. Getting power. I can set the cycle select to time dry and hear the time click. Light inside works, appears the short is in the start putton. How can I verify or is there another culprit I am missing??

    Thanks... the relay in the back had to be replaced. The repairman said these are pretty common in Roper dryers. ($18.95 for part, $80 service call). I took the liberty of cleaning the lint, etc. when I had it pulled out. I usually do that about every 6 months anyway, so I guess I'm ahead right now. Thanks for the input.

Breaker blows when start is pushed? A shorted switch is possible, but more likely the element has failed & contacted ground inside the machine. The easiest way to tell is direct visual inspection. New elements are cheap & fairly easy to install. Check for severe lint buildup in the motor, & make sure it turns freely.

My washing machine won't star

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If you have a washer that won't start, here are some probable causes to your problem. First, make sure to check your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If nothing is tripped, you will want to make sure the washer is getting power first. You need to check the wall outlet and the power cord. You can properly test both of them with a voltage meter to make sure they are getting correct power. Wiggle the cord and see if you can get it started. You could have a break or loose wire in the cord causing your washer to not start. If it starts, you still need to change out the power cord. If the outlet is not getting power, you will need to conduct a test on that to determine the cause. You may have a bad wire or a loose wire. If you have power to the outlet and cord, make sure your fuse has not blown. You need to check your timer switch next. It may be bad or not working properly. Refer to your manual for the correct procedure. Try the washer on different cycles to see if it will start. It is possible that you have a bad lid switch. It can cause the washer to not start if it is bad. You could have a defective motor as well. If the motor has not been working correctly or making noises and other sounds, there is a good chance it has finally died out. Always make sure that the part is getting power before you change it. A voltage meter is an ideal tool to keep around the house. If a part is not getting power, even with a new part, it will not work. Make sure you test everything before making a decision. Always determine the cause by testing and not guessing.

Power interrupted during cycle. now it won't do anything. I think it needs a reset. checked fuse box, it was fine.

As a general rule, what you are describing happens if the power is interrupted for a short time and the machine doesn't get a chance to do a reset before the power comes back. There is a good chance if you power the unit off then actually unplug it from the wall and leave it 20 minutes it should do a reset and be OK. REcognising this is a built in, I would hope there is an isolator switch somewhere nearby you can flick, but if not you will have to switch the breaker that feeds the kitchen in your breaker box.

I have power in 14/2 and 14/2 out to light. how do I wire the switch. I tried putting whites together and blacks to switch but it doesn't work.

Your breaker is not tripped.
Your light bulb is working.
You have a working on-off switch that has two brass screws and a green ground screw.
That is a single pole switch. Black wires go on either brass-colored screw, and whites are twisted together.
If switch has 3 screws and ground screw, connect black wires to dark-screw and one of the brass screws.

First you should test your wires.
You have 2 cables.
Both cables have black, white, and bare copper ground wires.
One cable goes to light.
Other cable comes from breaker box.

Cable from breaker box has black-hot wire and white-neutral wire.
Turn on power and test black wire to white, and then test black wire to ground.
Tester should light up with both tests.
If tester does not light up, then breaker is suspect, or there is a short in nearby box.
Track back the short towards breaker, going one box at a time, each time testing black to white and black to ground.

Next, inside the switch box, remove the switch and connect both cables without the switch.
Black to black
White to white
Turn on power, does light turn on.
If light turns on, your switch is suspect. Connect new switch. One black wire to each brass screw, and then tie white wires togethr.
If light does not turn on, your light is suspect. Open light fixture and test black to white and black to ground again.

If light tests with power, then check your bulb
If light has no power, then wire between switch box and light is suspect.

Dryer was working the just stopped and won't start back

check your main breaker box first, see if it tripped, if the breaker looks okay then turn off the breaker for the dryer and reset the breaker switch, if this still doesn't work then a fuse has popped on the circuit board.

A hager b6 fuse has blown - normally the switch flips off and you push the switch back to on and power is restored - here the switch is limp and wont stay in the on position - i cannot see how you remove...

I have just done this myself and without blowing myself up.
1. Tools needed will be a torch and a philips screwdriver
2. Switch off your mains.
3. Check your mains are off
4. On the fuse itself they are two screws. One above the hager sign and one below. Unscrew these. The top screw keeps the wire in from the mains and bottom screw is to keep fuse screwed to the actual fuse box
5. You should be able to remove your fuse now
6. On your new fuse there will be a white piece at the back. Pull that down
7. When the fuse is removed you will see the wire which is now free and on the bottom a plug which is where your new fuse slots in.
8. Slot your new fuse on the plug and tighten the bottom screw.
9. Put your wire in place on the top of the fuse and tighten the top screw.
10. Switch your new fuse on the "on" position.
11. Put back your cover on your fuse box
12. Switch your mains back on.
