Hi It worked fine last night I guess. I set it for 55min. and left This morning when I checked still the cloth were kind of damp therfore I set the timer back and pressed the start button. I heard click but nothing happened. I thought it could be the door switch I played with it and still nothing happened. I unpluged the pluged it back few times and didn't work again. I checked the fuse. tried that still not helpfull. I opened the back of the dryer and completly cleaned the back and its vent syetem. still didn't help. Any Idea what it could be. Regards

Depends on if you can hear any noise when you hit the start button or turn the knob. If there is a hum or some sound then could be belt or motor problems. If there is no sound dead, then you are checking the right area, there are kill switches in different places on dryers. one is like you checked the door switch, and another may be in back when you open the cover to check. Maybe fallen out of place. These sw. are for your safety and sometimes they malfunction. Hope this help!

Hello,I just picked an electric ROPER dryer last night.I assembled it plugged it in and it worked fine.This morning I put a small load of laundry in it and it worked fine.I then put in a second load and...


The most likely part that has gone out is the thermal fuse. What will make that go out so quickly is a blocked vent causing excessive heat build in dryer. Did the dryer that this new one replaced havea similar problem of not starting or perhaps it ran but took forever to dry a load of clothing? if that was the case the venting caused the problem with both old and new dryer

Good luck
I hope this helps,if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating


Dryer drum is not rotating or rotating VERY slowly. Opened the top last night and it worked just fine, then this morning it was back to a slow turn or no turn.


There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

I installed a new belt and rollers on my dryer. Closed up the machine and loaded the dryer with clothes. The dry is not spinning but when I removed some clothes and left only a very small load it now...

I would make sure the rollers did not come off, I would as make sure it was the correct belt. If all that checks out there is a diagram on the side which shows how the belt is ran. I hope this helps Tim

Dryer is heating but clothes are not drying.

Judging by the increasing moisture, your dryer vent is not venting the moisture to the outside. Check your vent pipe for blockages. I had a person a while back with a similar problem, and this person had a lint trap on the connection that went to the exterior of their house, so check that out as well.

My Performa dryer stopped working.

Unplug the dryer.
Replace the thermal fuse and high limit switch located at the heater element.
The parts come as a set.
Raise the top lid of the dryer. The parts are at the back left side.

Dryer is not heating and will not stop running

if you were running it on timed cycle and it was still running with no heat then you have a bad timer and if you were running it on auto cycle and it was still running and its electric dryer then you have a bad element ,,, if its gas you may have a bad ignitor / larry

Setting timer on T.V. screen

I gave up last night and decided to start with a fresh brain this morning. I started from the beginning that gave the instructions how to set up the machine and I must have hit the right buttom and low and behold, I had acquired what I couldn't do last night.

Thanks for following up with me. I guess I need to give myself more time to figure things out.
