Question about Roper RES7646KQ Electric Dryer

Re: no heat and timer not moving

Hi - Our Roper dryer was working fine until last week.
The barrel turns and there is air moving, but no heat and the timer doesn't
move.  I'm wondering if this could be a fuse, thermostat or ??
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance, Amy

    I have the same problem, it is a gas dryer and the way you state your answer that it sounds like you are talking about an electric unit. I will check my thermal fuses and such though thanks. I have a gas dryer model number rgx4635eq1 worked great till last this week then timer stopped working and so did the heat. Ran all night

  If the timer is set for a auto dry cycle,  the timer won't advance if not heating.  You need to check for 220 volts at outlet.  It's possible to have only 1 110 volt circuit.  May be a bad breaker. or outlet.  If you have 220 volts at outlet,  you need to have an ohm meter to check continuity of the thermal fuses and the heater.   Access by removing rear panel.  UNPLUG FIRST!!!!!

What I would do is pull the dryer out and unplug the power cord. I would remove the rear cover and check the components back there for continuity.f08dda1.jpg83a4f65.jpg15ccca9.jpgIf all of that is good then the timer or breaker might be bad. Why? The timer calls for heat through the RH leg. The amp draw from the heating element arcs up the contact point inside the timer. The motor runs on 120 volts the heater runs on 240 volts. So the breaker will take a beating on the heater side of it. The dryer will hower still run. To recap It could be the heater the limits the time or an electrical problem.6db32c2.jpga2de035.jpg

Dryer Timer dial will not move but dryer works


Will the dryer move forward in timed dry? if it does not then you need a new timer. If if will advance in timed dry but does not advance in auto mode then the high limit needs to be replaced on the heater.

Roper Electric Dryer Heats but drum won't spin


Yank the filter out the top. Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing. Use a putty knife to pop the top and then remove the screws holding the front on. NOTE: raise up on the front panel slightly so you won't damage the bottom clips. Get the front out yer way and remove the drum. Clean out the dryer and oil the rollers and idler. Use this handy ROUTING GUIDE to see how to put the belt back.
