Roper Dryer RED4400VQ1

 

This dryer would not do anything.  I figured this would be a thermal fuse issue, but not.  Of course I checked power, all good there.  I checked door switch and start button, all good. 

 

I went to the timer and did not get 220v to the timer motor.  I got 120v from 1 of the 2 black wires (to ground) going to timer motor.  Found the schematic and disconnected the harnesses to timer.  T-F (at the setting I had it on had continuity (as it was supposed to).  On the schematic I saw 1M and 2M (switch that must be at the dryer motor) that would send the other 120 to the timer motor. 

 

Bad motor?? 

 

Does the other leg of power to the timer motor come from the dryer motor?  That what it appears on the schematic if I am looking at it right.

... that would send the other 120 to the timer motor.

only when the Drum Motor is running ...

 

When the Dryer is set to run a regular Timed Dry cycle...

and Door is closed ...

measure voltage to chassis / ground from each of the following connections:

each side of white Thermal Fuse (on Blower Housing)

each side of Start Switch

The timer motor operates on 120 volts not 220 volts.

The only component in the dryer that draws 220 volts is the heating element.

I thought the same thing but the timer motor said 230v on it.

I've seen these 230 Volt timers without a resistor to be the problem alot of the time, causing the dryer not to start at all.  Remove the timer from the control panel and shake it. If you hear rattling inside the timer, the timer is indeed your problem.

Are you thinking something could be breaking down under a load?  I'm not going back to the house.  I think the lady was expecting a repair with a total cost under 100.  Yeah I know.  I told her I would do a little more research because I was stumped but she didn't wanna spend to replace the drum motor or the timer.  I'm just curious as to what the problem may have been.  I'm thinking drum motor.

The motors on these rarely go bad, the timers seem to be failing more and more lately. We didn't seem to have these timer problems as much back when they made in the USA. I see a made in China sticker on this timer.
