Oh noble Samurai, how I love your website. It has already helped me fix my washer, now for the dryer....

Roper model REX3615EW1. Dries and dries, but never stops. Does not matter if it's on timed dry or auto sense dry....goes and goes and goes...dries the clothes great and then some!

Following your gracious advice, we have THOROUGHLY cleaned the inner and outer duct work. It is directly vented to the outside through a proper vent.

Please help this poor grasshopper, she is truly tired of having to set an alarm clock to remind her to go shut the damn thing off!

Ahh, grasshoppah, Bliss Supreme has come upon you this day for the Samurai has received your plaintive plea.

The reason your dryer never shuts off is because the timer has failed. The solution is simple: replace the timer. Easy job, plug n' chug, a mere single mug on the world-famous SUDs-o-meter.

BTW, I would have linked you to the exact replacement timer you need but you reported a bad model number!

The element has to cycle off for the timer to advance in automatic cycles, , it seems to be staying on, check your heating element to see if it is grounded to the canister or the bracket it is strung thru, this will make the heat never shut off and the timer cannot advance in auto. If the element is ok see if your cycling thermostat has shorted in the closed position, not opening to turn the heating element off.
