Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details the solenoid coils on the gas valve are weak and will need to be replaced.

I added a YouTube video showing the procedure for accessing and replacing the solenoid coils .

The coil kit #279834 for Whirlpool gas dryer #RGX5634KQ2 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

You did not indicate if the glow bar igniter is glowing red or not. Remove the small square plastic inspection cover below the door and then start the dryer. If you find the glow bar igniter glowing red and then fading off without any burner ignition, replace both solenoid coils mounted on the gas valve.

If the igniter is not glowing then it could have one the following component failures preventing your dryer from heating:

  • Timer
  • Hi Limit thermostat (key#15)
  • Thermal cut off (key#16)
  • Operating thermostat (key#8)
  • Thermal fuse (key#6)
  • Igniter (key#4)
  • Flame sensor (key#49)
  • Solenoid coils (key#13 and 14)

Each one of the components I listed above with key numbers can be disconnected and tested for continuity with an ohm meter. I recommend checking each component I have a key number beside. You will need to disconnect the two wires from the component before testing it for continuity. Whichever component tests open/no continuity, replace that component. Parts can be looked up and ordered from Sears PartsDirect

NOTE:Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the front and rear panels.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Why is my Roper dryer not heating?

A:

Something like this is usually caused by an open thermal fuse; if the venting is too long or restricted the unit will overheat. The thermal fuse is a safety device that will prevent the dryer from heating if a blocked vent is detected creating an overheating condition. I have provided you with the wiring diagram showing the path of voltage to the igniter to your e-mail. All of the components circled in yellow have to show closed continuity.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
