After doing on line research at other sites, I bought an inexpensive multimeter, took off the back of the dryer, and started trying to figure out what part wasn't working. I might as well have tried to diagnose a jet engine problem, I didn't have a clue. Then I went to the Part Select site, and their stats showed that in 50% or so of the cases where a Roper doesn't start, you need a thermal fuse, and should also replace the cycling thermostat while you're at it. The "how-to" video showed me exactly what the parts look like, and where they are in the machine, and the cost of the parts plus delivery was less than $50!! It was worth taking the chance for $50. The parts came in two days, were installed in five minutes, the dryer works and I'm thrilled! Part Select is the absolute best. This is the first appliance repair I've ever done. I would never have done it without you. Thank you.
