Growling is often associated with bad bearings and centering casters. Remove the access panel and check belt and centering rollers. Great time and idea to vacuum it out at time also

Check thermal fuse(white fuse on blower housing) and check heat circuit going through timer. Unplug first!

clean out the vent line and the dryer,unplug it,remove the two screws in front of the lint filter on top,then remove the vent line,remove the back panel,on the left side you'll see the metal duct that the lint filter slides down into,take out the four screws that hold it in if you didn't take out the two screws on top do it that holds the filter duct in from the top.clean the duct out,you should do this once a year if it's gas and once every 18 months if it's electric,put it back together and see how it runs,if you have a long vent line you can stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out to the outside,after you have the dryer running go outside and make sure it's blowing air outside and the flapper is opening,if it still doesn't run in auto you could have a bad timer but clean it out first and go from there.if it's blocked with lint the dryer heat won't stay on long so the timer might not advance in the auto cycle,on timed dry it counts down like a clock but on auto the heat comes on,when it reaches temp. the heat shuts down and then the timer starts to advance a little at a time then when it calls for heat the heat comes on and the timer stops advancing,it will do this until the clothes are dry so if it's blocked the heat doesn't stay on long enough to reach temp. to advance the timer.

open the door to dryer,look around the opening where you put the clothes in and send the full model number on your question you have REX4634KQ and three different models show up and parts are not the same,could possibly be a bad timer but the only way to tell is by checking with a meter

First of all, unplug the unit before working on it. Be careful inside a fuse box, dangerous voltages. It's usually safe to change fuses or flip a breaker so long as your not in a wet location. Most dryers run the heating element on 220 volts, meaning you can either have one larger breaker or you could have 2 smaller breakers or fuses. If that is the case, possibly one of these breaker "legs" has tripped. Check that first. I would sooner think one of the heating elements are open or "not heating". I would look up the Roper Model number and search for the heating elements section. Some do have a thermal fuse but I think that would cause both elements to quit. Take a look here:

Sounds like thermal cut off fuse has blown. That is indicative of airflow obstruction somewhere either internally in the dryer or venting from dryer to outside v
