Any automobile automatic trans fluid would do fine but i am not sure how you are going to replace it.the fluid you lost when it was turned on it's side came out the vent hole on the top.unless you lost a huge amount of fluid,i would not bother.i have seen 20yr old whirlpool's(roper manufacturer)that have lost 2/3rd's of their fluid due to a bad seal run with no trans troubles at all.if you only lost a pint or less,the mach will be fine.good luck

My roper washing machine will not empy out or spin. It agitates alright but stops when it comes to emptying the water and going into the spin cycle.


If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Replace the lid switch with this part.

The lid switch is on the top left side of the top cover. If it is bad the machine will fill and stop. The lid switch must be good for the machine to agitate and spin.

Clothes still too wet after spin


Sounds like the trans has leaked oil onto the clutch. Lean machine back and look at inside of cabinet about 8 inches up. If you see oil spatter, then you need a transmition and clutch. It's usually cheaper to buy a new one.
