Roper RAL6245AW0 Washer Won't Drain or Spin

My mother-in-law's Roper RAL6245AW0 washing machine quit draining or spinning. We bailed out most of the water and made sure the hoses were not blocked.

The washer fills and agitates fine, but it won't spin or drain on the rinse cycles. There are no noises of any kind (other than the timer motor), and the motor isn't even trying to turn.

The lid switch appears to be working fine, as it disables the agitation if we open the lid. (The wiring diagram on the washer is kind of hard to read, but it appears the lid switch on this model turns off everything, including the timer.) From what I could make out on the diagram, it appears to be a single pole switch, if true verifies it is working correctly.

I didn't see any belts on this model, it appears the motor attaches directly to the transmission and the pump attaches to the other end of the motor.

I tried all of the available cycles and none of the cycles will spin.

I'm guessing the timer is bad, though it seems odd the spin setting of all cycles would fail at once? And the timer is an expensive part to replace just on a "guess".

Any ideas?

    My neighbors is doing the same thing. I took apart the control panel and found that the contacts on the timer had fried. i just need to find the replacement part now. hopefully before they get back in town :)

Roper washer does not drain

Alicia7q : Faulty water pump or restriction in drain line between tub and outlet hose.

arlenekc,: That metal thing is part of the motor. What you have is a leaking water pump.

badwasher,: Check the lid switch. This machine will not spin or drain if the switch is faulty.

Washer won't drain

Mustache, sounds like you have a broken lid switch. No spin, no drain usually a sign of this. Check to see if the actuator is making the lid switch, or the switch itself is bad. Part number for the switch is 8318084. Catriver, post back.
