Roper RAX4233PQ Will start and fill with water but then suddenly stop. I think the problem starts as it stops filling and starts into the next cycle. I have emptyed the washer 3 times and tried again but it has done it everytime. Some times if I turn the load size nob it will start again for about 2 seconds and then stop again. I have removed the knob cover and checked the wireing but it all loooks ok. Please Help.

Make sure the washer fills with cold water from the beginning of the cycle because most washers have a cold only rinse cycle and if your cold water valve is bad then the machine will stop mid cycle because it cannot fill the washer for the rinse cycle. Secondly, it helps to know which washer you have so please enter more info next time you ask a question. Good luck.
The air hose from the tub to the pressure switch (inside the control panel) is either disconnected or plugged with debris. Open the control panel by removing 2 screws in the front corners and check for disconnected hose. Otherwise disconnect the hose and blow through it to see if it is plugged.
This is a common problem, your lid switch is to blame, the filling of the machine is only dependent on the timer knob being pulled out at cycle start. Once the machine fills and the level actuates the level switch to de-energize the fill valve, nothing else is going to happen until the timer motor powers up AND this is done by closing the lid to operate the lid switch, however if this switch is bad, the rest of the electrical circuit gets no power, and that is why your machine doesn't advance any further in it's cycle. Lid switch is mounted under top of machine and requires the cabinet to be properly removed for access.
water is siphoning out the drain hose ,drain pipe not high enough "must be 36 inchs"from floor or hose is inserted in pipe to far creating a suction situation ~once over the edge it cant stop...., may need a anti siphon kit on drain hose .
Hello,Sounds like a problem with either the inlet valve or the pressure switch, the way to determine which is bad... while the machine is filling pull the power plug..if the water keeps filling it's the inlet valve that is going to be bad..if it stops filling it's going to be the pressure switch. The pressure switch is located in the control panel and has a small rubber pipe attached.once you have figured which it is replace it good luck. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again..Mike
If the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

It may be a bad lid switch. Cheak with your meter for continuity.And if you need more info let me know.Also how old is the washer for there are 2 differant styles of lid switch dipending on how old the washer is. hope i helped :)
