Question about Roper RAS8244KQ Top Load Washer
My washing machine fills and drains just fine, it just will not agitate nor spin. Very aggravating as the laundry keeps piling up.
If the washer does not agitate at all, does not spin, but will still drain, this is a symptom of a broken motor coupling.
The following link explains how to replace one:
This is a very simple repair that doesn't cost much. The repair is actually much easier than you think and requires no special tools. The part number is included in the link I provided. Appliancepartspros.com carries a replacement motor coupling for about $11.
NOTE: A broken motor coupling is usually accompanied by a loud rattling noise. You can hear the motor engaging and running, but there is no tub action.
If you need an illustration, you can refer to the website I mentioned and locate item 13 under the Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor/Pump section.
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the gearcase (transmission). It takes the place of a drive belt and commonly fails on Whirlpool manufactured top loaders due to normal wear and tear. This configuration is known as a "direct-drive" system. The replacement motor couplings are more resilient and resist breaking better, because the manufacturer added a steel grommet.
If you have any questions about this repair, or if you need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

I would try and check voltage at the overload on the motor
when in spin cycle and see if you have power there..
