Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Stopped Dead I have a Roper washing machine Model # RAB4232EW1. A couple of days ago I went to start it up, and nothing. Not one sound. I checked the electrical connections and fuse box and everything checked out. Anyone know why it would suddenly stop working? Just out of curiosity, how old is this model?

    It may sound obvious, but to us non-mechanical/technical types who only use the machines and could care less about the mechanics of it, always check the electrical outlet. Turns out the outlet itself was dead. Plugging the washer into another outlet proved to be the solution. I will certainly know to check the lid switch (and outlet) should it happen again. Thanks for the help.

My roper washing machine modelRA845KJQ have a fuse in it? I just stopped wrking mid wash..its full of water and will not work andwe repaced the motorand he coupling in it ndstill nohin and was wondering...

If its sitting dead... and you have no wash/fill/or spin.. I would tend to think timer. If the tub I full of water, reset the timer to wash... if it washes and then die's at the rinse... look at the lid switch.

Roper model RAB4232EW1 doesn't spin out most of the water on close. Spins and drains but leaves close too wet.

Pulloff the back of your washer sounds like you might have overloaded it and cause the belt to slip. Should be just a couple of screws when you look in with a flashlight you should see the issue if you dont start it up on a dry run and watch what happens. But I am guessing that the belt must be slipping. Let me know what you find and I hope it helps!

Fisher and paykel washer gwl 11 us

ok You have a blown Motor controller module. There could also be another fault that caused this to blow up. eg a faulty drain pump, lid lock or Diverter valve, inlet valve. you'd need to use a ohm meter to test all these. cheers

Model numer RAS6233RQ0...only get humming sound, and nothing else

yes i have a roper ras6233kg top load washer. I have not had any problem with it until about Two weeks ago, it over filled and it would only make a hummuing sound. Now it has dried out and have been working beautifully. Then Three days ago it stopped agitating,will not spin only making a loud humming noise. I guess its time to get another one.

Dropped foreign object into corner opening

no you can lean the machine backwards and should be able to remove it with out any disasembling of the unit, if it did not fall all the way to the bottom and you can not remove it it will not hurt anything
