    Will not spin and it makes a gringing noise when it should spin

  • JH2009 Jan 11, 2009

    My Roper is model RAS8245EW1 and I'm having the same problem. Put a load in, went in later to check on it, and it was making grinding noise, but not spinning. The water had drained, but won't spin at all, just makes the funny grinding noise like something is spun out. Could it be a belt? or something more serious??

WASHER WILL WASH ON ALL CYCLES, BUT WILL NOT DRAIN OR SPIN ON EITHER CYCLE


If the timer advances normally thru the spin and drain steps of the cycle you selected, than the problem that would cause neither spinning or draining, is the wash motor is not reversing. The motors is a two direction motor. It spins clockwise for normal agitation, but counterclockwise to engage the wash drum clutch and operate the drain pump. I would ask you to check for motor sounds at all during the spin and drain cycles. The pump reversing in the spin or drain cycles can be a function of the machine's lid safety switch, or if not the motor switch or timer contacts. The lid switch is first thing to check here, for sure! If the machine seems to stop running when it comes time to drain or spin, the lid switch is your best bet!

Hope this helps.

It wont spin


Your washer has a lid switch.97a908d.jpg If the switch is broken the washer will not spin. The pump is mounted on the motor.c5ccc2f.jpg
In the wash cycle the pumps turns counterclockwise. In the spin cycle the pump turns clockwise, forcing the water out of the machine. So if that lidswitch is dead then she won't pump OR spin. This video shows how to get into your machine and the next one shows how to replace the lid switch

Won't go to spin cycle-water still in


sounds like your lid switch is defective. if it will fill and agitate but not drain/spin, the most common problem is the lid switch....your machine thinks the lid is open

Wont spin and drain


What brand is this? If it a whirlpool or kenmore (or roper, estate) It is you lid switch. A very common problem but is cheap and easy to fix. Get me the model number and i can give you the part number for the switch.

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.
