Question about Roper RAS8445KQ Top Load Washer
Top agitor won't turn and pull clothes down. It just turns if you spin it with no resistance.
The problem is usually attributed to worn agitator dogs. Yes, there is such a thing. They are located inside the upper agitator and act as a clutch to turn the assembly. You can purchase replacements at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the your model number and look under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub" heading for item number 18 (part number 80040). Now...if you wish to replace the entire clutch assembly, for a bit more you can purchase the entire kit (with dogs) as item number 22 (part number 285811). The following link explains how to replace them:
I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have any further questions.
