Question about Roper RAS6233KQ Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My Roper won't fill with water.

My washer worked yesterday, today It will not fill when you turn it on, however if you run the cycle a bit further it will agitate and spin. I checked the water supply and the screens on the back side. When you put it in fill mode, you can hear a buzz sound. What can I do?

Washer rinse cycle won't fill with water just buzzes top loader roper model #RAX4232PQ0

Hi, this sound's like a faulty or clogged water valve. Do get the same symptom when selecting cold water in a wash cycle ? I suspect you will. Turn your water off, remove the cold water hose and make sure it is not clogged either at the valve end ( you may need to clean the fine screen ) or the tap end. If it's all clear, you will likely require a water fill valve. Original part number # 285805 and it is usually about $20-$25. Hope this was helpful to you. Thanks for visiting "fixya" today. Good luck, macmarkus :)

Whirlpool Roper Gets to Rinse then water runs but will not fill

The contacts for the outlet pump have fused together in the programmer so that as soon as you apply power the pump motor starts running.

Remove the power first

Quick check is to take off the back panel locate the pump and remove one of the supply leads
put some insulating tape around the end of the lead you have taken off in case it shorts out then put the power back on and try the machine, it should then fill and start to agitate .

If that works then you need a new programmer .

Turn off the power , replace the lead and then put the machine back on to drain out the water

Water runs contiuously... tub never fills...cycle doesn't start.

Hi, You need to reset the drain hose. It needs to be over the water level in the machine. If you have it in a sump pump, it needs to be out of the water in the sump. If I can help you further, please let me know

Top load roper washer water will not cut off after filling machin

The water valve is the part where your water hoses connect.

Replace the water valve if the water is constantly running after the machine has been turned off.

If it only overfills during the fill cycle, check your water level switch and connecting plastic air pressure hose.

Roper washer ras6233kq

Hello, So unit should fill with water though right? Just no spin and drain. more than likly you have a bad lid switch. look and see if there is a hole somewhere on the frame. usually on the lid you will see a actuator that plunges into the lid switch. When you close the lid you should hear a click if there is no click you a bad lid switch.
