Question about Roper RAS8445KQ Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Wont fill up with water it drains out before its full

I just got this machine used and it has done it ever since i got it. When you put your cloths in the machine and turn it to a regular wash the machine starts to fill with water but just before it gets to the right height the machine dains all the water out of the tub but it is still trying to fill with water. If you keep trying sometimes it will work and fill with water and kick in and work for a load then the next time the same thing will happen.
It is a Roper Model # RAS8245EQ1
Serial # CG1602659

If you hear the motor running when it is draining then you have a bad timer. If it just drains out and the motor is not running then you have a siphon problem which is caused if the drain hose is too low. Let me know what you find.

Spinning cycle


Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

Downy goes first than soap


I fill the washer with water first

Then open the lid put in the soap
3/4 cap full,then then 2/3 cap downy

(Both together-bleach as well- if a white load)

I add only to clear water after it fills

Then allow the water to mix the soap

Then add the cloths a few at a time

NEVER put the cloths in & add soap
on them with no water or use the silly
places on the top they say to add stuff

You only add soap etc to plain water &
no cloths & mix first,then cloths go in

Common Sense as to what is taking place

The part about the softener was just silly

It is in the water mixed with soap etc & all goes out
at one time

It is a one step deal

Water,Soap,Downy,then Cloths your done

Why am I getting more water in my front door seal than I used to?


Please reduce the water level if the clothes are sinking below and also if the drain valve is clogged or choked so that it does not drain to the end. Also check if the washer is placed tilted to the drain side to effect full drain of the water within.

MAH3000AWW Does not spin fast enough on spin cycle Clothes are still full of water when done.


hi there ..sounds like your appliance is not spinning at all........(a) check if your drain pump is working correctly..(simply fill water and turn to drain)..(b) possiblity that the clutch drive mechanism is badly worn and needs replaced
