Roper washer agitator won't spin after kids loaded


Hi,
It sounds like a someone has broke the lid switch to the washer. Below I have attached a picture, Item number 9 would be the part you seek. P# 3949247 Under the control panel you will find a harness that contains 3 wires coming out of the cabinet housing. The colors should be tan, white and green. If you jump the white and tan you unit should run and think the lid switch is working. Safety way is to unplug the unit to by-pass the switch and plug it back in and select spin only. This is only to test, you need a lid switch for safety. You should replace it ASAP if this test works for you.

How do I remove the lid to a Roper RAX4232JQ top load washer? I need to replace the lid switch. Thanks


To replace the lid switch you need to unplug the washer first. Then remove 2 screws on either side of the control console. These 2 screws are on the back side of the control console and are on the far left and far right. They go in at an angle and are phillips head. They won't come out all the way, but loosen them enough so that the control console will flip up and backwards, it should not come off because it is hinged. Then you will see 2 brass spring clips, one on the left and one on the right that hold the entire case of the washer (top, front, sides, all wrap around) on. Remove those then the whole washer cabinet should remove. Be sure you unplug the lid switch located near the middle under the control console. Replace the switch and reassemble.

If this is a Whirlpool manufactured top loader (such as your Roper), the most common cause of the symptoms you describe is a lid switch malfunction. Symptoms may include, no spinning, no agitation, stopping at the rinse cycle and no draining.

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average price is about $20 - $30. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

The lid switch is on the top left side of the top cover. If it is bad the machine will fill and stop. The lid switch must be good for the machine to agitate and spin.

Try tightening the screws on the lid hinges. This should re-engage your lid switch. If it doesn't then you may need to replace the lid switch.. Hope this helps... Bill
