My Roper wash machine won't fill with water. You can hear it running out as it's trying to fill.


If you are right that the water is running out instead of filling then either the drain pump is bad and not forming a seal or the control panel is telling the drain pump to activate. BUT if you are not hearing the pump running then it is probably bad.

After washing cycle starts, tub starts to leak. I tilted machine backwards and can see that water is from the drum itself but cannot tell if leak starts from top or not.


It is extremely rare for the leak to come from the drum itself. It usually comes from the fill hose at the top. The hose connecting the drum to the drain pump, or the door seal. There is access from the back of the machine, or you can take the screws off at the rear on the top of the machine, and the whole top will slide off.

There is water leaking out of the bottom of the washing machine


I would check to see if the pump is leaking. Tilt the washer up and put on two peices of 2x4. Shine a trouble lite under washer and take a mirror to look under the washer. Fill 1/2 full of water and advance timer to the spin cycle. Observe to see where the water is comming from. The pump is located at the front of the washer.
If water is leaking from the pump. Replace pump.

Leaking wash machine


Depending on where exactly the leak is coming from, it could be a drain hose, drain pump, or tub seal. If this is a top-loader, here's how you can tell:

1. If the leak is coming from the BACK area under the washer, this can be caused by a leaking fill hose, dispenser hose, drain hose, or fill valve.
2. If the leak is coming from UNDER the center area of the washer, this could be your tub seal, a crack in the tub, or an air dome hose leak. NOTE: If the air dome hose is leaking, the washer will fill continuously and not turn off.
3. If the leak appears to be coming from the FRONT under the washer, this could be your drain pump, or drain hoses.

Posting a model number, could assist with determining how your washer is configured. I suspect you may have a drain pump leaking as this is the most common cause, but I want to be sure.

Washer leaking when filling up tub


Unlikely to be pump, sounds more like hose leaking, or drum seal.
Depending upon severity of leak, place a sheet of newspaper under front of m/c, pushing it as far back as you can. switch m/c on for a few secs, then switch off, remove paper and you should be able to judge where leak is.
Tilt m/c back and have a look underneath.
At 12 years old, if it looks major, I think I would replace m/c.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
