Question about Roper Washing Machines
One of four things is happening...
1. Your drain hose is too low or is too far down the stand pipe and is causing water to siphon out of the machine
2. Your water inlet valve is stuck open and will need to be replaced.
3. The pressure switch (water level switch) has failed and won't switch between fill and wash.
Does it flood the room? If not probably #1.
Does the water stop running when you unplug the washer? If so, #3
Can you only stop the water flow by turning off the house hot and cold valves? If so, #2
4. If none of the above, then you might have a clogged pressure switch hose. It is a hose that connects to the water level switch (pressure switch) on the top end and the outer tub on the bottom end. It may have gunk plugging it up on the tub side preventing air pressure build up to trigger the water level switch. If so, remove the hose from the tub and clean out the end of the hose and the air dome that is attached to the tub. What brand is your machine?
