Roper RAS8244LQ Water Level Problem

Just replaced the motor coupling for this washer. Now, no matter what level it's set on, it overflows when it's filling up. It's like there's a water sensor or something that's not working. It washes, spins and all, but I have to stop it during the filling up stage and move it to the next stage manually.

There is a water level switch that has a tube that is probably disconnected or pinched or damaged in some way.

You can find the part as well as information at partselect.com.

If you need more help, post a comment.

Thanks,

Tim

My Maytag performa series LAT2500AAE fills to the medium level no matter which setting I use. It does NOT overflow.


If your infinite water level switch has a reset, perform this before changing the water level setting prior to your next load, this is usually done by rotating the knob to the reset zone, then back to your desired water level setting. If your problem still exists, you will most likely need the water level switch replaced Part# 22001776. Pleazer Appliance...

Roper top loading washer RTW440VQ1 will not stop filling up


The pressure switch, also called the water level switch, is what control the amount of water goes in the machine, If your machine is constantly filling to the overflow point, then that is your problem. Now, if water is going in and the level is staying the same then your machine drain line is lower than the pump and your siphoning out the water as it goes in. Pull the drain up a little a that should fix the problem.

Replaced the lid switch on my top loading washer and it fills with water and it still wont start.


Hello,
There are a couple things that could cause that

1) The water level switch,but if it filled to normal level and the water stopped that is pretty unlikely.

2) the motor,if it just sits there silent and no humming/buzzing noise the motor is most likely not the problem,if a heavy buzzing is heard the motor needs to be replaced.

3) again if it just sits there and wont make any sounds no matter where its set at,the timer is the very probable trouble.

I hope this helps you diagnose your washer trouble,
Gene

Roper washing machine will only run one load every 12 hours!!


It's overfilling If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve Water-level switch Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

I have a 9 year old heavy duty top load washer that keeps overflowing no matter what water level it is on. I think it might need that part. If so how do I install it?
