Roper washing machine-unbalanced spin always-how to remove panel

The roper washing machine is 5 years old. When it spins, the tub rocks back and forth making a loud noise. Have stopped it and repositioned the clothes and it still does it. I want to open the front panel to see if there is a hook broken that attaches to the tub but can't figure out how to get the front panel off. You use to be able to just pry the top up a little and flip down the front panel, but that doesn't work on this model. Suggestions?

It sounds like you have a motor coupling that is broken. There are videos on YouTube to show you how to repair this. Search for "motor coupling repair on direct drive".

My 4 year old roper washer leaves grease on clothes. On spin cycle the machine makes a screaching noise, and the clothes don't spin dry.


Possible that the belt is slipping and also there is some issue with the agitator as the gaps within seems to bring up the dirt or grease mix to the clothes.
So it is important to remove the panel and check the play on the belt, replace if the play is high and check if the agitator bearings are worn out. If so the agitator assembly must be taken out and checked.

Roper washing machine- unbalanced spin - rocking agitator


I usually stand in front of the washer and take the plams of my hands and forcefully provide a force with the heel of my hands on the side front corners and the lip comes up

Another option is to pull the washer out and remove 2 clips (usually requires quarter inch nut driver to allow the top to come up

This should allow you to get the top off to see if a spring has broken or slipped off


GOOD LUCK!

Washer wont spin


if the coupler and clutch are ok and you can hear the motor functioning, then it appears that your transmission is bad.most of the time you will see that in the days/weeks leading up to this that your cloths were more wet than usual when you took them out of the machine. Check your owners manual for warranty information. Some machines had a 5 year warranty on the transmission or gear case as whirlpool likes to call it.

Roper washer frozen drive?


I would first check the lid switch and the plunger that pushes the lid switch. If both are good I would make sure the machine is washing properly. If the machine will not wash or spin you have a bad coupling. If the washer will wash then stop at the spin it is usually a bad lid switch, or transmission. The transmission will have a 5 year warranty. It is also possible that you have an object stuck under the main wash tub. You can remove the cabinet and look for objects or you can remove the wash basket itself. Good luck with your repair.

UNBALANCED WASHER


Does it happen all the time, with no connection to laundry quantity? In case of a positive answer, it sound like a shock absorber issue. Could be that it's moved from its place or become malfunction and should be replaced. Good luck
